Revolutionary Bottle Holds Hot Coffee And Cold Water At The Same Time

Like Ant-Man and The Wasp or Ja Rule and Ashanti, there are some duos that are just destined to work in perfect harmony. While coffee and water used to need their own respective carrying vessels, they are finally getting a joint venture through a Kickstarter campaign called H2Joe .

The H2Joe bottles let you carry around 12 ounces of water AND 12 ounces of coffee at the same time.

The unique flask works by keeping the two liquids in different compartments and two separate spouts, all on the same lid. That means the coffee is being stored at the bottom of the traveler, flowing through its own path, and coming out of its own corresponding spout. Same with the water.

“One of our main goals with H2Joe was to help combat chronic dehydration… without having to sacrifice coffee,” co-founder John Anthony said. “When we designed H2Joe, we wanted it to be easy to transport in one hand and have a natural feel.”

The leak-proof compartments are described as a, “double-walled coffee chamber,” and a “triple-walled water chamber,” which means your coffee won’t get cold for at least six hours, and your water won’t get warm for at least eight hours.

This is extremely convenient for busy folks who usually carry around two bottles. You know who you are.

The bottle’s starting Kickstarter pledge price for the first 24 hours is $34, which will go up to $49 thereafter. The campaign funding goal of $20,000, set to end March 13.

7 Of The Most Ridiculous Flasks Money Can Buy

From a young age, we begin to keep things from our parents. Broken vases, bad report cards, and, eventually, our first bottle of cheap, rubbing alcohol vodka. Adulthood brings us certain rights, but kicks us out of bars because we’re not 21. By the time we reach our coveted 21st birthday, there’s such a pent up desire for legally sanctioned alcohol poisoning, we set out to live the most dangerous year(s) of our lives.

Whether you’re a novice or a veteran, your new parents are security guards and bouncers. Modern screening processes require an upgrade from the shoebox under your bed. In no particular order (because the flask chooses you), here are 7 of the most ridiculous, functional flasks your money can buy:

1. GLASK

Screen Shot 2016-02-19 at 12.26.27 PM

The Glask is a baseball glove that accommodates an eight-ounce disposable pouch. Though you might feel ridiculous reenacting this photo, take solace in the creators’ business acumen that will have you buying packs of disposable pouches until it corrupts your love of baseball.

This flask also has limited uses, but if you want to try to take it to a nightclub, no one’s stopping you.

Cost: $35.99 (+$5 after each three uses)

Get it: Glask

2. VSSL Flasklight

2c89485728740acc727679874f065a61_original

If you like to drink in the woods and prefer not getting lost, the Flasklight should be your best friend. Not your actual best friend who will hold your hair while you puke on an 80-year-old tree, but the one with a cap that doubles as a compass and a battery powered flashlight in the base. It holds 10 ounces of alcohol while housing two collapsible shot glasses and a bottle opener in a secret compartment.

It looks like a water bottle, but “FLASK” is printed on the side, so you should consider some kind of sticker if you try to make it more suited to your urban needs.

Cost: $55 Pre-order; $65 Regular Price

Get it: VSSL Gear

3. Flask Bangle

xgold-flask-bangle.jpg.pagespeed.ic.CEXPZPsMe7

This patented Cynthia Rowley accessory has a nautical chicness to it that doesn’t make up for high price tag. Each bangle only holds three ounces and is made from stainless steel. Patent be damned, a similar bracelet with lower capacity is available at Urban Outfitters for a small fraction of the cost.

Cost: $225; $365 24k Gold Plated

Get it: Cynthia Rowley

4. Drink Caddy Driver

201745-z1

Golf is a loooonnnggg game and no one knows that better than the fine folks at Drink Caddy. Thermally insulated and boasting a 1.6 liter capacity, this flask is the most inconspicuous (assuming you don’t have extremely high-end golf clubs).  A less attractive putter version holds marginally less alcohol, but both types are battery-operated dispensers.

Cost: $99 Driver; $69 Putter

Get it: Drink Caddie, Brookstone, and Hammacher Schlemmer

5. StashPad

3a3c64d477af7517b37548ba56aca229_original

From the guys who brought you iFlask comes a larger, somehow less streamlined gadget flask. While it won’t pass as an iPad up close, the StashPad looks like a generic tablet and holds 12 ounces as well as a compartment for “cigars.” 

Cost: $39.95 Retail; $19 Kickstarter

Get it: StashPad’s Kickstarter

6. Booze Books

Edgar_Poe_Books_1024x1024

Everyone has that one friend who takes a book with them everywhere. Now, you can seem intellectual and diffident with this old-fashioned flask concealed in a fake copy of Sherlock Holmes. You can also get what looks like a complete anthology of Edgar Allen Poe stories. Neither book has actual words on their pages, so relax bibliophiles.

Cost: $34.95 Retail; $28.95 Pre-Order

Get it: Bender Bound

7. The Drinking Jacket

o-DRINKING-JACKET-facebook

Okay, this is not a flask. The Drinking Jacket is for all the die-hard alcoholics who want to be comfortable and have excessively deep pockets (literally). The people who want this jacket already have a traditional flask, need room for beer, and desperately want to open bottles with their zipper.

Cost: $85

Get it: Missing Ink Shop/Zane Lamprey

These Whiskey Flasks Are Designed To Look Like Classic Game Cartridges

Retro-Game-Flasks

Usually when someone is seen carrying an old video game cartridge, they’re labeled as a vintage gamer. Now that this series of whisky flasks cleverly designed to look like retro games exists, they can also earn the label of drunk.

Designed by Matt Cornell of Ink Whiskey, the drinking flasks were inspired by his fondness of vintage video games. Each flask is a spoof on a classic video game including Mega-Man, Duck Hunt, Final Fantasy and many others. However, they all feature an alcoholic theme.

Check out some of the witty designs below.

VG-Flask-List

The flasks can be found at Ink Whiskey for $20 each where complete collection can be viewed. It should also be noted that the whisky flasks should not be inserted into a vintage game console. Especially in a drunken state.

Giant Handbag Flask Lets You Smuggle More Than a Fifth of Booze

handbag-flask

Take it from a female, most handbags are way too big for what we put in there. A small clutch is perfectly adequate for sunglasses, cell phones, and wallets, so unless you’re lugging around a bowling ball, is there really any reason to carry a bowling ball-sized bag?

Well, here’s a satchel that actually makes use of all the extra space: the Bev-Bag Secret Handbag Flask. From the folks who previously brought us the hairbrush flask is this new, monstrous purse that also holds 28 ounces (or a little larger than a fifth) of booze. $36 buys you the mildly stylish, black leather drink smuggling vehicle, plus the benefit of not having to spend $12 on craft cocktails or $8 on craft beers anywhere.

Although, as one Geekologie reader pointed out, at this size, you really might as well just bring the whole bottle.

This Cool Mitten Flask is Perfect for Winter Thumb Sucking, Your Thumb Being Alcohol

mitten-flask

We’re not saying this is the reason Santa’s face is so red all the time, but we definitely wouldn’t be surprised.

Available starting in October is this bright red set of knitted mittens that also have the benefit of holding up to three ounces of your favorite booze. Like most hidden flask attire, these things come with a spill-proof drinking valve that lets you discreetly knock back the good stuff in line on Black Friday or while racing down the ski slopes.

The sucky part is only one of the mitts comes complete with hidden beer bladder while the other’s just a  regular glove. We suggest buying two pairs and giving the normal halves away to granny. God knows what good three ounces would do anyone otherwise.

Mitten Flask: $18 @ Perpetual Kid

Conceal Your Booze in This Sunscreen Flask

sunscreen-flask

Carrying a flask in public is usually a no no. It’s a weird, judgmental world.  But luckily, the folks over at Smuggle Your Booze have come up with a genius way to tote liquor this summer — the Sunscreen Flask Bottle.

Made to look like any standard lotion tube, this super sly contraption holds 8 oz of alcohol without anyone ever knowing. Let’s say you’re attending a summer music festival where outside alcohol isn’t allowed and drinks are way overpriced. Cue this guy. Because who’s going to stop you from bringing sun protection into an event? Exactly.

This sneaky tube will most likely work in your favor, so long as you don’t drink straight out of it. That might raise suspicions.

Sneak Booze with Awkward Tampon Flasks

tampon-flask

For folks that always try to sneak in booze to the movie theater, Disneyland, work conferences, etc. there’s a cool little product for you on Amazon’s “Home and Kitchen” department.

Sorry, guys, but this one might only help out the ladies as a five-pack of “Tampon Stealth Flasks” provide a hiding spot for alcohol that can easily fit in a purse, or even your back pocket.

Granted, it means you’ll eventually have to pull out the tampon flask and get some funny looks when you drink out of it. However, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Not sure what the male equivalent to this incognito flask might be, but somehow a Jockstrap Stealth Flask doesn’t sound like a good idea.
