When you are out on an adventure, there is not much that beats sitting down and having a steaming hot drink. If it is in the summer, you may instead want the drink to be chilled and wonderfully healthy.
Regardless of the temperature you want on the drink, a good thermos can ensure that the drink maintains the same temperature for a long time. The thermos is not a new invention directly, it has actually been around since the end of the 19th century.
The fact is, however, that small improvements are made all the time, which makes the thermoses easier to carry while keeping the temperature better. Maybe it’s time to replace your old faithful servant and invest in a modern and efficient thermos?

How Did the Test Work?
Since we in the team all like to be out hiking, we had a lot of our own thermoses to include in the test. We also did research online regarding which thermoses seem to be the most popular.
We, therefore, bought a number of complementary thermoses that we thought should be included in the test. Step two was to perform a temperature test. The most important task of a thermos is of course to keep the temperature of its contents as good and as long as possible.
By measuring the temperature of the contents at regular intervals, we saw which thermoses were best for their task. We have also used all our thermoses in real life to see how they work in a practical way.
Our best-in-test top list is a balanced assessment of a number of factors such as temperature retention, quality feel, functionality and design. We have also taken into account the prices of the products in relation to what you actually get for your money.
