This weather is insane. Yesterday it hit 80 degrees in Chicago. The 10-day forecast would be awesome for June… and it’s mid-March. As a result, all I want to do is be outside. But to be honest, even when the weather sucks, I still usually want to be outside. With the kind of gear that companies like Outdoor Research put out, there’s no excuse no matter what the weather. Outdoor Research is based in Seattle, WA, and they’re focused “on creating functional solutions for human powered adventure.” The company was founded in 1981 by a physicist named Ron Gregg. He was unhappy with how his gear performed on one of his outdoor adventures, so he decided to make a better version. They started with handwear, headwear, and gaiters, but after finding success in those areas started developing new product lines.

Do Your Research

What differentiates Outdoor Research from a lot of other companies in the space is that they take a deep dive into very specific niches, or as they say, “We do weird well.” The video on their Our Story page does a great job of explaining how they do this and what they mean by performance. It’s not just about serving markets like alpinism, backcountry skiing / riding, hiking, backpacking, ice climbing, rock climbing, trail running, and paddling. It’s about considering all of the situations that those activities occur in and designing gear that will perform in the situations they’re intended for. If you love that approach, then take a look at Outdoor Research’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Front-end Web Developer and a Product Developer – Apparel, but the best posting is definitely for I’ll do anything to work at Outdoor Research!. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory.
