Title: What is a good leak proof bicycle thermos?
Post by: decessus on January 18, 2015, 02:39:57 AM
I was looking around for a good thermos that won't leak (if I put it in my panier bag for example) coffee (or soup, water, etc.)...I found the following three below - although I think all of them had a few reviews where the commenter complained about leakage ... Does anyone have any experience with these and/or could recommend a good bike thermos that won't leak when riding to work?

1) Zojirushi SVGG50AH Tuff Slim (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0030KX2VG/ref=s9_simh_gw_p79_d0_i3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-2&pf_rd_r=193XJVKA7F6K5KJYSG85&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=1970566782&pf_rd_i=desktop)
2)  Thermos 16-Ounce Stainless-Steel Backpack Bottle, Silver (http://www.amazon.com/Thermos-16-Ounce-Stainless-Steel-Backpack-Bottle/dp/B000K604P0/ref=sr_1_2?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1421573780&sr=1-2&keywords=thermos+nissan)
3) WaterVault Stainless Steel 25oz Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Sport Thermos Bottle -Silver Blue White (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MI95HEK/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p79_d0_i6?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1&pf_rd_r=193XJVKA7F6K5KJYSG85&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=1970559082&pf_rd_i=desktop)

Thank you in advance.

I love the insulated Klean kanteen bottles- the screw top lid is leak proof, and you can switch to the cafe lid if you want to use it as a drinking mug... Several sizes from 12 to 20oz (if I am remembering right)... I have one I've used almost daily for about 6 years and still works perfectly...

I have the 2nd one. I haven't used it when riding to work, but it would fit in my water bottle holder nicely. It doesn't leak.

I bought this one:

Doesn't leak, lid completely comes apart for cleaning & keeps things hot or cold for a whole work day. When I bought mine my husband was so jealous that he ended up buying one about a month later. Best $40 we've spent though!
