What is Minimalist Manufacturing? In a sense it's a bit like the opposite of mass manufacturing. We are a small company that makes only what we need. We manufacture much of our product in our own small shop, and when we need to work with an outside manufacturer, we work with local manufacturers as much as possible. Renegade Outdoor also uses cutting edge Direct Digital Manufacturing using our own in house equipment. which lets us bring new products to market faster, but with a much lower environmental impact compared with traditional manufacturing.
Renegade Outdoor is a company dedicated to doing things differently. We believe in enabling people to enjoy this adventure called life though purposefully designed gear. We know - its not curing cancer or solving the latest geopolitical crises, but we believe that people getting into their lives, living them to their fullest, and becoming the best version of themselves makes a meaningful difference in the world. If our gear, in some small way enables people to enjoy the adventures they love, and focus on the good in life rather than the bad, then we will have done our job. Its your job to find your adventure and live it to the fullest!
It's in the name
Renegade - "An individual who rejects lawful or conventional behavior" From some random dictionary on the internet.
"When trying to decide on a name for this venture, I finally settled on Renegade Outdoor. It really resonated with me. The idea of turning outdoor product development on its head. Its why we started with simple unusual products, and invested heavily in minimalist and Direct Digital Manufacturing methods. " T - Founder, Renegade Outdoor
