There’s a lot of cool water bottles and vessels out there right now. But in my humble opinion none are as functional or high performing as Klean Kanteen’s Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle & Mug. And yes, a water bottle can certainly be high performing. Let me break it down for you.
Not only does this vessel pull triple duty as a thermos, mug and water bottle, but the double-walled construction and vacuum insulated interior keep hot liquids hot for six hours and cold liquids cold for 24 hours. And since it’s the do-all, drink-everything-out-of-me bottle the 100 percent stainless steel ensures easy cleaning and that lingering flavors won’t stick around.
The Klean Kanteen Vacuum Insulated Bottle & Mug comes in 12 oz, 16 oz and 20 oz sizes so everyone can have their perfect size.
I’ve been able to spend a couple days now with Klean Kanteen’s Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle & Mug and can I say: it’s the best drinking vessel I’ve ever come across. My favorite attribute is indefinitely the fact that my coffee or tea will stay hot for nearly an entire work day. I didn’t really believe this claim when I was reading over the product description, but I quickly learned that Klean Kanteen wasn’t exaggerating. My coffee, even with the Cafe Cup drinking hole open, stayed hot or very warm from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. It’s incredible. Conversely, the bottle keeps liquids refreshingly frosty for longer than I could keep track of. The bottle fits into just about every cup holder including the narrow tray in my car.
Purchasing the separately sold Cafe Cup is an absolute must if you really want the Vacuum Insulated Bottle & Mug to perform to its full potential. The leakproof Stainless Loop Cap is great for outdoor activities and gym time.

Design: Considering it’s the do-all vessel with performance and durability to spare, I’d say the design behind the Vacuum Insulated Mug & Bottle gets top marks. My only comment is that a lightweight rubber or plastic bottom may make this bottle even more versatile. The stainless steel bottom seems like it’d be slippery when trying to place the bottle on say a rock, snow or ice surface. +.75
Style: Sleek and understated, the Vacuum Insulated Mug & Bottle flies under the radar with cool colors like moss green and black. +1
Performance: It does just about everything a bottle/mug/thermos is capable of and it does it really well, aka keeping liquids hot or cold for extended periods of time. +1
Durability: It’s made of stainless steel, need we say more? +1
Innovation: The double-walled, vacuum insulation is not necessarily new. Thermos companies have been making their products with similar technology for some time, but Klean Kanteen’s use of this technology as an ultra-versatile product is creative and beneficial for active people on the go.
