Gear: Canteen built with commitment to environment


A dependable, leak-free container for water or other drinks is a necessity whether you’re on the road or at camp. Klean Kanteen’s Insulated Vacuum Mug and Bottle has a double-walled construction that works to keep drinks hot for up to six hours and cold for more than 24 hours.

An eco-friendly alternative to plastic, it has a 100 percent food-grade stainless steel interior that doesn’t impart any flavor. It’s easy to clean, and unlike other thermoses, it’s dishwasher safe. It’s also free from BPA, phthalates, lead or other toxins. It has a large mouth opening to insert ice cubes and rounded corners to discourage bacteria growth.

You can also feel good about Kleen Kanteen’s commitment to the environment. The company uses eco-friendly packaging and provides a lifetime warranty for its products, ensuring long-lasting durability. If it does have to be tossed, the bottle still doesn’t have to end up in a landfill; it’s recyclable.

The Klean Kanteen Vacuum Insulated Mug and Bottle is available in three sizes: 12 ounce, which is $24.95; 16 ounce, which is $27.95; and 20 ounce, which is $29.95. Comes in silver, gray, black, white, blue and pink. To purchase, visit kleankanteen.com.
