#OptOutside Highlights From Instagram

From Black Friday through Sunday, we encouraged everyone to avoid shopping, go outside and post their adventure on Instagram with #OptOutside and #OutdoorResearch. For each post with both hashtags, we pledged to donate $10 (up to $5,000) to Paradox Sports, an adaptive outdoor sports nonprofit. Nearly 1,000 people joined us and we’re stoked to announce that we’ll be sending Paradox Sports the full $5,000 check.

We'd like to give a huge thank you to everyone who went out and helped us reach our goal. To celebrate, we sifted through Instagram to bring you this gallery with some of our favorite photos. Enjoy!
