Using the tagline “Go Where Others Don’t,” the print ads came out of a survey asking the brand ambassadors the craziest places they have been and a local cuisine or drink that was most memorable. Outdoor Research will honor the coupons if a photo is posted on the brand’s Facebook page to validate the experience.
