TOP 3 Products to keep drinks cool in the sunshine☀️

Here in Great Britain we are never ready for the sun to shine. It happens so rarely that we are shocked each time, but after that shock subsides we head off to beaches, amusement parks or go wandering up hills. These are the places you don't tend to find fridges, but still want nice cold drinks, so here are our Top 3 Best Products for keeping Drinks Cool.

1. Frio Drinks Cooler

If you're like me, and you like your drinks to remain cool to the bottom of the can/bottle (it holds both), then this little cooler is the perfect accessories for your travels, or for using at home instead of having to water down your drinks with ice. 

It works by using a process of evaporation to cool - you simply soak the cooler in cold water, remove your drink from the fridge and place inside the cooler.

Before the cooler is put in water the desiccated crystals take up very little space, making the cooler flat packed, and lightweight, perfect for popping in luggage or backpacks. When the water eventually evaporates it goes back to its original flat form. Read our review here...

 
 

2. Hydro Flask 21oz Standard Mouth

The unique double wall insulation on the Hydro Flask will keep your pre-chilled drinks cold for  a whopping 24 hours!

 It's BPA free, and has a coloured powder coating that has a slightly textured feel, which makes the grip much easier, and a lot less slippy than a smooth shiny bottle, and it's tough, I know because I've treated it quite abysmally, from chucking it into my gym bag, to bashing it about in the back of 4x4s for over a year now, and apart from a couple of little dinks from where I dropped it on to a concrete floor (or two) it's still going strong. Read the review here...

 
 

These cooling jackets will fit most water bottles up to 1 litre, and are also brilliant at keeping your pop, wine or Prosecco🥂 cool. 

The Cooler works by using a process of evaporation to cool - you simply soak the cooler in cold water, remove your drink from the fridge and place inside the cooler.

Ta-dah, nice'n'cool drinks all day..  Read the review here…

 

Hydro Flask Insulated Food Flask

Hydro Flask Insulated Food Flask

In a bid to curb the amount of money I spend on lunches and to lay off the dreaded white bread, I decided that, as often as possible, I would take a proper homemade meal into work, as opposed to a boring cheese butty.  The problem to this new approach succeeding is that I don't have access to any kind of heating devise, so it would probably mean a salad, and in the words of my man-hero, Ron Swanson, “Why would I eat the food that my food eats?”…

The Drinks Cooler works in the same way as their other cooling products using a process of evaporation to cool - you simply soak the cooler in ……..

Jerry Bottle

Jerry Bottle

Now it could be argued that the Jerry Bottle is ‘just’ a water bottle, and on paper you’d be correct.  Mine is the 550ml matt brushed steel version with the sustainably harvested bamboo and metal lid.  It’s single walled (so not for hot liquids) food grade 304 (18/8) stainless steel with a food grade silicon seal in the lid and an electropolished Interior that doesn’t….

Contigo West Loop

Contigo West Loop

You could argue that when it comes to travel mugs I’m pretty much a closed book, as in nothing else will do, my Contigo is the best and everything else is wildly inferior.

I’m currently on my second West Loop in around 5 years, the first one is still working fine, it’s just that, as you’ll read a bit further on, new versions have a better lid that makes them easier to clean, so Muddy Madam bought the replacement for my birthday…..

Hydro Flask 21oz Standard Mouth

Hydro Flask 21oz Standard Mouth

As someone who has 3 Klean Kanteen bottles (2 thin walled, 1 insulated), I came across these Hydro Flasks at an outdoor trade show, and struck up a conversation with the supplier along the lines of "What makes these better than KK?" 

Well after a 5 minute chat I was given an orange coloured 21oz flask to try. At first, I was wary of something that I presumed was a pretender to the crown, but after a….
