Ummm. A single-walled bottle is hardly a 'thermos'...

$10 for 2 water bottles? Why not.

I'd totally buy several of these... if I didn't have several others sitting around my house that I never use, that is.

It's a good price for them. The cheapest I've seen them is $7 each here

I'd get some but I have tons of water bottles already. They're much better than wasting more plastic.

It's too bad that with all those fancy designs, the caps remain red on all of them.

Picked up one of these at Bed Bath and Beyond a few weeks ago for $4ish. It's a good product. But, with the addition of shipping don't know how good of a deal this is.

In any case. If you don't think you could find it cheaper locally I don't have anything bad to say about the thermos. Works pretty well and seems very sturdy.

um guys...thermos is the brand... also, I've had one of these for over a year, and there have been no issues, actually I like it a lot, just don't expect it to keep anything cold for a long time unless you keep it in the dark (like inside a backpack)

My thoughts exactly. First woot in a while I've given that thought to, though. Need more fun stuff!

And then what's the 3rd part again?

These had better be good. The last stainless bottles I bought here were the Eco Canteens. They had weird, almost microscopic holes in the steel, and the lids leaked something rotten from the getgo.

Do these give off the same "metallic" taste most stainless bottles do?

Darn, when I first saw the image I thought it was compressed air. Unfortunately they're actually just water bottles. Who wants water?

I use a bottle brush and dish soap. I have Klean Kanteens with wide mouths and these also have wide mouths. I need to replace the old narrow mouthed ones I never use anymore, so I'll pick some of these up.

I had one of these. I don't normally drool or dribble when I drink (as far as I know). But I did with this. A little hard to drink from. On the other hand, this could be the sign of a personal problem that I'm not yet fully cognizant of.

Yeah, that's a Facebook caching problem. I grumble about that a lot too.

Since this is only single-walled and non-insulated, what makes it a Thermos™?

Perhaps you have a drinking problem.

Great price for one, let alone two. Multiple reviews at Amazon confirm that the single wall steel technology is both superior to the chipp-prone liner found in SIGG bottles and more environmentally friendly. On the other hand, multiple reviews at Amazon also confirm that the lid is problematic; one reviewer claims that the, um, orifice is too small and results in the user swallowing a lot of air with the water. Others claim that the cap no longer seals effectively after periods of time ranging from a week to 5 or so months.

In any event, Amazon is offering these things for $10 a pop. If you have prime, the deal here is essentially two for the price of one. So if your cap starts to act up, just throw the environmentally friendly bottle away and use the second bottle without anyone noticing, because you involuntarily bought two of the same design. This bottle is not only a safe and secure container for life's most essential of fluids but also a sleek and sexy statement of modern fashion. The trendy artwork will nicely complement the Iced Mocha Latte you buy every morning as you drive to work in your Subaru and the sleek steel might just be the perfect companion for your iPad 2 or Macbook Air.

Additionally, the ambiguity of the eponymous acronym will impress friends and family and leave them in wonder as they puzzle over its dubiously important significance; they'll never know that it doesn't actually stand for anything.

Probably. My guess is that it's a chemical reaction between the stainless steel and minerals/electrolytes in the water. Ph-neutral distilled water probably won't have that effect. Acidic drinks like lemonade or orange juice would probably interact as well. It's one reason I don't mind BPA lining my bottles. Leeching is unlikely in short term storage, i.e. water for a few hours.

At $5 a piece not such a good deal but I'm in for 6 at $3.33 each. Besides, I can never find a water bottle when I need one. With this many they can be scatted about and I can still find one. Also, I can stock up on water for the next apocalypse. I may be going to hell but at least I will stay hydrated.

Now that's a QUALITY post! Thanks for the summary. I did chuckle, however, reading "single wall steel technology." Is there really a technology behind a simple single layer of stainless steel?

Actually, I would be surprised if the water had a metallic taste, even when left in the container for days. Good quality stainless steel forms a passive oxide layer on the surface of the metal; therefore, your beverage is in contact with more of a ceramic material (metal oxide) instead of a metallic material. The oxide layer on the metal acts as its own liner.

I have not used this exact product but I have used other similar Thermos products and never had any odd tastes in my beverages.

Note: I said GOOD stainless steel. Thermos uses 18/8 stainless steel. This is not to say if you got some generic Chinese off brand made from inferior products at Waljunk, that your water would not taste metallic. NOT ALL stainless steel is equal. There are different grades.

Thermos is a brand..... it doesn't require that every product they sell insulates hot/cold. Still confused?
