About Polar Bottle
Based in Colorado since 1994, Polar Bottle – originator of the first reusable, insulated and BPA-free sport water bottle – was acquired by HydraPak in late 2018. Trusted by athletes worldwide, HydraPak’s commitment to performance was a natural fit with Polar Bottle’s culture. All Polar Bottle products are proudly produced in their Longmont, Colorado warehouse, with parts sourced from the U.S.A.
A brisk trail run at dawn through fog rolling in off the Pacific. Pedaling out of the saddle to switchback into the hills above Oakland. Traversing the trails and timeless vistas of the Sierra Crest. Yosemite, the Redwoods, Lake Tahoe, the Lost Coast—we live where nature and opportunity intersect with daily access. In our Northern California home, outdoor inspiration exists at every turn in the trail and along every mile of the ride—driving us further. It drives us to wake early and stay out until the last slivers of sunlight fade in the west—making the most of each day with an uncompromising natural charge. At HydraPak, it drives us to do more, and to go beyond.
