Hydro Flasks

Last October Peak Mountaineering were first introduced to a lightweight insulating flask brand called HydroFlask.  The company sent one to us for testing and unbeknownst to us they had sneakily filled it with ice.  When it arrived we could hear rattling inside and thought it must be damaged.  As it turned out we needn’t have worried.  The trick with the ice was simply a handy way for the company to prove how well insulated Hydro Flasks are - despite a couple of days in the post there was still plenty of ice left.

We were certainly impressed, but decided the Peak Mountaineering junior team could do a more scientific experiment and so we set them to work testing the insulating properties when the flask was filled with boiling water.  The results were very impressive.  As the photo below shows the water had dropped by less than 30 degrees after 6 hours and was still plenty warm enough to make a decent mug of tea.

Besides the insulating qualities of the flask we were also impressed with the Hydroflask design.  It is surprisingly light, has great styling and a solid and easy to use lid closure.  It has become our flask of choice for all mountain actvities and we used them all through the winter (where a hot drink was very welcome and the chunky screw top lid was easy to use with bulky gloves on) and now into summer where it is great to get a cool drink at any time (one came multi pitching recently on a baking day in Snowdonia and it was great that the flask could be hung straight from a harness by clipping a carabiner onto the sturdy lid loop).  It is an all round brilliant design.
