HYDAWAY Collapsible Water Bottle – A Quick Review

If you’re like me, you like to stay hydrated when you travel.

Convenience typically comes in the form of picking up a water bottle from your hotel or at the airport, but those with an eco-conscience will find the ideal travel companion in the HYDAWAY collapsible water bottle.

It allows you to re-use it after washing and filling with water, but then can be shrunken down into a flat container so as to not use up too much space in your bag.

That’s my biggest concern with traveling with a physical water bottle that can be used over again.

Sometimes, there is no space in my bag to store it when it’s not in use, and with airlines cracking down on the size of carry-on bags, I have to be judicious with that space.

I love how this water bottle easily folds down with one flick of the wrist, and I can slide it into the side pocket of my bag.

There was a lot of thought put into the materials used for this water bottle, which is composed of food-grade silicone and plastic, which is BPA-free.

The material does not leave an after taste on the liquid, and it is dishwasher-safe for cleaning. The bottle features a convenient handle that can be clasped onto the side of a backpack or briefcase, and it comes in a variety of colors.

It is perfect for working out on the road or for tagging along to the office. It retails on the HYDAWAY website for around $20, which depends on the size you order (12oz or 21 oz).

Families will appreciate that there are smaller bottles for kids, and there are also sets of bottles that are available at a discount.

This is a great gift for those looking to do their small part for the planet when traveling.
