The flip cap is definitely the way to go with the wide mouth Hydro Flask. It makes it easy to get a drink without having to take the top off. The seal is very tight, so that if the flask rolls over, nothing spills out. The only negative I had was that after trying out the flask and lid with my coffee, I had a really hard time getting the smell of coffee off of the lid. I even tried taking out the seal and using bleach water, but I could still smell the coffee. So if you are going to use your flask for both, I would be tempted to have 2 lids and mark one of them coffee only.

Update #3 - create a carrying loop with old lid.

My only complaint about this lid is that it didn't have a carrying loop, so I made one myself from the lid that came with the Hydro Flask. WARNING - you're going to be pretty much destroying the old lid, so if you have any sentimentality about it, stop here.

1. carefully remove the plastic strap that attaches the lid to the bottle. I did this by pulling sharply upward on the strap, cracking the attachment on the lid. A slight rotation of the strap and another sharp yank and FREEDOM!
2. slip the retainer ring over the neck of the bottle and loop the opposite end through before completely seating the ring. Basically, pass the small circle through the large circle and put it on the bottle as normal. VOILA! a carrying ring. I'll post a picture just in case my instructions aren't explicit enough.

Update #2: 11/27/12
The drinking hole fits a straw (make it an extra long one) perfectly - and keeps it from slipping down inside the flask. Love it!

Update: 11/7/2012
I upgraded my rating of this lid after using it with the 40 oz wide mouth Hydro Flask. I love it. It works well with both hot and cold liquids. Sloshed it around in a backpack for 2 days of training and not one leak or spill. The flow is fine for both hot and cold. The lid snaps closed nicely. Highly recommended for 40oz or smaller.

I got this lid for my 64 oz Hydro Flask Growler and I would say it could use a bit of improvement:

Pros:
allows easy access to sip from your wide mouth Hydro Flask

Cons:
*You have to check very carefully after you screw the lid on to make sure it is seated correctly, otherwise it will leak.
*The flow rate could be higher (I know this is designed for hot liquids, so it's probably a safety issue)
*No handle, loop or strap. This may not be as much of an issue for the smaller flasks, but the growler needs some sort of handle to facilitate easier carrying.

Overall I think the lid is OK, but there are some significant improvements that would make it great.

When you are spending that much money on a water bottle, it really should come with an additional lid. It was hard to drink out of my 40oz bottle with the lid that comes with it, so I bought this lid.

Glad I did.

However, we've had a couple of incidents when the lid had not been clicked into a locked position where all 40oz of fluid has gone all over a purse and over a couch.

I bought this lid because I discovered that I spill water all over the place when I try to drink from my 32oz wide-mouth Hydro Flask. It works GREAT as far as water flow, it was exactly what I needed! I do not typically drink ice-cold water, just cold from the tap, and the flip-top lid seems to not affect the insulating capabilities of the Hydro Flask (therefore, my cold-ish water stays cold-ish even with the flip-top lid.) I gave only four stars because I constantly drop my Hydro Flask and when I inevitably did so this morning, it chipped/dented the crap out of the plastic :( So the lid works great, but if you drop your Hydro Flask, it will damage the lid. Still works perfectly though!

I never had a problem with leaks and I keep it in my backpack where it gets tilted on its side all the time and stays that way. Drinking from it is smooth and easy. The flow is controlled enough where you can drink from it easily without touching your lips to the lid.

The only bad thing about it is that it is not insulated like the rest of the Hydroflask container so it does get condensation build up.

I took a chance on this lid and I'm very pleased that it fits my Lifeline 64 oz. wide mouth bottle! (Different brand bottle) It was very frustrating using the screw top it came with so this will make drinking a lot easier. So far no leaks so let's hope it stays that way.

I have used the Kleen Kanteen bottles for many years and have used their sip lids but have always hated the rotating closure mechanism. This Hydro Flask lid is so much simpler and easier to clean. It also gives a far better liquid flow compared to the Kleen Kanteen one. The fluid will flow out almost as fast as you can drink it. This is not a leak proof lid but it seals very well, again, far better than the Kleen Kanteen lid. Overall this is a great lid unless if you need complete leak proofness. I originally starting using this brand because of the larger bottle sizes available but will probably switch over even my small bottles because of this lid.

I have 2 of these and they both leak. If you like to wear your drinks, this is the lid for you!

All good. As expected and makes the large flask a bit easier to use for young kids.

Should really be included as standard .

Fits on the lifeline vacuumed sealed bottles. Just in case your cover breaks. Good replacement cap. I would recommend this item.
