In the Summer of 1999 brothers, Phil and Paul Pinholster decided to make hanging out their full time occupation and escape the traditional workplace. Inspired to have a business that would challenge them, yet still allow a laid-back lifestyle - they began a small operation in Florida. Their plan was to travel the East Coast in a minivan, selling Eno hammocks at music festivals and community gatherings along the way. The brothers focused on selling the most comfortable hammocks in the world, creating Eagle Nest Outfitters. The word spread fast, so they set up shop in Asheville, NC to continue to grow the business into what it is today.
From a two man, one van operation - Eno Hammocks grew to become the leading provider of parachute hammocks and outdoor accessories. Built for the highest quality relaxation for adventure travelers and outdoor lovers everywhere. Eno’s mission is to help, inspire, and motivate people to go outdoors and relax with their products.
