Are you breaking stainless flasks or glass lined?

I've had loads of flasks over the years, many allegedly "un-breakable" that have failed within a few uses. The best I've found is still the original Stanley/Aladdin stainless one. If you can find the 1.9l rather than the more common 1.3l all the better, as the larger volume stays hotter for longer. Saying that, even after a day on the boat, it's still hot enough to make a proper brew. I think Costco had them on offer a while back for around £20.

Take care when scalding stainless flasks prior to filling - I've managed to burst them while doing this. Fill gently and don't shake while they warm up.

After having gone through a number of disappointingly poor flasks I've settled on a 1.2l Thermos work flask and a 500ml Thermos ultimate flask. I've failed to break either of them and they keep stuff too hot to drink all day.

We use this,
not used a flask in a long time ( I appreciate it might fall over in a gale but never had an issue yet - bloody brilliant bit of kit! )

I`m doing a bit of mountain hiking and you have some good optinions here:

Stanley PMI | Mugs, Bottles, Coolers, Cookware

and here:

If you just looking for unbreakable waterbottle Nalgene is good:
