If you are a frequent Benosh reader, you probably know that I have a soft spot for water bottles, insulated ones especially. And my pick of the litter for insulated water bottles comes straight from Hydro Flask, the masters of vacuum seal technology.
Right in time for summer, the great people at Hydro Flask sent their amazing 17 oz stainless steel Food Flask, which is definitely not a water bottle but uses their vacuum technology to keep hot things hot or cold for as long as three hours. This durable container with its lifetime warranty is perfect for filling with hot soup or another meal and toting with you no matter the outside conditions.
With the weather turning cool my thoughts have finally wandered to warmer food like soup and chili, and I’ve had the opportunity to get to know the Food Flask a lot better. The double walled construction keeps whatever you put inside far warmer than I can remember my old Thermos ever managing as a kid, and unlike vacuum sealed coffee carafe’s, the Food Flask can act as storage container and a bowl at the same time, keeping it simple. Just pack a spoon and you’re ready to go!
Our Tahoe Blue Flood retails for $26 on Hydro Flask’s website, which is a fair price for keeping your meal hot this winter. Whether you’re eating your lunch at work on the trail, if it’s soup, chili, or something else you can fit in this class, I’d strongly suggest picking one up. You be glad you did!
