The Quick Guide
How does our clothing fit?
We aim for all our clothing to always be true to size, therefore we recommend that you choose your usual size. However, if the garment has a different fit, this will be clearly stated in the garment description. When shopping for a jacket, we generally think it is better to go up a size if you are hesitating between two, as you will want to have a small air gap in the jacket to accommodate a mid-layer.
What's the difference between our autumn & winter jackets?
Our autumn and winter jackets differ in material, fit and appearance. Which one you should choose is based entirely on what your intended use of the jacket is. Our jackets are available in both water repellent or water resistant, and in RDS down or polyester materials. In the end, all that matters is what style and type of jacket you want. The most important thing is that you love the jacket as you are the one who will wear it every day.
Which hiking jackets should I choose?
We offer a variety of hiking pants, so we understand that it can be difficult to know which one to choose. What differs between the different trousers is the material, number of pockets, zips, ventilation, whether they have reinforced knees and how water resistant the trousers are. We recommend that you choose trousers taking into account your needs, function and the type of fit you want.
When should I buy waterproof clothing?
We have everything from water-repellent to waterproof trousers and jackets, how you choose depends entirely on what you will be using the garment for. On all our garments there is a water indicator which shows approximately how water repellent or waterproof a garment is, this is to help you in your decision. For example, if you’re going to be out walking in the rain, we recommend choosing a jacket that has between 5,000 and 10,000 water columns. To make it simple the higher the number the better. But if you want a jacket that can withstand a little drizzle to and from work, you’ll just have to choose one that’s purely water-repellent.
Which pile jacket should I choose?
We have a number of different pile jackets and it’s not always easy to know which one to choose. What distinguishes the jackets is whether they have a full or half zip and whether they are lined or not. Which pile jacket you choose depends entirely on what you want to use the jacket for. If you want it as a mid-layer, we recommend our fullzip model, and if you want a warmer jacket, we recommend our lined pile jackets. If you’re looking for a pile vest instead, we recommend our fantastic Knippla vest.
