Sleek and durable, Hydro Flask is an insulated water bottle you can really form a bond with. Our Best in Class drinking vessel, it’s a customizable classic available in numerous colors, sizes, and lid styles. Strategist kitchen and dining writer Emma Wartzman relies on it to keep her drinks warm or cool all day; other Hydro Flaskers on staff include our senior editor Simone Kitchens and editor Maxine Builder. Builder switched allegiances to the wide-mouth, flex-lid Hydro Flask when she realized a Nalgene wouldn’t keep her water cool enough during hot yoga sessions. (The bottle keeps liquids hot up to six hours and cold up to 24.) It’s also her “favorite water bottle to bring on long car rides, where I don’t want my water bottle to get baked and weight isn’t a primary concern.”
Ready to join the movement? You can find a nicely discounted Hydro Flask at Nordstrom or REI today, and there are options for drinkers who prefer to get baptized by a wide lid or sip discreetly from a straw.
