I am looking for a good thermos to keep water really hot in a kayak. Can anyone recommend a good one?

Thanks

I have a zojirushi travel mug that keeps everything way too hot to drink for hours. The lid has a locking mechanism which is very secure. Even though it is a travel mug I don't hesitate to throw it in a bag at any orientation.

I see this brand also has a thermos

A little off topic.
Backpacking chef recommends the 24oz Thermos food jar. The wide mouth will loose heat quicker than the narrow mouth variety but is better for meals than hot drinks

Thanks Natasha. I have not heard of this brand until your post. One review has it 2nd to a Stanley brand, but the weight and sleekness of the Zojirrushi makes it a better choice for kayaking. So far at the top of my list. Thanks!

if anyone else has some intel on this brand I would love to hear it.

Cyclegranny.... not off topic at all..in fact a great link to dehydrating which will be very helpful for me. My food dehydration talents are lacking and just on a quick read of that link it has some very useful tips that will take my dehydrated meals from “just eat it”” to “Any more?”. Thanks so much.

I have a Hydroflask (well several actually, got them for free when the yoga studio my partner works for got sold and changed branding) and am pretty happy with it. It keeps my tea hot all day, and I like that I can buy replacement lids separately if needed.

Hi Jasper. Thanks for your reply... I picked up the Jojirushi thermos and I am pretty happy with it. I filled it with boiling water last night and put it outside in -2 c overnight. 9 hours later I poured out really hot water that I couldn`t keep my hand in.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions.

Long story short - if you want hot coffee/chocolate/soup in 12 hrs, the 26 oz is your target. If you pour it in hot, and don't open it, it will STILL be hot (but not tongue burning hot) the next day.

I have had the 12 oz, 18 oz, and 26 oz. I have had all the different lids. The drink cap is my go to for paddling. The stopper is easy to twist, even with gloves or mitts.

Get silver if you can. Black gets lost on the ground in the dark.

I am no chef-de-cuisine, but I can produce soup sans-lumps or lumps-enhanced on purpose!

Beef & barley (lumpy vegetables optional) is a good one for winter paddling.

I should mention that the Yeti drink cap allows you to remove the stopper from the lid entirely. This does facilitate pouring of lump-enhanced soups. The stopper is impeded by a small indicator flange, so you know you have opened it enough to drink your beverage of choice. You then turn it past to remove the stopper, but I don't recommend it on the water. It's too easy to lose your stopper.
