    Default Stanley - my new addiction

    Quality, well thought out stuff.
    I love it!

    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.

    Jip, I love their beer tumblers!

    After a colleague of mine spilt his coffee onto the centre console of the cockpit… causing $80000 damage… I invested in a 475ml trigger flask. Those should be issued as part of the unirform at any airline!!

    I like that they also went into different colours

    I got myself one of these trigger flasks: https://www.sportsmanswarehouse.co.z...0aAvfDEALw_wcB

    I wasn't very impressed though. It wasn't 100% watertight, and my Yeti tumbler keeps coffee much warmer for longer.

    Bought 2x trigger mugs for the old man and lady. They are exceptional quality - so much so that their only complaint is it keeps the coffee too hot for too long

    I have three of them.
    Have not had an issue with any one of them.

    Mmmm I wonder... Maybe I got a dud then, or didn't put it together correctly.

    It's a great size and the concept is excellent.

    I am a believer in their flasks. Went through many many many flasks for fishing over some 20+ years and all but 2 have failed. Currently own a 6 year old Stanley and 11 year old Thermos. Both still perfect apart from the rock scratches. What can I say though is that the Thermos does stay hotter for longer.
    As an example…
    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.Click image for larger version.

    I have 2 Stanley flasks and 2 of the trigger mugs. All well used and no problems, the trigger mugs are an item that if one were lost/stolen i would replace it immediately. I was in Belgium recently and saw this lunchbox which i don't really need but something about it appeals to me.

    Got Swambo a trigger flask because with baby she will make coffee, then get busy and next moment its cold.
    The flask fits in here nicely and if she still has hot coffee in the afternoon, I score points on a daily basis.
