Kai L.'s Bio

Floridian adventuring in New England. Stuck in a home office most days... but when I'm not I'm out hiking, biking, climbing or kite boarding.

Great for purpose, but not durable
3 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Not sure why this isn't showing in the men's section, but oh well. I own some other gear from Outdoor Research and as a whole the fit is great, as is the material, but the stitching is terrible. I've taken this shirt out hiking a few times (including a trip up Mt Washington and back) and after 2 washes the stitching just continues to fall apart. I've had some similar problems with the Wadi Rum pants that I've had to sew to keep them from continuing to unfurl. The fit on this is great, the style is great (as are the wadi rum pants) but the quality of the build isn't so great. Not sure if I got a bad batch or what but for $65 I kinda expected more than a couple of hikes and 2 washes for stitching to be this bad. I included a picture below of the stitching, kind of a bummer as I really like the shirt.

These pants are great! Super comfortable and are great for hiking or traveling. I wore them in Acadia a couple of weeks ago camping and had some light rain, pants stayed bone dry, ended up buying another pair cause I liked them so much.
