How NATO sizing works

NATO sizes are made up of 6 digit numbers which represent metric cm sizing for different parts of the body. This is how many army products are sized in Europe, so it’s worth being aware of the conversions. They are structured as below.

NATO Jackets & Shirt Sizes

With shirts and jackets, NATO sizes will be displayed as ‘xxx/yy’ where ‘xxx’ is your full height in cms (not the length of the garment) and ‘yy’ is your chest size in cms.

NATO Trouser Sizes

Trousers are sized as ‘xx/yy/zz’ where ‘xx’ is your waist size in cms, ‘yy’ is inner leg size in cms and ‘zz’ is seat size in cms.
