WINNER - Win £500 Worth of Outdoor Research Winter Kit Competition


WINNER: olly

There's a nip in the air, the latest gear has hit the shops and we're excited to be on the brink of winter. To celebrate the change of season we're offering one lucky UKCer the chance to win £500 worth of Outdoor Research gear of YOUR CHOICE.

Keeping things fun as well as functional is what we're all about, because like you – Outdoor Research is inspired by adventure. You'll find our laid back, high performance kit a blend of work-wear inspired casuals, technical design and innovative technologies developed with comfort and durability in mind.

We've got this winter fully dialled with new legwear, base layers, insulation and accessories to compliment our existing line up. Highlights include:

Vigor Collection Fleeces srp £70 - £155

The Vigor Collection is your guaranteed ticket to layering intuitively and effectively for cold weather adventures. Each Vigor piece is powered by ActiveTemp™, the thermo-regulating technology that adjusts to your body temperature to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable during high-exertion activities. This tech works hand-in-hand with Vigor's grid fleece fabric, which wicks sweat and allows total breathability when you're gunning it uphill.

Methow Pants - srp £90

The Methow's hybrid-mapped construction provides breathable, weather-resistant performance in variable temps. A brushed fleece interior is only placed on areas that need the extra warmth, while the rest allows easy airflow so you can work harder without letting sweat build up.

Enigma Collection Base layers srp £32 - £55

Enigma base layers features sustainable materials that wick sweat, dry quickly, weigh next to nothing and inhibit odours. Blended drirelease® merino wool and E.C.O. (Environmentally Correct Origins) yarns provide temperature-regulating warmth. The flat seam construction ensures that fabrics won't bunch, rub, and chafe uncomfortably, and thumb loops keep your sleeves where you want them.

Waterproof Liners - srp £45

Whether wearing them on their own or layering underneath a burlier glove, a pair of the Waterproof Liners will always find a place on your packing list. The first of their kind, the Waterproof Liners are complete with must-have details like touchscreen-compatible fingertips, a pull-on loop, and silicone grip palm and fingers – but feel like a regular liner glove.

Refuge Collection - £135 - £200

The Refuge collection is built with VerticalX™, the new high-loft insulation that delivers resiliency, breathability, and stretch in a jacket that keeps you warm even when wet. VerticalX™ combines a superior warmth-to-weight ratio with breathability and moisture management that's defining a new category of protective temperature control for the active adventurer. Each Refuge piece also features ActiveTemp™, the thermo-regulating technology that adjusts to your body temperature to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable during high-exertion activities. Hooded styles feature a Hood Lock™ which allows you to easily adjust your hood for a customizable fit, with or without your helmet.
