Maier outdoor trousers come in three leg lengths. Maier differ from other brands in that each leg length is not only shorter or longer, but the cut conforms to the relevant proportions. That means that the form of knee fits perfectly in the knee and the volume at thigh is tuned to the particular figure.

Because of this they assign a size number to their every 'fit'.  For example (using the chart above and height guide below), if you are looking for a waist size of 29" and you stand over 5'9" then Maier's recommended fit would be a size 76.  For a UK 14 standing at 5'3" the recommend size would be 20.    

  • Short:  These are cut a little shorter with respect to the total proportions. Short sizes fit best for those under 156-168cm | 61-66"

  • StandardThe graduation between sizes has continually been adjusted, and has been found best over the decades.  Standard sizes fit best for those between 168-176cm | 66"-69" 

  • Long:  Here, the leg length is adapted to the body size.  Long sizes fit best for those taller than 176cm | 69" 

In Our Opinion

The Maier size chart is accurate and reliable.

We are confident in the fit of Maier trousers and shorts because:

  • We have tried them on ourselves, in a full range of models and sizes.
  • We monitor customer returns.
  • We see customers wearing the pants and shorts in our Rock Climbing/Outdoor Shop

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.
