Lifeventure TiV Vacuum Flask 2014

This black anodised torpedo design, which comes in four sizes, is pretty cool! There is a screw-cup lid with the contents sealed by an additional plastic pourer that you depress to allow liquid to flow out. This works very well, although it would be better if there was a plastic covering around the lip of the cup too. The temperature regulation was very impressive, though, losing just 6 deg C in the first 2 hours and only 17 deg C over the 8 hour test period.

Capacity tested 1000ml
Sizes available 1000ml, 700ml, 500ml, 300ml
Dimensions 8.5x32.5cm
Weight 550g 

The Lifeventure TiV Vacuum Flask’s metal lip is the main drawback.
