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. ENO has 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 them today: a company that’s passionate about outdoor relaxation gear, pushing the envelope with innovative products, supporting organizations that help them protect and preserve the outdoors, and celebrating their community members, near and far. Today, ENO is based in Asheville, NC – home of the highest peaks of the iconic Blue Ridge Mountains – where they proudly share their hammocks and relaxation gear with members of ENO Nation around the globe.
