Categories of Tall Outdoor Clothing:

When braving the outdoor elements, you should wear your clothing in layers that act together to wick moisture away, insulate your core, and protect from wind, snow, and rain. You can add or take away layers as needed for comfort and safety. The ladies outerwear categories below explain what professionals wear in order to perform at their best. And, the great thing is you can find each of these in the tall sizes you need.

  • Tall Women's Base Layers, Jackets, & Shells – Outerwear tops are meant to protect your torso and keep your core warm during outside activities. Many outdoor enthusiasts follow the three-layer system to dress themselves properly. The first layer, or base layer, is meant to wick moisture away from the skin and then dry quickly. The second, core insulation layer is meant to provide extra comfort and warmth. Tall fleece jackets, sweaters, and vests are excellent insulation layers. The top layer, or outer shell, is waterproof and windproof and offers protection from the outdoor elements. Examples of tall size outerwear shells include soft shell and hard shell coats, down jackets, rain jackets, wind jackets, trench coats, parkas, and hoodies. Thick, insulated shells are used when hiking, climbing, and backpacking in cold weather areas as well as when skiing and snowboarding.

  • Tall Women's Hiking Pants & Snow Pants – Like with outerwear tops, it's best to wear tall outdoor bottoms in layers. The base layer can either be long underwear or tights. Both of these wick away moisture from the skin. Over the base layer comes your pants of choice. Tall women's hiking pants when you're going for a good hike or climb. Waterproof, windproof, insulated long inseam snow pants when you're playing in the winter weather. Comfortable, breathable, quick-drying tall ladies pants when you're doing some adventure travel. There is a lot of variety out there, it's a matter of choosing what works best for your specific outdoor activity.

  • Ladies Large Size Hiking Boots & Snow Boots – Proper-fitting footwear is an essential part of your outerwear wardrobe because most of the hard activity is done with the feet. If you have big feet, large size ladies hiking boots and women's snow boots will provide you with the best comfort and protection from the rough terrain and elements. When hiking, backpacking, or trekking on smoother ground, lighter-weight hiking shoes and trail boots offer plenty of support.
