Fort Mill, South Carolina. Ocean Outpost, a saltwater fishing lifestyle apparel company, launched earlier this year and has been well received by the marketplace. The company ships from its on-line store at www.oceanoutpost.com through its facilities in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Products include long and short sleeve performance and cotton shirts, hats, and other gear for the saltwater fishing enthusiast. John Flanagan, owner and life-long fisherman, launched the company in January.
“I’ve been fortunate to be able to marry my passion for saltwater fishing with my business experience to fill a void in the saltwater fishing apparel marketplace” says Flanagan. “I was having trouble finding fishing shirts with quality artwork that weren’t being produced by the huge corporate players. At Ocean Outpost, we develop a concept and then work with Mark Ray of Mark Ray Marine Wildlife Art to turn the concept into the artwork used on our shirts”. Flanagan adds “It’s also a great benefit that both of my sons are marine biologists and continually provide input to the business.”
Ocean Outpost products include performance shirts with sun protective, moisture wicking and stain release technologies, cotton shirts, hats, and other saltwater fishing related gear. Shirts are available in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes. Distribution is through the interactive website, www.oceanoutpost.com.
