Scioto Made: Built for the Journey

Founded with a passion for nature, Scioto Made bags and gear are designed for the outdoors lifestyle. Our handmade bags are rugged, durable and functional.  We believe our customers deserve bags that last and meet the essential needs of the outdoors without the unnecessary bells and whistles. 

Made in the USA

Our employees are dedicated to a work ethic built on generations who truly care about the products they make, embodying the values of dedication, precision and perfection. All the gear we manufacture has been made in America, guaranteeing the highest standards of excellence.  

Handmade quality

Every bag is individually made using the most durable, high-quality materials to handle every environment from the rugged outdoors to everyday use.  We pay attention to the details, from start to finish, and ensure a high-quality bag that will last for years to come. 

Functional Simple Design

Our designs are straightforward and simple. There’s no wasted space making it the most efficient bag you’ll ever use. We ensure our bags are practical with organizational features that are usable and have a purpose for the outdoors. 

Life is about the journey, not the destination

Headquartered along the Scioto River in Upper Arlington, Ohio, co-founders Wes and Dana Adams enjoy camping, kayaking, hiking and fishing with their kids and created Scioto Made to design and build gear that held up to their rugged lifestyle. Our brand colors represent our passion for the outdoors and continuous service work to make it a better place. Water (Blue), Earth (Brown), Trees (Green) and Sun (Orange) - it’s simple and essential.  

Preserving nature

Scioto Made at its core is a small business with roots grounded in the outdoors, service and community. The Scioto Made team devotes their free time to helping clean up rivers and outdoor areas throughout Central Ohio.
