I have a voucher for Ouitdoor Research, I looked at their website and none of their items jumped out at me so cnaty make up my mind what top spend it on.
Does anyone have any kit they really like and can recommend?

What sort of activities are you into? That might drive the direction you go. I have found that I really like their Centrifuge jacket for cold weather runs and biking.Sep 6, 2012 at 11:00 am #1909675
Mainly Backpacking and hiking.

I have both their Flex-tex (winter) and Ultra Trail gaiters (summer)- I like both
they have several hats and balaclavas that are worth looking at
they make a really light tee shirt, Echo Tee that gets good reviews- only weighs 3.2 oz, they also have a couple of blended (merino and syn) shirts that look goodSep 6, 2012 at 11:52 am #1909688

It's warmer than your typical down sweater. Weighs a little more too, but a very well made jacket and stuffs into a very soft pillow. I think it's 11 oz. for a medium. I bought on in Crested Butte a few years back, asked about repairing a tear that was my fault, and they replaced it with the current version, brand new, and – get this – shipped it to me before I'd even shipped mine back. Single best warranty experience I have ever had (well Clark's gave me two pairs of shoes once). The Infinity Warranty is not to be messed with. Get it for around town if you have a better lighter down jacket. Can't have too many puffies in my mind.
They also have a "Radiant" Hoody that looks a lot like an R1 or something.Sep 6, 2012 at 3:36 pm #1909788
The warranty they offer is indeed very good.
The reason I have the voucher is that I am sending in an item under Warrnaty and as it is out of stock they allowed me to take a voucher instead.Sep 6, 2012 at 5:30 pm #1909827

i have a few of or's products, but the one thing that they make that i think is unique to them is their neoplume pants. they use a heavier weight insulation between the waist and the knees than from the knees down, where you need less insulation. they pack down small and go in the bottom of the pack on most cold weather excursions.
