GEAR REVIEW: Root7 Corkcicle Canteen

3d794abe-a3cf-4cdb-9071-35bb01a18e83

Whether it’s for a walk in the hills, spending time on the campsite or your daily commute, a thermal flask means you can have warm cuppa or a refreshing cold drink whenever you like. And this stylish container keeps drinks piping hot for 13 hours or ice cold for up to 25.

There's loads of flasks out there, so what makes the Canteen stand out from the crowd? Well, first of all it looks pretty cool – a bit like a retro cocktail shaker. The bevelled edges make it easy to grip and it also features a non-slip bottom to prevent any in-tent accidents. We tried it out on a camping trip earlier this summer, using it for hot tea on a couple of picnics. But it really came into its own when our electric coolbox temporarily went on the blink – we filled the flask with cold milk and it kept it fresh until we got the fridge back working. Always a useful tip if you’re camping without electric hook-up.

The Canteen has a triple-insulated stainless steel casing and comes in multiple sizes and colours and finishes – including the chic brushed steel shown here. Other colours include Merlot, Peach Echo, Pink and Lilac. It’s available in Small (235ml), Medium (473ml) and Large (710ml) – handily the size of a full bottle of wine (just saying!).

Expect to pay £20-£30
