Stash 750 ML and 1 L Water Bottles / $18.00 – 23.00
Water storage can be a task aboard, especially for those extended dinghy expeditions to wilder shorelines of the Inside Passage. The Stash line of collapsible water bottles from HydraPak offer a modern, simple, and rugged solution that may appeal to both multi-day campers and weekend warriors alike.
The Stash bottles have several advantages over the classic hard water bottle designs. First, it’s worth noting that the plastic Stash bottles are made 100% BPA and PVC free with a thermoplastic polyurethane material that back be frozen of filled with 140-degree Fahrenheit water. Second, the Stash bottles are incredibly light with the 750 ML coming in at 2.5 ounces (1 L is 3.3 ounces), about half the weight of comparable hard water bottles. Next, simply twist the bottle when there’s no more water and store. The bottles collapse down to about a quarter of their original size for easy stowage.
What’s more, the 42-mm mouth screw cap is also compatible with most backcountry filters, meaning the Stash is an on-the-go water purifier if you want it to be. The grip ring on the top and the external volume gauge are pragmatic features that are easy to appreciate. They come in a variety of colors from Malibu (blue) to Sequoia (green).
All told, the Stash 750 ML and 1 L look like handy additions to any adventure ashore, urban or wilderness. They even come with a Beyond Lifetime Warranty for replacement parts. The 750 is $18 while the 1 L is $23.00. Check out hydrapak.com for more details.
