I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40
years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5
nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter). Mostly
I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat
Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have
shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water
is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon
tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My
sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress
The Stanley Vacuum Drink Bottle is really too heavy to take on a
backpack trip, but I'll take it on at least one short trip.
I'll take the drink bottle with me on each of my backpack and day hike
trips - fill it with a hot drink or soup for on the road and at the trailhead. That would be 2 or 3 backpack trips in each of the FR and
LTR periods and at least that many day hikes.
The drink bottle is advertised as a commuter bottle, so I can take it
on a commuter trip at least once a week.
I think I will be able to verify that it keeps hot drinks hot for 6
hours as advertised, verify that it withstands the amount of abuse
I will subject it to, and verify it doesn't leak. I'll try a number
of drinks to verify it doesn't add any weird taste.
I have ten test reports and four owner's reviews at
I am testing the Terramar Thermalator top and bottom and the All
Terrain Winter Sport Screen.
I have applications in for two socks.
I completed the monitor for the Appy Trails tent and the All Terrain Wonder Wash and am monitoring the Silva Tech 40.
Thank you for considering me as a tester for the Stanley Outdoor Vacuum Drink Bottle.
