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

Amazingly light and strong!!

5

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.

All-Time Bibs

Awesome Bibs! They fit great, look great and perform. Seem very well built and durable. Not a single complaint! I'm 6' 200 pounds and the large fit great! Plan on using them as my touring pant.

It's like your not wearing bibs

Put these on and the stretch will amaze you. The suspenders dont limit your movements at all. These feel very durable. Only thing I'd like would be a bottom zipper for boot access.

Great Pants

I have yet to put these pants through the wringer, but I can already tell they are awesome. I was hoping for something a little more heavy duty at this price point, but I guess that is the sacrifice you make for breathability. These will be a pair of pants (shells) that you need to be cautious with if you plan on keeping them for a long time.

Tantalizingly Close to Perfect

This is a top-shelf piece of equipment: Meticulous attention to detail, top-quality materials, near-flawless fit-and-finish; fantastic quality. It weighs almost nothing, but still feels like you're armor-plated. Now, let's talk about the fit. I'm difficult to fit, and I never find reviews that talk about fit in a way that helps me. I'm a weightlifter, and therefore large in the thighs and butt, and relatively trim in the midsection. I ordered a size "L" to accommodate the junk in the trunk and the ol' quad-zillas, and the bib fit perfectly. The problems come above the waistline. The photo of the model is simply not representative of how the bib fit on me. In the photo, the top part of the bib hugs the midsection of the model in what looks to be an attractive and form-fitting fashion. However, this just isn't borne out in practice. You can see in the actual photo of the gear that there is no inward taper for the waistline or above. On me, this leads to a LOT of excess fabric at the waistline and above, and it looks JUST SHORT of silly on me. (Indeed, in the video of the piece, it looks like the individual talking about the gear is suffering from a milder form of this problem, and he has a puffy tucked inside!) Sure, it has belt loops (and I'll probably have to use them) but one of the nice things about bibs is that you just shouldn't have to wear a belt. I have had several pairs of bibs and pants that have velcro tabs with elastic material to soak up excess fabric, and that would have been wonderful. But, I'll tell you what REALLY would have been cool: More use of that amazing Gore-Tex with Stretch material to pull together the fabric around the midsection. This would have been the best of all possible worlds: The design would not have been cluttered up with velcro tabs, the fit would have been snug and custom, and there would have been expansion room for stuffing two or three mid layers in there. Let's get some love for waspish waists next season, OR!

Pumped OR is finally offering a bib!

Been wanting a pair of bibs from OR for years. Only complaint is I wish they went a bit higher on your chest.

The perfect balance of features and simplicity

Love the features such as the front chest pocket, beacon clip and stretch panels. The bid style pants are, in my opinion, always the best option fall just about all situations and especially snowboarding and back country trips. No - snow down the backside!

Bibs are the way to go for skiers

I have been using the Hemispheres Jacket and Bib Pant for the past six months. The advantage of wearing a Bib pant when skiing are profound. Getting Snow down your back is a thing of the past! Hiking with your pants falling down is a thing of the past. You don't need a powder skirt, which means you feel much less bulky in the mid section. In addition, when you are using a back pack, you don't need to wear a belt under your back pack's hip strap and that is far more comfortable. I couldn't be happier with the way the Hemispheres Jacket and Pant combination. The bottom line is that I feel 100% comfortable against all range of nasty weather and yet they feel remarkably light weight. The range of motion provided by the stretch fabric actually makes me feel lighter on my feet and the stretch fabric in the crotch gusset is awesome when touring. It is a fantastic feeling to take a large step unrestricted by your pant. The Stretch fabric on the lower-back seems small, but it's noticeably more comfortable when bending over to buckle my boots. The fit and style of the kit are also right on point.

Room to move in with these bibs

4

Great all around bib, and like the jacket, they move well with you. The stretch panels do their job. I'm 6'4" with 32" waist, the size L has long enough legs. The body is a bit big but there are belt loops which I ended up using. Nice that the Kevlar scuff guard on the legs extends all the way around the bottom of the cuff.

Swish swish swish my way into the office with these.

Got these pants with the hemisphere jacket, and while you could buy both separately they are a match made in heaven. The fit feels almost better than the look and I love that they're a bib but do not feel overly restrictive. They're supremely light and I love how durable the material is. I may have accidentally spilled coffee on myself while wearing these and though I don't recommend it, that coffee was whipped away like the first dusting of snow.

Any timeframe to have the hemisphere bibs back in stock?

Brian

Thanks for reaching out Brian, we will not see a restock of the bibs until late Jan of next year.

Q&A_Admi

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
