In 1985, brothers Don and Ian Scott and sister Kathy started GSI Outdoors. They started the company in San Diego and then moved to Spokane, Washington in 1995, where they have been ever since. In 2001, GSI Outdoors started distributing outdoor related gifts under the name of Outside Inside. What began as a small distribution company selling blue enamel tableware has expanded into the design, manufacturing, sales and marketing of an innovative array of outdoor cookware and a whole range of eating and drinking products that are technical, innovative and fun. GSI Outdoors is known for their enamel cookware first and foremost and then the other products follow suit. GSI Outdoors is in the business of making cookware and dining products that adapt the comforts of home to active outdoor lifestyles at the campsite, base camp and anywhere in between. GSI Outdoors has even started to distribute products worldwide.
