I love this water bottle because it always keeps my water cold, and it doesn't sweat like my other plastic bottles. It's also just the right size for sipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brianhk45 Best built bottle I have ever used
I live in Florida and spend lots of time in the outdoors. These are the best insulated bottles I have ever used. I use them to carry my protein shake and water. I bought two. They are easy to clean and very robust. I fill them up at 0540 and when I open the second bottle at 1400, there is still lots of ice and it is very, very cold. The outside doesn't have condensation. Which is great for the humidity of Florida. LL Bean always does quality. I love these bottles and will not use anything else. I am extremely impressed. Thanks LL Bean!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ml1432 Awesome water bottle
I LOVE this water bottle. I put water in it for my workouts -- hot yoga, running, gym, etc. If I put 5 to 6 ice cubes and the rest water into the bottle, the water stays cold and ice cubes still present after up to 10 hours.

I take ice water with me in my daily travels, to the gym and to run errands. With as hot as it gets in the car during the Summer, it's a challenge to keep drinking water cold. I became a believer in the Hydro Flask when hiking last month; the water my husband and I left in the car was too hot to drink after hiking, but my stepson's water was in a Hydroflask. His water was ice cold!
I ordered the 32 oz Hydro Flask from LL Bean and I just can't believe how well it works. Ice water put in the Hydro Flask in the evening is still ice cold in the morning! The bottle does not sweat either. Time to ditch my Nalgene bottles, Tervis, Bubba bottle and the insulated jackets I had bought for these. It can also be used to keep drinks hot so no more cold coffee!

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.
