A classic drinks bottle that is incredibly tough while giving a clear view of contents. The bottle has a wide mouth for easy drinking and filling. The insulated holder allows the bottle to be slipped onto a rucksack belt. But the contents of the bottle cooled far quicker than even the lightest of conventional flasks. And you don’t get a cup to drink from.
Materials: polycarbonate bottle, synthetic carrier
Sizes available: 1000ml
Made in USA
