OUTERWEAR FIT GUIDE
We have a one of the largest selections of snow outerwear online, as well as 2 store locations in Brisbane CBD and on the Gold Coast. We have knowledgeable staff with years of experience to give you all the information you need to help make an informed decision.
Snowbiz know the importance of outerwear that keeps you warm and dry, looks good, and feels great. To feel great, it must fit well. Good fitting outerwear means outerwear that fits your body type, your use, and your style. All three of these should be taken into consideration when determining which fit is best for you.
With so many outerwear brands available, and each with its own set of fits, it can be difficult to know how a jacket or pant actually fits. You may also know or have heard of certain brands having a tighter or a looser fit. Keep in mind that all brands change and evolve, and although some brands do tend to fit a certain way, the same brand may make a range of fits from very slim to very loose. Don't worry; we have standardized fit across the board, making it easy for you to get the right fit.
We break outerwear fit into three basic fits – Slim, Regular and Loose Fit

This tighter fit is for those that want a flattering / slimming style. Fabrics that are used in recent years have the ability to stretch 2 or 4 way to give you maximum movement and comfort.
When you buy a regular fit, you're buying a product that's not too tight, not too baggy, but right in the middle. Most people prefer this fit, with a traditional fit, you can expect:
Outerwear with a baggier fit is designed to have more coverage all around, while maximizing room for layers underneath and more room to move and not fee restricted in anyway. With a baggier fit, you can expect:
In addition to Regular, Loose, and Slim fit, we also classify jackets as Waist-length, Hip-length, and Thigh-length. Think of these as Short, Regular, and Long, respectively. These are to point out jackets with length that might not always go with the fit. For example, a jacket may be of regular fit but with additional length. Length is an important spec to consider when shopping for jackets as some body types require a jacket that is short and wide and others, one that is long and slim.
We break jacket length into three standard lengths:
