In Our Opinion

Sizings tend to vary between brands and the above size information is designed to help you choose the correct Outdoor Research product. The measurements given correspond to equivalent body measurements, not the dimensions of the garment.

Outdoor Research come in three fits, standardised across their entire apparel line.  Be sure to choose the style most suited to your chosen activity for optimum fit and comfort.

Trim Fit: Trim fit, loose enough for layering with freedom of movement.  Great for backcountry skiing and snowboarding, mountaineering and running.

Standard Fit: Moderate fit - not too tight nor loose.  Fits over base and mid-layers for freedom of movement.  Great for trekking, hiking, travel and casual wear.

Relaxed Fit: Loosest fit.  Roomier and more progressive fit.  Designed with a longer length and softer drape.  Great for backpacking, hiking, skiing and casual wear. 

We are confident in the fit of Outdoor Research garments because:

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

How to Measure Your Chest

  • 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 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.
Measure Guide

Jacket Dimensions

We strongly recommend that you never measure a jacket to determine the chest 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 skiing and snowboarding
  • 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.  A jacket's physical dimensions will always be significantly greater than your actual chest measurement but this difference will also vary from jacket to jacket.
