Since introducing the first all-insulated bottle lineup in 2009, Hydro Flask, out of Bend, Oregon, has embraced both innovation and a culture-driven ethos. It grew to 1 million in sales in only two years; worked at a loss to take all lead tracing out of their manufacturing process; launched the first-ever beer growler. Awards come from all directions: industry growth recognition, ethical business practices, best place to work, and more. Today Hydro Flask offers a wide range of products, from coffee tumblers to wide-mouth flip-lid bottles to cooler packs, and of course water bottles, well-suited to Canada’s outdoor pursuits. It’s more than a sales pitch when Hydro Flask firmly states they don’t accept lukewarm.
