The new bottle design saves weight in a few ways. The vacuum-insulated, stainless steel walls are thinner without compromising durability. Additionally, it shaves off a few grams from the Honeycomb cap, perforated flex strap, and the aluminum pivots used to anchor it.

The brand’s double-wall vacuum insulation and pro-grade stainless steel are designed to maintain drink temperatures for hours without altering the taste. Since then, Hydro Flask has expanded its product range to include multiple bottles, food flasks, and soft-sided, insulated coolers.
Scott Jurek on the Trail Series Bottles, Trails, and Family Trips
I’m kind of a lightweight geek, so the improvements made on cutting the weight while still having the same insulating capabilities are huge for me. I’m also into the clean, modern design without veering too far from a classic look and feel that Hydro Flask is known for, so I love how the new Trail line was able to blend the two.
You’re known for several running accomplishments. How does a lightweight, insulated bottle fit into your outdoor and everyday life?
Having an insulated bottle that is lighter in weight makes it easy for me to grab it for more outings and uses. To me, this is critical in simplifying what I bring — and knowing I won’t be sacrificing performance and ease of movement out in the woods, desert, or mountains.
We biked around Japan for a month this summer, and these bottles saved us on those 90-degree days with 90% humidity (cold fluids) and the 45-degree days in rainy mountain passes (warm fluids).
With family hikes, it seems like I sacrifice my intake for the kiddos (toddlers get thirsty), so I like to make sure we have 20-60 ounces on hand depending on the weather. Some of that is in their own bottles. Thankfully they are starting to carry their own mini backpacks and kid Hydro Flasks.
On our Japan bike trip, the kids were attached to their own Hydro Flask bottles, so we had to carry a little extra weight, and us adults used our Trail bottles. With kids, you have to keep them happy, psyched, and hydrated. Sometimes, going uber-ultralight isn’t the best for clan morale! Also, it’s a little easier to carry extra weight via bike.
I had another big adventure run (like the Appalachian Trail) planned for this summer, but it has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay tuned, and hopefully all goes well for later this year — or most likely 2021.
You’ve listed trail maintenance as a hobby. Tell us more about that “hobby” and whether you’ve taken it beyond your most widely used trails.
步道维护是我得到了很多的满意度。就像看到简单的手工劳动的进步没有什么 - 和它是一个很好的锻炼呢！
When I run, hike on stretches of trail I’ve built or maintained, it’s hard to describe the feeling. I somehow feel more connected to the land and trail, and being part of connecting webs of trails that bring people and wild places into a closer connection. We need this more than ever today.
I’ve mainly stuck closer to home for trail maintenance, but I’m looking forward to doing extended wilderness trail work parties for long weekends or weeklong outings on our national scenic trails like CDT, AT, PCT, and Colorado Trail with the kids when they are older.
