Obermeyer Fit Profiles & Descriptors
Get to Know Obermeyer's Fit Terms
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 aesthetic 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 insulation helps to minimize the over-loading of thick layered garments; the engineered locations effectively increase body heat where needed while maintaining liberal movement.
Built in 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
RELAXED FIT: Generous fit for extra layers and full motion.
