Reno, NV —August 10, 2020 — The Swiss Army Knife of insulated bottles, Hibear’s 32 ounce All-Day Adventure Flask, has received the fiercely sought-after 2020 Red Dot Design Award. The origins of the Red Dot Design Award date back to 1955. Its distinction, the Red Dot, is established internationally as one of the most competitive quality marks for good design. Hibear’s versatile, insulated, easy-to-clean, and rugged utility bottle is designed to craft all your favorite beverages – from cold brew to cocktails – yet simple enough to use as an everyday water bottle.
“The strong, innovative design of this insulated flask impresses with versatile accessories for the preparation of various beverages and provides additional indulgence on the go,” says the Red Dot Award Jury.
Founder of Hibear, Mark Tsigounis, is an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, two-time Ironman, ultrarunner, and USN Veteran. Tsigounis says, "I got my first insulated bottle in Africa, but it was while backpacking in South America where I thought, ‘damn this thing would be way cooler if it did more.’ The All-Day Adventure Flask is the culmination of those adventures and my contribution back to the community that gave me so much. Receiving the Red Dot Award was the validation that we had successfully built something freaking awesome.”
Insulated bottles are an essential part of outdoor adventure. Durable and efficient workhorses for keeping hots hot and colds cold, they fall short when it comes to crafting beverages on the road. When bag space is at a premium, gear that does more is valued most. The answer to that call is Hibear’s All-Day Adventure Flask.
Optimized for versatility through smart design, the All-Day Adventure Flask crafts beverages from coffee to cocktails, yet is simple enough to be used as an everyday water bottle. Its vacuum-insulated shell, made from tough kitchen-grade stainless steel, makes the bottle sustainable and nonabsorbent of flavors. The silicone sleeve on the base protects it from small drops and is removable to double as a mug for friends and pets. It opens up to access everything inside, making it easy to clean and eliminates the need for a bottle brush. Inside is a 355 ml 130µ stainless steel filter for infusions, tea, and cold brew. There is a strainer for shaking cocktails and a steel thermal core to keep colds colder without diluting them with ice. The lid even inverts to make pour-over coffee.
Hibear’s partner design studio in Slovenia, Tak Kolektiv, says, “We have spent the last two years and countless design iterations to make the insulated beverage multi-tool, and now our efforts are finally paying off.”
