About Hydro Flask
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 sho...rt years later, we now offer over hundreds of 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. 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.
