How to measure correct size

Jacket Size Guide

1 : Bust

The bust is the most important body part for jacket measurement. Please stand up straight and relax your arms. Optimally, you can ask another person to wrap a tape measure around your chest at its fullest area. Round the measurement to the nearest whole number. Make sure it has a little room (max. an inch) to move. For casual jackets, you can add an additional inch.

2: Waist

To calculate your waist circumference, use a tape measure. Start at the top of the hip bone, and wrap it around your waist at navel level. Ensure that it’s not too tight and that the tape is parallel with the floor. Don’t hold your breath while doing it.

3: Hips

Stand sideways to a mirror and identify the fullest part of your hips. Wrap a tape measure around your widest area. The tape measure should be loose enough so that there is no skin depression. Record the measurement where the tape measure meets its end.

General size guide:
S   =   32-34 cm
M  =   34-36 cm
L   =   36-38 cm
XL  =  38-40 cm

I have used GiLo boardshorts extensively for the past three years. These products are amazingly comfortable quick drying and non chafing. I use them daily for surfing, yoga, freediving, open water swimming and trail running. The best part is they are made with recycled plastic bottles.

Super happy with my Gilo purchases. Started with a pair of board shorts and now have 5! 😎 Extremely comfortable, they dry quickly and the best part, being environmentally friendly. Don’t hesitate ordering. Highly recommended!

I am INLOVE with my Gilo Jacket. I’ve had it for over a season now through all my adventures around the world in the past year and it’s officially my go to travel jacket. Not too hot, not too cold and perfect to style with. I’m lucky to have a grabbed a black one which pretty much goes with every outfit I own. It feels good not having to buy another puffer this season as My Gilo had ticked every box! Thanks Gilo ❤️

I’ve bought my second pair of Gilo shorts and they are honestly my favorite pair of shorts. They’re super comfy. They dry so fast. I relax in them, I go to the beach, I skate, I surf. They work amazingly for everything.

I have one of their cruelty-free puffer jackets and I absolutely love it. IMO it's actually warmer than down plus it looks and feels great!
