Check out the review for the Hydroflask 21 ounce bottle with a sport cap and see if it is worthy of adding to your backpack for your next adventure event.
The Hydroflask bottles are hydration on the go that is durable for the long haul. No more breaking cheap plastic and worrying if it sat in your car dashboard too long and now your going to get cancer.
The 21 oz Hydroflask Standard Mouth Bottle has an insulated sport cap (think drinking while riding a bike or jogging). You can slip it in your backpack or gym bag easily and your ready to go.
I have personally taken it with me on bike rides, a day hike, or to the range for shooting.
My wife had put water and ice cubes in the bottle and had forgot about it. The next day she picked it up to put it in the sink and saw that there were still ice cubes in the bottle. How about that for insulation?!
In the product details you can read about the TempShieldTM insulation that gets rid of condensation and will keep beverages cold up to 24 hours and hot up to 12 hours. We believe it.

This bottle is extremely durable as it is made of durable 18/8 Pro-Grade Stainless Steel construction.
We dont put it in the dishwasher but instead just set it in the sink with hot soapy water and wash it out with a rag and sometimes a bottle brush.

The cool thing about the sport cap is that it has a rubber spout (easy to get your teeth on it when riding a mtn bike) and also has a an area that you can clip the bottle in to your back pack.

My wife liked this bottle so much that she went out and bought one of their wine cooler mugs.
We will be testing the flask more and do an update review at 90 days.
Question: What happens if I lose the sport cap – that is a pretty detailed piece of gear and I cant just put any water bottle cover on it?
Answer: Hydroflask has got your covered on a replacement cap. Check out the Hydro Flask Standard Mouth Insulated Water Bottle Sport Cap and get a quick replacement or an extra.
I have not had to replace mine but at least have a go to source in case I do need one.

I have put it through a fair amount of abuse and it is working great. I am taking it out this afternoon for a mountain bike ride in the forest.
