Hope you burn it in the street. That and the poor sap that picks it up doesn't get sick.

Memorize the tag. It's the first way to tell. It's consistency never changes. Out of all eight of my jackets they are exactly the same. So close it's almost like moncler has one machine that makes them all then distributes them. To me the C is the tell tale way. It's leg is flat and will never curve up.

I would say that's a D- copy. The A+ copies are very,very good.

- Hydroflask water bottle
What is up with this? It seems to be a thing now. When I was a kid, we had WATER FOUNTAINS, else, you went thirsty and surprisingly still LIVED. At home we had CUPS. Likely cheap plastic ones left over from some fast food drink.


Man, kids are awful.



Not yours Spoo, bet they're OK.

@Letric deetz on the gay yeti

That's a keeper beater suit.

The movement towards Stainless Steel water bottles has its roots in Canteens and those big clear colored plastic water bottles with the screw-off tops every gymrat had in the 2000's. It also has its roots in reducing plastic waste for the good of the planet.

I was first introduced to HydroFlask through my local Dutch Bros. Coffee house several years ago. They sold em for $20 and every time you chose to use the bottle for your coffee instead of a cup you received a $0.50 discount on your coffee/tea/etc. I really liked how the container sustained the temperature of whatever was inside for a prolonged period. Hot coffee stays hot all morning, and cold iced tea or cold water stays cold all afternoon.

I use a HydroFlask every day, every gym/workout, on every camping trip and for every festival. They seal really well and usually don't leak all over the inside of your backpack/etc. It's like one of my EDC items like a Watch, Wallet, Keys, Knife, etc. I've bought 2 retail and have thrifted another 2 plus 2 Kleen Kanteens. If you thrift em, just make sure it's in like-new condition and the mouthpiece isn't all dirty and chewed up. Preferably not stained/smelling of coffee either. I like to use separate bottles for coffee/etc. and water so that the water one stays clean tasting.


HydroFlask is among the best, if not THE best insulated water bottle. The name is also perfectly descriptive of the product and has good mouth-feel to say. They're not cheap at like $30-35+ either. HydroFlask is a big name now, much like Ferrari or Rolex. They're sold at higher end establishments. The name has status. If you own one you're seen as higher grade than those with lower quality bottles or no bottle at all. So I imagine the name HydroFlask has cache among youth who are increasingly health-concious and at schools you have to have the newnew brand-name shit right? Nike, ArcTeryx, The North Face, HydroFlask.

When I was a kid, I had Nalgene water bottles. I've been using reusable coffee mugs (both at home and at coffee shops) for 20+ years. There's nothing unusual about wanting to save environmental resources. In fact, I would recommend it. Your grandkids will thank you.

As for why that particular brand is popular? I can't really say, much like The North Face, the appeal is probably linked to some celebrity endorsement...

I'm all for saving resources, but the water-bottle thing gets me.

As a germaphobe, I don’t like the uncertainty of hand washing, preferring instead the hepatitis-free one and done of a cool paper cup.
