Outdoor Research offers optimal hiking and backpacking apparel. Insulating, breathable, versatile, adaptive and my favorite aspect of OR apparel: its supreme packability.
Take for instance the OR Revel (mens) and Reflexa (womens) jacket.
Comprised of a lightweight durable ripstop nylon and a 2.5 layer 40 denier Pertex, the OR Revel and Reflexa shields your body from the elements and recycles body heat all while having the highest breathability rating possible. The Revel/Reflexa's fabric mirrors motion, allowing easy maneuvering without any tug, resistance or restriction. How is it adaptive you say? The coat has a full hip-to-bicep vent that allows fantastic ventilation even with a backpack on, and see that roomy hood? It packs into the collar entirely for when a hood is unnecessary.
One of my favorite facets of this Outdoor Research jacket is that when it needs to be packed away, the left hand pocket doubles as an integrated stuff sack!
The Outdoor Research Revel and Reflexa jacket is the perfect piece for hiking or scrambling with less than agreeable temperatures or when the possibility of precipitation is present.
Stop by the twin silos on Route 2 in Waterbury or call in to order at 1-855-244-GEAR.
See you at CC!
