My office is in the basement of our home. In the summer it’s great because it’s the coolest location in the house. But in the winter, it’s also the coldest place in the house.
When I’ve got my groove on and am super focused with my head down, working for several hours at a stretch, I’ve discovered it’s really nice not to break that flow by going aaaaaall the way upstairs to refill my teacup.
What I now do instead is fill up my GSI Glacier Stainless Bottle and tuck in to some solid work, refreshing my hot tea without having to get up and go aaaaaall the way upstairs. (Don’t worry, I do get up to stretch on a regular basis.)
Maybe you’ve got a warmer work space than I do. In that case, this bottle will serve you well if you’ve got plans that require a warm beverage.
Skiing? Hiking? Camping? Taking a road trip to the mountains? Headed to the Superbowl?
Whatever it is that you’re up to, temps in most of North America have been pretty cold. You need something or other to keep you warm!
Whether it’s hot chocolate, coffee or perhaps soup, the GSI Glacier Stainless Vacuum Bottle is an excellent go-to carrier for your beverages.
This is the lid askew to show how far down it screws into the bottle to prevent spillage.
The most outstanding feature of this bottle is that the lid screws in super tight so you won’t have to worry about spillage. If you’re driving with it in the car, for example, you can toss it onto a seat without worrying about the contents leaking out.
The top, as with most thermoses, doubles as a cup. Of course I don’t actually use it in my office like this, but this is what it would look like if I did. 🙂
It’s also got a no-slip bottom so it won’t scooch off your desk if that’s where you happen to be using it.
When I return to Bhutan this fall to do the Snowman Trek, I’m seriously considering making room for this. I’d LOVE to be able to arrive at a freezing cold pass (think: 18,000 feet) and break this out for some warmth (especially if it’s liquid chocolate!).
You can buy the GSI Stainless Vacuum Bottle on the GSI website for about $35 or at your favorite outdoor store. It comes in five colors including red, green, blue, white-ish and orange-ish.
Disclosure: GSI provided this bottle for me to review. Regardless, everything I have said in the post reflects my honest opinions.
