Light enough for long treks, and tough enough to chew nails and fart tacks.

Very Pleased so far.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was looking for a decent sized thermos to take hot drinks with me while backcountry skiing. So far, the Primus has been great. It Is fairly large and bulky but it fits fine in my backcountry ski pack (38 liter pack). I I were doing something where shaving weight was a concern, I'd leave at home. One small issue I have the bottle is the lid that doubles as a cup. The sealing screwtop is fine and bomber, but the outer lid that you use as a cup tends to come off too easily, no big deal but kind of odd. Overall, great for serving up piping hot tea just before skiing untracked pow.

I'm looking for a thermos to hold hot beverages while backcountry skiing in the Tetons. What do you think of this one?
This would be perfect actually! It is ideal for hot drinks but you can also use it for cold beverages. Its double wall vacuum insulation is specifically intended for temperature retention so that all your hot drinks stay at just the right temperature.
Will work, but you might consider a Kleen Kanteen INSULATED instead... for a bit more versatility.

You need to fill your vacuum bottle with boiling water for 5 minutes before you use it. This will ensure that it keeps your food or water hot for as long as possible.
It is best to keep it in a bag, preferably surrounded by other insulation material. When kept in perfect conditions, a vacuum flask can keep things warm for up to 24 hours.
