Weighing around a ⅓ pound each (150 grams), the HYDAWAY bottles make weight-sensitive activities like hiking, backpacking, climbing, and travel that much easier. The HYDAWAY comes in two sizes, Large and Small.
• The Large bottle weighs 5.5 ounces or 160 grams (empty weight)
• The Small bottle weighs 4.0 ounces or 110 grams (empty weight)Last updated:
The hinged walls of the HYDAWAY are made from FDA-certified, food-grade silicone – the same type of silicone used in kitchen cookware. Silicone is an inert rubber and post-cured to ensure there is no leaching or taste/odor in the water.
The plastics used in the lid and base are also FDA-certified and BPA-free.
All HYDAWAY materials are used in other everyday products that use food-grade materials and are compliant with the FDA.Last updated:
Several of our beta testers have commented that they enjoyed using HYDAWAY for hot drinks. However, we do not recommend using the HYDAWAY bottles to hold very hot liquids.
The silicone material can easily handle very high (and low) temperatures. However, since the product is designed to fold into a thin disk, the silicone walls are not thick enough in some areas to provide enough insulation for very hot liquids.Last updated:
How does the silicone for the HYDAWAY stand up to the freezer? i.e. Say I wanted to freeze a bottle of water and drink it as the ice melts slowly, would that work with this bottle's construction?
Yes, we have tested this and it works.
The HYDAWAY is made from silicone, which is a material rated for very low and very high temperatures. That said, water expands when frozen, and we recommend you leave the lid off if you plan to place your full HYDAWAY into the freezer.Last updated:
We will be producing our bottles with a trusted manufacturing partner in south China who specializes in silicone products for the kitchen and housewares industry. The raw materials come from global suppliers of silicone and plastic. All materials are FDA-compliant and will receive 3rd-party certification of our claims before being shipped.Last updated:
You will choose your size, color and provide your shipping address through a survey at the end of the campaign.Last updated:
Yes the materials are rated to very high temperatures. We don't recommend that the bottles be placed in a microwave, but being left in a car is not a problem. In fact leaving a spare in the glove box is a great idea when you are on a road trip.Last updated:
We have tested the HYDAWAY with carbonated beverages like soda and it works well, however be careful opening the straw if the soda has been shaken and there is pressure built up. It can squirt out of the straw if the bottle is very full, similar to when you open a can of soda that has been shaken. By filling the HYDAWAY to only 2/3 full, you will minimize these effects.Last updated:
