Have you ever thought about how many plastic water bottles you use in a month? How about a year? That's a scary thought, right? Invest in a Hydro Flask! They are insulated, reusable water bottles, coffee mugs...both hot and iced, and more. They come in many different sizes and styles for all your hydration needs, as well as a rainbow of color options. I personally have over 7 different ones. They are all unique for their shapes, kind of like us! They also offer accessories too! Such as lids with straws(Reusable), the sport-cap, and a rubber bumper for the bottom. When these first came out, people felt indifferent about them because one drop and it would dent the bottom. Now these bumpers are available and are truly life changing. Go save the world and use one less plastic bottle daily!
I love ice cold water. Hydro Flask is the only water bottle where I can fill it up with ice at night and then still have ice in the morning. If you're fanatical about having the coldest water, Hydro Flask is the way to go.
I picked up five Hydro Flasks to replace our motley collection of decrepit water bottles. I even tossed my beloved Nalgene. Top pick on Wirecutter. I paid around $30 a pop direct from Hydro Flask. Very happy so far, well worth the money.
Specifically we got the 21oz standard mouth in five chipper colors. 21oz is the perfect size - plenty big enough and fits nicely into a cup holder. 18oz is fine for a kid size. Don't get the 24/32 unless you really need something huge. The construction is sturdy and feels solid. The lid is easy to twist, even for the kids. The opening has a pleasing curve that makes for easy drinking. Like most water bottles these guys aren't dishwasher safe. Personally I'm happy to wash once a week using soapy water, or perhaps a bottle brush if I'm feeling ambitious.
