Love the stretch


So I always have a challenge with sizing. I am tall (6'2") but thin (180lbs). I am one of those in between size types. Luckily I prefer things to be a little loose so going with the large works out as long as I am using it in the winter and have insulation on underneath. A medium would be a more alpine fit, but then the sleeves would be on the short side and the jacket too tight with insulation on underneath. But the stretch is nice when extending the arms and the breath-ability is on par with most breathable jackets...don't push it too hard and sweat.



Incredible multi purpose bomb proof shell.


I cannot say enough good things about this jacket. Brought it backpacking on a rainy Alaskan weekend and it kept me dry throughout and I've worn it down every run I've skied this year and it's stretched with me while keeping me warm and dry. It is narrow enough to stay out of the way of a pack and long enough to keep the snow from blowing up around my stomach. Eliminating the powder skirt was an excellent move. I am 5'11 180 and got the medium which gives me enough space for an ascendant and a thinner fleece layered underneath for the extra cold days. Worth every penny. I love this thing



Great jacket


I love the fit and flexibility of this jacket!

Greatest Backcountry Hardshell


This jacket is amazing. Was finally able to take it out with the traverse pant and had the most comfortable day in the backcountry in it. Did a 7 mile round trip in it and was never uncomfortable. The stretch panel in the back was great and made wearing a pack that much better, This along with the traverse pant has made for the best longer day in the backcountry yet!

Great blend of function and style


Great jacket that ticks all the boxes! Good looking, light, durable and maneuverable.

Most excellent shell


This is a really solid shell. I replaced my old Maximus jacket with this one and I could not be happier. I am 5'11" and 175lbs, and the medium Maximus fit well but was snug. The medium on the hemispheres jackets has just enough more room, and it moves and breathes very well. Highly recommended.



He love's this jacket!


I gave this jacket to my son an he loves it! Its a great outer shell that he uses when he goes backcountry and alpine skiing in Colorado! He loves the weight and ventilation that this jacket offers and the color that I got him. He just keeps thanking me for such a great Christmas gift. He highly recommends this jacket.

Anchorage, AK


Great fit and amazing features.


The new OR Hemisphere Jacket is top notch. I was skeptical given their fits from previous years but they hit it out the park with this one. A more "freeride" fit which I need does the job super well. It's still a tailored fit but not super tight. Great shell that is super lightweight and easy to layer with if needed. Only thing I would add would be a sleeve pocket for your lift pass. I'm all OR from here on out!



Great product


The jacket is great. Can't wait to get it out in some bad weather. If you are looking for a jacket to keep you dry this is a winner. If you're looking for a jacket to keep you warm look at another model.

Comfortable and functional jacket


This jacket has proven to be comfortable, stylish and functional on the wet winter Coast and on the snow resort. The velcro wrist enclosures are a good length, zippers seem to be durable, and the assortment of pockets is handy for a day on the slopes. The clean finish and styling makes the jacket versatile for use in town and on adventures.

I just purchased this jacket for skiing, I ski only at Sugarloaf in Maine, where it is quite cold in December, January, and February. I am concerned that this jacket will not provide adequate warmth, even with a base layer. What do you recommend that I wear underneath it?


for your location in the country, I would recommend a synthetic insulated jacket like our refuge or ascendant, both would pair nice under the hemispheres for additional warmth
