Eider fits true to size...but in a nice articulated cut. The North Face and Patagonia tend to fit a bit looser with a boxier cut. Eider is going to fit more like Arc'teryx. My husband is 6'2", athletic, with broad shoulders and he wears an Large in Eider. Hope that helps!

Yes, I think the XXL would be a good fit. I don't know the exact sleeve length, but Eider sleeves tend to be a bit longer anyway (by design, for more protection at the glove connection)
My husband is 6'2.5", 175 and he wears a Large. Fits him perfectly.
Looks like the Abyss in XXL is available now!
I love how deceiving these pants are. They are actually a full ski featured, technical shell pant. But the look is all street style...
The DEFENDER membrane makes them completely waterproof/breathable/seam sealed (10k,10k)
Internal thigh venting, scuff cuff, gators, removable retro suspenders all add to the features--but the fabric itself feels like a Carhartt coat. They are not insulated, just lightly lined with Cormax (super wicking material) So if you love skiing in a shell pant but are sick of the super techy, bright look....this is an awesome choice! Freeskier mag agrees (see pic)
I love the EIDER Montmin down jacket, because the cut and fit are feminine and flattering. Eider was founded in the 1960's in France by a tailor.....and that heritage is really apparent on this jacket. The seaming detail, and paneled construction give the jacket a very nice fit.
It is so NOT the square front, square back, with a cylendar sleeve sewn on like so many down jackets out there. This 550 fill down jacket is not overstuffed, but is still very warm. The soft outer fabric feels like a brushed twill, with almost a peach fuzz feel. It's DEFENDER (Eider's membrane) so it is waterproof and breathable. The fabric also makes it a lot more abrasion resistant than a nylon down jacket.
Since it is a tailored cut, some women may find they want to go up a size....just to account for wearing heavier sweaters/fleeces underneath. If that's not your style, and you want to wear lighter sweaters, shirts underneath than I recommend buying true to size.
This is the perfect jacket for around town, to the office, apre ski...you name it!
SKIING magazine pick...Also hit the buyers guide recommendations for Powder and Freeskier. The results are in and the Spencer is a sick shell from EIDER (growing French brand)
This Eider Gore Tex Pro shell is awesome for the all mountain skier.
The improved abrasion resistance and breathability of this high end GORE TEX makes the Eider Spencer jacket bombproof. You can hike all day, rip trees, and not have to worry about getting hot, snagging your jacket, or looking weak sauce. This jacket has you covered.
Nice details like the magnet closure over chin, adjustable wire brim in hood, and zip out powder skirt add to the feature set.
The longer cut is awesome for powder days, and also just makes the jacket a sharp looking piece. Pair it with the Spencer Bib pant from Eider and YOU ARE SET
This is the perfect length for a down skirt. Feminine and short enough to be sexy....but long enough to pass the catholic school test! (Fingers down by sides.....skirt is still longer)
Looks great on every body shape and size. It is my go to apre ski, apre yoga, apre whatever piece! I get so many compliments on it!
They are actually lightly insulated. They're also 20k breathable so I'd be surprised if you got hot- even hiking around. Venting aside....they are a super breathable 4way stretch with light insulation. I have skied in these for 2 years in a variety of places and I actually add a fleece baselayer for super freezing days (Jackson Hole, Breckenfridge) I never get hot even in exhausting powder days. The stretch is AWESOME! Feels like wearing yoga pants.
Super stretchy, looks like a canvas or twill pant but is completely waterproof, breathable, and WARM!
This is a popular Eider ski pant for good reason. The fit of these pants is awesome. They're meant to fit a bit higher, to lay the soft brushed fleece against the small of your back. The adjustable waist makes it so that you will not get snow down your back. But if somehow you DO, the CORMAX fabric there wicks away excess moisture quickly. The higher back also is great on powder days and keeping your back warmer on the chairlift.
The best part is that they don't look like high-waisted ski pants when they're on! The low slung, free ski look is deceiving to how much snow protection you get! The Defender Weave fabric looks almost like street wear (really unique weave) but it is actually completely waterproof and breathable and it STRETCHES!
The pant has a very flattering cut- with great features like the zipped covered pockets on the thigh, hand warmer pockets, stretch gators, etc.
In the Red Square pant you’re ready to head straight from the slopes to the pub—in a cute pair of pants!
This is a super versatile jacket with an awesome fabric. It feels like a twill/denim but is actually 100% waterproof, breathable, and seam sealed with 2 way stretch. Inside you have a removable powder skirt, cell phone pocket, goggle/glove mesh pocket....everything you've come to expect from a ski jacket.
Since it has waterproof metallic zippers and leather pullers you get a lifestyle look that isn't out of place in the office or at the bar.
Awesome jacket with great versatility!
The blow alpha jacket utilizes the unique, new Polartec Alpha insulation....the only insulation that actually BREATHS. This is the perfect insulator for skinning, XC skiing, Snowshoeing, hiking....really anytime you need some warmth but Demand breathability. Polartec alpha is a knit insulation so it retains warmth when wet and doesn't have any quills to poke through the fabric like traditional down. It's also the most compressible insulation.
Eider uses Pertex nylon so the jacket is wind proof by construction as well.
This is the ultimate insulator for an active person sick of putting on and taking off their layers all day
This insulated Gore tex jacket has a super sporty look, with serious technical features to back it up.
The fabric feels incredibly buttery and with the four way stretch and primaloft insulation- it's super light while being warm. You won't overheat though, thanks to the high breathability and internal 'thermal control system' with reflective ceramic fibers. I also love how the fit is defined without being tight.
This is the Porsche of ski jackets
I have had this jacket for about a year now and absolutely love it. On the surface, I like the flattering feminine cut and baffling. Particularly the smaller baffling down the sides and under arms. It isn't over stuffed, so it's flattering to wear out to dinner as well as at the crag, or on the hill.
It has been my go to belay jacket and I've been super impressed with how well it has held up. No feathers are peeking out, which I've noticed has happened with other down jackets I've had, and it stands up well to snags on branches, etc. It's also incredibly warm for how light it is.
Over the summer I packed it into it's own pocket and kept it in my backpack. When I took it out it wasn't super wrinkly and the down regained it's loft right away.
This is an awesome price for such a solid down jacket.
I love the Kensington jacket. It is the perfect blend of street style and ski features. The outside fabric is a buttery brushed twill, that is completely water proof and breathable (10k)
The faux fur hood, metallic zippers, and leather accents all add to the sweet street styling- which makes it an awesome all around winter coat.
The INSIDE is the best part though....650 fill baffled duck down lines the back of the jacket and shoulders. So you have warmth just where you need it, without the over stuffed look (or excess heat) of many down coats.
The powder skirt and hood are both removable, adding to the versatility.
It's super functional, flattering and unique...The gals at Self Magazine agree...http://www.self.com/blogs/flash/2013/02/snowsports-trends-for-next-year.html
These shorts are awesome for their versatility. They are lightweight and quick drying, but have a canvas "ripstop" feel to them. Because of the stretch in the back of the waist band they can adapt to be a mountain bike shell short as well, where the abrasion resistance really comes in handy.
The pockets are also cool because while they can hold as much as a traditional cargo short, they aren't billowy and they lay flat against the leg.
The subtle print makes them more interesting than every other khaki short out there, so they're perfect just around town as well.
These shorts are perfect for hiking or climbing thanks to the lightweight, super breathable material with a lot of stretch. The gusseted stretch inseam makes them a perfect climbing short and the position of the zippered pockets allows you to easily access your stuff with a harness or backpack on. The shorts are a slim/athletic cut so you avoid the baggy, cargo short look while still having plenty of pockets for storage (5 to be exact)
And thanks to it's 45 UPF you get solid sun protection. It's an all around awesome active summer short!
The lightness, stretch and UV protection this pant offers makes it the perfect trekking pant. They are straight legged with a nice athletic cut which makes them stylish instead of frumpy like so many baggy trekking pants. Awesome for climbing or hiking with the gusseted inseam and super stretchy, highly wicking material. Lots of pockets to stash your goods but without the bulky look of cargo pockets. Awesome summer pant!
