People say Iron Flask is really similar to Hydro Flask.
Why I Purchased Iron Flask Over Hydro Flask
I've been debating between the Hydro Flask and the Iron Flask, I finally decided on the Iron Flask for three reasons. The first reason I chose the Iron Flask over the Hydro Flask, is that it comes with three lids instead of one. I know that you can purchase additional lids for the Hydro Flask, but it's at an additional cost, whereas with the Iron Flask the lids are included. Secondly, I purchased the Iron Flask because of the sleek design, they have changed the logo on the flask from painted to engraved, which should last longer than the original design of the Iron Flask bottles, in addition, the Iron Flask is more contemporary, in my opinion than the Hydro Flask (as far as logos). This isn't really an issue when it comes to the function of the flask, but if I'm going to be carrying around a 40 oz flask, I want the bottle to blend in and look professional. Lastly, price, I was unaware up until recently that Hydro Flask offers a warranty for their products, I'm unsure of the details of that warranty, but the price of this flask is unbeatable for the quality and accessories. Plus if the flask is dropped or dented, I'm not going to be as disappointed as I would be if I dropped a $50 flask. There are several benefits to staying hydrated throughout the day and the amount of water we should be drinking depends on our body weight, but I'm almost positive that investing in this flask will increase your daily water intake by having ice cold water (or hot, if that's your preference) re...

I own several Hydro Flasks, I've now converted to Iron Flask. Here are the reasons why: 1. These bottles are just as durable as Hydro Flask, and are of similar manufacturing quality. 2. When I order a Hydro Flask, I only get one lid. Iron Flask comes with three. The lids are compatible with Hydro Flasks (and vice versa) so there's no issue with having already bought into one system and having to buy a bunch of parts to switch over. 3. The cost, for an Iron Flask with three lids, is about half (maybe less) than what I've paid for Hydro Flasks of the same size. 4. (Probably won't matter to most people) The red Iron Flask is a nice standard red. The 'red' Hydro Flasks are more orangey red. Iron Flask, if you're reading this...I'd really like the option to buy a bottle in silver, and I'd like the option (even just on your website) to buy bottles with the flex boot that Hydro Flask offers on some of its bottles. The Iron Flask lids do have the same issue as the Hydro Flask lids - if the rubber gasket falls out of the lid, it will leak. The lids are the same quality between the brands, so my Iron Flasks aren't any more leaky than my Hydro Flasks. I haven't noticed any difference in how long my drinks stay insulated. Overall, Iron Flask is just a better value versus what I'd been buying.
Officially a Hydro Flask to Iron Flask convert!
Iron Flask has several pros going for it versus the Hydro Flask: 1) LIDS- A brand new IF comes with THREE (different types of) lids. HF only comes with one. Since I purchase the 40 oz. bottle, I prefer the straw lid. Don’t have to tilt the bottle. The IF straw lid is superior to any HF lid I have ever received with a bottle or purchased. It doesn’t whistle, I don’t get air bubbles, and it doesn’t leak. (To be fair, I’ve only had a HF straw lid leak if I left water in the mouth piece after sipping, ergo not really a leak. However, due to the design of the IF straw lid mouth piece, water does not get trapped in it, so no “leaks.”) 2) PRICE- IF costs far less than a HF, regardless of size. 3) COLOR OPTIONS- IF’s come in several gorgeous colors or color combinations, while HF makes their colors seasonally. Main reason I jumped the HF ship to IF was that the HF bottle I wanted to replace was no longer available in the same color through HF. That’s when I discovered IF, which ended coming in some awesome color combos that would be custom orders at higher prices if ordered from HF. 4) LOGO- Not only is the IF logo etched into the powder paint job, as opposed to HF’s painted on logo, but it just looks cleaner than the HF logo. Love my new Iron Flask bottle!
Iron vs Hydro: Which is better?
Ironflask or hydroflask: which is better? In my opinion they're the same, only one is cheaper. I've purchased a few hydroflasks and they work great. They keep my drinks ice cold for days at a time. I purchased my Ironflask for two reasons; first, I wanted a pale pink flask which hydro doesn't offer at the moment and second and the most important to me, I prefer the flask design that has the lip so that I can attach a paracord handle. The older version of HF did this and to be honest I'm not a fan of the newer design without the lip. I know it's a minor thing to bring up, but I can be picky about the oddest things. Anyway, since using my ironflask I can say it works just as well as if not better than the HF. I took my bottle to work on Sunday and filled it with ice and water. Went back to work today (Tuesday) and there were still small bits of ice left. With my hydro the ice has usually completely melted by then. Honestly both flasks work great, but if you're not wanting to spend the extra dollars on a hydro, the Ironflask is another great choice, especially if you prefer the lip for the paracord handle.
BETTER THAN HYDROFLASK
Ok yes I sound a little crazy saying these are better than the big brand Hydro Flask, but they are. I got interested in the Iron Flask when my boyfriend got one of his own. I've always loved my Hydro Flask and was about to get my next one but they are just so damn expensive. I had noticed that included with my boyfriend's Iron Flask was not just one lid but 2 additional ones along with 2 straws. Not only can you change the lids but there is no extra charge like Hydro Flasks have! My Hydro Flask leaks for some reason which doesn't make any sense. One big factor that made me feel that the Iron Flask is better than the Hydro is when my boyfriend and I just came home from a one month vacation. I checked my Hydro to find some water at the bottom and next to the water was some mold. EW. Anyway, on the other hand, my man's Iron Flask also had water in it. I looked inside to check and NO MOLD was present. Both of these containers are vacuum sealed and were closed the entire time we were gone for that month. So why did my Hydro which I spent more money on have mold while his huge Iron Flask didn't? I am unsure but that is really what has turned me over to Iron Flask! Save the money and get this amazing product. Don't waste $40 bucks on a 32 oz Hydro when you could have an Iron Flask for cheaper!
Cheaper and works just as good as the Hydro Flask!
My daughter HAD to have a Hydro Flask. So we bought her one. I liked that her ice was still in it for 24 hours. But I did not like the price. So I did some shopping around and found the Iron Flask. Here is my opinion on both… Hydro Flask - keeps water cold for hours. But super expensive and you get ONE lid! To get others you have to buy more lids. The kids hers came with, you have to take the entire lid off to drink from it and water can go all over! You can choose from 13 different colors and 3 sizes. Iron Flask - keeps water cold for hours. Better price and you get THREE lids and TWO straws. And the lids are different so you can pick and choose the one you like and save the others for later. Also, more colors (26 different colors) and more sizes (6) to choose from than the Hydro Flask. Honestly they work the same but one I feel is over priced just for the name and you get one lid. Now to let you know what my family really liked better? Iron Flask! Bought one for my son, I have two different sizes and now the hubby just ordered him two (different sizes). The only one different is my daughter… silly kids.🙄. Recommend - definitely the Iron Flask!
The perfect water bottle
I can't say enough about the quality of the Iron Flask. I bought the 40-oz. model and immediately loved it so much that I soon purchased a second one for my wife. These flasks are made from quality stainless steel and have a beautiful and rugged powder coating that makes it a functional work of art (with many great colors available). The flasks come with three different lids: a stainless steel full-covering one with a collar attachment; a pop-open plastic one you find on insulated coffee mugs, and (my favorite) a pop-up straw with carabiner-style attachment point. The bottle and lids are threaded exceptionally well and screw on and off with ease, which has been a great improvement over the difficult-to-thread Contigo bottle I was happy to replace. I'm also impressed with double-wall insulation this flask has. I have never put hot liquids into it, only using it for water so far, but it keeps water COLD for a very long time. With other bottles, I would fill them at least half-full with ice, which would often be completely melted by the time I had consumed the contents. I did the same with the Iron Flask when I first got it, and after nearly 12 hours, very little of the ice had melted at all! Now I barely put any ice into it, and my water still stays perfectly cold for an entire day. Plus, the flask never sweats. The Iron Flask has helped me greatly increase my daily water intake. And it's a huge value over some of the similarly styled, but much more expensive, options out th... Read More
Comparing, Iron Flask 40 oz. (bubblegum) to the Takeya 32 oz (blush), Hydro Cell 40 oz (white),
and the Hydro Flask (orange).... The ice in his bottle, Iron Flask, the Hydro Cell, and the Hydro Flask, all 40 oz. all have solid ice for 36 hours, so I can refill every other day. This bottle, the Iron Flask in my opinion is the prettiest if that matters to you at all, but it was about $3.00 more for this color. (I can't believe I paid it, but yeah, I did.) What I am finding out with all the bottles is the lid must be kept closed for them to stay cold that long, and the lid that seems the best are the flip up spouts or the flip open sip lid (on the Hydro Flask.) The screw top on the Takeya is must be screwed down tight, or it melts quickly. The flip ups are easier to close and have been left left open less. Hydro Cell is still the definite winner of this comparison. I paid $30.33 on Amazon for the 32 oz Takeya bottle, $22.42 total for the Hydro Cell bottle (had a coupon for 10% off) also on Amazon $28.12 Iron Flask (bubble gum) $30.29 Iron Flask (red) $32.48 Hydro Flask (orange) (half price, on their web site due to the color)
I am highly impressed by the 64 oz iron flask bottle I purchased for several reasons. I bought this bottle to have easier access to cold water at work. I work in a factory in the southeast US. Right now, we have temperatures in the 80's and 90's and I work in a building with no air conditioning outside of offices and break rooms. We have refrigerators stocked with cold water, but it's more of a walk than i'd like when thirsty and trying to work. I had a cheap plastic bottle for water previously, but within about 10 minutes of filling it completely with ice, i had nothing but hot water. That is what led me to buying my iron flask. First, I really liked that it came with three different lids at no extra cost. I picked the lid i liked best and took the bottle to work Friday night. At work, i filled it completely with ice and a little water - fully expecting the ice to melt down while i worked. I said to a coworker that i'd be happy if I still had cold water in 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, i still had ice in my water. I was satisfied. At 6 hours into my shift, I ran out of water but still had plenty of ice. At this point, I was impressed. That was Friday night. It is now Sunday morning, and there is still ice in the bottle. It has been over 30 hours and there is still a lot of ice in the bottle. I am amazed and I have never been happier with any purchase I have ever made. Also, I did not realize it until I received the bottle, but it appears to have a pretty great warranty as we... Read More
Great hydro flask and strong too.
I can't believe I've had this for 7 months now. I'm not a fan of buying the latest and great hydro flask (water bottle), but this one was worth the money. I mainly use it at work. I work in a warehouse unloading trailers and I've dropped it a few times from 4-5ft off the ground and it didn't break. The loop on the lid broke once, so I bought a replacement. I've put hot chocolate in it with the hot drink lid and it stayed hot for more than 13 hours, like burning hot straight out of the machine. I've even put it on the fridge trying to keep my drink inside cold which was at room temp. when I got home from work. This flask is so insulated it didn't make my drink cold, only the flask got cold on the outside and my drink stayed at room temp. on the inside. Great product. My daughter bought herself one after seeing mine and now my wife got one for mother's day this week. I would definitely buy it again.
