My husband is off every day working. I like to make sure that he has enough liquids with him to keep him hydrated throughout the day. When it's summer, he loves his ice water, but now that it is winter, and, yes, it does get cold here in the desert, he likes to bring hot tea with him to drink. He needs a big container that will keep his beverages just the way he likes them any time of the year. That's why one of his gifts this year is the Xtreme Canteen.
No more plastic for my husband! Now he has the most innovative beverage container with the Xtreme Canteen. This 32 ounce beverage container is made of 18/8 food grade stainless steel - inside and outside. The only plastic you'll find with the Xtreme Canteen is the plastic washer in the lid to keep it from leaking. This really is the most Xtremely environmentally conscious water bottle.
Xtreme Canteen designed this container correctly. They advertise that it will keep cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours, and hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours. I thoroughly tested the Extreme Canteen to see if it lives up to this claim. It Does! The other day, I filled this bottle with ice and water to see if it will keep the water icy cold - as it claims it will - for a full 24 hours. I waited the full 24 hours and found that there was still ice with icy cold water at a full 24 hours.

Don't worry about putting ice into this bottle. It has a wide mouth opening that measures 2 1/8 inch in diameter. I have a few of those huge ice cube containers. This wide mouth opening just swallows those ice cubes up.
With the double wall insulation, you will never find any condensation developing on the outside of the Xtreme Canteen. It does not get cold on the outside, nor, when there is a hot beverage within, it does not get hot on the outside. I did notice that can feel cold and heat from the lid - the heat is never hot enough to burn. The double wall insulation of this bottle really really works well.
Because this container is double walled insulated, there will never be any condensation on the outside. The powder coated paint finish makes sure that the Xtreme Canteen will not slip out of your hands. It is 100% recyclable and BPA free. Having that stainless steel interior means that no flavors will leach into your beverages. Xtreme Canteen designed their bottles in Honolulu (but they are made in China - wish it was the USA).
Xtreme Canteen has a vision to raise awareness about the over accumulation of plastic water bottles and address the problem by trying to eliminate the need for so much plastic being dumped into our landfills and oceans, daily. The Xtreme Canteen embodies their goal - not only is it an environmentally friendly product, but it also provides comfort when experiencing the xtreme conditions of every day life.
An Xtreme Canteen would make a great present to put under the Christmas tree or stuffed into a stocking! The Xtreme Canteen 32 oz stainless steel vacuum insulated stainless steel bottle, just like I received, can be purchased at Amazon. It's available in five cool colors: Royal Blue (mine); Blush Pink; Midnight Black; Shark Grey; and Tiffani Blue. It is the most innovative drinking bottle I have yet to come across.
