I’m only missing a small component of my item, do I need to send my entire item back?

We oftentimes have extra straps, buckles, and snaps lying around the office. Please reach out to us via one of the channels on our Contact Us page with photos of your gear and a description of what you’re missing, and we’ll check our availability.

I didn’t purchase my item directly from you, is it still covered under your warranty?

Yes! As long as your item is made by Outdoor Research, and has not yet been warrantied through a retailer, it is covered under our Infinite Guarantee.

Can I return a product if it was a gift?

We do not accept gift returns. For items received as a gift, we recommend working with the person who purchased the item for you to make a return or exchange with the original vendor.

What happens to the defective and used items once they are sent back to Outdoor Research?

Outdoor Research, as a part of the outdoor industry community, has been fortunate enough to help others in need. Our donations have been sent to areas struck by disaster and given to local community organizations to help those who may not be able to otherwise get outside in the gear suited for their adventures.
