After more than 10 years living as neighbors to the Appalachian Trail, Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), the leading producer of camping and travel hammocks based in Asheville, NC, announces a continued partnership with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) to extend their support of the 2,180 mile hiking route.

ENO first partnered with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in 2012 with a limited edition combo product comprised of their most popular hammock, the DoubleNest, and the SlapStrap Pro, designed with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s colors and a one-of-a-kind logo. All net proceeds from every combo sale – which retails for $99.95 – is donated towards support of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s efforts to preserve and manage the trail.

“The Appalachian Trail Conservancy enjoys and works to partner with companies, such as ENO, who understand the importance and value in supporting the ATC’s efforts,” stated Amy McCormick, Assistant Director of Development for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. “ENO has become one of our most generous supporters.”

ENO’s General Manager, Lane Nakaji, who thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2001, thinks the relationship with the non-profit is a great way for the company to give back to the environment for which outdoor recreation, such as hammocking, depends on.

“We love what the Appalachian Trail Conservancy stands for and protects,” noted Nakaji. “The trail is iconic and we are proud to help support an organization whose primary focus is to keep it healthy and accessible.”

ENO’s first batch of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Combo hammocks/straps proved an immediate hit, netting over $12,000 for the organization in just three quarters. Nakaji hopes to match that number and exceed it in 2013.

Although this year’s combo is the same style as its predecessor, the current option includes the Atlas Suspension System – the newest and most popular hammock strap. It is available on www.enonation.com or at www.atctrailstore.org.

“With this mutually beneficial partnership, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy hopes to educate, excite and raise awareness among ENO’s fans and customers about the splendor of the Appalachian Trail and the importance of supporting and taking care of this iconic trail for future generations,” said McCormick.
