Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanderer91 Great insulation, but heavy to carry
This bottle definitely delivers on the cold insulation front (I haven't tried it with a hot beverage yet) and I really like it so far. Two things I've noticed so far that I did not think about prior to purchasing:
1. The double-walled stainless steel construction makes the bottle quite heavy when full (in all fairness it does hold ~ 1 Liter of water...) I like to carry water around with me whenever I travel and it was cumbersome to carry in my bag throughout the day when walking around the city.
2. Because it's made out of metal, the bottle itself gets pretty hot when in the sun (but your water stays cold!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDBeaner Awesome cold retention.
I came into work this morning and yesterday's ice was still in the flask! Don't think of this as a travel cup. It will not fit in your car's cup holder. I can't wait to try it this fall with hot tea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HuskyWalker Ice in after 24 hours
Purchased for my daughter. Granted it is about 50 degrees in her car now during night, but this water bottle is keeping ice in there for over 24 hours. I'm amazed. She wanted the larger Bean water bottle, but it was too large for her cup holder so I exchanged it for this one. She likes how it is lighter weight, the color green, and how she is able to change the lids as needed. Hope this lasts for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pink731pink It really does the job!!!!
I haven't tried a hot drink in the bottle, but it really works for cold drinks. I had it in the car with me filled with ice and water. I left it in the car and the next afternoon when I went out I opened it to take a sip and the water was perfectly cold. I am so impressed!!! Going to be great for the hot Georgia days!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunflower59 Size matters
If you want to stash this 32 oz. bottle in a drink holder (like in a car) or in the side pocket of a backpack, be aware that its diameter is rather large (3-1/2 inches). I was disappointed to find that it does not fit well for me in either of these two often-used spaces. I have to stow it inside my backpack, where it takes up lots of room. I also have to keep in mind that it is relatively heavy (over 2 pounds) when full, when trying to load my pack in a balanced way. Aside from size matters, it's a very useful bottle. Its main advantages are that it doesn't "sweat" (no condensation) on the outside, therefore no concerns about anything around it getting wet, and that it does a great job of keeping hot beverages hot and cold ones cold for quite a long period of time. The "Acai Purple" that I ordered is a nice color, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanshoppersince1993 Great Bottle
I use for water - keeps cold all day. Had to cut down on the amount of Ice I put in because it does not melt in the 10 hours I usually use the bottle. I even left ice in it with the lid off overnight to see what would happen and it was still there in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by H2OBoy "Unofficial Test"
OK, I received my 18oz and 32oz Hydro Flask bottles via UPS yesterday and performed my "unofficial" test on the both of them. I own a very expensive and extremely accurate thermometer that is accurate to the degree! I preheated each bottle with 205 degree water for 2-3 minutes, dumped it out and refilled them. The results are:
32oz bottle using standard lid - starting temp 206 degrees - 8 1/2 hours later 150 degrees(still plenty hot for drinking tea, coffee, or your hot drink of choice).
18 oz bottle using flip top lid - starting temperature 203 degrees - 8 1/2 hours later 116 degrees(more luke warm but still fairly impressive in my mind considering the size of the bottle)
Cold tests to be posted later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Philmac1 Phenomenal!!!
I loaded this bottle with ice thinking it was just like previous bottles I have had. What a surprise when I went to empty it at the end of the day to find the bottle was still loaded with ice stuck together in one big clump, big enough that it would not fit through the large mouth opening. I had to let it sit open overnight before it melted enough that I could empty it. I know now that I do not have to load so much ice in it to keep my drink cold for the day. It surpassed all of my expectations. I highly recommend it!
