Our Story:

We live adventurous lives and love being outdoors. The Outsiders team is made up of two outgoing families: the Rans and the Stewarts. The company began its journey as the USA distributor for Otentik Sunshades, a beach tent designed and made in Israel. In addition to being incredibly useful in protecting us from the sun on all our adventures, we valued the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability and their community. Whether it’s in the products we carry or how we go about our day-to-day business, these values continue to be a driving factor.

We are excited to introduce our loyal customers to other incredible brands, and hope to see you around the shop, at the beach or on the water!
