With so many outerwear brands available, and each with its own set of fits, it can be difficult to know how a jacket or pant actually fits. What one brand calls "athletic" another brand may call "baggy". You may also know or have heard of certain brands having a reputation for a tighter or a looser fit. Keep in mind that all brands change and evolve, and although some brands do tend to fit a certain way, that same brand may make a range of fits from very slim to very loose. Don't worry; we have standardized fit across the board, making it easy for you to get the right fit.
If you can't stand the thought of your pant legs touching the ground or your jacket bunching at the chest when you bend over, then you're going to need a slim fit. With a more technical fit, you can expect:
This tighter fit, sometimes referred to as "alpinist," has a more minimalist look and feel that's grown more and more popular in the techy or fashion forward circles of our sports. You'll also find many of today's softshells and technical layers tend to be an alpine fit. Slimmer profile shredders should definitely check out some slim fitting options.
When you buy a regular fit, you're buying a product that's not too tight, not too baggy, but right in the middle. If you're a little unsure of what fits you best but have an average build, shop around for a regular fit. With a traditional fit, you can expect:
Outerwear with a baggier fit is designed to have more coverage all around, while maximizing room for layers underneath. With a baggier fit, you can expect:
In addition to Regular, Loose, and Slim fit, we also classify jackets as Waist-length, Hip-length, and Thigh-length. Think of these as Short, Regular, and Long, respectively. These are to point out jackets with length that might not always go with the fit. For example, a jacket may be of regular fit but with additional length. Length is an important spec to consider when shopping for jackets as some body types require a jacket that is short and wide and others, one that is long and slim.
