Anyone hike with a thermos instead of or in addition to a nalgene? Have any recommendations for a lightweight roughly 1L size?

Hydro flask vacuum insulated bottles should work.

^Yes. And stay away from the Hydroflip lid. The pressure difference tends to force out some coffee. Better the wide mouth or narrow (normal) screw tops. The simpler, the better.

I luuves me some coffee in the BC. It does a lot toward making a cold, windy peak more pleasant.

Go stainless all the way around, i.e. with a stainless inner (not the traditional reflective glass which breaks). They are heavier and less efficient but bomber and sufficient for a the day.

≤ 16 oz is sufficient for me. A little goes a long way in the cold. I drink more coffee on the drive than on the trail. More would be useless wight. Soup in a thermos might be a different story...

I have the snow peak kanpai.

It doesn't quite keep stuff as hot as a glass lined thermos, but it's also not as bulky either. It's pretty tough, I've dropped it heaps of times. There is a titanium version (über $$$$) that shaves some weight.

It's got 3 lids, 1 for cold, 1 for hot and one for pouring. I've only ever used the "hot" lid.

Need to find the US (REI?) version of this http://www.mec.ca/product/5029-809/mec- ... f=10+50463

$9.75 and keeps tea/coffee/soup hot in my pack for 10 hours of splitboarding. Scalding hot for 5 hours even. Did I mention it's less than $10?
