how we got started
Our story began in Salt Lake City, UT, where Nick Bierwolf and Daniel Goldfinger met as neighbors. They faced a common dilemma living blocks away from the University of Utah, there weren't enough trees to hang a hammock.
Knowing them, you wouldn't be surprised to find out they spent the next few years looking for a solution.
In August 2016, Nick and Daniel were camping in Goblin Valley, UT only to face the same problem: nowhere to hang their hammocks.
That's when they started thinking how many other people had to deal with the same thing. It's difficult to hang your hammock without a tree...
Nick and Daniel embarked on an all-out effort, which lead to the creation of LIT Outdoors as a company. It also led to the development of the first freestanding tent-hammock outdoor adventure system we call the "Tammock."
Absolutely no trees are required, and users of all ages can now enjoy freedom to explore the world in hammocks.
LIT Outdoors is where the Tammock was born.
