Yay! I got my first Hydro Flask! Its a limited edition Wonder Collection Wide-Mouth Vacuum water bottle. I got it as a surprise gift from a friend who saw how beat up my current insulated water bottle was. It looks like she got me a limited edition Snow Cap from REI! There are other Hydro Flask sold online: https://amzn.to/36bRnZh ranging from $27 – $44. However, I believe the Wonder Collection Snow Cap is specific to REI hence its priced very high online: https://amzn.to/30F0pgh. Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases.
I personally love that it can be customized with different color caps, and anti-slip boots for these Hydro Flasks. So many antislip boot colors are available online as well as third party designs: https://amzn.to/2G9wxPJ . The Flex Cap is what i will be using as it should be leak proof and it comes in many colors for customization as well: https://amzn.to/2NM0KIH . I personally did not know there was such a large level of customizing Hyrdro Flask bottles.
Seeing so many competitors for this insulated beverage bottle space such as from Yeti, Pelican, ThermoFlask, and other $15-$25 dollar bottles online, the assumption is the cost of production or wholesale pricing for the bottle may be about under $10. Just a guess, I dont know. Seeing Costco can sell 2 ThermoFlasks for $22, it is probably under $10 dollars to produce. Last time Costco sold a Hydroflask bottle it was $29.
I can see why branding, company mission and customization of the bottles, and plays an important part to keep Hydroflask unique to the fans and consumers. According to their website they donate to support parks which is for a good cause. After trying this 20 oz Hydro Flask for a few days, I love the initial quality and style. I will make followup review after a few weeks of use. Probably by that time I would have customized my Hydro Flask as well.
