Kupilka outdoor products is pleased to announce the latest addition to its range of eco-friendly cups, bowls, cutlery and knives. The Kupilka 37 is a robust yet lightweight, 2-in-1 cup geared toward the minimalist outdoor enthusiast and other friends of nature.

Kupilka continues to gain notoriety among hikers and backpackers for products that are lightweight, environmentally friendly and extremely versatile. The 2-in-1 K37 serves as both cup and bowl, offering even more versatility for minimalists looking to shave ounces off pack weight and save space. The K37 features an ergonomic grip, ultra smooth surface and one-of-a-kind, pleasing aesthetic. The new cup is available in four colors – original brown, conifer, cranberry and kelo black.

Debuting for the first time at the 2017 OutDoor Show in Friedrichshafen, Germany this month, the Finnish brand received acclaim for the new design by the Scandinavian Outdoor Group, a membership based non-profit organization serving brands and retailers in the outdoor markets. The K37 received the prestigious Scandinavian Outdoor Hardware Accessories Award from an international panel of seven outdoor journalists, bloggers and retailers.

Kupilka products are made from Kareline®, the brand’s own biomaterial consisting of 50-percent wood-based fibers from certified Finnish forests and 50-percent thermoplastic. This unique composition combines the heat endurance and durability of wood with the easy care, low maintenance and lightweight properties of polypropylene. The end result is a line of products that are dishwasher safe, heat and cold resistant, and will not absorb odors or liquids. Each product is 100-percent recyclable, BPA free, and made in Finland using EKOenergy renewable energy and recycled packaging.

Sport Hansa, importer of authentic European outdoor brands and product lines, is the exclusive distributor for Kupilka in the U.S. The K37 will be available at specialty outdoor, home and online retailers in the U.S., Fall 2017. Please contact Matt Huff for sales or retailer inquiries or visit Sport Hansa and Kupilka online for more information.
