Hydro Flask Soft Cooler Backpack

Hydro Flask bottles and tumblers are ubiquitous among the workout crowd and for VSCO girls, but their soft cooler pack adds a dimension of functionality that anyone will love.

Our friend Steve Makowski has used the Hydro Flask 22L soft cooler pack for adventures across the Eastern Sierras. He loves how it’s lightweight and durable, compared to other coolers, and he uses it to keep food and drink warm just as often as he does to keep things cool.

He’s found the best way to coax his daughter out for winter hikes is a promise of hot chocolate at the end of the trail, and the Hydro Flask pack ensures that their hot lunch and drinks stay that way despite the cold weather.

The dry storage top pocket is a great place to keep keys, wallet, and a phone when hiking and exploring. With this soft pack you can truly go hands-free and know that no water will get in or out of your pack.
