Whether you're on the trail or navigating the city, water is an essential—and often overlooked—EDC. If you need a bottle that's tough enough to keep you hydrated no matter where your day takes you, check out the AVEX FreeFlow for your carry.
While the FreeFlow's sturdy stainless steel portion is nothing to scoff at, the bulk of its value as a capable EDC bottle is actually in the lid. When you need to take a sip, you can quickly get your drink on at the push of a button. After your thirst has been thoroughly quenched, releasing the button automatically seals it shut. And it stays locked, so you won't have to worry about accidental button presses causing leaks in your EDC bag either. For all you germaphobes and frequent hydrators out there, the lid features a hygienic spout cover and bolted-on carrying handle, so you'll always have a clean drink on hand.
The bottle is insulated to keep drinks cold for up to 29 hours (or hot for 10) and constructed from stainless steel to withstand the dings and drops of daily use. It's available in either 24oz or 40oz capacities in several colorways (though I'm not sure why you'd pick anything other than the OD green/raw stainless version) for your summer EDC at the link below.
