Clothing size

I would like to know why REI often don't carry xs size for men from various brands (e.g., Northface, Arcteryx, Patagonia, etc.,)?

@Hiker55 Thanks for reaching out!

Thank you for the question and for helping us understand that maybe we’re missing something our customers would appreciate. While the industry standard for menswear is S-XXL, we are learning a lot about what our customers need and want in terms of sizing. We are working with our own REI Co-op Brand, as well as with our vendors, to ensure we have products in sizes that are reflective of what our customers want. In the meantime, the good news is that REI does have a special order option available at your local REI store which allows you to order, through REI, a product from one of our vendors that we do not have assorted.

The outdoor industry is doing a lot of exciting work around extended sizing and while most of that is focused on larger sizes, the change has been driven by questions and feedback like yours. We have shared your feedback with our buyers, thanks for taking the time to ask your question!

I hope this helps, have a great day!


At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
