Hydro Flask

Non plastic water bottles have become increasingly more and more popular, and each year, a different company seems to lead in popularity. bkr bottles, klean kanteen, nalgenes — all different brands that have been super popular in the past years. And this year, Hydro Flasks are everywhere. Made in Bend, Oregon, I knew I was going to love them (as I love all Oregon products / people / places) and sure enough, love at first sight. These water bottles are by far the best.


They come in every size. Big, small, extra big, extra small, etc…

Why? Well, first, they are not plastic, nor are they glass.  They are made from stainless steal and are BPA free… and also have a vacuum seal so nothing ever leaks. They are also insulated so cold drinks remain SUPER cold for a long time (24 hours) and hot drinks are HOT for up to 12 hours.


Good size.

Easy to carry and not heavy AT ALL (which I found issue with the glass bottles).


Not only is this bottle extremely well-insulated, but it also doesn’t ‘sweat,’ so you’ll never have to deal with condensation on the outside of the bottle or a small puddle underneath it.


The bottles also offer a different selection of mouths and caps — I have the simple wide mouth, but also am going to buy another one with the sports mouth.


Although they are not dishwasher safe (due to the vacuum seal), they are super easy to wash by hand. And do dishwashers make water bottles that much more clean????


I also like the look of these bottles. Clean, solid, and simple.


To buy, you can get them at any outdoor store, on Hydro Flask’s website, or of course, on amazon. I am personally loving my new commitment to drinking more water, in an environmentally friendly way, and with a water bottle that I am excited about!

  1. Why is drinking more water so hard. I can’t seem to kick the coffee addiction and trade it in for something healthier. Maybe buying a water bottle will make me FEEL the commitment.

  2. I have two of them that I use on rotation. I adore these bottles!!! You can put them in your bag and not worry about condensation.
