Review: Hydro Flasksks

My light blue 40 oz. Hydro Flask keeps my water super cold for hours and hours. Definitely a worthwhile accessory, even for non-VSCO types.

The scrunchie, the over-sized t-shirt, the Vans, and the most important of all: the Hydro Flask.

You all probably know that these items make up a “VSCO” girl. However, I’m not here to talk about a VSCO girl, but rather, her most important accessory — the Hydro Flask.

These stainless steel water bottles come in various bright colors that make them the perfect fit for any aesthetic.

But are these Hydro Flasks worth the $60? The answer is yes.

The Hydro Flask water bottles come in two styles — wide and standard mouth —  and hold water in capacities of up to 64 ounces. I’ve personally adopted the 40-oz. light blue water bottle because, as an athlete, I need to hold large amounts of water. I find the 64-oz. water bottle is too large to carry around so 40-oz. was the perfect size for me. 

One thing you should know about the Hydro Flask, though, is that it is LOUD. So if you accidentally drop your Hydro Flask on the floor, be well aware that everyone will turn back and look at you.

It should be noted, however, that the same stainless steel interior that causes the obnoxiously loud noises, is what keeps the water FREEZING. I keep my water bottle out in 50-degree weather, and my water is still as cold as when I took it out of the refrigerator. 

So you can definitely sacrifice a minor inconvenience for ice-cold water any time, anywhere. Your water is cold, and the turtles are saved. What more can you ask for?
