Hydro Flask 18 oz Standard Mouth Bottle

Alex’s Pick – Content Manager & Completed Round-The-World Trip in 2016

In my experience, the best way to access safe and clean drinking water is to keep it on you. Hydro Flask constructs some of the most reliable hydration vessels on the market, and I consider this 18oz. water bottle to be my travel essential. It’s made of pro-grade stainless steel and keeps my beverages cold for up to 12 hours. I’ve taken it sightseeing European cities, backpacking East Asia, and camping in the Canadian wilderness.  See it >
