Why mess with a best seller? Well, to improve it, of course. The Wayward Shirt used to be the easiest way to deflect sun and sweat without looking like you just walked off of the Inca Trail, but we've added even more finely-tuned details to up its performance chops without sacrificing its low-profile style. UPF 50+ fabric provides the best sun protection available, a poly-spandex blend breathes, dries quickly, wicks moisture, and allows movement-mirroring stretch, and travel-inspired details like a zip chest pocket that holds your passport add extra function to a longtime favorite. If the Wayward Shirt wasn't already in your gear closet, the Wayward II will make a case to get in there.
At Outdoor Research, we think that life gets better the minute we step out the door on a new adventure, no matter how big or small. We learn about ourselves, each other, and the environment every time we get out. We come home a little wiser and stronger. We see the world more clearly, and that compels us to treat it better. More than anything, we’re convinced that if we inspire more people to get outside, the world will be a better place.
In 1981, a brilliant scientist and adventurer named Ron Gregg watched his frostbitten partner get airlifted off a glacier on Denali. He'd spent months planning a new route in the purest style, skiing 100 miles from the road to the base of the climb. Barely halfway to the summit, their trip ended with the failure of a simple pair of gaiters. Stubborn to the end, Ron refused a seat on the helicopter and descended alone for two weeks, pondering what had happened. Somewhere along the way, he realized he could both fix the gear problem and devote his life to pursuing his passion for adventure. By the end, he knew one thing for sure: He wasn't going back to his old job.
