  1. What an amazing list Ryan. Perfect for the ultrarunners and stage racers. The 1st I have seen of the stainless steel drinking straws. What a great idea. The paper ones just don’t cut it. And of course with the stainless it is not a one time use thing! 🙂


    1. Thanks Carl! The stainless steel straws are awesome. Using those straws to replace single use straws and using a Hydro flask to replace single use plastic bottles will make a significant difference in plastic waste! Happy holidays 🙂
