Interesting, was $2 when I ordered.
Maybe call and ask why it went up?

I ordered one to try it out after reading all the feedback here, although i'm not sure i'll keep it as ideally i'd want something that fits into the coffee holder in my car,

also is it easy to lug this thing around?

mine fits in my cup holder. it's not the easiest to lug around if you're holding it. would be easiest to clip it onto a backpack or belt loop with a carabiner hook or similar
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

thanks, called & done last Friday.. I see SF posted below that shipping is $2 now.. maybe because I called a supervisor & explained how silly it is to pay $6 for shipping for a $6 item.

Please note that the Wide Mouth Straw Lid is not leak proof.

Any thoughts / opinions on this?

It's for herself and I figured Dan would be proud to see that she made a great call on it.  :P

Hydro Flasks are on sale at REI now - the 40oz is $34 +$6 shipping (ship to store is free). Not quite a very amazing deal, but still a bit cheaper than Amazon at the moment.

They also have the straw cap for $5.49.

https://www.rei.com/s/deals?r=brand%3Ahydro-flask&ir=collection%3Adeals&page=1&rank=rank-deals-focus

If anyone happens to be ordering, please PM me - I need a straw cap and we could save on shipping.
