ssteel drinking bottleImprovements in technology has seen the traditional flask evolve into a whole range of specialist products. Water bottles are traditionally made of plastics but the possible contribution of some plastics to cancer, has become a concern.

In addition, the potential impact of millions of plastic water bottles on the environment means that sustainable alternatives have become popular. These health and environmental issues have led to a demand for metal water bottles, usually made from aluminum or stainless steel.

The growth of the sports and leisure market made it inevitable that durable stainless steel vacuum insulated hydration bottles would follow. So now you can have an ice cold drink while daring the urban wilderness on your mountain bike.
