Hydro Flask's durability meets classic drinking glass
Summary : We love the tapered lip. It truly feels like a traditional pint glass. The stainless steel interior and lip look great and are strong enough to withstand the inevitable abuse that will be thrown at it.
It’s no secret that we like to enjoy a cold drink or cocktail around the campfire at the end of a long day. Over the years, through trial and error, we have become somewhat of experts at enjoying libations at a campsite. We know, we have a tough job but someone has to do it. From these experiences, we have come to the conclusion that beer just tastes better out of a pint glass. The feel, the aroma you get, it all comes together and forms this sensory experience. Enter the Hydro Flask True Pint. It claims to combine their cooling technology with the feel of a traditional pint glass. We enjoyed a few cold beers out of it, for “testing” purposes, and here is what we found.
Appearance: We love the look and feel of traditional 16oz pints, don’t get us wrong, but the True Pint has them beat with its feel, durability, and overall look. The stainless steel interior and lip look great and are strong enough to withstand the inevitable abuse that will be thrown at it. The best part is it’s shaped like a traditional pint glass. No more drinking beer from a flimsy plastic cup.
Functionality: The True Pint claims to take the properties we love from a pint glass and combine them with Hydro Flask technology. We love the tapered lip. It truly feels like a traditional pint glass. Hydro Flask included an ingenious ledge on the interior of the pint so you can stack multiple pints without the unruly task of getting them apart. Speaking of the interior, its made of 18/8 stainless steel. So those numbers may not mean much to you but with 18/8 grade stainless you won’t have a “funny” tasting beer and no metallic smell that you get with other metal containers. The double wall insulation and exterior coating keeps the pint from sweating in the hot summer sun.
Durability: Hydro Flask’s durability is well known and the True Pint is no different. Apart from running it over with your vehicle, you really can’t break, bend, or puncture it. No longer will you worry about breaking traditional pint glasses when you travel. The double wall vacuum insulation is rock solid and the pint has a lifetime warranty. You can’t beat that.
Value: At $21.99 the Hydro Flask True Pint is comparable with other growlers and similar products. When you factor in the excellent design, the feel of a traditional pint, and a lifetime warranty, this pint becomes even more attractive. For less than $25 you are able to have cold beer, out of a great feeling pint, for the rest of your life. Or until you get sick of drinking ice cold beer. We won’t hold our breath.
