We can not find any information on Hydro Flask website or product decoration that where is hydro flask made, but it is clearly to know all hydro flask water bottles are Made in China by its texts information on bottle bottom indicated the water bottle is designed in Bend, OR, Made in China.

Where is Hdyro Flask Made, MADE IN CHINA

The answer is “NO” Hydro Flask Botle made in USA, It’s none of stainless steel insulated water bottle made in USA, because of cost and efficiency issue, also the environment protection regulation in USA is very strict, it’s well known that stainless steel water bottle is reusable & eco-friendly & environment friendly, but its manufacturing process is not that environment friendly, such as electrolysis, copper coating, polishing, painting etc., all these manufacturing processes require enough environment protection to manage no pollution for the planet.

Considering these challenges, it’s impossible to have a stainless steel water bottle made in USA.

All of hydro flask water bottles are made from high quality stainless steel 18-8 with double wall vacuum insulation to keep ice cold 24 hours up without condensation, but it’s what other stainless steel water bottles can do the same thing, would you be happy to pay for so expensive price only because it is Hydro Flask®?

Yes, you probably are willing to pay for it, when you drinking with a hydro flask water bottle, you enjoy the ice cold water, worry free toxic issue, also get product and lifetime warranty from Hydro Flask.

Back to question of why hydro flask so expensive, it’s mainly because of the company who own the brand want to conduct its marketing strategy to maintain the brand symbol in a high end market, acquire good profit margin, manage distribution chain, and a long term development. All these elements together will make it so expensive in the market that you can buy a water bottle from Hydro Flask.
