REI Stainless-Steel Vacuum Food Container - 18.5 fl. rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromWorks better than expected - no leaksI bought this mainly for hot tea on day hikes and road trips, but find myself using it more for soups and noodles. Its easy to hold and open with gloves, and I have had no leaks. My first container of tea was still to hot to drink after four hours in the shade in the mid 40s. For a hot lunch on day hikes I break-up a ramen noodle pack, add hot water, and have a hot lunch on the trail. It might be too heavy for some on an extended backcountry hike, but for base camping it would be a good all-round insulated option. Cleaning is easy and I can just fit my hand and sponge inside, but the plastic lid does retain a slight odor. For the durability, stainless steel insulation, and great price, I give it five stars, just barely.
