I have another Hydro flask with a straw lid and it works great for cold drinks and doesn’t leak even when upside down. I was so sold on Hydro flask I bought this one for my morning coffee and other hot drinks as it comes with that type of flip top lid for hot drinks and is the perfect size for morning coffee.
It does a great job in keeping my drinks hot for several hours, however like other reviewers I feel this lid needs serious reworking. Every time I drink coffee I get a brown nose from the condensation on the flip top, and it leaks terribly, not just from the top but the seal does not seem to be quite right so liquid drips down the sides even when the lid is screwed on tight.
Not sure how this is happening. I hand wash the bottom and always put the tops in the top rack dishwasher every few days. This never affected the seal on my straw top lid.See The galleries
