Hydro Flask 18 oz Wide Mouth Steel Water Bottle – Gear Review

If you are looking for an awesome insulated bottle, then this is the one to get. I first heard of Hydro Flask when a rep showed up at the climbing gym I work for while in Salt Lake City for the Outdoor Retailer trade show. I’ve since seen Hydro Flask in so many outdoor enthusiasts hands that it just made sense to get one.

Hydro Flask has really hit the nail on the head here. In the time i’ve had my bottle so far it has yet to disappoint me. Last week I spent 5 hours on a 500 foot wall climbing, and took my 18 oz bottle full of hot chocolate. It was so nice to get down off the wall and get warm again with HOT chocolate in my bottle. I’ve been so impressed with how well these bottles keep ice and keep drinks hot.

I did a little experiment one day. I filled my 18 oz bottle with the hottest water I could get from my tap (121 degrees), I let it sit over night for 10 hours and in the morning the temperature had dropped a whole 5 degrees. Now here is the deal, in the outdoors it’s going to be different. If the bottle sits in the sun and gets really hot, ice will not keep. Same thing goes with a hot drink sitting in the snow. It’s a metal bottle, it’s awesome, but metal is a conductor, so keep that in mind.

The real big plus and smart thing that Hydro Flask figured out is a cap that holds the cold and hot. I’ve heard a lot about other brands of insulated bottles that lose the cold or hot by a poor cap design. Hydro Flask did awesome with this. The build of the bottle is awesome, and it looks nice. I love to carry my Hydro Flask with everywhere I go.

Buy this awesome bottle from Backcountry.com for $21.59
