I'm not sure what you mean - Common Projects use the same sizing convention as the Butteros (EU) and I would recommend your CP size for all of our Butteros except for the side zips, in which case I would say 1/2 size down from your CP size.

If you were looking for a VI or VII then you're in luck - they aren't actually sold out but just had an inventory error on the back-end (sorry G!) That said, quantities are still very limited on these items.
