The bottle keeps drinks hot, but the exterior is too fragile

I received the Stanley outdoor bottle 2 weeks ago on 5/19. I use it daily. The bottle works great but the finish is much too fragile (see the attached gear photos taken on 6/4).

As others have reviewed, the bottle is uncanny at keeping beverages hot. I brew coffee every morning at 7am, and have found the bottle will keep it fairly hot more than 5 hours later. For best results, the instructions recommend "pre-heating" the bottle by putting hot water in the bottle for about a minute before your beverage of choice.
