    I was thinking this morning.

    I wish Stanley made some baby bottles. Then we can just stick it into baby Swambos mouth at night.

    When do we a 1 day fishing trip. Leave home the afternoon, fish all night and back home again the next afternoon. I usually use the Thermos. Make a flask before leaving then only have that for breakfast the next morning some 20+ hours later and still burn your tongue. The Stanley is just ready to drink at that time frame but both do need to kept sealed until then. Obviously they will lost heat when not completely full and opened every few minutes.
    For reference this is the Thermos I’ve got and they are all about the same price as the equivalent capacity Stanley.Attachment 661149

    I'm a huge Stanley fan, nothing comes close to their flasks, I've often had piping hot coffee out the flask after over 16 hours and ice water or coldrink after it has been lying in the sun in a hot bakkie for the entire day.

    I have a 1l flask, a 2l one, then I also have the one handed trigger mug and another mug with a screw top. I still want that coffee system flask, the big one.

    In the last few years family members brought me a few Yeti mugs from the US, it's hard to compare the Yeti and Stanley since I don't have similar products to make a direct comparison, but I must say I like the Yeti mugs quite a lot.
    I have a big must be 750ml one if not more which I think is intended for beer since it has a bottle opener on the bottom, then I have a smaller must be 400ml or so one with a handle and another one more like a traditional coffee mug also with a handle.

    I have a uncle who always makes the most delicious soups, his party trick when camping is usually to bring a 2l Stanley food flask full of soup, he will then quickly bake a bread then we have soup and bread as a starter.

    I do like the look of the Yeti products, haven't tried one yet though.

    Pulled the trigger on the 1.9L flask on Amazon and saved myself around R200/R300 including shipping/customs etc

    A pity I couldn't support a local business but they seem intent on having huge mark-ups along with whoeverbrings them into SA.

    In the past I saw somewhere a SA shop who stocked Yeti think it was a fishing shop, but also silly expensive even compared to Stanley. I can't remember how Yeti pricing compares to Stanley in the US.

    If I have to choose between a Yeti and Stanley product at more or less the same price, then I'll probably take the Stanley each time.

    With that being said with what I have now, it's horses for courses, for a road trip I'll take a Stanley flask and the Stanley trigger mug because it fits in a cup holder, for camping I'll take my medium size Yeti mug with the handle, everything works lekker in it from coffee to a dop. I also always take a Stanley flask with when camping for drinking water in the tent during the night.

    I think some people do not realise that Stanley now has a range of flasks with different ratings...

    Well, it’s pretty good stuff esp the flasks, but like many things in todays world it seems that “ain’t what it was”. Bought two flasks last year and the paint is easily scratched. I think the older ones had a “hammerlite” quality highly resistant and long lasting.

    cheers

    What have you got from them that is interesting and useful?

    This is my newest favorite:







    I used to collect braaiers/outdoor cooking machines.

    My wife made me promise to stop

    So now I find reasons to get the Stanley products.
    Kind Regards Paul

    The complaints around Stanley flasks not working as advertised reminded me of this thread - https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...59#post2787659

    Seems that it is not too difficult to get a non working version swapped out, details in thread linked to above.

    R1,100 for the 1.9L (changes based on daily exchange rate)

    Edit: Heres the breakdown. Shows you how much we get charged here for some things. Under R600 for the actual product in USA if converting directly with our #####y exchange rate.

    My latest addition is this beer mug. It keeps the beer very cold for a long time. Works extremely well with Gin & Toni’s as well

    We have several Stanley products. Some of them around 30 years in use. I did a walk through in a very comprehensive Stanley Display a few months ago. Must have missed the the bear mugs. Will definitely get four of them for our Cruiser Camper. Were looking quite a while for something to replace the Stainless mugs with.

    Dickr thanks for your post.
