Essential Protection

Health and safety are our highest priorities in this new world shaped by current events. Now, the protection that’s kept our essential workers safe these last few months is available for everyone.


Outdoor Research has been building protective equipment since 1981. Now, more than ever, we are drawing on our heritage to protect and prepare with the Outdoor Research Essential Face Mask Kit.
