Hydration is not a sexy topic of discussion, but it is important nonetheless. Humans are about 65% water, and the experts seem to agree that an average person should be drinking about two liters (half a gallon) of water per day. It’s called the 8 x 8 rule. You need to drink eight ounces, eight times a day. During physical activity this amount goes up. Golf is no exception, especially when it’s hot outside. Forget about plastic bottles. The best way to stay hydrated is to get a good reusable water bottle like the one Hydro Flask makes. Mother nature will thank you. Here are 3 reasons why you should get a Hydro Flask:
- Durability – Hydro Flask is made from 18/8 (food grade) stainless steel and powder coated in several different colors. This thing is virtually bulletproof. Powder coating is an electrostatic process that is heat treated and much much tougher than paint, so you know it will last. If that doesn’t convince you, maybe the lifetime warranty will.
- Versatility – Hydro Flask comes in a wide, standard and narrow mouth configuration in over a dozen sizes from 12 ounces all the way up to 64 ounces. You can get 4 different lids to suit your needs, over 10 different color choices and color bands to fit around the bottle for added personalization.
- Function – The double wall stainless steel Hydro Flask is vacuum insulated, which means there is no air between the walls of the bottle. That also means it will keep liquids hot for up to 12 hours, and cold liquids will stay cold for up to 24 hours! To test this I filled to bottle with ice and water and left it on the kitchen counter overnight, and in the morning it was still full of ice. The Hydro Flask is also BPA Free, resists stains and odors and is hypoallergenic. Different lids allow you to customize your Hydro Flask depending on your needs. Wide mouths are great for ice and water, but a flip lid works best for coffee or other hot liquids.
You would think that there’s nothing really exciting about a water bottle, but Hydro Flask has made me a believer. When playing golf recently I filled the bottle with ice and Gatorade, and even though the black bottle was hot to the touch on the outside from being in the blazing sun, my drinks on the inside remained ice cold all day. The 21 oz standard mouth Hydro Flask is perfect for golf. The opening is big enough for ice cubes and the bottle fits perfectly in golf cart cup holders. From now on my Hydro Flask goes with me everywhere I go to play!
