Hydro Flask and Fifty Fifty are two vacuum insulated water bottles quite popular on the market right now. If you are going outside, either for running or biking, you definitely should have a vacuum insulated water bottle that can keep your drink cold and fresh even after hours of activity. Hydro Flask and Fifty Fifty are designed for that purpose. So, which is the better product between these two water bottles? Which is the one that can keep hot coffee hot and cold beer cold longest? Let’s see the comparisons below.
As you can see, Hydro Flask and Fifty Fifty actually have similar bottles, but they are a little bit differently from each other. Hydro Flask features the double-wall vacuum insulated TempShield technology on the food-grade stainless steel and non-toxic BPA-free plastic constructions. The outside is given a proprietary powder coat that makes the bottle resistant to slipping, allowing you to take it easily wherever you go. It is coming with the distinctive Flex Cap, but it features the 2.19” Wide Mouth opening that is compatible with Wide Mouth Flex Cap, Hydro Flask Straw Lid, and Hydro Flip. The upward curve of the handle loop makes it more stable when carried around, and the stainless steel joints are durable.
Fifty Fifty also features a stainless steel construction with the double-wall technology to prevent condensation and heat transfer. Since the walls are made of stainless steel, they will not alter the drink, and they also will not retain any odor or taste. However, the cap is held by a plastic bit that can crack as the time goes.
Fifty Fifty has very limited color choices. There are only black, blue, red, olive, and stainless steel color options. On the other hand, Hydro Flask provides a lot more variety with various color gradients, such as black, cobalt, forest, graphite, lava, plum, and raspberry.
Hydro Flask claims to be able to keep a hot beverage for up to 6 hours and a cold drink for up to 24 hours. On the other hand, Fifty Fifty says that it can keep both cold drink and hot drink for over 12 hours. You can be sure that these numbers are mainly for ad purposes because they actually have similar performance. They both can keep a cold drink with minimal temperature change for nearly a day. The drink can stay cold for two days, although the temperature change will become pretty significant already on the second day. A hot drink can be kept with minimal temperature change for 6 – 12 hours.
In the end, we recommend you to choose Hydro Flask. Even though the two products have similar performance, Hydro Flask has a better build quality and more color choices.
