I love water. Nothing hydrates you better, and it’s great for the skin, the mind and our health. I can always be found with a water bottle in hand or handbag (the recyclable kind only!). However, now I’ve tried Hydro Flasks I simply can’t go back to other types of bottle, These flasks are in my humble opinion simply the best!
Hydro Flasks offer you hours of cool refreshment in the funkiest coloured, coolest designed, most hardwearing containers I have found yet. Ok, let me level with you – personally I bought my first Hydro Flask because I need a huge water bottle and it was the most gorgeous shade of coral pink! So looks were what attracted my eye, but the company can certainly live up to the claim in their blurb that it’s the TEMPERATURE, TASTE AND TRANSPORT that will have you throwing your water bottle away to go Hydro!
Let’s look at things a little closer, and I’ll explain the benefits of this Flask system. I’m also going to add in a fourth advantage to follow the three T’s!
- TEMPERATURE: The TempShield™ double-wall vacuum insulation eliminates condensation and keeps your beverage cold (or hot!) for hours on end.
- TASTE: The Flasks interior is made from durable 18/8 pro-grade stainless steel, that won’t retain or transfer flavour.
- TRANSPORT: The signature Hydro Flask powder coating is easy to grip, and will leave your hands sweat-free – so you can take your Hydro anywhere.
- LIFETIME WARRANTY: These flasks are so incredibly hard wearing it comes with a lifetime warranty – a great investment that will last you for years.
I’m also a huge fan of sustainability so the Hydro Flasks rally cry of #refillforgood really appeals to me! This campaign aims to end single use plastic and help save the planet – did you know that it’s estimated by 2050 there will be more pieces of plastic than fish in the sea?!
If you switch today to any of these Hydro Flasks you’ll prevent 217 plastic water bottles hitting landfill in a year! So let me recommend the best hydro flask in each category (and I’m including their wonderful cool bags at the end as well!).
No products found.

More Hydro Flask Favourites
I love all of Hydro Flask’s products – as well as being so well made, with top quality materials, their returns policy is second to none. For lunches for work my hubby already uses the Hydro Flask Food Holder, which he carries it to work in his Insulated Picnic Tote from the same company.
When they started making backpacks I just had to get the walkers hydration backpack (shown below). I have my eye on the Hydro Flask Ice Cooler Tote Bag next…

Hydro Flask FAQs!
What is a Hydro Flask exactly?
Hydro Flask lead the way in making Vacuum-insulated drinkware to keep your drinks icy cold for up to 24 hours and piping hot for up to 12 hours (6 for coffee products). Saving us from lukewarm drinks since 2009!
Hydro Flask’s bold and bright range of products (and interchangeable accessories) are perfect for commuting, camping, climbing – or whatever physical activity floats your boat.
How do I clean a Hydro Flask ?
Hydro flasks are built to last, but to get the best out of them cleaning them correctly is very important. You can buy a straw and lid cleaner and a bottle cleaner – I would definitely spend the money to be sure your keeping the bottle grime and odour free.
Wash them by hand in light soapy water, scrub out and rinse in clean cold water and dry. Simple!
Sounds good – so why are they better than other reusable bottles or flasks?
Hydro Flask uses patented TempShield double-wall vacuum insulation to lock in temperature and prevent condensation – keeping your drinks perfectly hot or perfectly cold, whatever you need!
The hydro flask is made of 18/8 pro grade stainless steel ensuring the taste of your drink won’t retain or transfer taste. Plus the stainless steel makes them very durable, and they’re ergonomically designed to boot!
Hydro Flask products have a signature powder coat making them easy to grip, sweat-resistant, and (again) durable – so you can take your Hydro Flask anywhere.
How long does Hydro Flask keep water cool for?
Straight from the horse’s mouth, the Hydro Flask Website, here’s the scoop on the cooling or warming capabilities of these awesome drink flasks:
Water will stay cool for 24 hours and hot drinks for 12. However, the coffee ranges keeps drinks warm for up to 6 hours.
Which Hydro Flasks Fit into car cupholders?
Anything up to a 24 Oz (710 ml) standard hydro flask will fit snugly in your car cup holder. The others will have to go on the passenger seat or in the footwell, but don’t worry, they’re 100% leak proof if you put the lid on correctly!
Buyers guide to Hydro Flasks
When you’re buying think about the following:
- Build quality and durability
Design’s not just about how the flask looks – although it makes sense if you’re going to invest to get a colour you like! You need to think about the function, and what you’re going to be using it for. Coffee? Water? Wine?! Buy one that’s going to suit your needs.
These flasks are a simple but ultra-cool design, in a range of colours that are bound to appeal to all tastes and styles – whether your’re boho, hipster or trend-setter!
Build Quality and Durability
The hydro flask is made of 18/8 pro grade stainless steel. This makes them very strong and durable, so they’re unlikely to dent, and can take a fair amount of punishment. The signature powder coating adds to the durability! They’re built to last, and if you take care of them properly you can enjoy your Hydro Flask for years to come.
The old adage buy cheap pay dear was thought up for a reason! If you’re using something every day, it pays to invest. Ok, so Hydro Flasks aren’t the cheapest on the market. But they represent incredible value for money, and when you think about it in terms of price per use it’s a no brainer – mine has paid for itself countless times over!
As well as purchasing a quality product you’re also helping the environment, and ensuring your own health isn’t compromised by nasties in cheap metal and plastic bottles sneaking into your water.
