    Why only cold temps? Aren’t they equally good for hot beverages?
    Good find OP

      Boiling water is apparently not good for the plastics used in the lid. But mine works well for hot as well. I have had it for over five years and use it mostly for cold water though. I drop a few ice cubes into it on the morning and they will last all day. Hot drinks will only stay hot for a few hours. Bought another two when they were last on special earlier this year.

      If you wanted to hold hot drinks, there are better flasks for this.

      We love ours (not this particular model) for coffees.

      Much better than the thermos cups.

    Excellent product. Only thing is the rubber grip comes loose after time.

    •  

      You should be able to slide it back on again, but yes, if you take it off regularly for cleaning, it does get a bit too loose to keep it on.

      •  

        Yeah, very minor

  •  

    $40 at Spotlight. Good find OP

  •  

    Been this price at Big W for a while although I can't find it on their website, maybe just an in-store deal or out of stock?

  •  

    I was waiting for this deal as I missed it last time. Thanks op

    This leaks

    •  

      No it doesn't unless it's defective. Check that the blue seal in the lid is in place.

        • +4 votes

          Firstly, it's not designed for hot liquids. Secondly, any drink/container that is purchased with the intent of airtight liquids should be tested for defects before using. But as Dacs said, it's likely that the blue seal is not in place correctly. It can move out of place when washing. Either that, or it is defective. I've got three of these bottles and they are all great.

          If you want something for coffee, I would suggest this. I have two of them and they are great for travelling. I used to throw it in my bag and drink it on the bus to work in winter time, Never leaks, but you need to wash it thoroughly when it's used for coffee. A little detergent in the mouthpiece and letting it all wash through the lid tends to work best for me. Or you can soak it every so often in boiling hot water and detergent while it is submerged in a bowl - that will clean it out really well. Just be mindful that if you pull it apart to give it a deep clean, you need to put it back together again the right way, otherwise it'll leak. Other than that, it's a brilliant travel mug,

            @KangaDrew: Thanks for the tip, the thermos was only a month old.

            I wouldn't be able to use that as I need to leave it in my bag

              @Spennyrich: I've got both three of the bottles in the OP's post as well as two of the travel mugs I linked in my above comment and I regularly put them in my bags. The water bottles go in my gym bag and the travel mug in my backpack, and I've never had a leak after about 5 years.

              •  

                @KangaDrew: Oh nice I assumed it had a different lid type. I'll look into it.

            • +2 votes

              @Spennyrich: we have had 3 of this style (this is the newer model) thermos flask

              50% off too currently. I might post this as my first bargain.

              Anyway, if you don't want the handle these are great. They seal tight and there's a small clip that goes over the opening button to secure it. Hasn't leaked for us in ~5 years of using them. Found them in the USA when we do a road trip and it was perfect. Easy to use with one hand. Take it in my laptop back pack for work. Only time there's a spill is usually my fault (overfilling and not mopping up the spills is the usual culprit).

              Would highly recommend these.

    Bought this the last time it came up. The catch opens too easily and soaked my backpack.

    •  

      Locking ring for a reason :(

      •  

        I had that on.

        •  

          ouch

        •  

          Sorry to hear. That's bloody annoying and will say unlucky as you need the locking ring AND button to be pushed to open for lid to open.

          The lid has never popped open for me (touch wood).

          The newer model hot/cold thermos drink bottle has a study plastic lock that pops into place. So a little more secure.

          •  

            @PleasureMachine: Yeah the ring popped off after being in my backpack and once that was off the lid opened easily.

            I never really trusted it after that.

            •  

              @gadgetguy: Yeah I can understand the loss in trust but again really unlucky to have the ring pop off and the button pushed to allow to lid to open.

    Bought at $17 a month or so ago. I put half boiling half tepid water and it works fine. A good overall, bottle. Very good for commuters as it fits into a drink space in the car and is easy to grab and put down.

    Thermo insulated bottles for cold water while outdoors and exercising are a game changer, improved my water intake dramatically!

    I have actually owned a few of these, I somehow have ended up with a bit of a water bottle collection on a quest to find the perfect bottle.

    At this price these are okay, but, I find they don't actually keep the water that cold for long, I have also broken 2 lids and find the cap to drink out of is very basic. The 500ml is a bit too small for what I need to.

    If you were looking for just a metal water bottle that will slightly chill water, this will be fine at $15.

    However, if you want one that will truly stay cold for 8 hours+ then I would recommend this https://www.amazon.com.au/Contigo-AUTOSEAL-Chill-Stainless-B... (I picked it up for around $25, but I think $30 is worth it) it is also slightly bigger and much easier to drink out of.

    If you don't care about water staying cold then I would recommend this: https://www.mountaindesigns.com/equipment/hydration/water-bo... - it has the best sports cap I have used and allows you to drink it much faster.

    I use the Contigo one for gym and at night time and the klean kanteen throughout the day to up my water intake - these are pretty much the only bottles I use all day every day out of the 10 or so I own.

    •  

      so pay $25 + shipping for the mountain design bottle instead of buying this thermos for $14.95 with free shipping.

      hmmmmmm, you my friend are a bargaining genius. i love you.

        I never said it was cheaper, just a better alternative that is likely to last you much longer and perform better.

        I have owned 4 of the thermos ones (got 3 on a ozb deal) and in that same 2-3 year period I have only owned 1 of the Klean Kanteen bottles (which cost me $20 on ebay).

        From the 4 thermos I have owned, 2 of them the lids broke, 3 of them lost the rubber sleeves, 1 of them I have only used a few times (it still has the sticker on) but even that the logo is basically gone, see for yourself: https://imgur.com/Ppf6J8j (these are the 2 that didn't end up dead and buried) and that klean kanteen one has been with me on multiple backpacking trips and has even flown out of my bag when driving my bike and still survived.

        They are decent enough for me to have owned 4 and as I said, for this price it might be worth it, but if you are looking for something more durable or with a better performance I would recommend spending a bit more.

    Highly recommended! I've had several of these over the years used 24/7.

    Pros:

    • The flip lid keeps the drinking spout clean.
    • Has a locking ring to prevent accidental opens.
    • Easy to pop open and shut with one hand (including locking ring).
    • Insulation is good. Water stays cool even if left in a hot car for a long time.
    • Stainless steel body is strong and does not give any taste to the water.
    • Fits into most standard cup holders.
    • Wide drinking spout allows you to glug water quickly

    Cons:

    • The rubber grip stretches and comes loose.
    • After one too many drops the lid eventually breaks but spare lids can be bought from Thermos.

      Couldn't agree more with this! I've got three of these bottles. One for the car, two for the gym. They are perfect for driving as they easily fit in the drink bottle holder (I put mine in the door where it's out of the way) and are very easy to pop the top, take a swig and put it back down without losing much concentration. And if you pop a few ice cubes inside, the liquid will stay colder for longer.

    Great one. Thanks OP. Just bought.
