Precidio Design has Multi Flask, a multi-bottle-six-function system. Multi Flask wants to be your one carryall for all solutions system they call, the “Total Hydration System,” and in most ways, it is.
We received a box of the updated version with six bottle variations in one box. For example, you should be able to carry a regular drink of water in the glass bottle, with its double-wall insulation. If you want to make designer water you add in a fruit infuser insert. There is also a strain basket that is a tea infuser, allowing you to soak in tea leaves, versus using a bag. And, you can have your drink hot or cold; plus, you can also create a beverage from powder.
The cap has two types as well: a sip lid for clear liquids and a spout lid and agitator, which should allow you to drink thicker, smoothie-type beverages. It is nice that you can go hot or cold and the system is dishwasher safe—always a plus. And there are no chemicals such as BPA or Phthalate to worry about.
The Multi Flask retails for about $39.99. This would make a great gift for the Fitness spouse, the Exercise or Yoga guru in your family, or for yourself to take drinks to work (we are so over the vending machine and its high prices).
Since it comes with a handy mesh bag, we are giving it 5-stars because it is easier to keep all the parts together. Otherwise they’d rattle around in the drawer if you can find everything.

“Hydration is important because the body is comprised mostly of water, and the proper balance between water and electrolytes in our bodies really determines how most of our systems function, including nerves and muscles,” says Larry Kenney, PhD, a professor of physiology and kinesiology at Penn State.

According to HealthCorps: “Avoid carbonated drinks, since they can create unpleasant gas and result in stomach cramps. Don’t justify caloric drinks just because you exercised–you probably don’t need the extra calories unless you are trying to gain weight. If you prefer not to drink during your workout, make sure you finish an 8-to-16-ounce bottle once you wrap up your fitness routine.”
