December 4, 2018

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--GRAYL, the brand that reinvigorated the water purification category, today introduced GRAYL GEOPRESS, a next generation purifier that quickly cleans even the sketchiest of water for travelers, adventurers, and survivalists. Designed for use on all seven continents, GEOPRESS purifies and filters 24 ounces of water in just eight seconds (5L/min), nearly twice as fast as any other purifier.

Unrivaled in speed, ease-of-use and versatility, GEOPRESS provides complete protection from all waterborne pathogens (virus, bacteria, protozoan cysts) plus chemicals, heavy metals, and even microplastics. Designed for use anywhere on the planet, GEOPRESS requires no setup time, and makes clean, safe drinking water from hotel sinks, sketchy spigots, or jungle rivers. Simply fill, press, drink.

“International travelers rely almost exclusively on single-use bottles for daily hydration – which are expensive, wasteful and almost never recycled. Until now, no travel purifier has rivaled the convenience of buying a single-use bottle at a corner store,” said Travis Merrigan, GRAYL Co-founder and Product Director. “GEOPRESS addresses that need. It requires no setup, it’s easy to use, and provides complete protection against impurities that make travelers sick, including waterborne viruses.”

“GEOPRESS is our pinnacle achievement,” said Scott Rolfson, GRAYL Brand Director. “It provides a user experience that’s second to none, adventure travelers are going to be ecstatic.”

Packed with innovative features, GEOPRESS delivers unrivaled results. Its SimpleVent™ cap allows air to escape while ‘pressing’ and protects against cross-contamination. SoftPress™ pads and TopoGrip™ provide an ergonomic ‘pressing and purification’ experience that is comfortable, and non-slip in any environment.

GEOPRESS retails for $89.95 and is available in four colors: Alpine White, Camo Black, Coyote Amber and Visibility Orange. It is pre-selling on Kickstarter now through January 9 and will be available worldwide by April 2019.
