Outdoor Research Releases Limited Edition Carryout Duffel Collaboration With Skiing Legend Sean Pettit

Outdoor Research, the Seattle-based maker of market-leading outdoor apparel and gear, this week released a limited-edition version of their best-selling CarryOut Duffel. The OR x EVAC CarryOut Duffel 65L is a collaboration with professional freeride skier Sean Pettit and his creative project, External Vacancy (EVAC), a multidisciplinary initiative focused on expanding the ways to interact with the environment to develop design, artwork and experiences.

“Outdoor Research has been supporting this project with gear to help myself and the other artists work outside in the elements ​​on a quest to build a fort-like space on the top of a high mountain peak in the mountains of British Columbia. Our build was dictated by the environment, and the environment was only rocks. So a dry stack method was used to create our space that was to seamlessly blend with its surroundings,” Pettit said. “Once the project was completed and buried in snow for the winter, we tasked everyone involved in the making of this space with creating something based on their experience. An object, a sound, or visuals that could be translated and shared. I worked with the OR team to create this new duffel with different graphic elements from EVAC.”

“Sean’s style and creativity have been apparent since he emerged on the freeskiing scene in the early 2000s,” said Dan Mayers, Brand Communication Manager at OR. “When he approached us with this concept, we knew that his passion for the outdoors and the desire to evolve his own brand beyond the boundaries of the snow space would spotlight and elevate our classic CarryOut Duffel series and get new eyes on what we’re doing here at OR.”

Constructed from durable PU-coated 420D Ripstop Nylon, the versatile CarryOut Duffel is designed to withstand long travel days and outdoor exploration. The limited-edition OR x EVAC CarryOut Duffel will feature a new graphic design created by Pettit. Boasting a feature-forward design, this duffel offers a range of functionalities tailored to meet many needs. Its highly water and abrasion-resistant fabric ensures gear remains protected. With an exterior convenience pocket for easy access to essentials and a dirty clean pocket for organized storage, staying prepared has never been easier. Equipped with a comfortable carry handle and removable padded shoulder straps (not pictured), carrying a load becomes effortless. Internal zip pockets and compression straps further enhance organization and security, ensuring everything stays in place during the journey.

Available for a limited time, the OR x EVAC CarryOut Duffel 65L can be purchased via the Outdoor Research website.
