I have a stockpile of insulated mugs and bottles, but they all have two major downfalls: I have to wash them by hand and they will leak if dropped or knocked over.
Fortunately, Hydro Flask has come up with a new model (the Coffee Flex Sip) that solves both of those problems. Available in a 12 ounce, 16 ounce, or 20 ounce vessel, the Flex Sip is topped off with an innovative leakproof lid. Simply twist the lid to the right until it turns from black to red, and the container is locked. Toss it in your bag, flip it upside down, or drop it—not a single drop of liquid escapes. When you’re ready to drink, turn the Flex Sip to the left until it opens.
Made from a trademarked TempShield double-wall vacuum insulation, the Coffee Flex Sip kept my tea hot all day long. Fill it with ice water in the morning, and it will still be refreshingly cold by nighttime.
The best part of the new Hydro Flask? Throwing it in the dishwasher when you’re done drinking, instead of having to wash it by hand like most other insulated bottles. That feature alone makes it worthy of a purchase in my eyes.
The Flex Sip comes in 10 fun colors to brighten up your morning routine and makes a great gift for the clumsy coffee addict in your life.
