How I Keep Cool This Summer – Hydro Flask
It’s no secret that I’m a huge water drinker… but as much as I love water, I’m not a fan of it warm or hot unless it’s in coffee or tea. Years ago my husband and I started carrying our water bottles with us everywhere, but because your typical plastic bottle usually contains some form of BPA, they were not able to be left in the car while shopping and they would get really hot from the sun. Who wants to drink hot water to rehydrate themselves? Certainly not me! Over the last year, my husband and I have invested in the Hydro Flask and it is now a household name. It is the #1 staple in our house and since all of our boys play sports and my husband and I are avid walkers, we enjoy our bottles. Today I share with you how I keep cool this summer and why I think this is such an essential item to have.
You’ve seen it featured in my Thirsty Thursday videos time and time again. The Hydro Flask has been my number one drinking companion since I first started using it a year ago. It goes where you go, whether out and about or working out, it will keep your drink ice cold or piping hot for hours. I am sharing with you the 40 oz bottle but they come in a variety of sizes. The Hydro Flask is an award-winning global leader in high performance, insulated stainless steel flasks. They were founded in 2009 in beautiful Bend, Oregon and the company’s mission is to save the world from lukewarm.
Hydro Flask uses the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel and the Hydro Flask food and beverage flasks are stylish while still offering all the necessities like BPA-free, recyclable and backed by a lifetime warranty. Hydro Flask believes strongly that great flasks and great causes go hand-in-hand. Because of this, through its charitable arm 5% back, consumers can allocate a portion of the net profit of their purchase to a charity they choose.

Hydro Flask offers a variety of different products that include:
- Bottles (Ranging from 12 oz to 40 oz)
- Beer Growlers (64 oz and 32 oz)
- True Pint (16 oz beer pint)
- Coffee (12 oz, 16 oz & 20 oz coffee flasks)
- Food (12 oz and 18 oz food flasks)
My family and I are huge supporters of the Hydro Flask brand. Each person in my family owns a 40 oz. bottle. While each one is an investment (depending on where you buy them they can retail for about $40 for a 40 oz. flask), they are well worth the cost. During Sports, my sons need to hydrate and keep cool, especially in the warm weather that you get here in Hawaii.
Hydro Flask has Universal Benefits that are great for daily use as well as for anyone:
- TempShieldTM Protected
- Keeps hot up to 6 hours
- Keeps cold up to 24 hours
- 18/8 Pro Grade Stainless Steel

Hydro Flask is known for their Temperature, Taste and Transport. (temperature) TempShield is used in 100% of Hydro Flask products, which is a unique double wall insulation that protects temperature for up to 24 hours cold and 6 hours hot. (taste) The 18/8 pro-grade stainless steel won’t retain or transfer flavors, ensuring the pure taste of your beverage. (transport) Proprietary powder coat offers an easy-grip, sweat-free and extra-durable bottle that you can take anywhere.
Unlike other stainless steel bottles my family and I have had in the past, the Hydro Flask bottle is sturdy. Other bottles have dented quite easily but these have retained its shape for quite a bit. Of course, if it drops on a hard surface, it can get dinged, but overall it has lasted us quite some time. I have had my original flask for over a year with minimal damage to it.
I love that Hydro Flask offers a variety of different accessories for your flask. A Wide Mouth Straw attachment is a favorite of ours and it allows us to carry our water with ice in it all day. What is so awesome is that even on a hot day, with my bottle in the car, my flask is still ice cold and most of the time my ice is still wiggling around inside the flask. The bottle never sweats which makes it perfect to store anywhere without worrying that it will ruin any of my electronics or furnishings and I love how convenient it is to take with us on the go.
When it comes to staying cool and hydrated this summer or anytime of the year, I know I can rely on my Hydro Flask to keep me cool. It’s the best summer necessity to have and an essential in my book. We are completely hooked – my husband takes his to work daily and the boys take theirs to school and practice. It’s definitely something I think you should check out.
It’s an investment for a water bottle – but many times in the past I have left my flask in the sun while out at the beach or in the car and the ice is still there and my water is still very cold hours later. There are not too many of those types of stainless steel bottles on the market today that can offer you that kind of awesomeness. Who wants to drink warm water anyway, if not for coffee or tea? lol
