For The Adventurer: Bindle Bottle

For the person in your life who loves a good adventure, the Bindle Bottle is the gift that’ll knock their hiking boots right off. 

Founded locally in Southern California in 2017, this magical bottle was created with one goal in mind: keeping you hydrated and organized, all while cutting down on the consumption of single-use plastics in everyday life. Thanks to their simple solution, everything you need while on-the-go can be kept in one secure place – minimizing touch to keep your stuff sanitized and safe. 

As most everything has been shut down thanks to the ravages of 2020, one of our favorite pastimes remains open: adventuring. Whether you’re on a beach walk, conquering a hike, or chasing after your kids, this bottle is a great way to keep yourself hydrated while keeping your essential items with you at all times. With car-break-ins on the rise in our area, especially in vulnerable areas like beach lots and trailhead parking, the Bindle Bottle will keep your mind at ease knowing you have your valuables on you at all times. 

Each bottle is built with lightweight yet durable stainless steel and features up to 24 oz. of vacuum-insulated liquid storage, so you’re ready to safely enjoy your favorite activities. Their hidden-in-plain-sight waterproof storage compartment lets you slyly stash your extra mask, ID, keys, cash, and for me, snacks! 

Pricing: $34 – $40
