Thanks!
We have the narrow mouth bottles and you can fit the half moon ice cubes into them, no problem.

Especially on hot day, I assume you have refilled it several times with fresh icy cold water?

I have an 18 oz Thermos that I love. Keeps my beverage icy cold. But I am surprised how quickly I drink down 18 ounces. Then I am looking for more ice and cold water.
I can attest that I've filled the 24 oz bottle I have off the chilled tap (no ice) at noon, and at 11PM, the water is still cold, and at 8am, it's still cool. I haven't had it out in the heat yet, that test comes in 2 weeks. It's a vacuum, so there is a physical barrier between the environments within and without the bottle.

...
I live in the desert. I left my hydro flask in the car, parked at the airport, with ice water in it on Monday, returned from a trip to Dallas on Tuesday, the water was still cold and had ice in it.

These are the best h2o bottles I have owned. I have two gripes...
I would prefer an opening like the one found on sigg water bottles, but that would eliminate the convienence of being able to add ice to this water bottle.
I wish the water bottles could hold more water.

You can add ice at the behining of the day, continue to refill the bottle, and have ice left at the end of the day.

Again, these are the best.

First of all I want to say a big thank you to Kevin for setting this up! Good for DISers and also GKTW - NICE!

Received my first one in the mail just yesterday and just ordered 2 more with the new DIS discount. What a great product!

I ordered two that were on backorder. Then Kevin anounced the discount. I called and asked if I can get the discount since they were not shipped yet. The girl told me that Will would call me back. I also emailed Will twice and never a reply. I did receive and I think they are great, but as of now they will not get any repeat business from me. If they tell me I can't get the discount because I ordered before it was started fine, but at least have the courtesy of letting me know. Vent over.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Before we left for the Parks in the morning, we filled the bottle about 3/4 with ice ( we did have to smack the cubes a bit to fit them in the bottle ) - then we added water. as we drank down the water, we just refilled it throughout the day. When we got back to the room in the evening, we still had some ice in the bottle

I have been reading about the hydroFlask on this site and podcast for a while now and have been very interested. After reading about this DIScount and the GKTW connection, I just couldn't wait any longer.

So, I just ordered the 21oz. Standard mouth Flask in Blue.


sub total: $23.39
shipping: $4.00
tax: $0.00
total: $27.39

Not a bad deal at all

BTW, I got free shipping because my order came to over $50. Just thought I'd pass that along.

I just ordered two hydroflasks, but I really wish I could have ordered sport caps for them as well.

I just got my Hydroflask yesterday, but I do plan on buying two more for my DDs.

I filled my Hydroflask yesterday at 11am and the water was still cold today at 11am. I love it!!!

I got a red one. What did you all get?

Is 5% to GKTW automatic or do you need to do anything?

Thanks,
