If you see us in real life or follow us on instagram, you've probably seen me lugging around any combination of my HydroFlask gear. Between our three different water bottles and two food flasks in varying sizes, we always have them with us. The first stainless steel, all-insulated bottle on the market, HydroFlask containers are made with TempShield, a double-wall insulation system that keep cold things ice cold for 24 hours - not kidding - and hot things piping hot for at least 6 and warm for way longer. Seriously, they are INCREDIBLE! I only wish we'd had them when we hiked Katahdin last summer. We always have our HydroFlask bottles and snack containers for iced and hot drinks and for taking warm breakfasts or lunches on the go, which all conveniently fit in our lunch boxes and cup holders. I've stuffed everything into those food containers, and even took them on a recent trip to the Hollywood Bowl. They kept our kombucha cold and our dinner warm, which made for a hell of a concert. They're super tough and scratch resistant, and even after dropping mine seemingly a million times, it has no visible bumps or bruises.
Founded in just 2009 in Bend, Oregon, the company has already earned a ton of product and industry awards, including Best Place to Work. They are a company that truly cares about the quality of their products, and we love them for it. They are constantly innovating to make their products the very best, like the recent changes they made to the handle of their wide mouth lids: they are more flexible and now easier to carry. They even just released their latest - and dare I say greatest? - product yet: the Growler. Their growler pleas from the inside for leak proof protection and a tight seal that keeps in carbonation, so it's perfect for filling up with your favorite brew straight from the tap. Oh yeah, and did we mention that their products come with a lifetime warranty? Yup, all of 'em. Because they are that good.

PACT Clothing Review + $250 Shopping Spree Giveaway!
We met the people at PACT Clothing + Apparel when we visited Expo West this year, and basically immediately fell in love with their company. Because we think they are so rad and we want all you to get a chance to try their awesome apparel for yourselves, we've partnered up to do a $250 GIVEAWAY for one lucky winner, plus a 25% discount for all of our readers! You'll need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the post for that, but before we get there, let's talk a little about why we love this company so much.
First, they have some really friendly, fantastic, funny employees working over there, and it was them who wowed us before we even put the socks on. After chatting with them for awhile we took some socks home and prepped for the next Expo day. Now, if you've been there you know what a hassle it can be to try and visit the same booth on multiple days. There is SO MUCH to see that you're usually on a different floor each day! But we made a concerted effort to get back to the PACT booth because when we got home we had tried on our socks and loved them. They were cute, comfy, and ethically made! We ended up trying on a few more goodies at the show, and got some more stuff shipped to us a few days later. We wanted to try everything they had!
Everything we've worn has been the softest, comfiest, and all of it fits surprisingly well. I tend to be wary of ordering online, but I wear a medium in most stores and the mediums here have fit me perfectly each time. Everything is made from super soft plain or patterned fabrics with amazing attention to detail, like hidden seam stitching and cozy elastic-band coverings. Since we started enjoying what PACT has to offer, both Alex and I have nearly completely replaced our underwear drawers with their comfy garments. They have the everyday basics you need for just about everything - underwear, socks, shirts, tees, tanks, leggings, sleep sets, and pullovers!
Now for the best part: PACT is a business that we're really proud to support. All the clothing is ethically made, and always child labor + sweatshop-free. They partner with companies who treat their employees well and are paid a fair wage, and only employ organic farming practices. PACT clothing is Fair Trade Certified and is always made using organic, non-GMO cotton. By buying clothes from companies like this you are literally voting for change with your dollars, and supporting companies who make the world a better place to live in. Which is why we LOVE them. Oh yeah, and their clothes are literally the softest and comfiest - you're going to love them, too!
You may also have seen us rocking some PACT gear on instagram, which you can also check out below for a snap of what some of their gear looks like on us! I find myself constantly slipping on the leggings (and of course the undies and socks) every time we go on Plant Based Adventures, since they're so comfy and breathable. It's perfect trail gear. And if you're an avid hiker you'll know - there is nothing better at the end of the day than slipping a fresh pair of cotton socks onto your feet!
YOU MADE IT TO THE GIVEAWAY! All you've got to do to win is enter using the widget below. It's THAT easy! We'll randomly pick a winner and announce in about a week. Wanna shop now? Head over to PACT and use the code FETTLEVEGAN25 for 25% off your purchase! (Valid thru 7/15/16)
