Outdoor Research

    Outdoor Research® is Designed by Adventure®. We provide Innovation and Inspiration for the Relentless Adventurer. Based in Seattle, Outdoor Research was founded in 1981 after a failed piece of gear on an Alaskan climbing expedition inspired ideas for a better design.We develop innovative, functional, bomb-proof products that are beautiful in their simplicity, and our gear is backed by our Infinite Guarantee®. We listen to, value and empower each other and our fellow adventurers, inviting input from our customers, Athlete Ambassadors and the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations Test Team. We answer to our customers, not Wall Street. We’re growing, as a company and as individuals. And we’re having fun along the way.

    Looks like you haven't added any adventures yet! Adventures are detailed guides about specific hike, camping spot, or any number of other activities. To insure a standard of quality and accuracy, our editors review each adventure before it becomes available in the main adventure search.
