Rated 5 out of 5 by cavesar Great for keeping drinks hot or cold
I really like that this LL Bean Hydroflask came with an extra Splash Band. The Splash Band was used to hold the screw lid strap against the side. The Splash Band can then be used to keep the flip lid with the flask when the screw lid is being used.
I haven't had any leaking issues with the screw lid. The snap lid is good for accidental spills but I wouldn't depend upon it staying closed all day upside-down on your only dry layer. Even with the screw lid, if one is worried about leaks, put the Hydroflask in a sealed storage bag - Murphy does like to visit at just the wrong time.
I use Hydroflask in the winter - winter hiking, camping, Nordic ski patrol. They keep my warm drinks warm, and room temperature liquids from freezing. For winter camping one can put hot water in them at night - hot water bottle, then in the morning have at least luke warm water for a morning starter beverage.
In the summer they are great for keeping iced drinks cool, or room temperature drinks from heating up, during the day. I often cool them overnight in the fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wisconsindweller works in the winter
I wanted a cup that would keep my coffee hot and leak free during the 20 minute walk to work when it was well below freezing outside. This canteen worked great and was easy to clean after.

Rated 2 out of 5 by YoungProfessional84 Thermos lid is a joke
I only use this as a thermos for coffee, but it only partially serves its primary function (to transport hot coffee from A to B). To be fair, coffee DOES stay hot for a long time. But not necessarily in the thermos! Since this has no handle, I throw it in my bag/backpack. The lid is NOT secure, it takes very little friction (apparently) to open it. I found this out the hard way with all my papers soaked.
This product would work great just walking around the house/ kitchen. But if there's any transportation involved, this bugger is accident prone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BerkeleyprepMom Rocking Customer Service
No wonder graduate business schools study LLBean for customer service. They absolutely rock! My daughter had a water bottle used only for a two week camp. The little attachment to the lid broke, so she lost the lid. Not a product fault, since kids can be animals. LLBean replaced the whole bottle since old one was discontinued. Even paid postage. These people rock. They even engraved the new bottle like the old one. They have done EVERYTHING but add Spring water?

Rated 5 out of 5 by GraceA 2nd time is the charm
First Bean Canteen leaked badly. As others mentioned, there seems to be a quality control problem. As usual, however, Beans was super good about returning it and sending another very quickly. The new one works perfectly. If you use the drinking lid, the coffee stays hot for about 4 or 5 hours, but if you use the tight seal lid, it stays hot much longer. I haven't measured the exact time however, but, in the spirit of inquiry, will make coffee one of these nights and see if it is hot in the morning. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigshangcva38 18 OZ. Hydro Flask Insulated Bean Canteen
I have bought several water bottles from L L Bean and this is by far the best. I like the 18oz size,butI didn't like the lids,so I ordered online the lid with the straw. I hope in the future they will make the 24oz. With the wide mouth. I also hope in the future L L Bean will sell the straw lids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweeten Great travel coffee mug!
I really like this mug. It doesn't keep things hot for the advertised 12 hours, but if you pre-warm it with hot water it will stay warm for several hours with the drinking lid on.
I also really like the interchangeable lids. This comes in really handy for throwing my coffee in my backpack and then switching the lids out once I'm at work.

Good for a water bottle but doesn't keep hot beverages warn for very long, most inexpensive coffee cups do a better job. Nice top to drink from, I bought orange to help me from losing it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NoLongerQuiet Up to 12 hours hot - did not live up to the claim
I ordered the orange insulated bean canteen because of the promise of up to 12 hours hot; my hot tea was luke warm within 2 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hunter1511 Great Product
This is the best drink container ever. Holds temperature very well. The pop lid top does not leak, so imagine what the solid lid also provided will do. If you want a rugged reliable cup this is it.
