About the family..
Father Nature Outdoors was founded in October 2011 after a college student realized the value of his basement project. It started when he was out backpacking with his older brother the previous spring and he got fed up with his gear. Backpackers are notorious for cutting the ends of their toothbrushes to spare extra weight, but even the average camper knows that when weight and space can be consolidated, it is worth the effort. Given the young man's frustration and the common desire to lose superflous gear, an idea was hatched..
Christopher DeVore spent the next two weeks creating the first generation of The FNO Integrated Sleeping Bag. The design consolidates the space and weight of the common sleeping pad and sleeping bag system in a way that was not seen by any modern outdoor brands. The design involved a hybrid of both the sleeping bag and pad. The design was unlike any other system and it quickly gained popularity among his friends and peers.
Encouraged by the positive response, Chris realized the value the design could serve to others. He proceeded to build his small team of loyal followers and looked for assistance and advice along the way. Now he runs the small operation here known as Father Nature Outdoors. It is quickly expanding and growing in popularity and FNO is happy to accomodate. Chris is grateful to pass on his love for the outdoors to his satisfied customers.
No one is better prepared than Father Nature. So come join the family here at Father Nature Outdoors. Because Mother Nature can be a pain.
