Outdoor Research Hemisphere Bib

Best mobility for pants from the Fall/Winter 2018 Gear Guide.

Brand: Outdoor Research

Model: Hemisphere Bib

If a classic ski bib is more your style, the Hemisphere is your best bet. Seven-inch panels of Gore-Tex Fabric with Stretch Technology run the down the side of the ribs and around the back waistband. A third strip of the material is used for the gusseted crotch, and three-layer Gore-Tex backed with C-Knit fills out the rest. One small horizontal pocket and one kangaroo pocket (it fits a beacon) sit on the chest, and the Hemisphere’s two thigh pockets hold snacks, cash, and lip balm. 

Weight: 1 lb. 5 oz. (m’s L); 

Weight: Men’s S-XL, Women’s XS-L
