The year was 1999. The Pinholster brothers set off in a rickety van full of hammocks, ready to revolutionize the world of hammocking. They set up shop at music festivals and various community gatherings, first in their home state of Florida, then travelling throughout the southeastern United States – the van serving as a storefront by day and sleeping quarters by night. Somewhere along the way, a hammock counter-culture was introduced: taking it wherever your adventures lead you. As avid travelers themselves, the founders of Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) based the first product line around the ideal hammock for their lifestyle: easy to pack and adventure-ready. Over time, ENO took something great – hammocks – and made them even better by designing and patenting the very first knotless hammock suspension system, making it easier than ever to relax in a hammock. We have evolved to offer a range of hammocks and accessories to give people an all-access pass to relax wherever their heart desires. What started off as a grassroots company operating out of a van has grown into ENO as you know us today: a company that’s passionate about outdoor relaxation gear, pushing the envelope with innovative products, supporting organizations that help us protect and preserve the outdoors, and celebrating our community members, near and far. Today, we are based in Asheville, NC – home of the highest peaks of the iconic Blue Ridge Mountains – where we proudly share our hammocks and relaxation gear with members of ENO Nation around the globe.
What Matters to Us
ENO is an outdoor company comprised of outdoor enthusiasts – in other words, we love spending time in nature and we know our fellow ENO Nation members do, too. That’s why we feel it’s important to help protect and preserve our favorite wild places. We are always looking for different ways to serve and support the outdoor community, both locally and globally. From our start-to-finish sustainability practices to our nonprofit partnerships, we don’t just talk the talk – we walk the walk. We also aim to give the members of ENO Nation the freedom to relax wherever they choose. You want to get out there, explore, connect and relax – and we want to help you get there, from backyard to backcountry and everywhere in between.
