Brands We Love: Outdoor Research

photo credit: Gideon HadenWe appreciate high quality outdoor gear here at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters. The quality of your outdoor gear can mean the difference between getting a comfortable night’s sleep and tossing and turning all night long. It can mean the difference between getting soaked to the bone and staying bone dry. Your gear can determine whether or not you enjoy your time spent outdoors.

While a lot of brands focus more on aesthetics than performance these days, Outdoor Research is a reliable, high quality outdoor gear brand that you can rely on season after season. That’s why we love Outdoor Research!

Attention to detail

Outdoor Research founder Ron Gregg was a physicist and adventurer who got tired of outdoor gear that didn’t meet his needs. A mountain summit in 1981 that was brought to a screeching halt by a crumby pair of gaiters motivated Gregg to make high quality outdoor gear. His passion for high performance, high quality outdoor gear lives on today.

One of the greatest things that Outdoor Research brings to the table is a bevy of practical features that can only come from spending hours, days, months, and years outdoors. From fleece lined pockets, to full-zip side ventilation, to built in stuff sack pockets, the features on OR gear are always practical and never just for show.


OR doesn’t rest on their laurels. The company constantly pushes R&D to find new features and bring innovative products to the game. How about 900-fill Goose down mittens? What about battery powered gloves? And who doesn’t need a fully waterproof down jacket? Outdoor Research strives to bring innovative, and useful, options to their customers.

Built to last

It doesn’t matter how practical or innovative your outdoor gear is if it doesn’t hold up. OR jackets, pants, hats, gloves, and apparel are built to handle everything that the outdoors throw your way.

Honestly tested

They don’t just spray down their rain jackets with a water gun. OR athletes put each and every garment and accessory through its paces. Before that glove, hat, or jacket ever reaches you, it’s been through rigorous testing. Up mountains in thunderstorms, on glaciers in blizzards, through mile after mile after mile.

Infinite Guarantee

This is one of the biggest reasons we love Outdoor Research. This company truly stands behind their gear. Each and every OR product comes with their Infinite Guarantee. Here it is:

“We believe so strongly in the quality of the apparel and gear we make that if our product fails to meet your needs at any time, we are happy to replace it. Our products are guaranteed forever, and your total satisfaction with our product is our goal.”
