Invest in Hydration: Hydro Flask

When I was in the Florida Keys last October, the weather was beautiful, yet brutal. I had to constantly remind myself of the importance of staying hydrated. Thankfully, I had my Hydro Flask with me – until I left it in the hotel room when we checked out. Having to endure the 18 hour road-trip home, I was reminded by standard plastic water bottles turning warm after 30 minutes that Hydroflasks are one of the most important investments to my health. 

Hydro Flask is one of the original insulated water bottles, founded in 2009 by Travis Rosbach and Cindy Weber. Rosbach was not impressed by commercial water bottles’ inability to keep liquids at the right temperature, so he took matters into his own hands. 


The stainless steel bottles are made with their TempShield technology, which is vacuum insulated with a two-wall separation. This ensures liquids stay hot for 12 hours and cold for 24. Heading into summer, I know I’m not the only one who needs my water to stay cold when I’m in the sun. 

Exploding into a huge brand with a variety of products, you can customize your Hydro Flask, choosing the type, size, and color. They also offer tumblers, kitchenware, coolers, and accessories to ensure your bottle is protected from scratches. 

I chose the 24 oz standard bottle in the shade Dew, a juicy and vibrant minty-blue color that is perfect for summer. I also love the convenient size – not too big or too small, which allows me to bring it anywhere without weighing my bag down. 

You can purchase a Hydro Flask product on their official website or in various stores such as REI, Urban Outfitters, and more.
