Why we chose the Dometic Thermo Bottle 660: Stainless steel construction, BPA free, sleek design
Dometic produce a whole host of different products but are perhaps most famous for being part of the same company that, believe it or not, created the world’s first refrigerator. The Dometic Thermo range is similarly designed to keep things cool, albeit in a slightly more portable way. It also has the added bonus of working with hot liquids too.
It’s a versatile range made with outdoor adventuring in mind, with a robust stainless-steel construction and compact nature making it suited to the demands of life on the trail.
The Dometic Thermo insulated flask comes with three nature-inspired colour options: ore, moss and mango. It fits in most standard cupholders and is dishwasher safe and BPA free. In case you didn’t know, BPA is a synthetic compound used in the linings of some food and drink containers and it has links to a whole host of health concerns for humans and animals alike. In other words, there are no harmful chemicals here.
The bottle is built with double-wall insulation which keeps your hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours, and your cold drinks cold for 24 hours. With a capacity of 660ml, we found it was just the right size for a good-length day hike in winter. With a height of 259mm and a width and depth of 73mm, we found it’ll handily fit inside or on the side of your backpack. The seal of the bottle is additionally leak-proof and has a large opening for easy refilling.
You can also get a corresponding Dometic Thermo cup as well, by the way. This has a capacity of 500ml, a height of 128mm, and a width and depth of 88.50mm. We found it to be just about the right size for campfire beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. The cup also has a stackable design for ease of storage, a rounded edge for effortless drinking, and it’s nice and light so won’t be too much of a burden in your backpack.
The Dometic bottle and cup are made from a high-quality stainless steel. This makes for easy cleaning, a longer shelf-life, as well as increased levels of hygiene. Furthermore, the type of stainless steel used here is scratch resistant and very tough, making it suitable for messier, off-the-road adventures too.
