Simple Hydration: An Innovative Water Bottle for Runners
Brian Hock designed and developed the Simple Hydration Water Bottle in 2011. He successfully raised over $21,000 on Kickstarter.com and launched the product. This was the largest crowd-funded product in the Cincinnati market at that time. The Simple Hydration Bottle received immediate praise from the Los Angeles Time’s Roy Wallack saying “It Works.” and Lauren Johnston at the New York Daily News saying “Simply Fantastic.” The video used on Kickstarter also won a Telly Award in 2012.
Then Brian was featured in the October 2015 issue of Inventors Digest. The article title is “The Right Hook: Brian Hock Keeps Hydration Simple” details how Brian came up with the idea.
“Is it too early in the year to start calling something product of the year? I don’t think so.” – Gary Dagg, TrailRun Magazine
The bottle is now distributed in many countries around the world including France, Netherlands, Israel, Japan, Singapore, Philippines and Chile among others.
