  • Built-in mesh liner briefs offer cool, breathable support
  • SwiftFit™ construction provides storage options—2 drop-in pockets and a secure zip pocket—that don't restrict movement or weigh you down
  • Wide waistband ensures all-day comfort; a drawcord lets you dial in the fit
  • Sewn with flat seams for nonchafing comfort
  • Reflective hits help you stay visible in low-light situations

Sizing Notes

Measurements are stated in inches unless otherwise indicated.

SHORT: Some pants are available in short sizes, which generally means an inseam that is 2.5 inches shorter than regular sizes.

TALL: Some pants, shirts, jackets and parkas are available in tall sizes, which generally means an inseam that is 3 inches longer and a rise that is 1 inch longer, a shirt or jacket body that is 2 inches longer, a parka body that is 2.5 inches longer and sleeves that are 2.5 inches longer than regular sizes.

Capri or cropped pants have an intentionally shorter inseam—reference the technical specs instead of this chart.
