Why We Like The 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.
