Diamond Brand: Ninety Years and Counting!

Ninety years ago, we made the very first standard-issue backpack for the Boy Scouts, the Yucca Pack. Ever since then, Diamond Brand Gear’s partnership with Scouts has been one of the most enduring and impactful parts of our legacy as a company. 

It was crafting durable, top-quality goods for Scout camps and councils — from bags and gear to our flagship canvas wall tents and packable Scouting tents — that first marked our entry to the world of gear craftsmanship. 

It’s only fitting, then, that we honor this partnership as the title sponsor of this year’s Boy Scouts of America National Outdoor Conference.

Why we’re proud to be 2021 BSA National Outdoor Conference sponsors

As the largest biennial gathering for Boy Scouts of America employees and volunteers, we’re thrilled to collaborate on such a key cornerstone of leadership in Scouting today. (And we were happy to donate commemorative messenger bags made from reclaimed tent materials, too!) Our support for the Scouting community goes far beyond a weekend’s event, though.

Tested by us, trusted by Scouts

From Camp Daniel Boone in North Carolina to the 137,000-acre Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, our tents, made by hand in the Blue Ridge foothills, are favored by Scout camps across the country for a reason. We craft them to last, using only the most durable of fabrics, sealed seams, triple reinforced corners and sturdy grommets. Tested in the harshest of conditions, and with an in-house repair shop to boot, our tents are designed to keep powering scouts’ adventures for generations.
