Swedish company Nimbo Bottles produce these great lightweight hot & cold flasks for just over the £20 mark and we love using them to take coffee or hot chocolate out on the trails with us.
They hold roughly two decent mugs worth of liquid and most importantly they fit neatly in the side mesh pockets of our back packs. For colder days outdoors we like to sip through the day to help keep warm, as oppose to stopping for big tea breaks, and we’ve found that two Nimbo Bottles of hot choc or coffee lasts the pair of us just about perfect on a full day out.
Neither of us are particularly skilled at keeping our gear clean and tidy, everything gets dropped and bumped, but these Nimbo Bottles have now stood the test of time with over 1,000 miles of trail done with us to date and they still look great and function perfectly.
We even used them to whack tent pegs into the ground, and although it’s not advisable to do such a thing they do still actually work as flasks…
