Hydro Flask 32 oz Bottle Review

The Hydro Flask Escape Collection has now sold out but this review also applies to the Hydro Flask 32 oz wide mouth bottle!


The Hydro Flask Escape Collection is a limited edition range of 32 oz flasks that feature unique colorways and artwork. The idea behind these cool designs is to allow you to choose where you want to rejuvenate. The choices are, the ‘Desert‘, ‘Coast‘ or ‘Mountains‘. Because we already spend so much time in the mountains, we decided to choose the coast design… ?

Here are the 3 designs side by side:

The flasks will keep your hot drinks, hot or cold drinks, cold for at least a day. Hydro Flask state that cold drinks will stay cold for 24 hours and hot drinks for 12 hours. That’s more than enough for most people who are on day-adventures. Having used flasks for some time now, I’d recommend you wash them out every day anyway, to keep them free from bacteria.

32 oz (or roughly 1 liter) is larger than most insulated flasks that you may see people walking around with, which tend to be around 21-24 oz (0.6-0.7L). This has some advantages throughout the day as you won’t need to refill it as often. I also keep mine next to my bed at night as I have two cheeky cats who will start drinking my water if I use a glass, which doesn’t have a lid. So this flask has solved that very niche problem for me.

I have also noticed that having a larger volume of water seems to keep my drink colder for longer than smaller insulated bottles. There’s probably some science behind that!?

Wide Mouth

Drinking from the 32 oz bottle with a wide mouth feels easier than what you would normally have on a smaller bottle, it almost feels like drinking out of a mug, I like it. Cleaning out the flask is easier too, with a wide mouth as you can just about get a sponge in there without the need for getting a proper bottle brush. Although I would say for $13, a bottle brush will make your life easier!

Rubber Boot

The Hydro Flask Escape bottle comes with a removable silicone Flex Boot for added protection and traction on slippery surfaces. It also makes placing the bottle on surfaces much quieter which is just nicer.

Lid Handle

This is so ‘handy’ because the bottle is quite wide to grab onto if you have other things in your hands. You can also use the handle to attach it to your rucksack if you don’t have a bottle pocket available or one that’s large enough.

The Hydro Flask Escape bottle has a double walled vacuum construction made with high-grade stainless steel which will ensure a pure taste to your drinks with no metal flavor transference. Stainless steel is strong too so the bottle is very durable. Because the construction is a double walled vacuum the bottle will keep your hot drinks, hot and also your cold drinks, cold for much longer. The lid is rubber sealed which improves the insulation and prevents any leakage.
