The size Medium and XL jackets fit Huey and Dewey, our Fit Check mannequins very nicely, but they offer a snug fit like other European brands!
We put together the size chart below to help you choose a size based upon your chest and belly measurements. Choose a size that is big enough for both your chest and belly. For most people, you’ll find you need the same size you wear in men’s clothing. Using our standard sizing advice will give you a comfortably snug fit. If you find yourself between sizes in the chart, I’d suggest you choose the larger.

Our Two Cents
The Held Sixty-Six jacket is a sharp textile style that some will enjoy however it has some sorta dumb features that most will dislike.
Gosh, I hate to start out a review like that, but here what I see that is wrong here: 1) the material used in this jacket does feel like waxed cotton, but rather it feels like ordinary textile material; 2) The collar closure is a strap and buckle setup that is almost completely unusable. Its a rudimentary roller buckle arrangement which is hard to work with and offers almost no adjustability. Also, if you leave it unbuckled, it will drive you crazy flapping against your neck and making noise; 3) There is a big metal “Held” badge riveted to the rear tail of the jacket that is sure to scratch something either on your bike, in your house or car. Unfortunately you can’t remove it.
So for all those reasons, I think this jacket is a bust. We’ll sell it if you’d like to buy it though. :: Paul, 01-07-19
Add a back protector: We’ve had issues sourcing the back protectors offered by Held, so we aren’t offering those at this time. But in checking the back protector pocket sizes on the jacket, the KR series choices from Alpinestars are a perfect fit and frankly offer more options. For a lighter weight jacket like this, I’d recommend the KR-CELLi or KR-1i so the weight and thickness of the back protector doesn’t overwhelm the jacket chassis, but the KR-2i works as well if you are really concerned about getting the very most rugged back pad you can. Take the link below to the KR-CELLi back protector.
