Great design and performance - still going strong

Why buy a stainless steel flask?
Stainless steel flask are more compact and lightweight than their glass equivalents.
Why buy this model?
For the well-designed pourer/stopper and because it keeps the contents hot or cold for much longer than more basic models.
Is it easy to carry?
Yes. There are silicon-type bands and the top and base for grip. The cylinder is narrow enough to grasp comfortably. The flask fits easily and securely into a Lifeventure water bottle pouch and the exernal mesh pockets of a PacSafe VentureSafe 300.
Why is it a good flask for hot drinks?
The flask contains enough hot liquid (0.5 litres) to keep you warm on a cold day of hillwalking or hiking, without the weight of the filled container becoming a distraction.
Why is it a good flask for cold drinks?
It contains enough liquid to keep be worth carrying in the heat of summer (the same amount as a 500 ml carbonated drink bottle), yet is not so bulky or heavy that the filled flask becomes a distraction. As the filling aperture is much wider than a normal soft drink bottle, the flask can easily be refilled from taps, public water fountains, or other bottles. Better yet - the aperture is wide enough that ice cubes can be added.
I have now had this flask for two years. It still performs just as well as when I first purchased it. The rubber and silicone elements are still in excellent condition and the thermal qualities just as good as when originally purchased.
