The year is 1973. Billie Jean King defeats Bobby Riggs in a televised tennis match. Secretariat wins the Kentucky Derby. Outdoor Products is founded by the Altshule family. This company was built with passion for the great outdoors. It all started with one bag which we are bringing back in this very special collection, ’73 Originals.

The original construction, including the liner and materials (Cordura fabric, YKK zippers), compliments our new re-design. Improved quality, modern features, and fresh colors helps refresh this moment in time. 46 years of standing by their philosophy of quality, value, and customer feedback.

The family first opened a four-story department store in Los Angeles that displayed more camping tents and gear than any other retailer in the U.S. It quickly surpassed the expectations of outdoor enthusiasts that stopped by to stock up for their life adventures.  Providing value, product assortment and listening to customer feedback was the key to success then.

The company now offers 45-plus years of knowledge and experience in the outdoor and sporting goods industries, in-house product and packaging design, and a global sourcing team that will find the best materials and follow the production cycle to make sure quality and delivery deadlines are met, all while elevating the customer experience.

They have grown their business into a successful international manufacturer and distributor of outdoor gear and accessories.

While Outdoor Products outgrew The Famous Department Store, the values instilled from the days when it first started off are stronger than ever.

We have and continue to always: Pack for Life.


"The collection salutes the simple silhouettes from their early catalogs, but weaves in modern updates for a fresh feel – perfect for college or school or folks keen on rocking heritage vibes."
