Jackets and Vests For Men
In the 1980s and early 1990s, Outdoor Research built a reputation on functional, quality outdoor gear that pushed the limits of innovative possibility. Founder, Ron Gregg led a function-forward approach to creating solutions that allowed people to safely explore the outdoors with the very best protection. Today, Outdoor Research still manufactures, sells, and earns awards for clothing products year after year. This gear stands the test of time.
Outdoor Research operates out of two U.S. factories, one that shares their corporate headquarters in Seattle, and another in Los Angeles. Being steps away from their production floors allows Outdoor Research 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 their military partners, Outdoor Research is able to leverage the same materials, techniques, and products for the outdoors.

Men’s SuperStrand LT Vest
Enjoy the best of both worlds with the SuperStrand LT Vest: Ultralight, packable warmth that gives you the benefit of both down and synthetic insulations so you’ll never have to choose again. Find out why this is a trusted year-round insulator.
This is the lightest, softest, most compressible synthetic down vest delivering four-season warmth. Sharing a name with the new insulative technology VerticalX™ SuperStrand, the SuperStrand LT Vest is just as soft, light, and lofty as 700-800 fill power down. Its ripstop nylon fabric resists abrasions and shields against wind and light precipitation, while a unique discontinuous quilting pattern reduces stitching and creates an uninterrupted flow of warmth. All this performance is packed into an ultralight average of 10 oz. that compresses down to the size of your palm.
The SuperStrand LT Vest truly gives you the very best warmth-to-weight ratio that’s ideal for wearing over base layers, and layering under hard shells, for whatever weather and temperature you have in store. Experience it for yourself.
