Hemispheres Jacket

The Hemispheres Jacket is new to Outdoor Research's lineup of bomber winter gear, and it's ready to rip—frontcountry or back. It features a Gore-Tex membrane with fully sealed seams, delivering a dry ride from first chair to last, from skin track to powdery descent, all winter long. And, due to the breathable nature of the membrane, you won't find yourself overheating when you're scouting out the goods. Side vents do run from hem to pit, though, so there's plenty of ventilation if you really need to dump excess heat. Should the forecast call for stormy weather instead, you'll be more than prepared to face an onslaught of flying snow, with an adjustable storm hood, drawcord hem, and hook-and-loop cuffs to keep the cold out.

Where the Hemispheres Jacket really stands out from the crowd of other hardshells, however, is the incorporation of Gore-Tex stretch panels at the hood and beneath the arms. This fabric works just like regular Gore-Tex, providing breathable, waterproof protection, but it does so with unparalleled stretch—leaving you free to focus on the fresh tracks ahead.

  • Technical hardshell jacket for exploring the resort or backcountry
  • Gore-Tex ensures waterproof, breathable performance in all weather
  • Movement-mirroring stretch leaves you free to rip around
  • Underarm zips let you vent out warm air during a traverse or skin
  • Adjustable hem, hood, and cuffs keep the cold snow out
  • Wide-brimmed halo hood covers helmet for superb storm protection
  • High pocket placement provides access with harness equipped

Great touring and resort jacket.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

I have used this jacket backcountry and resort skiing and I love it. The fabric is sturdy, waterproof and breathable (Gore-tex...duh). I love the zippers that come up from the hips so that you can keep your coat on for the uphill but easily regulate your temperature. There are snaps at the bottom of the zippers too, so that when you unzip the hip vents, the fabric doesn't flap all over the place. The hood is nice and big for a helmet or layers. And the collar is nice and tall for windy days and the downhill. I also just love the look of the jacket. It's a good looking jacket.

The Hemispheres jacket is a tough, yet comfortable jacket for all conditions. I run pretty warm when I'm walking uphill, so don't tend to wear a hardshell on the ascent.......unless it's wet, windy or otherwise nasty. The nice thing about this jacket is that the softer main Goretex fabric combined with the stretchy Goretex panels make it more comfortable than other hardshells of similar waterproof-ness. There are good, functional pockets, including an external chest pocket that fits a phone, GPS or other tools, and internal mesh pockets for drying gloves or quick storage of skins. The hood is large enough to fit over a climbing helmet and most ski helmets. Overall, this is a great jacket for when you need bomber protection.
