40-ounce. The term “40” has been around for years, most notably used and heard from the steps of urban homes when referring to malt liquor.

Ready for the kicker?

Hydro Flask brought it in stainless form. The insulated nature brings the ability to keep your cool drinks cold and your warm drinks hot. Long gone are the days where you have to put up with luke-warm liquids when you need a kick start. You can Hydro Flask yourself to greatness. Stop searching for the perfect bottle and trust me when I say “The Hydro Flask will change the way outdoor men and women think about preparing for their next trip”.

I spent an entire month putting this Hydro Flask through tests. Fishing, check. Hiking, check. Working, check. Throw it on the ground to make sure it can withstand some abuse, check. A friend, Josh Mills over at MillsFly, introduced me to his Hydro Flask. I think I owe him a 6-pack for this one. Or maybe a 40 of Old English? Seems to fit the bill.

Did I think a 40-ounce container would be too big for a daily companion? Yes, but jumping at the chance to own a larger container meant that I could take more water with me during bass tournaments. If I could replace two or three containers with one Hydro Flask, I’d save space in the boat and money over the long run. No more buying cold plastic water bottles or freezing a milk jug just to make my drinks last through a 12-hour fishing tournament.

Real world conditions proved that Hydro Flask is the real deal. They make a product that actually does what it says it will do. The connection between engineering and marketing are often mediocre at best, or at least my wallet can attest to buying things that just don’t work as advertised. So what types of liquids did I get to enjoy with the Hydro Flask?

Coffee. Water. Juice. Tea. Hot chocolate. Oh and some type of sugary mango drink, courtesy the wife. I’ve personally enjoyed each and every one from my Hydro Flask. Hot liquids hold their temps for hours – I’m talking 10+ hours. Cold liquids remain cold – ice cubes are still ice cubes, even during hot summer days.

With the larger bottle comes a larger top. The Hydro Flask 40-ounce features a wide-mouth design. Their bottles were developed to perform in every environment. Each Hydro Flask is cast from double wall vacuum insulated food grade 18/8 stainless steel, therefore they are BPA-Free and resistant to bacteria and odors. The double wall vacuum insulation technology allows each Hydro Flask to keep its contents Hot and Cold. With easy cleanup,  the Hydro Flask is ready for its next assignment.

While it’s easy to forget about the comfort conveniences on the water, I have to say ‘Thank You’ to Hydro Flask. Since learning about the company’s existence, I’ve come to understand just how nice it is to finally have the perfect bottle with me from dawn to dusk.

The Hydro Flask is available at retailers nationwide and online.  The MSRP for 12 oz. – 40 oz. Flasks ranges from $19.99 – 34.99 respectively, and the 64 oz. Wide Mouth Stainless Steel Growler is MSRP $49.99.
