OK… I reviewed this product about a year ago and I said I would return to write a review based on if the product still holds up. Yup… still enjoying piping hot coffee! No - the coffee hasn’t been sitting in the thermos for a year! That would defy physics. However, once we finally got some cold days here in Florida, it was time to start carrying a vacuum bottle in the field again. This bottle delivers. Pour hot coffee in it in the morning (I found that priming the bottle isn’t necessary) and all day long the coffee is still very hot. I’ve even tested it over a 24 hour period. 7:00 am the coffee went in the bottle, drank a few cups throughout the day, and on the next morning, roughly 24 hours later the coffee was still drinkabley warm!
I had trouble with the fact that it didn’t have a handle. I solved this by attaching an aftermarket roll bar grab handle (an Oh Sh*t handle) for a Jeep. It’s for a 3 inch roll bar. Fits on the bottle perfect and looks cool too. I opted for a black and red handle to mach Primus’ styling. All in all I can’t believe what a fine product Primus has put their name on. Buy one!

Ok, so I’ve only had this product for a week, so I can’t vouch for its long term durability, but a year from now I will give an update on its performance. I work (and play) outdoors - a lot, so on cold days all I ask for is a steaming hot cup of java to keep me cozy. I didn’t get that with the Stanley 1.1 liter vacuum bottle that this Primus brand replaced. So far, I like it. I ‘primed’ the bottle as indicated in the instructions and all day long (no exaggeration) every time I poured myself a cap full of joe, it was piping hot. This is with repeated openings of the bottle, getting my cup full of caffeine every few hours or so. By 4:00pm (bottle was filled at 7:00am), when I was down to the last cup, it was still steaming hot. There is no doubt that this can keep beverages hot for 10 + hours. The only drawback is that there is no handle, but when your briefcase is a backpack this is a minor point. Overall, it’s light weight (compared to the Stanley I replaced), very packable, and very – very useful on cold expeditions.
