A passion for human powered adventure inspired the birth of Outdoor Research, an outdoor gear company based in Seattle, Washington. After 27 years, their passion remains as strong as ever, but their goals have expanded to embrace a greater mission: our customers’ experiences of human powered adventure. Over the years, they've learned it’s not simply about what they think as a company. It’s about listening to their customers and building fresh new ideas into their products.
OR's focus is on creating functional solutions for human powered adventure and how they do it is the fun part! Through our Lab Rat program, any user of OR gear can report back to the company on how OR products worked during their adventures.
