Well, with Seattle breaking all sorts of heat records this summer I must say that I’ve been hankering for a lot more cold water than usual. This morning, while refilling my large 3 gallon water jugs yet again at PCC, I noticed some sleek water bottles on the shelf below the water dispensing machine. Hmmm.
Labeled Hydro Flask and available in a variety of sizes and colors, I was curious. The label touted that the unique vacuum technology could keep water cold for 24 hours. Priced at about $25 for a 21 ounce bottle, I waffled as to whether I needed it but I reasoned that I’d be saving money AND water AND ice, so I bought it. Wow. It was an excellent purchase and I am now hooked on my 21-ounce Everest blue bottle. Indeed it has kept my filtered water fresh and delightfully cold all day. I’ve already purchased another one for my husband via Amazon. Made from 18/8 stainless, the bottles keep liquids cold or hot, and they don’t sweat when filled with cold liquids or transmit heat to the exterior when filled with hot. Replacement caps are readily available. Lightweight yet extremely durable, they are easily transported to far flung exotic locales or even just to the office or school.
