Size Up!

The sizing chart on Arc'teryx' website states that a Medium will fit 31" - 34.5" waists, and that the ideal fit is with a one inch overlap in the ends of the waist belt. Well, my waist is 32.5" around, and a medium barely fits on me with a two inch GAP between the ends of the waist belt.

I suppose I'll be exchanging this for a large before I get a chance to climb in one, since I'm not about to climb with two inches of 1/2" webbing digging into my waist.. Good news is it looks great and is SUPER light. I look forward to getting the right size!

Don't know where these size up comments are coming from....I have a 32.5" waist and a medium fits me PERFECTLY, while the large I tried on was swimming. I say order true to size.

I had the same issue. I have 32.5" waist so I ordered the medium and I have about a 2" gap as well. Hopefully the large gives me the 1" overlap required for the ideal fit.
