  • Outdoor Research Method Cord Pants

    Outdoor Research has always made great clothing, but they've really kicked it into overdrive with their men's pants. We are already huge fans of their Balebreaker pants for, well, just about everything. Now along comes the Method cord, and the only problem is we can't wear both at once. The Method Cord is a collaboration […]

  • Outdoor Research Interstellar Jacket

    Some days are just great gear days, and the day we put on the Interstellar jacket from Outdoor Research was one of those days. The Interstellar looks on the outside like just another hard shell, and yeah it's that but also so much more. It's no exaggeration to say the Interstellar can be your only […]

  • Outdoor Research Deviator Hoody

    Outdoor Research makes some phenomenal products, and you know with a name like Deviator it's gonna be good.

The Deviator is a class of clothing that didn't exist until […]

    True story, I remember once I was working for a university marine science program, and they put out an ad for a deck winch but they misspelled winch as wench. Never did see the applicants, but it had to be an interesting lot. Outdoor Research spells it right with their new Sensor Command deck bag. […]

  • Outdoor Research Throttle Shorts

    A good pair of shorts never goes out of style. Outdoor Research makes a lot of great apparel for serious backcountry abuse, and we've loved their Throttle shorts for a couple seasons now. They're hard to find these days but Sierra Trading Post has a few left. The Throttle shorts have an elastic waistband with […]
