How Your Kit Should Fit

Some general rules of thumb when looking at the fit of your technical outerwear. These are the benchmarks you want to hit. Your individual style then takes it one step further. *Note: the best way to test the fit of your gear is to do so with your baselayers, midlayers, and gloves on.

Sleeve Length

Holding your arms straight out in front of you, the edge of the sleeve cuff should reach just beyond the middle of the back of your hand.

This may seem a bit long without all your gear on. The length keeps your cuffs in place when you are actively moving and/or falling (yep, we all do it).

Body Length

With your arms at your side, the hem should cover the hip, level with the crotch in the front to account for coverage during movement.

If you are looking for even more length, choose the "Past the Hips" option in the designer tool.

Neck Circumference

The neckline should sit flat and comfortable on the body, while still allowing enough room for your chin when zipped up.


While reaching forward, you should feel minimal tightness between the shoulder blades, allowing for a full range of motion.

Remember to test the fit with your other layers as our shells are designed to accommodate that extra bulk on your body.

Fit Style: Trim

This is our fit style with a close-to-body feel and a full range of motion. Choosing "Trim" will give you less volume for reduced bulk, slight body contouring and waist shaping, and the shoulder seam at the natural position.

Reason for Choosing:
Personal style. Reduced weight for performance. 

Can be Worn With: 
Baselayers or light midlayers

Fit Style: Regular

Regular is a true-to-size fit for unrestricted movement and versatile layering options. This features minimal waist shaping, and a shoulder seam that sits slightly past the natural position.

Reason for Choosing:
Classic style. More versatility in layering.

Can be Worn With:
Insulated midlayers

Jacket Length: At the Hips

Classic jacket length lands at your hips at the widest point. The length accommodates for movement without exposing your lower back to the snow (brrrr). Remember, this stuff is all made to measure, so this is the right length to choose unless you want a "long" jacket style.

Jacket Length: Past the Hips

This option adds 5cm / 2in in length to your jacket past the hips. This is a great option for someone looking for extra coverage and style points.

Getting Measured Couldn't Be Easier
