About Us

Short Version:

We are Wise Owl Outfitters. Years ago we set out to make an awesome high quality hammock at an affordable price. Since our first hammock, we have expanded our product line to include many useful and eye-catching products under the Wise Owl brand. You’ll find us located in the beautiful state of Tennessee. We at Wise Owl take great pride in being a US company, working every day to improve our design, technology and processes. We strive to offer the best and most useful outdoor gear and accessories possible, and we hope that our products inspire you to get out in nature and enjoy our beautiful world.

Our Story

Many years back we, as a couple, spent 4 days backpacking the John Muir trail near Yosemite in the California wilderness with some friends. It was a life changing experience to say the least. We wanted to make sure we had all the necessary gear so we could have the best possible time. When it was all said and done and after spending over $2500 to outfit the two of us, we said to ourselves “Should it really cost this much to be able to do a 4-day backpacking trip?" We realized that many people out there just can’t afford all the camping gear that they need in a lot of cases, so we decided to create a brand focused on high quality products for a reasonable and affordable price.

We believe that spending time in the outdoors enhances people's lives, whether it’s a grueling backpacking trip, a short weekend hike or an extended family camp-out. The gear that you take with you can make all the difference whether or not your trip is enjoyable. Make no mistake; our products are very well made and are of the same quality as some of those much higher priced brands.

Located just outside of Nashville, Tennessee we spend as much time as we can outside with our family and friends. We are always working to offer quality, affordability and to improve in any way possible. We personally test each and every product we offer, and never sell anything that we ourselves wouldn’t use personally. Building a great brand is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.

When you buy from Wise Owl Outfitters you are supporting a family run company with a US team. Our incredible team is made up of many wonderful people from all walks of life located all over the US.

We are available to you any time you want to talk. Whether you have a question about any of our products or if you just want to talk about something camping related or otherwise; we always love to hear from you! We also love feedback and suggestions and do take them to heart. Feel free to reach out via email or social media. Thank you as always for your support!
