Just realized Moosejaw doesn't have the straw cap you want. My bad.

Am I the only one whose straw cap is leaky?

When the straw is closed?

Yes.
If I leave water in it overnight sometimes I'll come in the morning and it kind of "overflows" a little.

Also, often I'll try to drink from it and get nothing but air, I need to re-position the mouthpiece (or whatever it's called) to get it to work.

I have 2 and don't have issues.

I just noticed the straw lid on Prime for the first time... Not the cheapest at $8.17, but not terrible considering its Achilles heel has always been shipping.

https://www.amazon.com/Hydro-Flask-Mouth-Straw-Black/dp/B00DMIEZEO/

Also, it seems that they redesigned the regular caps. Anyone have both and could compare the two?

ETA: $7.47 here, but I'm getting the feeling it's not the real thing for some reason.

Would the hydro flask work with hot drinks? Looking for something that has a straw so I can drink and drive.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Just when you're done make sure to empty the remaining contents. If it cools in there it'll seal the flask and you'll have a hard time prying it open.

I have the 40oz which was posted on DDMS a while ago. I you're not in a rush to get it, it may be worthwhile waiting around for a good deal. Though not too often, they do drop in price every now and then.

As far as deciding which size you want to get, it's really up to you. It'll depend on what types of hikes etc you want to use it for. It'll also very much depend on how much you're willing to shlep around with you. 40oz is  not small, but if you're walking around with barely anything else then that should be good. You may also want to factor in how often you'll have a chance to refill, and/or how many people will be drinking from it.

So size the only difference between all the different models?

I'd probably go with the smallest one; it would be for hot drinks while driving.
