GSI Outdoors - Microlite 500 Flip, Vacuum Bottle Review

I thought I'd share an interesting stat with you today. Did you know in the USA we used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year? Did you know on average 250 coffee drinks are sold each day at coffee drive-through businesses in the USA?

If you are a person who drinks water and coffee and who buys these each day, week, month, just think about all the bottles and cups you are throwing away. Now, this post is NOT about recycling. I want to ask you to consider a different approach to your water and coffee consumption.

Consider investing in a quality cup which you will be able to use day-after-day and fill with water and coffee at home. Not only will you be able to say you are not contributing to the tossing of plastic bottles and cups, but you will save a significant amount of money - far, far beyond what you spend to get a nice cup.

My husband and I did this a few years ago and this works very well for us. So, today I'm happy to let you know about one such excellent cup you might consider getting to use for your water and/or coffee each day.

GSI Outdoors makes a number of excellent products, but one I particularly like is their new Microlite 500 Flip which they sent to me for review.

GSI Outdoors - Microlite 500 Flip, Vacuum Bottle
Favorite Features -
  • Incredibly lightweight and compact, yet holds 17 ounces.
  • Stainless vacuum bottle keeps hot beverages hot. for 10 hours and cold beverages cold for 20 hours.
  • Available in six fun colors.
GSI Outdoors says; "With its sleek design and clean construction, this high-spec, durable Glacier Stainless Vacuum Bottle will keep your beverages hot or cold for hours and hours. Perfect for commuting, picnic, sporting events and base camping. Incredibly lightweight, vacuum-insulated bottle provides 10 hrs. hot and 20 hrs. of cold retention while being 1/3rd lighter than traditional designs. Impossibly thin, 2mm walls are thinner than most single wall plastic bottles for an amazingly compact footprint that fits anywhere. 18/8 stainless steel provides unrivaled purity and durability.  Innovative cup/cap’s stainless steel liner and insulating plastic exterior protects lips, hands, and taste."

I love how sleek, compact and light-weight the Microlite 500 Flip is. In my own opinion, it is absolutely perfect for water or coffee - as well as easy to fill and use. The colors are beautiful - at least the orange one I received for review is quite a nice color; deep, rich and lovely. The Microlite 500 Flip is a bottle you will be able to happily use for your own water/coffee bottle each day and also one which would make a wonderful gift for people on your gift list.
