We’ll keep water icy cold on a hot sunny beach. And serve up a hot coffee on the chairlift ride. We’ll sit patiently by your camp chair with frosty cold beer while you gather wood for the fire. Or keep you hydrated on a hike: ice, water, go. And five hours later, after driving to the trailhead and climbing 2,000 feet, you’ll still have ice and water while you enjoy the view. We’ll bring you hot tea on misty riverside mornings when the steelhead are running, hot cocoa to coax your kids along a snowy trail, and a refreshing sip of “all-about-you” during Saturday afternoon yoga. We’re not just along for the ride. We’re along to help make the ride awesome.
Our Company We are fortunate to call Bend, Oregon home, where there is desert to the east of town and mountains to the west. Our geography says a lot about who we are.
It’s not uncommon for us to meet before work, hike the Cone (one of our many backcountry ski spots) and enjoy hot coffee with a view. Our lunch breaks are often filled with single track and sunshine. And after work, you can find us grilling burgers and sharing growlers on the deck. We don’t hold back when at work or at play, and we don’t accept "lukewarm" - in our attitude toward life...or in the temperature of whatever we happen to be drinking.
Hydro Flask was founded in 2009, when we launched the first all-insulated bottle line-up into the market. From modest beginnings, we exploded with hydration-loving fans everywhere to hit 1 million in sales by 2011. We then turned our attention to the beer market and launched the first-ever insulated growler. And we haven’t stopped since. We continually strive to bring new, innovative solutions to our customers. From insulated caps, to the lightest weight bottles in the insulated category, our dedication to our products and culture remains our number one focus. Six short years later, we now offer over 100 products in four different categories: hydration, coffee, beer and food.
We don’t mean to brag, but we are proud of our accomplishments. We are honored to have made Inc 500’s fastest growing company list and Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work list 2 years in a row and have received other product and industry awards as well.
In 2015, we expanded in Europe, with plans to go worldwide by the end of 2016. Through it all, however, one thing remains clear: we are committed to bringing you unexpected refreshment, wherever your adventures take you. Join us on our mission to save the world from lukewarm.
