- Keeps contents hot or cold for hours
- BPA-free stainless steel
- Fits in most standard cup holders
- Lifetime warranty
Hydro Flask has become one of the most tried and true brands when it comes to drinking vessels. Its line of water bottles is unparalleled in keeping drinks hot and cold all day long, no matter the weather. Hydro Flash’s Standard Mouth water bottles are a particularly versatile option because of their 1.81-inch opening, which makes it easy to fill with water, coffee, or sports drinks.
At 24 ounces, this Hydro Flash bottle is the largest of Hydro Flask’s Standard Mouth options. The water bottle carries plenty of your favorite beverages, but it still fits in the average cup holder or backpack side pocket. The TempShield double-wall vacuum insulation is the magic behind drinks staying hot or cold for hours, and the flex cap is easily unscrewed for quick and easy thirst-quenching action. Best of all, the inside temperature is not even remotely affected by the outside temperature, ensuring that you won’t burn your fingers or have moisture in your backpack resulting from condensation from cold drinks. Made of durable, food-grade stainless steal, this Hydro Flash water bottle is BPA-free and resistant to bacteria and odors.
While there are many water bottles on the market, Hydro Flask continues to lead the pack. Every Hydro Flask water bottle is covered by a lifetime warranty, so you can be confident that Hydro Flash has got you covered no matter what ups and downs your adventures throw your way.

- 2-person capacity
- 2 large vestibules
- Ridge pole support creates extra living space
- Fly doors roll up for a clear sky view
The REI Co-op Trail Hut 2 Tent with Footprint was designed with the nearly year-round camping duo in mind.

This dome-shaped tent splits the difference between comfort and price, is easy to setup, and has all the storage you need to protect your essentials from the elements.
Experienced campers will already be familiar with the setup required for the Co-op Trail Hut 2. It has poles of equal-length and pole clips, making it relatively painless to set up.

The two large vestibules enable you to store all of your gear, keeping it safe and secure, without cutting into the main living area.

The Co-op Trail Hut 2 was made with solution-dyed mesh, reducing the amount of water and energy needed to produce the tent. This tent has everything you need to enjoy a night under the stars.
