If you're a frequent FM reader, or just a gear nerd in general, you're likely familiar with Outdoor Research. The Seattle-based brand has long been a staple among hardcore outdoorists, making some of the most reliable gear for adventuring in inclement weather. Their newest product however, takes itself a little less seriously.
Introducing the limited-edition Quinn Bucket Hat, a casual bucket hat made of cozy sherpa fleece. The brainchild of OR climbing ambassador, five-time Youth National Climbing team member, World Cup qualifier, and all around teen phenom Quinn Mason, the retro styled bucket is the perfect piece to make a day at the crag feel less competitive, less intense, and more fun.
The clever cap comes complete with a drawcord to keep it secured to your noggin while you’re doing whatever you’re doing, and a stash pocket (on a hat, who thinks this stuff up?!) for cash, a card, or a love note. A bunch of retro color round out the list of notable design elements.
It’s a super fun product that Quinn hopes will bring a smile to your face, like it does to hers (and ours).

I started wearing bucket hats at competitions with my good friend @clobester a little over a year ago. The hats quickly caught on with some of our peers and became a way to keep things light and fun during stressful competition. Then... the wonderful @saranazim at @outdoorresearch created a fuzzy bucket hat. I am so excited that the “Quinn Bucket Hat” is now available for purchase! This hat is a constant reminder to me of how lucky I am to work with such an amazing brand but most importantly it reminds me to always keep things fun! I hope this ultra stylish and fuzzy hat brings a smile to your face the same way it does to mine :) Swipe to see @meruturao and I showing off all of the wonderful colors! 📷: @viviankimx #outdoorresearch #buckethats #fuzzy #climbing #fashion #smile #joy #training #climb #climber #bouldering #workout #climbinginsta #photography #sports #climbingismypassion #climbingpicturesofinstagram #climbingismypassion #strong #womenwhoclimb #strongwomen #SLC #saltlakecity #utah
