Protection

Protection is the foundation in which Outdoor Research has built our products, stories, and people for four decades. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the unwavering support of our frontline workers, and so we honor them and the work they’re doing for the public’s health and safety.

We design and build protective equipment in three categories.

Tactical

Built for mountain environments and tailored to the needs of dedicated military personnel.

Certified personal protection to ensure our frontline medical staff can save lives while safeguarding their own.

Certified Protection

We’ve been building protective equipment since 1981. Now more than ever, we’re responding to the needs of the medical community by manufacturing personal protective equipment for essential workers.

 

Outdoor Research PPE is certified by the most rigorous health and safety standards, including FDA and NIOSH.

N95 Respirator Masks: The highest amount of protection that blocks 95% of very small (0.3 micron) test particles.

ASTM Level 3 Surgical Masks: High barrier filtration ideal for surgical procedures with high amounts of exposure.

ASTM Level 1 Face Masks: Basic bacterial filtration and sub-micron particulate protection.

Made in the USA: Explore our factories

We operate out of two U.S. factories, one that shares our corporate headquarters in Seattle, and another in Los Angeles. Being steps away from our production floors allows us to create, test, improve, and distribute protective equipment with the greatest speed and efficiency. Because this gear is tested in the most extreme environments by our military partners, we’re able to leverage the same materials, techniques, and products for the outdoors. Both our Seattle and L.A. factories produce technical apparel and PPE for adventurers, medical staff, armed forces, and everyone else who needs protection outside of their home.
