Montane Featherlite Velo Sizing Help

Postby crankycrank » Sun Nov 04, 2012 01:18 am

Trying to determine proper size. I'm 5'10", 36" waist, 41" chest. Montanes' chart says Large is right for my chest size but my gut may be a little too big. Do these have a little extra room in the waist or are they a fairly close fit? I've also seen it mentioned that you should order up a size larger as their chart isn't quite accurate. Unfortunately the nearest shop to carry Montane is 500mi away.

Hi,

I purchased it via CRC, have the bright yellow one in medium. Ordered a M and a L, and was able to return the L due to the free return policy in the UK.

As a medium, I am 5ft 8, 32-33 wasit and 38/39 chest. Never bothered to try the L since M was the better. M has generous length/ height and elasticated waist. I think L would might just fit (hope they have a refund/ exchange policy. Good luck!

I bought a large which has never been worn and I have now purchased a medium. Mine is black/charcoal with full zip. I am 5'10", 34" waist, 12 1/2 stone 40 inch chest. The medium fits better for me over summer thin jerseys and gilets and I wanted it figure hugging so that it does not catch the wind. If I wanted to wear it over a winter thicker jacket I would keep the large. Similarly, when I bought the large I had a bit of a stomach and weighed 14 stones. The large is for sale.

Thanks for the replies, very helpful. Looks like the L is a safe bet for me.
