2014 Gear Of The Year: Stanley Adventure Flask
After venturing a few miles in to the woods, we took a break on a flat rock, pulled out our flask and sipped on our favorite beverage. If you can’t sip on an adult beverage out in the woods while enjoying a hike, what is left for you in this world?
A good flask can go a long way, to the fun that will be had when you venture out of the comforts of your home. But not just any flask will do, we need one that’s small, can easily fit in our pocket, and doesn’t spill our precious cargo. After much exploration the Stanley Adventure Flask emerged as the clear winner.
The name Stanley brings back vivid memories of our grandpa carrying around his beat up Stanley thermos. That thing sure did some work. Our grandpa never had a cold cup of coffee. Stanley, being the cool company they are, has now expanded to offer a wide range of food and beverage gear, including the Stanley Adventure Flask. It is made with the same high quality 18/8 single wall stainless steel that won’t rust and a rugged exterior that can take a beating. The twist off cap reveals a small drinking spout that makes walking and taking a sip a breeze. To make sure you don’t lose the cover, it stays attached with a hinged lever on the right hand side. A perfect companion to keep with you on the trail, the Adventure Flask comes in a 5 ounce or 8 ounce version that is sleek enough to fit in your pocket, easy to hold in your hand, and holds nearly a perfect amount of your favorite beverage.
