Women's Size Chart (Slim Fit XL)

  Slim Fit

Closer fitting tops and jackets with less flap. Typically favoured by disciples of the tarmac, intent on travelling hard and fast. Size up if you need more room. Also describes the Snug-as-a-Bug fit of Heatwave™ Merino bodywear. These tops are intended to hug your body, ensuring the fabric sits against your skin to wick sweat away - keeping you dry and not chilling out.

The chart is a guide only. If you fall in-between sizes, the right size for you will depend on your body shape and how loose or tight you like to wear your clothes. It's no hassle to swap an item, if your first choice is not the best fit.

Men's vs Women's Sizes

If you're struggling to find exactly what you need in the Outskirts™ women's range, check out our men's products for further options. Jackets, tights and baggy tops often fit both men and women equally well. Remember to adjust down a size (women's medium approximates men's small). Selected products are also available in XS (approximately women's small) to provide a more complete range.

▸ Hazard!™
Night travel is a spooky experience. Many Ground Effect garments feature our Hazard!™ reflective logo and piping to help remind traffic that we're on the road too.

▸ More than Kiwi Made
Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in New Zealand. Has been ever since we started back in 1994. Manufacturing locally works for us. We operate a quick-response system - holding minimal stock of any one item, but churning out a few more quick-smart when the pile gets low. The upshot is that we are seldom caught with our shelves empty, so orders get despatched the same day you place them.

▸ Washing
  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish.

Great Jacket

Very happy with my new jacket, thankyou! It's super lightweight, and seems to do the trick keeping the wind out, which is what I wanted. First size I ordered was on the snug side, but it was very easy and quick to have the larger one sent out! Also would like to say I'm impressed with your simple packaging - no single use plastics :) Thanks team!

Spook

I really like the lightweight brightly coloured Spook that gives me a wind breaking warm layer in Queensland's winter. We do get some cold mornings although it wouldn't compare with NZ! I am also impressed with how small the jacket folds, so I can store it after use in my jersey pocket. Great design!

Spook

I bought a spook jacket many years ago and was brilliant. I wore it a lot and have recently replaced the old one; which I got quite attached to.

Great product, bright and lightweight

I am a size 10 and purchased a size 12 and was glad to have a little bit of room to accommodate wearing my work uniform underneath on my daily commute. It folds up to be very compact. I love it
