JOHNSON OUTDOORS INC. announced the Company’s Necky® Chatham™ Advanced Composite™ Carbon kayak has received prestigious “Gear of the Year” awards from NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ADVENTURE and MEN’S JOURNAL magazines. The awards, which were both announced on November 15th, recognize exciting new products in the outdoor recreation marketplace.
“Innovation is both our mission and our passion at Johnson Outdoors, and we are thrilled and honored to be recognized for what we do best: creating great products for great outdoor adventures,” said Helen Johnson-Leipold, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

This is the fifth-annual year-end “Best of Adventure Gear” awards held in Washington, D.C. by NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ADVENTURE. The magazine’s approach to its best of gear awards differs from others in that it has established an advisory board of 45 of the country’s leading outdoor retailers to assist Adventure editors with the honors. The board’s contribution was twofold: to weigh in on products that in its expert opinion are innovative and to report on what products consumers are particularly excited about in the marketplace.

The MEN’S JOURNAL consults with top pros, designers, and athletes – and polls readers for their wish lists – in selecting its annual gear of the year winners. Recipients of the magazine’s annual “Gear of the Year” honors were announced at the legendary Explorers Club in New York City.
