Every once in awhile you come across a product that looks like it may be the answer you have been looking for. The Hydro Flask is one of those products that fits that bill. I have been using these bottles for almost 2 years now for everyday use and on every trip on my Kayak. In that time I have found that they really do work as advertised and it still amazes me how well they do the job. They are perfect to bring on a kayak especially if you do not carry a cooler on the water. I personally have the 40 and 21 ounce size and I generally carry the 40 oz with with me while I am on the water. My 40 ounce bottle is all black and even leaving it in direct sunlight the contents of it stay ice cold for my entire trip. Hydro Flask bottles are advertised to keep liquids cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. They are offered in sizes ranging from 12 to 64 ounces in standard, narrow, and wide mouth options. Some of the HydroFlask’s features include:
- High quality food grade 18/8 stainless steel, which is highly resistant to absorbing odor, taste, and bacteria.
- Double wall vacum insulation that pevents the bottles from sweating.
- Non toxic food grade powder coating.
- Hot for at least 12 hours.
- Cold for 24 hours and more.
Below is an info graphic on the full list of features.
The Hydro Flask is definitely one of the items that I do not go on the water with knowing that I will have a cold drink at hand even on the hottest days. Head over to the Hydro Flask website and check them out.
