Tumalo Creek Hydroflasks
We started carrying the 18 and 24 oz. Hydroflask bottles at the shop about a month ago. They have a matte finish in both orange and turquoise (our new colors) and are beautifully emblazoned with the new logo for Tumalo Creek. These bottles are truly a paddler’s dream as they keep hots hot for 12 hours or more, and colds cold for over a day. Imagine paddling all afternoon under the blazing sun, knowing there is a deliciously cold bottle of clean water to look forward to long after the ice in the cooler has melted.
A Hydroflask of hot tea is also a godsend if you are out on the river in cold and rainy conditions. Last month on a raft trip, we experienced some pretty wet weather, and opening up my steaming Hydroflask every afternoon filled with black tea definitely put some smiles on everyone’s faces as we passed it around.
Hydroflask is local company based right here in Bend. Owners Travis Rosbach and Cindy Morse have made it their life’s mission to create the world’s best water bottle. These are 100% BPA-free and the double-wall insulation makes them condensation proof. But the company’s mission is also environmental, as reusable bottles reduce the rate of plastic consumption. In addition 5% of all proceeds from bottles sold will be donated to the charity of the owner’s choosing.
