Faction - Men's Ski and Snowboard Jackets Size Chart

Faction ski jackets are designed to fit loose and big.  If this is the look you want, there is no need to go up a size because Faction have already allowed for this.  If you are between sizes, it's probably better to go down a size because the cut of the jackets is very generous. We are confident in Faction ski jacket sizes because:

    ●  We have tried the jackets on ourselves, in a full range of models and sizes.

    ●  We see customers wearing Faction jackets in our Ski Shop

    ●  We have been selling Faction for years.

    ●  We monitor customer returns.

The 'Fit'

Faction  ski jackets come in three 'fits'. Check the product description on each jacket to see which applies.

  • Standard Fit. 
    This is Faction's classic fit, used in the majority of their range and designed to provide enough space for layering whilst not being overly baggy.
  • Standard Tech Fit. 
    Very similar to the standard fit however this fit balances modern style with a slightly tighter fit to support the use of harnesses & packs.
  • Progressive Fit. 
    Progressive Fit is slightly longer in the body and straighter in the waist giving a more baggy fit.

How to Measure Your Chest

Wear just an undergarment or nothing at all.

Stand up straight with your arms hanging by your sides and breath normally.

Run a soft tape measure under your arm pits over the largest part of your chest and across your shoulder blades.

The tape measure should be snug, but not tight.

How To Measure Your Chest

Jacket Dimensions

We strongly recommend that you never measure a jacket to determine the size you need.  Actual garment sizes differ substantially from the dimensions quoted in the table at the top of this page because the manufacturer makes allowances for:

    ●  The wearing of mid and / or base layers beneath the jacket.

    ●  The freedom of movement required for snowboarding and skiing.

    ●  The cut and style of the jacket.

    ●  The insulation which may or may not be included in a particular jacket.

All of the above will differ depending on a jacket's specific design.  If you have a jacket at home which fits you well, please do not attempt to measure it to help you choose the size of your new jacket - it will not work even if your existing jacket is the same make or similar style to the one you'd like to buy.
