Outdoor Research, based in Seattle, was founded by one of the Nordstrom family. Outdoor Research hats, gaiters and gloves are well respected, as are their no-nonsense jackets and gear. In Canada, Outdoor Research is a bit difficult to find, but you can find it here at VPO.ca and in some of our Shops. We think Outdoor Research gear focus on practical and functional designs are an important addition to the lineup. Do you agree that the Swedish Founders qualify Outdoor Research could be designated "Viking Tested"?
