Pad Outdoor is a Los Angeles based design company specializing in products for outdoor use. Their distinctively modern designs are rooted in the study and artistry of form, balanced by an openness to wit and humor and a close relationship to product manufacturing.
All Pad Outdoor products are made in the U.S.A., a pointed decision made by the company for several reasons. First, in acknowledgement of the tradition of manufacturing in the U.S.A., in particular Southern California, where aerospace and other industries have left a tremendous legacy of high quality precision manufacturing in a multitude of fields. Secondly, by using local manufacturing, Pad Outdoor limits the huge (and often impractical) minimums and lead times that are a consequence of the cost saving use of overseas production. The use of local production allows the experience and expertise of manufacturers to become an asset to the companys design process. And you can see and experience the value of this relationship in every Pad Outdoor product.
