It all started on a sweltering day at the beach in Hawaii in 2008.
That day, Hydro Flask’s founder had an epiphany that forever changed the water bottle market: Instead of a bland, sweaty, sand-encrusted container of unrefreshing, lukewarm water, the world needed to quench its thirst with a reusable bottle that offered safe drinking and high performance in an attractive design. The result was the first Hydro Flask, incorporating double-wall vacuum insulation, BPA-free materials, food grade stainless steel, a range of fun, durable colors and a charitable arm called 5% Back.
Hydro Flask was subsequently launched in Bend, Oregon, at the base of the Cascade Mountains, a hub for world class skiing and snowboarding, cycling and mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing, fishing, golf and craft brewing. Word quickly spread among recreational hobbyists, professional athletes, beer enthusiasts and coffee lovers of a better water bottle with a breakthrough combination of design, technology and performance. Our fans were amazed to find ice-cold water in their Hydro Flask after leaving it in a blazing hot car for hours and equally impressed after snowshoeing up a mountain and being able to enjoy piping hot coffee at the summit.
We quickly expanded our offerings to include a wide range of insulated flasks, such as the world’s first vacuum insulated 64 oz beer growler, the flagship product in a line that includes a 12 oz standard mouth flask, food flasks, an 18 oz coffee flask, a 21 oz standard mouth flask popular with golfers and outdoor recreationalists, and a 40 oz wide mouth flask that’s perfect for the yoga studio.
To this day, Hydro Flask focuses exclusively on delivering the world’s best quality and widest variety of high performance, double-wall vacuum insulated products. Each flask is made from high-quality 18/8 stainless steel and is stylish, lightweight, reusable and BPA-free. Hydro Flasks provide users the freedom to go anywhere with the assurance that their cold liquids will stay cold for 24 hours, and hot liquids will stay hot for 12 hours.
Our focus on top quality insulated flasks has paid off: Hydro Flask has earned awards and recognition across the Outdoor, Natural Foods, Beer, Golf and Yoga industries:
