There’s no shortage of insulated water bottles out there that you can use to keep your drinks chilled throughout the duration of your afternoon hike. They’re incredibly helpful. The Klean Kanteen Insulated TKWide does, pretty much, the same things as other vacuum insulated bottles, albeit with seemingly extended insulation abilities that allows it to hold your beverage’s temperatures for impressively longer periods.
How much longer? According to the outfit, it can keep your coffee or tea hot for up to 17 hours, so you can be sipping on the same warm latte you made in the morning while heading home from work in the early evening. For cold drinks, it supposedly retains cold temperatures up to 63 hours. Yes, that’s almost three days, which is downright ridiculous for a beverage bottle, since you’ll probably finish the contents way before you even use up half of that retention period.
The Klean Kanteen Insulated TKWide’s ridiculous insulation makes it the perfect bottle for folks who want to nurse their drinks while still enjoying them at optimal temperatures. Granted, they won’t retain the exact same temperatures that whole time, but if your coffee can still be reasonably hot after six hours of ignoring it (17 hours is the promised limit, after all), that’s a heck of a convenience you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere, not to mention the potential ice retention you can enjoy with this thing. Hey, lots of drinks just taste better when they’re ice cold.
It comes with either a Café Cap, a Twist Cap, or a Chug Cap, each of which comes with its own unique features and elements. Of course, the caps are interchangeable, so you can order yours with a Café Cap, then use a Twist Cap from another bottle instead if you prefer that for the day. At any rate, all caps are fully leak-proof, so you can accidentally stash the bottle upside down in your bag without any trouble, all while coming with loops, so you can easily hold the bottle using the cap. All of them also use the same threading that’s designed to reinforce the bottle’s thermal performance.
The Klean Kanteen Insulated TKWide comes in a durable 18/8 food-grade stainless steel construction, so this should shrug off most of the knocks and bumps it’s bound to encounter at home, at work, and in the outdoors, along with a colorful powder-coated finish that, the outfit claims, is chip-resistant, so it will retain its colors for a long time. And yes, they have a nice selection of vibrant colors. Oh yeah, you can also throw it in the dishwasher, so you don’t have to manually clean this thing up, regardless of what drinks you keep in it.
It’s available in multiple sizes, including the 12oz, 16oz, and 20oz sizes that are most popular with contemporary travel bottles. For those who prefer even more hydration throughout the day, they also offer it in larger 32oz and 64oz sizes, which will likely be ideal for camping and other activities that will see you spend extended time out of the house.
The Klean Kanteen Insulated TKWide is available now, priced starting at $27.95.
