Edelrid Vacuum Bottle 2014

Edelrid’s Vacuum Bottle is impressive. It comes in three sizes, all with a screw-cup lid and a pourer that you depress to allow liquid out. The cup has a plastic moulding around the lip area, to prevent burns. You have to be a little more careful screwing the cup on, though, as it tends to cross-thread more easily than other similar bottles. Temperature performance was superb, however, losing just 4 deg C in the first 2 hours and only 14 deg C over 8 hours.

Verdict
The Edelrid Vacuum Bottle only missed top spot due to its poor cup.
