Hydro Flask Insulated Bottle – Keeps Hots Hot and Colds Cold!

October 4th, 2012 By   

This review comes from Meaghen Rafferty, an adventure junkie residing on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. Meaghen regularly contributes to the success of Tahoe Mountain Sports through many different avenues, and we thank her for being awesome.

After reading the hype printed on the Hydro Flask Bottle, there seemed to be a claim that needed to be put to test. I am a big water drinker. When I’m not consuming coffee, I almost always have a bottle of water around. If there is one thing that drives me crazy it’s reaching for my bottle and finding water that is warm and not refreshing (Yuck!).

Keep your hots HOT and your colds COLD

Hydro Flask’s claim to fame is that their bottle stays cold for 24 hours and hot for up to 12. Their flasks are constructed of double-wall vacuum stainless steel, and they stand by their product so strong that they guarantee them for 100 years, or the rest of your life. Now that’s a lifetime guarantee!

Well, the first time I used my bottle I filled it with ice and water and went to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night, and low and behold, my water was still ice-cold. Not so much a world record but still more than I can say for any other bottle or cup. The real shocker came when I left the bottle in my room and went to work for the day. The next night I reached for the bottle to refill it…there was still ICE in it! More than 24 hours later and not only was my water cold but the ice had not even melted.

The main reason this bottle can stay cold and hot for so long is because it doesn’t transfer temperature through the walls of the bottle. This keeps the bottle from sweating, and even prevents your hand from getting cold. The fact that I can use this bottle with hot or cold beverages and keep them with me all day without noticing much change in temperature amazes me. I can leave it in my hot car and still find it cold hours later, or forget about my coffee on my desk for hours on-end and come back to hot liquid. This is why I have a wall of water bottles at home, yet I consistently reach for my Hydro Flask.

  1. […] HydroFlask Flip Cap Insulated Water Bottle Can’t stand it when your tea or coffee cools to room temp before you’ve polished it off? Store your drinks in a HydroFlask insulated water bottle constructed from double-walled stainless steel and you won’t have that problem. When you fill a HydroFlask bottle with hot liquids, they stay hot. This is ideal on chilly mornings outdoors, but also great for long days at work or road trips when you want to spread out your sips and enjoy your drink longer. Or, use it as a larger reservoir to store hot drinks and refill your smaller mug from! HydroFlasks are perfect for cold drinks too, and have the same effect – if you fill it with cold water, it will stay cold. Fill your bottle with ice water and leave it in a car with the windows up on a hot day. When you return hours later to a hot driver’s seat and steering wheel, you’re HydroFlask will still be full of cold water. Don’t be surprised if the ice cubes are still in tact, either.
