More Than An Inventor
More than an inventor, Niki Singlaub is a ‘product guy’ and lives for designing, developing, building, and launching new products into the world. Niki came up with the Hydaway concept while traveling as a freelance product developer. “Trying to stay hydrated in different countries, climates, and elevations, while spending time both in business meetings and in the mountains inspired this water bottle concept. I was looking for a durable, stable, fully-functioning water bottle that collapsed enough to fit in my back pocket. I was really surprised I couldn’t find anything like the Hydaway bottle out there.”
Niki’s expertise stems from almost twenty years in design, development, and management of consumer products in multiple industries. His background in engineering and business has prepared him to problem solve at all stages of the product launch process. On most days you can find Niki in and around the high desert of Bend, Oregon testing gear, brainstorming ideas, and taking his family beyond their comfort level.

ABOUT THE HYDAWAY BOTTLE:
The portable, eco-friendly and reusable Hydaway bottle is made from food-grade silicone with an innovative collapsible design that allows it to pack flat (roughly one-inch thick) to fit in a pocket, purse, duffle bag or backpack. Hydaway is BPA-free, taste-free, odor-free and dishwasher safe.
Available in 21-ounce and 12-ounce sizes, a Hydaway bottle not only travels well, but it’s also good for the environment. In just 60 seconds, U.S. consumers use and throw away 90,000 disposable water bottles. That’s 50 billion water bottles per year – or 30 million tons of plastic waste each year in the U.S. alone.
