The Outdoor Research athlete and ambassador team had big ideas for the next iteration of our ski collection; they demanded a bomber, weatherproof jacket and bib pair that enhanced their range of motion while protecting them from the harshest elements on earth. Tall order, indeed - but our designers were up for the challenge. Season after season dedicated to development and relentless testing resulted in this: The Hemispheres Jacket and Bib, featuring trusted GORE-Tex® protection infused with unparalleled stretch technology to fulfill all of your powder chasing dreams. Loaded with features, injected with durable materials, and approved (and loved) by the scrupulous OR athlete team, the Hemispheres Collection will revolutionize the way you play in the backcountry.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Great pants

5

The fit is good and the stretchiness is amazing. Easy to stride out uphill and flex deep on the downhill. Recommended.

Great ski pants!

Used these for the first time skiing at Whistler, absolutely loved them. It was pouring rain in the village and we spent an hour standing in line in the rain. These kept the wet out and allowed me to still enjoy the day on the slopes!

I could not possibly say enough good things about these bibs. I bought them in the fall but wanted to wait till I'd really had a chance to test them before writing this review. They have stood up to every possible test. I've worn them while sailing through winter gales in Alaska, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and snowboarding. They've always kept me dry and they are so nice and light and breathable yet rugged and resilient against wear and tear. Southeast Alaska can be very hard on gear and these have passed every test with flying colors, from trudging through deep snow on powder days, to heavy rain, to sleet/hail/ice this is the outer layer you want!

Best ski bibs ever!

These pants are simply awesome. I have the prior pant that these replace and there is no comparison, the Hemisphere is just amazing. They XL fits me well (6' 1" 242#'s), perfect length and room in the box for layers or I can wear a belt if I need to take up any room in the waist. The new GORE-TEX materials allow freedom of movement yet provide all the benefits of the weatherproof/breath ability I expect from GORE-TEX. So far the Reinforced Scuff Guards have not shown the usual wear from my ski edges which is amazing considering I usually shred through in most pants by now. Thanks OR, just what I needed!!

These pants offer great flexibility; work great with both my telemark boots and snowboard boots!

Great product, some odd features

Great pant with great features (side zips, lots of pocket, stretchy gore-tex in the right spots). The full side zip on only the right side is a smart feature for the post coffee bathroom run. Some off features are the loose fitting nature of the upper bib in the torso area. This is nice for venting, but it also allows snow to get in. The partial mesh gaiter can let water in on those wet days, but good for venting. Time will tell how durable these are because they are super thin.

Bomber bibs!!

5

Super light...kinda feels like you're wearing nothing at all...nothing at all...nothing at all... But seriously though, the pockets are huge, there a clip in the right pocket for your ski pass on a more than long enough lanyard to be able to pull it out when needed. There's a great pocket right on your belly button that's kept my phone nice and toasty so it doesn't shut down

Wow! Rock solid bibs!

5

As others have said, an amazing bib that OR has here. Great performance and handles any conditions thrown at it. I've used other bibs and with the new stretch technology in the crotch and back of bib are a game changer. NO MORE BLOWN CROTCHES! Love the bibs but only thing I would recommend would be a rear pocket for us that still like to carry a wallet during apres as well as a zipper at the bottom of the pant cuff. If you have bulky boots, the cuffs can be a little tight fitting over the boots. Love em!

Nice Bibs!

Awesome bibs for so many reasons. The stretch is great, super lightweight, and the beacon pocket is perfectly unobtrusive with a good tether. My only complaint is the fit. I'm 6'2" with long legs and I had to buy the XL in order to get the legs long enough. Downside is that the bibs fit huge around the waist like fishing waders instead of athletic fit riding pants... Dear OR, you would crush it if you offered long/tall sizes like that other dead bird brand up North. Can't tell you how many tall friends I hear complain about not being able to find good technical gore tex touring pants/bibs that are actually long enough. Large waist with 34-36 inseam... yes please! Overall awesome product, would recommend.

Amazingly light and strong!!

I was really surprised at how light these pants were. I tried them out on opening weekend in Revelstoke BC. They performed well above expectation. Very breathable for a bib, enormous pockets and nice stretch in key areas made donning boots and strapping in effortless.

Does the men's Hemisphere bib come in a "short" version? Size XL fits my waist, but the inseam is 4" too long

Tim

Tim, unfortunately the hemispheres do not come in a "short" inseam option
