There are many different hip flasks sizes in today’s market. Some hip flasks go all the way up to a whopping 64 ounces (that’s 1/2 gallon) while others go all the way down to 1 ounce. When you are presenting a gift flask to a groomsman it is important to keep in mind that something practical may be more important than something that’s not.
