Hydro Flask have a bold mission to 'safe the world from Lukewarm.'
It is an ambitious plan, but I feel they are doing their very best to achieve something pretty unusual. Hydro Flask based out of Oregon, in the USA, was founded in back in 2009, when the company launched their first 'all-insulated' bottle into the outdoor market.
From their rather modest beginnings, sales exploded with hydration-loving fans declaring it a huge hit and with over 1 million in sales by the year 2011. Things seemed as though they could only go from strength to strength.
Since then the company have continually strived to bring new and innovative solutions to the customers. Introducing insulated caps, to the lightest weight bottles in the insulated category.
Their overall dedication to their fantastic products and cultural identity remains their number one focus, and now the company offers well over 100 products in four different categories. Those categories include hydration, coffee, beer & wine and an extensive range of food items.
From humble beginnings, the company don’t like to brag about their successes, but it is clear to see they are incredibly proud of their fantastic accomplishments. So much so, they have been recognised for their great products and made Inc 500’s fastest growing company list and Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work list two years in a row. Besides also receiving many other product and industry awards as well.
In 2015, the company expanded in Europe and had a clear vision to go worldwide by the end of 2016. Throughout, one thing remains very clear: Hydro Flask are fully committed to bringing you unexpected refreshment, wherever your adventures decided to take you.
As a result, it is important for anyone who cares for the planet to join them on our mission to save the world from lukewarm.

What did I think of the bottle?
I was lucky enough to obtain a 21oz Standard Mouth bottle which came in striking, Pacific Blue. On first impressions, it looked like a great container, big enough in size, sturdy and also really stylish. I liked it!!
Size & Dimensions
Volume 621 mL
Mouth Diameter 1.91"
Weight 11.3 oz
The bottle was extremely versatile and could comfortably fit into my backpack or be carried around when I was at work or generally out and about. The handy flexi cap at the top of the bottle is a perfect design, as it not only securely keeps everything inside, but the strong loop at the top can easily be attached to other things. Like an attachment on your rucksack or fixed to another object, like a belt for instance.
Hydro Flask has made this bottle with durable 18/8 Pro-Grade Stainless Steel. Which ultimately means the bottle is light and also very durable. Holding it in your hand for the first time gives the impression that this is a quality product.
The product also comes with the option of purchasing extras. The Hydro Flask store has some great items available. That can easily be transferred to this particular bottle and others.
The Tag Along Sling
The Small Flexi Boot
The Standard Sports Mouth Cap
Inside the bottle are the overall technical aspects, to this great product. Each bottle has TEMPSHIELD™ which is a unique double wall vacuum insulation that protects the overall temperature for hours. As a result, cold drinks will stay icy cold, and your hot drinks will stay piping hot.
I found this to be true, and after testing the product both with cold water and hot coffee, I can confidently say that the TEMPSHIELD™ was exceptional. It allowed me to enjoy drinks many hours after initial preparation.
PROPRIETARY POWDER COAT
Each bottle has a wonderfully comfortable feel, and the durability is apparent. Hydro Flask coat each bottle with a proprietary powder coat. Here, technology is at its best, and this means that the bottle is an easy-grip, sweat-free, and extra-durable bottle that can be used anywhere.
BPA-FREE and Phthalate-Free
For me, another significant advantage to this bottle and a great appeal was that it is BPA-FREE. This means that the product and its content has ultimate purity. Therefore, the contents of the container can always remain fresh, pure and in turn, you can stay refreshed and worry-free.
Hydro Flask that they 'stand behind our products.'

Would I recommend Hydro Flask?
I was delighted to receive a Hydro Flask, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it being by my side during days in the Great Outdoors. It is brilliant, and I cannot stress how good this bottle is.
Of course, at times I'm the worlds worse sceptic, and I'm not always convinced by what the label says or indeed advertising.
Although with that said, I am hugely impressed with the water bottle and can only heap praise on this innovative product and forward-thinking company.
To give a fair representation of this bottle, I did put it through its paces in a variety of ways. Filling it with hot and cold liquid, carrying it in the outdoors, my travels, a camping trip and also using it at work. Overall, it stood up to a lot and was incredibly impressive throughout.
If you are someone, a little like myself. A person who loves the outdoors, always on the go and ideally want something reliable to hand and does exactly what it says it will, then Hydro Flask is worth a look.
Pros and Cons
- Great design - well constructed and very durable.
- Keeps liquids cool and hot for hours.
- Innovative company with great ideas and I'm sure there is more to come.
- Solid range of products with many items to choose from.
- Love the range of colours but would be great to see some flag prints, outdoor prints and more personalised items in the future.
- I would love to see a GIANT Hydro Flask possible with a tap at the bottom.
