This Hydro Flask Wonder Collection review shows you how a well designed water bottle can put function AND beauty into your hands on the hiking trail and beyond.
Hiking For Her received a limited edition Hydro Flask from this collection in exchange for an unpaid, honest review.
I'm a true believer in the quality and durability built into every Hydro Flask, and you can read more Hiking For Her reviews of their great products here:
If you purchase a Hydro Flask through the links on this website, HFH receives a small percentage of your purchase price.
A 32 ounce, wide mouth bottle called Snowcap from the limited edition Wonder Collection is on display here.
It's also available in a 20 ounce coffee style for your morning commute to the trailhead.

Let's not get carried away with good looks.
As hikers, we demand functionality from our gear.
Work beasts, in other words, that can perform well and literally go the distance with us.
This Hydro Flask Wonder Collection bottle is a fusion of beautiful appearance and thoughtful design to solve a hiker's hydration needs.
When I saw this limited edition design from Hydro Flask, I literally said WOW! out loud.
I also made a mental note: impressive gifting opportunity for the holidays.
Because I'm a big fan of alpine hiking terrain with permanent snow fields and glaciers, the name Snowcap makes me smile.
You could also consider the design evocative of a starry night on a winter hiking trip - another reason to smile.
This design is available in other lovely color choices, all named for memorable moments in the good life of hiking and camping:
Water bottles get knocked around a lot on trails, and I know for a fact it's not just me with horror stories to tell.
Cracked, dented, leaky bottles are sometimes the result.
After hiking in all sorts of nasty terrain with abrasive and gritty opportunities to scuff up these bottles, I've got some results to share with you:
Hydro Flask products come with a lifetime warranty, and speaking from long experience, they stand up to what the trail dishes out, year round.
A Hydro Flask is built to take whatever you throw at it.
Not that I'm recommending that you throw things at it, of course.
The sweat proof finish holds its color and resists scratching (unlike plastic bottles), so this design will be there forever.
Prepare yourself for something new:
How many times have you had that happen on the trail??
There's nothing else as attractive + functional on the market right now for hikers, and folks are going to notice it!
Do these bottles really keep your beverages at the desired temperature?
Yes, within reason.
Really cold or blazing hot conditions will eat into the stated times (not verified for this review) a bit.
Here's how to help them do their job:
If you're a newbie hiker, use whatever water bottle you have handy.
But as your hiking skills grow, realize the wisdom of investing in quality gear from a trusted company like Hydro Flask.
If you're a green hiker, relish the fact that you keep cheap, flimsy single use plastic bottles out of the landfill by using this heavy duty durable bottle for years, if not decades, to come.
Are you a multi tasker? Use one durable, attractive bottle for work, school, travel, sports and the gym.
Worried about how to keep the nooks and crannies of a hydration bladder clean? No worries here.
Sad to say, these Wonder-ful beauties will disappear one day.
No worries, Hydro Flask will come up with something just as cool that will do a beastly good job of keeping us hydrated on the trail.
But why wait?
Snag one now for yourself or a favorite trail buddy.
The only snag?
Choosing your favorite color!
