The Outside hallways are stacked with boxes, and our offices are overflowing with gear. But even we can't get our hands on every product. To fill the gaps, we often ask experts about the gear they're using. Other times, we read online reviews.
This week, with winter just around the corner, we're dreaming about sipping whiskey from flasks after a long day on the slopes. To find the best hard-alcohol haulers, we went to Amazon, scanned for the highest-rated models, then pulled our favorite reviews, which are listed below. Note: some reviews have been edited for length and clarity.
Cruise Flask Concealable And Reusable Flask ($10)
"All I can say is, ‘wow’. I would've spent hundreds of dollars on liquor for my birthday cruise if it weren't for these flasks. Needless to say, I was worried we would get caught trying to smuggle Patron onto the boat but there were absolutely no problems getting it on board. Thank you Cruise Flask, you made my birthday 100 times better."
Stanley Adventure Stainless Steel Flask ($20)
"My husband uses this when he's going somewhere and doesn't want to take a big bottle of bourbon with him. It holds 12 ounces of booze, which is more than enough, doesn't leak, and doesn't change the taste; no complaints whatsoever!"
Top Shelf Stainless Steel Flask and Funnel Set ($10)
"This flask works great. It’s easy to clean, store, and use. The funnel is relatively sturdy and it doesn't seem like it'll break anytime soon. At the price point, you're definitely getting what you're paying for, though. The walls are quite thin and the material doesn't have the best finish, but it will consistently get the job done."
