Like the title says, never throw away your orange gear.

It is totally upgradable using Mods. You can get new mods from the Commendation Mod Vendors, an Artifacer, or from the Galactic Trading House.

So, again, NEVER throw away your orange gear (unless you are absolutely sure it is surpassed by new orange gear).

And that's why half of my cargo hold is full of stripped orange ones... *laughs*
And in the end I still stick to ONE outfit... but it's good to have them, right? :P

Yea just depends on the look you want. Some orange gear I passed because I didnt like the look.

Still though while leveling up and unless you really want it for the look you can just sell that black talon gear. The next flash points come with all the mods already that are higher level and you dont have to go hunting for them. You can focus on leveling and can save the upgrading for when you are done leveling.

Does orange gear have any inherent stats without mods? If it's ugly, isn't it garbage?

It has no inherent stats, other than a very minor armour attribute that is dependant on the classification of the gear type (light, medium, heavy)

This is basically the gist of it, yes. It has no significant (I think all Orange armor has about a 7 armor rating as an inherent base) stats of its own. If you really don't like the look of it, then you can likely feel free to ditch it. But if it's a look you think you might ever want to wear, it'd be good to hold on to.

Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder, so it's all up to personal taste as to which looks you may like or dislike. I'm sure some folks will be happy to stick with one look, others may want to collect a wardrobe of choices -- it's just good to know that the option is available with the Orange pieces.

If I don't like the look it gets sold, what's the point of keeping stuff you'll never use.

If it doesn't require a certain class then it might be useful to your companions.
