No matter how insatiable your appetite for the outdoors is, stopping to eat food, and in winter, food that’s warm, from time to time is obviously quite important. One ingenious solution to your food quandary, and one that doesn’t involve lugging a backpack full of cooking equipment with you on days involving steep climbs, is the Hydro Flask Food Flask.
Available in a variety of nice colours, at a 12oz and 18oz volume, the flask’s TempShield double wall insulation keeps your hot food hotter for longer; meaning you won’t have to settle for lukewarm leftovers or tepid tikka masala. The fact it’s made of pro-grade stainless steel means it’s easily cleaned and won’t retain or transfer flavours from one usage to the next. So, you won’t have to ever worry about today’s refreshing strawberry smoothie tasting like yesterday’s peppery goulash.

The product has a scratch-resistant, slip-free, grip thanks to its unique powder coat and a weighty, without being heavy, feel to it that screams durability. You get the sense that this thing could really take a beating, and still not spill a drop of the cuisine contained within it. The extremely secure lid only adds to that impression.
Reassuringly, when you consider this is a place to store food you’re planning to eat and digest, the Hydro Flask Food Flask is entirely free of the controversial chemical BPA (bisphenol A). Research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers which have been made with it – leading to concerns that this exposure can have negative effects on the brain, behaviour and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. Other research has suggested a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure. Whatever the truth to it, we’re glad the Hydro Flask Food Flask is completely BPA-free.
If you have an outdoorsy life that’s go, go, go we can’t recommend this bit of kit from Hydro Flask enough. With one of these nestled in your backpack, you’ll always know where your next hot meal is coming from; no matter where your hunger for adventure takes you.
