A really useful tool can do more than one thing, and this is the philosophy behind Klean Kanteen’s latest release – the Classic Vacuum Insulated bottle. Integrating the original Classic bottle design with a high-performance, double-wall vacuum insulation, the Klean Kanteen Classic Insulated range can keep soups or teas hot for up to 12 hours, or ice water and juices cold for up to 24 hours.
Equipped with a leak-proof stainless loop cap, it can be clipped onto a carabiner for easy attachment to backpacks or belts. An optional sports cap is also available, which is great when you need a quick refreshment hit while jogging in the park in preparation for an upcoming hike or hunt.
The range comes in various colours and sizes, from a small and easily stowable 355ml up to a thirst-quenching 1900ml. Rounded corners make the bottles easy to clean, while the 100 per cent 18/8 food-grade electro-polished stainless steel interior won’t retain or impart flavours, so you can go from drinking a hearty soup to a bush tea to an orange juice without experiencing lingering tastes. The 44mm mouth opening is easy to drink from and is large enough for ice cubes and bottle brushes for thorough cleaning.
Klean Kanteen has put more than a decade into designing and manufacturing healthy alternatives to polycarbonate and lined-aluminium reusable bottles. The company’s commitment to the planet is evident in its ability to create products that successfully replace single-use items and are free of BPA, phthalates, lead and other toxins.
The portable, reuseable and recyclable Klean Kanteen Classic Vacuum Insulated bottle range is available in gunshops and outdoor stores around Australia, for a recommended retail price of $39 for the 355ml model and $85 for the 1900ml model.
