New Schwag at SC&K!

Hydroflask 18oz. Wide Flip Lid Thermos  
This is definitely one of my all-time favorite coffee tumbler/thermoses. Hydroflask really got it figured out with a flip top sipping lid that actually stays shut. Listen for the click and toss it in your day hatch or passenger seat without the worry of spilling your hot or cold beverage all over. Fill 'er up in the morning and enjoy a hot beverage in the afternoon if you like. This handsomely finished stainless steel thermos has a vacuum sealed double-wall, is BPA free, and comes with a lifetime warranty. Hydroflask is also a socially responsible company, partnered
with, where you can register and donate 5% of the proceeds to a charity of your choosing. You'll feel all warm and fuzzy every time you take a sip from one of these!
