Your heavy tin flask may serve in the city, but when you're making a trek through the mountains, utility is key. This no-frills alternative is made from high-density thermoplastic, providing a simple and durable vessel for your backcountry beverage. The only real struggle: deciding what to fill it with.
Despite owning two metal flasks, I opted to try taking this hip flask out on my 4th of July backpacking trip. The cap could not hold securely, and leaked in my pack before I even got to the trailhead. I poured my whiskey into a more well constructed disposable Athena water bottle, and left this in the trash at the trailhead. You could find better at REI for less than $10, I'm sure. Garbage.1
For the price it does not seem worth it to me. It is a plastic flask and the hook that hooks around your belt buckle or whatnot seems flimsy. Cool colors though and will hold a lot of booze or water.2
I used this once and it felt cheap and didn't seem like it would do well with camping. Not sure how to enhance it, but when I saw how much it cost, I was even less impressed.1
Ok for a quick trip, I've used it several times kayaking and at other outdoorsy events. Wish it was in a color other than red, which is too bright for my personal taste.3
This is a pretty decent flask, and I'm happy to have it around (for adult beverages more than water), but I wouldn't purchase it if it wasn't included in my box. Having said that, it's a very sturdy, light flask, but not a lot of volume to take on a hike or something.3
I thought this was a very cool addition to my Birchbox. I used it at the beach and while camping and it came in very handy. Unfortunately my husky got ahold of it and it was destroyed. It was strong but not dog proof.4
Red plastic flask, i'm not sure you'd be filling this one with alcohol but water on a camping trip or bike ride would be suitable.5
I guess it's nice having a light weight hip flask, but not if it looks and feels like the Bush Smarts Hip Flask. This flask feels super cheap - it seems more like something a person would get from a parting gift from a party than a thing one would purchase from the store. I'd rather take a water bottle, fill it up with my drink of choice, and tie a string around its neck than use this cheap, red flask. Sorry, but I cannot recommend this product.1
Weird but nice item to receive in my box. Good cheap flask for outdoors situations such as hiking or camping.4
As a general rule, you want to avoid plastics for your beverages, especially alcohols that can break down the lining of the container and leach nasty things into your tippling supply. The hip fob is pretty flimsy, too.3
