Measurement guide for accurately determining your fit.
Obermeyer Fit Profiles and Descriptors
For over 75 years, Obermeyer has emphasized “fit” to create the ultimate synergy between design and function. Our design team incorporates innovative styling, specialty fabrics and new technology to enhance the critical motions of an active lifestyle. Our master fit technicians anatomically pattern each garment with optimal seaming to provide an appealing fit with unrestricted movement. The end result—finely tailored garments with the highest functional performance.
Our design and fit process is in Aspen — for us, the ultimate inspiration and ideal real-world testing environment. Every prototype is vigorously tested for fit, function and style on models and on the mountain. The fit is refined prior to our skilled pattern team creating a wide range of fits. Rest assured that once a customer puts on a garment in a dressing room its subsequent performance will be appreciated.
Obermeyer’s Body Mapping of Insulation helps to minimize the over-loading of bulky insulation where it is not required; the engineered locations effectively increase body heat where needed while maintaining ease of movement.
Full-Motion™ Articulation means the jacket has been constructed so the sleeves are articulated by a minimum of 12 degrees at the elbow. Thereby further reducing the pull/stretch at back of arm and shoulder.
PERFORMANCE FIT: Contour fit for dynamic motion
ACTIVE FIT: Athletic fit engineered for full motion
REGULAR FIT: Functional fit for comfort and full motion
Teen Extended Sizing
We design our ski wear products to be worn multiple seasons, with reinforcements and durable fabrics. Knowing this was still not always feasible for growing teens, we developed the innovative Extended Wear System for teen ski clothing.
This proprietary system features a simple and unique way to lengthen pant hems and powder cuff up to two inches, simply snip the EWS colored threads, extending the life of the pant as the teen grows.
I-Grow™ Extended Sizing
We design our kids' clothing to be worn multiple seasons, again and again, and yet with growing children, that's not always practical. To extend the longevity of our garments and support families, we developed our innovative I-Grow™ system. This proprietary system features a simple and unique way to lengthen the sleeves and cuffs up to two inches. Snip the I-Grow™ colored threads and your child will be ready for yet another season of outdoor fun !
