HOW DO ALPS & METERS GARMENTS FIT AND HOW CAN I DETERMINE MY SIZE?
Alps & Meters garments are generally built to a standard American fit. It is advisable to take your normal size for most garments, and to take a size smaller if you usually wear European sized garments.
A size guide can be found on every product page immediately under the size selector. This guide displays the actual measurements of the garment in inches.
The Alps & Meters team is always standing by to assist with any questions regarding sizing and can make customized recommendations based on our extensive knowledge and experience with these garments.
CAN I SKI IN THESE GARMENTS?
Yes. At Alps & Meters, our approach to product development is different than systems employed by other outerwear brands. Our creative philosophy is called “Forged Performance” and it is designed to fuse traditional garment construction methods with natural materials and contemporary technologies, such as water-repellent/waterproof wools and leathers, and windproof/waterproof membranes, to create performance alpine garments .
The intent of every Alps & Meters product is to offer first class performance and protection expressed through a timeless lens of alpine tradition. Please visit our Forged Performance page to learn more about Alps & Meters' product philosophy.
WHAT IS A 10K/10K MEMBRANE?
The interior of every Alps & Meters outerwear garments contains a waterproof membrane, which works in tandem with the weatherproofing capabilities of the exterior of the piece. The 10K/10K waterproof rating is a metric used to define the water resistance and breathability levels of this unique technology.
To technically describe the water resistance threshold of the technology, a 1” x 1” tall tube would need to be filled with 10,000 milliliters (32.8 feet) of water before the membrane would start to allow water to pass through and reach the body.
