Everyone has been there, trying to figure out what size to get for their soft goods only to realize the size they ordered was either too small or too large. Lets face it, almost, if not every, company makes their products differently so no two companies can have the same sizes. I found the sizing charts for Dye, Valken, Empire, Invert, BT, PE. It may be off a little, but this is a much better idea than just guessing. Hope this helps!
1. To get the best fit, use a flat tape measure and have someone help you.
2. Stand naturally and keep the measuring tape comfortably loose.
3. If you're unsure of your measurements, always go one size larger to allow for movement, elbow pads, and under armor.


Chest
Measure your chest an inch below the arm pit across to the other armpit.

Inseam

Standing up straight, measure from your crotch straight down the inside of your leg to the top of your foot.

Waist
Measure your waist circumference at the height you prefer to have your waistband.

Arm Length
Measure your arm length from the centre of your back/neck to the desired cuff position.

Inside Leg
Find a pair of pants that fit you as desired and measure from the bottom of the crotch to the bottom of the leg. For shorts measure from the crotch to the desired length.

Leg Length
Measure the overall length from the top of the waist down one side of your leg.

Good stuff. I'm favoriting this in my browser for the next time I'm ordering soft goods. This info should be pinned somewhere

Do the planet eclipse sizes seem big to anyone else? All they sizes even in the casual clothing (its not on here but its on the sizing chart on pe's website) seem to be way big? Are the charts right? Can someone who owns casual clothing and jerseys from planet eclipse clear this up.

It could be that they changed their sizes but didn't change their chart.

Found the below link for an average on paintball sizing charts while trying to find a sizing chart for Sly.
http://www.paintball...size-chart.html

I skimmed and compared some sizings to the one's already listed here and it seems to give a nice brief overview. It looks legit. Has anyone tried the above link before? Should/Could that be added to the sticky?

Yes.. a Valken sizing chart that doesn't have the Zulu pants in it. Theres a difference between the two valken pants listed, so theres a good chance that there would be a difference between a third pair as well. Thanks though for your extremely useful reply.

I found it for you directly from the Valken website. The sizing is roughly the same.

Can't give you an exact answer but i've read some reviews that might help you.

These shoes are comfortable! I usually wear between a 9.5 - 10 depending on the shoe, and the size 10 in these exalt cleat is a perfect fit for my foot. The umbro soccer cleats I have made seemed to be squeezing my toes together, where these cleats give you the necessary room at the end of the shoe. One thing to get used to is walking on these, since the cleats are at the front and the back is a track shoe the front seems to sit a bit higher than the back and it's a weird setup to get used to at first. After about 10 minutes of walking around I get used to the feeling, and it now feels normal.


The sizing is a bit limited on the cleats. I wear 12.5 in Nike running shoes and my soccer cleats are size 12 and the Exalt 12's are a very snug fit. They wear in a bit over time but just be aware they run small.

im 6'3 around 250 lbs and I normally wear jeans that are around 40-42 waist and 34-36 Length (inseam?), I take it most of these paintball pants wont fit me? even in XXL range as to me the 32 inseam seems really really short? Specially since i was really interested in the Dye C12 pants.

I normally see pants being worn a little baggier so you might be able to get away with a few inches. Also, if there is a brand you really want but the inseam is a little short just wear longer socks if that doesn't bother you.

Otherwise the only pants that I see working are the Empire XL+ or the PE XL+. Hope this helps!

I have a pair of empire contact pants, they are big around the weist but i put a belt on and then put my pack over my belt tightly. Is there anything i can wear under my pants to take up some space? Or is it normal for them to feel a little baggy. I wear khakies all day so im use to a snug fit.

Slide shorts or a towel around your waist.
