Gear Review: Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Water Bottle

A double-wall insulated bottle that is amazingly effective for its weight.

With the Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Water Bottle, you can make tea in the morning and drink it hot in the afternoon. This double-wall insulated bottle is amazingly effective for the weight. We left it outside on a night when temps dipped to 17°F, and water inside was on the hot side of warm after eight hours. The high-quality stainless steel is BPA-free and tough as, well, steel. Comes in multiple sizes. $24 (18 oz. bottle); 10 oz.; hydroflask.com
