One of the easiest ways to tell the difference between a real Hydro Flask and a fake one is by looking at the bottom of the bottle.
The three on the left here are real Hydro Flasks which I purchased directly from the website – See real Hydro Flasks at HydroFlask.com
These other ones I got for cheap on eBay. The reason that I know they’re fake is that Hydro Flask never actually made these colors in this size.
When I contacted the seller about them potentially being fake I got a full refund straight away and they didn’t even say anything to me. I never heard from them again.
I know these two are fake and I know these three are real.
One of the easiest ways you can tell real from fake is by looking at the bottom so let’s tip them over and let’s go ahead and have a look at the bottom of these bottles.
You can see the difference between the two. On the left here we’ve got the real Hydro Flask and on the right here we’ve got the fake.
As you can see the words is the major difference the real Hydro Flask has the words printed in both upper and lower case with the dots in between the different words. Whereas on the fake one it’s just got it itched in or engraved in.
You can definitely feel the bumps and you can see the stainless steel underneath
The real one has a lot more writing it has made in China it’s got a product number it says HydroFlask.com, it also says temp shield insulation whereas the fake one just says designed in Bend Oregon, has the size as well as 18/8 stainless steel.
The real one’s got the size but it doesn’t actually say 18/8 stainless steel.
Let’s have a look at this one here that one doesn’t say it either and then if we have a look at this one then that doesn’t say it doesn’t have anything about the stainless steel on there maybe the older Hydro Flasks did say something about stainless steel on the bottom but the new ones definitely don’t.
This one I got about a week ago, these ones I purchased a couple of months ago and so as you can see the difference in the bottom is quite significant.
You can also see more of an indent here before the words compared to this one so that could be another way to tell whether yours is real or fake.
