Outdoor Research (OR) has been creating top quality mountaineering, ski, climbing, outdoor accessories, and casual outdoor wear since 1980. A mountain mishap, worsened by poorly designed gear, propelled Ron Gregg, OR's founder, to design better gear for rugged mountain use. Fast forward 30 years, and OR's gear has only gotten better. Built with the enthusiast in mind, every aspect of every piece of OR's gear and equipment has been engineered with comfort and toughness. The outcome is high-end gear, without the fluff. Outdoor Research's gaiters, gloves, apparel, and casual clothing is constructed to withstand the elements. Clean lines and crisp colors pass the test of mountain fashionistas.
OR's rain pants, rain jackets, hats, rain hats, sun hats and their well known and award winning Sombrero Hat will keep you comfortable in rainforest downpours or on sun blinding days on mountain glaciers.
