Outdoors for Life was founded by a lineman for linemen.

Outdoors for Life started making outrigger pads because of the trouble we experienced with other styles of pads. We believe our outrigger pads are superior to any other in the market.

We design and manufacture all our products while using our years of linework to make the best products for our fellow lineman. No other manufacturer has the in-field experience that we bring to our products.

Outdoors For Life is the leading innovator and manufacturer of outrigger pads for the construction industry.

OFL was also the first to:

  • Provide the anti-slip surface to every outrigger pad
  • Provide wire rope handles (now in stainless steel with stainless steel fasteners)
  • Make safety yellow the standard color for all pads

Our History

Outdoors for Life was founded in 2000 by Jeremy Adcock, an experienced electrical utility lineman with a mechanical engineering background. It was always Jeremy’s goal to manufacturer the safest possible products. That is what you will find in every product Outdoors for Life manufacturers.

With over 25 years in the utility business, ranging from engineering to line work and corporate safety, Jeremy’s knowledge is applied to Outdoors for Life’s products. While most companies manufacture products without any idea of how their products will be used, you can be assured that from design to finish, our products are created with only two things on our mind — safety and practicality. It’s with great pride we call these “Products Made for the Rough Environment.

Outdoors for Life is a family owned and operated business. All products are manufactured on-site in Michigan to ensure you receive the high quality and quick order turn around. 

Buying from Outdoors for Life is much more than just ordering a product. It’s purchasing a piece of your safety program.
