Outdoor Research has looked to a number of outdoor sports including alpinism, backcountry skiing, hiking, backpacking, climbing, trail running and paddling to create their brand and products. With this many activities just at the core of Outdoor Research's inspiration, it is easy to see that the brand is able to make clothing and gear for a plethora of sports. Someone once used the word plethora while they were talking to me. I didn't know what it meant so I looked it up later on. Now that I know what it means, I want to use it all the time. Plethora.
The people at Outdoor Research have a passion for adventure and have fueled that passion and translated it to their products for 27 years. The company makes Outdoor Research gaiters, Outdoor Research hats and everything in between. And by the way, Outdoor Research gloves, such as the Outdoor Research PL 150 gloves, are super warm and provide excellent protection against the harsh elements. They even won the Malden Apex Award 2005. Speaking of harsh elements, OR makes sweet sun hats. Grab a Outdoor Research Sombrero to keep sunburns at bay. Use sunscreen, too though. I'm really starting to sound like my mom.
In addition to clothing and footwear, you can find Outdoor Research gear including stuff sacks, dry bags, and bivy sacks. I bet you don't make as much cool gear as Outdoor Research does. I'm sorry, that was mean. I shouldn't tease you like that.
Outdoor Research is on top of the game when it comes to fabric technology. For instance, Cordura fabric is used on a variety of products including Outdoor Research Crocodiles Gaiters. Cordura will not tear or scuff and is suited for high-performance. In addition to Cordura, Outdoor Research uses PrimaLoft One insulation. This isn't your ordinary insulation. PrimaLoft is made of super-fine fibers that are combined to create a soft, water-resistant and lightweight insulation core. Because Outdoor Research wants to make sure you are warm and protected, they have used this, and many other, technologies to create only the best quality gear.
I'm glad I could educate you about Outdoor Research clothing and gear. I feel like my life is now complete. I will sleep soundly tonight.
