    During the warmer weather I strap mt 2 qt stanley themos on my motorcycle and leave for work about 45 min ride. ! day on my way the strap broke and my themos went bounceing down the highway. I turned around to pick it up and as I was a Amherst patrol car also pulled up. The officer said a motorcycle had been exceeding the speed limit but seeing as I was already going the other way no ticket could be issued. WHEW) Anyways the Stanley had some dents and scrapes but still works fine to this day. This happened about 15 years ago.

    Growing up my dad would take me with his two law associates on road trips to follow the Tennessee Volunteer football team. Mom would pack a basket with fried pies, sandwiches and other goodies to comfort us while we were gone. Dad would pack me up and then pick up his two friends on the way out of town. One friend(Jim) was a former player from the 1931 team. He was an imposing man even in his later years. I would sit in the rear and ride along quietly listening to his stories. Jim always had his Stanley Thermos of coffee and a cigar to chew. He drank from the cup/lid and swallowed his spit. Once at a game a group of young college boys had one too many and were using every cheap four letter word they could afford. At 85 years old Jim stood and turned his body to face them (he couldn't turn his neck) and without a word the boys sat down and said nothing else for the rest of the game. The trips were all different is most ways, but the constant was always my mom's care package and Jim's Stanley. Even then i knew that I had to have one of those, because the toughest man I ever met had one. Yeah I got me a Stanley and when I carry it something deep down beckons me to push my chest out and pull my shoulders back. Thanks Jim.

    Each spring ( March) I travel the wild country of Alaska by dogteam. I have done this for over 40 years. The highlight of the day can be giving the dogs a rest and getting out the Stanley thermos and having a hot drink. I just fill it with hot water ( melted and heated snow), so there are options in the lunch bag, cocoa, tea, bullion, top ramen soup, hot cider.etc etc. We sit on the sled in the sun, gazing around at the magnificent Alaskan wilderness, and sipping our hot drinks, warming our hand on the cup,nibbling on some caribou jerky or smoked salmon, sitting on out mittens to keep them warm. In 1991 I traveled 1200 miles in Siberia, The Chucki mushers had never seen thermos bottles and they were amazed at the ease of having a hot.. sometimes life-saving, hot drink, with out having to gather firewood. Of course we left our thermos bottles with them when we returned to Alaska a month later. Perhaps the thermos bottles helped thaw the "Cold War." Thank you. Mary Shields maryshields.com

    I saw an out door drink thru bottle on sale at TK-Maxx in the UK so I bought one. After using it I was so impressed that I bought one each of the family. As promised it does not leak when tipped over, keeps drinks hot for hours even in winter... it just plain works! We also have some of the outdoor vacuum food jars and they perform very well too. Keep up the good work, love the products.
