All the actual measurements given on the site as "armpit to armpit x 2" refer to the measurements of the garment and not the size it will fit.
The best way of checking if an item will fit is to measure a similar garment you have which fits well and compare the measurements.
When we give the "Armpit to armpit x 2" on an item it is measured directly at the top of the side seams (armpit to armpit) laid flat, then the measurement is doubled, giving the circumference.
If we state that an item is labelled "to fit xx" / XXcm" please check this against your own measurements.

How to return your order:
A great mid-layer jacket, breathable because of the grid. Well made with excellent pockets. If you choose your normal size it is sized to go over a thin or medium base layer, or you can size up to go over a light mid layer. I am a 40 inch chest standing 5ft 8 and medium fits closely; just right for me. Works perfectly with the Delta jacket on top for wind resistance!
Fits spot on with the size chart its not a tight fight nor was it super loose. It breathes well without bleeding off heat and has a good main zip that doesn't give you a hard time trying to get it closed.
