DC ski and snowboard pants come three 'fits'. Check the product description on each set of pants to see which fit applies.

  • Tailored: Not tight, just right. This fit offers slimmer proportions while providing complete comfort, room for layering and absolute freedom of movement.

  • Standard: The perfect balance. This fit offers classic, roomy comfort with no unecessary bulk. Atriculated knees provide both form and function.

  • Relaxed: Look like a pro. This fit offer a looser, DC team rider-approved fit that guarantees maximum mobility and ample sag.

In Our Opinion

The DC size chart is accurate and reliable.

We are confident in the fit of women's DC ski and snowboard pants because:

  • We have tried the pants on ourselves, in a full range of models and sizes.
  • We monitor customer returns.
  • We see customers wearing the pants in our Snowboard/Ski Shop
  • We have been selling them for years!

How to Measure Your Waist

  • Wear just an undergarment or nothing at all.
  • Stand up straight with your arms hanging by your sides
  • Breath normally and run a soft tape measure around your waist just about in line with your belly button. The tape measure should be snug, but not tight.

How to Measure Your Inside Leg (Inseam)

  • Wear just an undergarment or nothing at all.
  • Stand up straight with your arms hanging by your sides and your feet shoulder width apart.
  • Ask someone to help you to measure from your pelvis to the floor

Snowboard / Ski Pant Dimensions

The waist band size, as physically measured on a on a pair of snowboard or ski pants, will rarely be the same as that quoted by the manufacturer, as the manufacturer quotes the waist measurement of the person the pants are designed to fit, and the waist band rarely aligns with a person's natural waist line.  If a manufacturer quotes a 34" waist, the pants should fit you if you have a 34 inch waist, but the waist band on the pants, depending on the cut of the pants, may not actually be 34 inches.

When you measure the inseam on a pair of snowboard or ski pants, it should be similar to your own inside leg measurement but people often wear snowboard or ski pants with shorter inseams than their inside leg measurement or their normal street trousers because:
a) Snowboard and ski boots are bulky and rise up your leg a fair way. 
b) It's the fashion to wear your pants with the crotch low down towards your knees so, if you are one of these people, the inside leg measurement makes precious little difference.  
People also wear pants with extra long legs if they like the bunched up look.
