Out Gear Rec (OGR) started making hammocks in July of 2015, and they officially launched in November of 2015. Based out of Boiling Springs PA, founder Nate Nieri lives just a couple of blocks from the Appalachian Trail.
Nate started OGR because of his passion to see people live actively outside. One day, while using a hammock he had purchased at a big name store, Nate realized they he felt seriously underwhelmed by its quality. He set out to make a high quality hammock that would make his mother proud, and the Singled Out Hammock slowly evolved from there. A big focus of OGR is to get people out hiking, and they organize backpacking trips throughout the year that anybody can attend. Obviously there are always a bunch of Singled Out Hammocks on these trips. What better way is there to live actively outdoors than a backpacking trip!
