Fit security

Fits. Sits.

As a pants specialist, the topic of fit is of central importance to us. Our goal is to ensure a secure fit, size conformity and harmony across all products. We would like to briefly explain what we mean by the topic of fit security:

First of all, we offer HOT sportswear pants for women in 26 and for men in 22 different sizes, in normal, short and long sizes, so that everyone, regardless of HIS or HER height, can find the right pants. The size of the pants is calculated by the ratio of the waist size to the inner leg length, i.e. the length of the pants leg from the crotch to the hem.

The height is measured from the crown to the sole of the foot. It is best to stand on a wall or on a door frame.

Hip circumference
The hip circumference is measured horizontally around the strongest part of the buttocks.

Stride length
The stride length is the distance from the gap base to the base.

Height
The height is measured from the crown to the sole of the foot. It is best to stand on a wall or on a door frame.

Waistband
It is measured as a horizontal circumference in the waist indentation (about 3 cm above the hip bone).

Stride length
The stride length is the distance from the gap base to the base.
Finding the right size is important. It is at least as important whether the shape also fits.

If a pair of pants is adapted to a short or a long size, for example, the shape must be correct. Patterns cannot simply be enlarged or reduced as desired, because the curves and the proportions change depending on the size ratio. For example, a tall 1.99 m (6’6”) man has a different knee position than a 1.75 m (5’9”) man. For outdoor pants, the knee area must also be pre-shaped so that the pants can meet the functional requirements. In addition to the knee area, e.g. the waistband, the pocket solutions and the processing of the leg ends are elementary. For this reason, cut development and grading for the HOT sportswear pants are carried out on site at the company's headquarters in Ottensoos near Nuremberg.

Well-fitting trousers are not automatically perfectly fitting trousers. Comfort and convenience are central factors. It is not enough that the trousers are closed at the waist. The materials that we use at HOT sportswear are predominantly functional, i.e. they allow optimal freedom of movement without being constricting or tense. Regardless of the area of application, whether hiking or shopping, trousers should skilfully conceal any "problem areas", which luckily almost everyone has anyway, on the stomach, hips or thighs.  
A perfectly fitting pair of pants also fits on the back, so it lies flat and does not stick out. At HOT sportswear, especially in the women's area, we work a lot with elastic waistbands, which means that the pants fit snugly, do not slide down when sitting down and do not pinch the stomach. Our women's trousers also mostly have a slim cut and have figure-hugging dividing seams. The forward seam creates a visually slim leg. For pants that are worn for hiking, trekking or general outdoor activities, in addition to the multifunctional qualities, it is particularly important that the pants have important details that offer real added value, e.g. sufficient zip pockets at the front and back for plenty of storage space, enough belt loops or the possibility to zip off if the temperatures change.

We leave nothing to chance when it comes to trousers. Permanent testing of prototypes as well as trousers of the finished production on different fit models ensure our high quality standards.
