Outdoor Research Hemispheres Jacket – Waterproof, Windproof and Breathable
Designed for women, the Panorama Point outdoor jacket from Outdoor Research is waterproof, windproof and breathable. With an adjustable, wire-reinforced hood, dual internal pockets and underarm ventilation zips, this jacket will keep you dry and comfortable.
Gore-Tex stretch panels
Whether you’re heading out for a ski tour or a summer hike, the Outdoor Research Hemispheres Jacket is a versatile hardshell that offers incredible weather protection and freedom of movement. With Gore-Tex stretch panels, an adjustable storm hood and TorsoFlo vents, it provides the ultimate protection against the elements.
The Hemispheres Jacket is made with an innovative, two-layer GORE-TEX fabric that features Stretch Technology. This technology allows the fabric to stretch four times as much as other waterproof fabrics, allowing a trimmer fit and more room for insulation layers. The stretchy panels in the back of the shoulders and the underarms provide incredible freedom of movement while maintaining protection from the elements.
The fabric is also lightweight and comfortable next to the skin. It has been tested in a variety of conditions, including straight-up rain and heavy snowstorms.
Designed with a blend of Stretch Technology and waterproof protection, the Outdoor Research Hemispheres Jacket is a strong and versatile choice for backcountry skiers and riders. The three-layer Gore-Tex C-Knit fabric is stretchy enough to let you move freely while providing waterproof protection.
This jacket has a hood that fits over your helmet. There are stretchy panels in the hood and under the shoulders. This allows you to move freely and avoid tearing. There is also a mesh sleeve on the inside of the jacket that will fit your phone and other small gear. You can also store larger items in the jacket’s dual internal pockets. These pockets will keep you close to your gear, keeping it from thawing.
The bibs of the Hemispheres have internal gaiters to keep your pant legs from falling off. They also have a power strap slot on the bibs that you can attach your boot power strap to.
YKK AquaGuard and Vislon zippers
YKK AQUAGUARD and Vislon zippers are not a new thing for the outdoor industry. They are made with a shiny polyurethane finish and feature polyester tape that sews into the zippers. They are durable and water resistant, and can be sewn, bonded, or ultrasonically bonded. You can even find them sewn into PU-coated jackets.
The YKK AQUAGUARD water-repellent zipper is the only jacket zipper on the market to offer a shiny polyurethane finish, allowing it to withstand even the toughest of environments. AQUAGUARD zippers are also sewn with acetal plastic teeth to protect against damage, and are able to be ultrasonically bonded.
The Hemispheres Jacket also makes use of a new premium Gore-Tex fabric called C-Knit. C-Knit is a technological feat of sorts. Combining a waterproof breathable membrane with a new backing, the new fabric offers a quieter, more supple feel next to your skin. It’s also a first-of-its-kind, as the jacket is the first outdoor product to feature Gore-Tex’s patented Stretch Technology.
