At Orvis, we live and breathe the outdoors, an appetite for adventure runs in our veins. That’s why for every pound you spend Orvis, we donate 5% of our pre-tax profits to protecting nature and our natural environment, as well as supporting the communities in which we operate, and where our associates live.
In celebration of the Great Outdoors Month, we asked our associates to share their favourite places to visit to seek comfort, relaxation and adventure in the great outdoors. Here’s what they had to say.

From everyone at Orvis, here’s wishing all the dad’s out there a Happy Father’s Day. In this video, Orvis’s Charley Perkins offers a tribute to his grandfather, Leigh Perkins, who still spends 300 days a year on the water and in the field and shows no signs of slowing down.
You’re headed out on a short holiday. That’s great! Now don’t mess up your mini adventure by packing your luggage for a weekend trip with scores of things you don’t need, dragging along overpacked bags, and leaving things behind you wish you’d included.
Cropped trousers, otherwise known as ankle trousers or capris, make a lot of sense when the outside temperature is between hot and cold—as is so often the case during our notoriously brief summers. And capris have long been portrayed on the big screen and in fashion magazines as part of an appealing and chic, relaxed summer look. However, many will agree they’re a tricky wardrobe item to style well in practice.
