Bringing back memories of car journeys as a small child is this Revival Flask by Thermos. And I’m all for it.
Do you still use a flask? Not sure I do a lot. I take a heated cup pretty much everywhere with a got drink inside and I think those have probably taken over from the classic thermos flask in recent years.
But if you want a couple of drinks or want to share your coffee (other hot drinks are available) then the flask is still a useful bit of kit. Whether that’s for a drink with a picnic or an emergency should you get stuck somewhere in the car. The classic flask can still earn its keep.
And if you are going to buy one, why not something unashamedly retro? Yes, like the one you might recall from days gone by. The classic ‘tartan’ flash by thermos. They were all tartan, weren’t they?
What you have here is a replica of one of the original Thermos flask designs, known officially as the Model 18 and in production for years. No idea when it came out, but I suspect as far back as the 1950s. Maybe even longer.
So the original pattern and colourways, this is a 500ml retro flask with a five-year guarantee, able to keep a drink hot for 18 hours and something cold for 24 hours. Cup on the top, naturally.
Picnics, festivals, drive out, allotments, you name it, this is an ideal companion. £30 if you want one – and that’s directly from Thermos.
