Outdoor Research will introduce extended and plus sizing in a range of base layers, insulation and shells for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022. The offering is in partnership with a panel of six advisors working with its R+D team.
“This is about getting people outside—people whose outdoor experiences are compromised by the lack of outdoor clothing that fits and performs well,” said Liz Wilson, VP of product and R+D team member. “To make sure we are meeting their needs, we partnered with a group of advisors representing this long-underserved community of guides, athletes and adventurers, and with their help, we begin a journey toward empowering outdoor adventures for all.”
The brand’s F21 extended sizing program includes sizes ranging from XXS to XXXL for its core styles including the Helium Rain Jacket and Pants, Snowcrew Jacket and Pants, 700-fill Coldfront Hoodie and Vest, Alpine Onset base layers, Trailmix Pullover and Full Zip, and Feedback Flannel.
The S22 plus-size collection extends sizing from 1X to 3X and 16W to 24W and offers a graded fit that is proportionality larger through the chest and stomach. The collection includes OR’s Helium Rain Jacket, Aspire II Jacket and Pants, Cirque II Pants, Helium Insulated Hoodie, Echo Hoodie, Echo T-Shirt, Astroman Sun Hoodie, Ferrosi Pants, and Ferrosi Shorts.
The company’s goal is to evolve its product collections to be more size-inclusive beyond F21/S22 with continued plus-size offerings. For more product information, go here.
