At Outdoor Research, we think that life gets better the minute we step out the door on a new adventure, no matter how big or small. We come home a little wiser and stronger. We see the world more clearly, and that compels us to treat it better. More than anything, we’re convinced that if we inspire more people to get outside, the world will be a better place.
A passion for human powered adventure inspired the birth of Outdoor Research, an outdoor gear company based in Seattle, Washington. And 27 years later, this passion remains as strong as ever. But our goals have expanded to embrace a greater mission: our customers' experiences of human powered adventure. Over the years, we've learned it's not simply about what we think. It's about listening to our customers and building their ideas into our products.
