Asheville, NC â€“ July 14, 2009 â€“ Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), creators of exceptionally comfortable, durable hammocks and many adventure travel accessories, is pleased to continue posting strong sales numbers despite a challenging economic situation. Though ENO coined the phrase â€˜relax', the company has been able to do anything but with an unprecedented busy season and continued focus on new product design.
Paul Pinholster, ENO co-founder, contributes recent success to providing products at competitive prices that are versatile and useful to a mass market. â€œOur hammocks are fitting for so many. More than just for the hardcore outdoor enthusiasts, but also for the kids hanging out in the backyard, the dad that wants to chill out after work, the music festival goers, I mean everyone wants to relax and that is crucial during tough times,â€ notes Pinholster.
ENO is also staying busy designing and creating more accessories to assist in hanging out. A spotlight product set to debut at this summer's Outdoor Retailer, the Launch Pad, is a high-quality polar fleece blanket perfect for festivals, outdoor concerts, picnics, or a day at the beach. The large size (58" x 70") and durable construction let you relax in comfort and style. The bottom is made of a coated 210d Ripstop making it tough and keeping you dry. The top is made of super soft polar fleece. When it comes time to pack up, just fold the blanket into the integrated pocket, zip it shut, grab the padded shoulder strap and continue on your way.
â€œSince the beginning ENO has made a presence at the music festival circuit,â€ says co-founder, Pinholster. â€œFestival goers have helped make a name for ENO and we want to continue to design fun, but practical products for these folks.â€
Brothers, Pete and Paul, do not anticipate a slowing of sales or new product launches anytime soon. â€œWe are in the business and will continue to be in the business of creating products that help people have fun,â€ notes Pete Pinholster. â€œWhether it is a hammock to help them relax and enjoy the outdoors, a rain fly to help them keep dry, or a festival blanket to help them keep comfortable, as long as folks are looking to have fun we will have something for them.â€
