Water bottles, water pouches and isothermal flasks: very different products
Choosing the water bottle for your hike, your trek or your sports session needs a little bit of fine-tuning.
Water bottles are very versatile items and come in different styles, materials, sizes and with different mechanisms. There is one for everything. As well as water bottles, other accessories are available to keep you hydrated when active: water pouch and isothermal flask.
We won't dwell on these two other products in this article. However, just a few words to point out the difference.
With regard to water pouches: they slide into your backpack and come with a straw. You can drink directly from the straw without stopping. Their capacity varies from 1 to 3 litres.
Isothermal flasks, on the other hand, have a double stainless steel wall. It’s this double wall that keeps your drinks hot or cold for several hours.
Now you know the difference, you have all the guidance needed to choose the water bottle best suited to your activity!
