KOR ONE Receives 2009 Best of Adventure Gear Award

KOR ONE water bottle receives 2009 Best of Adventure Gear award from National Geographic Adventure magazine.

Fountain Valley, CA – KOR Water is proud to announce that its debut product, the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel, has been awarded the 2009 Best of Adventure Gear award from National Geographic Adventure magazine. Selected by Adventure editors and an advisory board of the country's leading retailers, the KOR ONE and fellow 2009 gear winners were honored last week at the magazine's Adventurer of the Year Celebration in Washington DC.

"The KOR is the best new combination of portability, style, and safe hydration we've seen," said Steve Casimiro, West Coast Editor of National Geographic Adventure magazine. "Indeed, out of thousands of products we considered, the KOR ONE was just one of 29 that made the final cut."

The KOR ONE was on display at magazine's gala awards event held last Thursday at the National Geographic Society Headquarters, and will be prominently featured in magazine's December-January issue, on newsstands today.

“We're thrilled,” said Eric Barnes, CEO and founder of KOR Water. “To be recognized by an organization as esteemed as the National Geographic Society is a tremendous honor and to do so at such early stage of our brand's lifespan makes it even a bigger accomplishment for all of us at KOR Water.”

Also as a result of this prestigious outdoor community award, the KOR ONE will soon embark on a national tour and will be on display in the National Geographic Adventure Travel Expos that run through October 2009.
