Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

When looking for the right travel gear, utility is always key. It’s for that reason alone that the Mobot Big Bertha Bottle has tightened its grip around my dirtbag heart. A 40-ounce stainless-steel bottle wrapped in a foam roller, the Mobot Big Bertha has brought together two of skiing’s most important off-hill activities—stretching and drinking—in one neat little package.

Featuring a top loop that can be attached to a daypack or travel bag, the Big Bertha has a lightweight, heat-pressed EVA foam exterior, making it easy to carry. The foam is textured you can use it to soothe aching muscles after a long day of skiing or trail running, rubbing out the kinks that often derail multiday adventures.

But rolling out lactic acid isn’t the only way the Mobot Big Bertha helps you loosen up. Made from insulated, BPA-free stainless steel, the Big Bertha is the perfect tool for keeping your beer cold (without freezing it), providing the ultimate cap to your long day on the mountain, minus aluminum cans or breakable glass bottles. Did I mention that the foam allows the bottle to float? Hot-tub après, here we come.
