Red Insulated Drinks Bottle | Review

An excellent flask that will keep liquids either hot or cold throughout the day

Why We Chose The Red Insulated Drinks Bottle: Transportable, eco-friendly, keeps your drink at the perfect temperature.

We’ve all done it at some point, haven’t we? Bought a bottle of water in a shop, right before going off on a big walk. We’ve then used that bottle once and then, rather depressingly, chucked it away without a second thought. Thankfully, in 2019, it seems like people are finally waking up to just how severe society’s reliance on plastics is and how damaging the knock on consequences can be. This has led to a rise, especially in the weekend warrior market, of consumers considering more eco-friendly drinking storage solutions.

With its incredibly bold claim of ‘24 hours cold, 12 hours hot’, we reckon outdoor enthusiasts will love what the Red Original Insulated Drinks Bottle brings to the table. Anyone, for example, who loves stopping for a hot mid-afternoon soup / coffee during long winter walks will love this product. Likewise, anyone who looks out of a window during a summer heatwave and thinks “Yeah. I really want to be out in that” will be extremely grateful of the item’s ability to keep beverages contained within it cool and refreshing. Chilled cup of wine anyone?

“With its incredibly bold claim of ‘24 hours cold, 12 hours hot’… outdoor enthusiasts will love what the Red Original Insulated Drinks Bottle brings to the table”

Weighing just 400g with a canteen gap, or 380g with a sports cap, this lightweight bottle is highly transportable. It’s large 750ml capacity means it’s more than big enough to carry three cups of coffee or, I don’t know, a whole bottle of wine (look, we like wine). The bottle is also easily attached to your other kit via a carabiner, something that’ll hopefully make the annoying habit of misplacing your bottle a thing of the past. The double wall construction here creates a vacuum between the outside environment and the inside liquid, which is how temperatures are able to stay at a desired level for longer.

The bottle is made from high quality, super insulated marine grade stainless steel. This material, as well as looking like the material that every single auntie in history plumps for when redoing their kitchen, is good because it won’t corrode like other metal drink bottles. Obviously, this is a win because it greatly extends the life of the product – meaning, yes, you can wait much longer before buying a new bottle. When you consider that the product costs £25 and a new bottle of Evian can be priced anywhere between £1 and £2, the long-term investment in something like a Red Original Insulated Drinks Bottle really starts to make sense from a fiscal point of view as well as an environmental one.

Tester’s Verdict

Jack Clayton, Mpora Editor

“Really good insulated drinks bottles never fail to amaze me. No matter how many times I have the technology explained to me at trade shows, and read about things like “double wall” construction and “vacuum” spaces, I’ll still react like an excitable child the first time I put these things to the test and discover that they actually work.

“The first thing I did when I got my hands on this one was fill it with hot water, via the freshly boiled office kettle, and leave it until just before home time (a period of about nine hours).

“As the end of my little finger discovered to its surprise at 5:29pm, the water inside the flask was still incredibly hot. This, despite the exterior of the product feeling cool to the touch. Science, hey? What a wonderful thing.”
