When hiking or camping this spring, one major essential is a water bottle. Little River Outdoors carries the top line of Hydro Flasks on the market. What makes Hydro Flask the water bottle of 2021 is its TempShield technology. Two walls of stainless steel with a vacuum between prevent condensation and heat transfer to the outside of the bottle, keeping drinks hot or cold for hours on end. Hydro Flask’s standard lid has a honeycomb structure to help this insulation, making it 100% leakproof. What really sets Hydro Flasks apart from all the other vacuum-insulated metal bottles on the market is their distinct, trendy look and the options to personalize them. Even when a consumer coats a bottle with a collage of stickers, you can still tell it’s a Hydro Flask. The powder-coat paint, available in multiple different shades, gives it its vibrant color and design.
