good thermos for hot and cold drinks

I travel some in the winter in the midwest and have not in the past few years been able to find a thermos that would keep anything hot in the winter. does anyone recommend one? I hate to keep buying themos's and find out they don't work. thanks

I use these. I think they come in a 34, 26 and 16 ounce versions.

They'll keep things piping hot for about 24 hours and warmish/hot for a couple of days.

And I find if I put ice cubes in there they still haven't melted 2-3 days later depending on the outside temps and how often you open it.

Funny, I was just looking into this. Check out the many reviews from REI here:
thermos at REI - Free shipping on orders of $50 or more

The Bullet has a cool color. We'll probably go down to the store to look at them since there is one in our town.

Back when I was still w*rking, I brought my own coffee every day in a very similar stainless steel Nissan Thermos bottle. Enjoyed doing that for years, and I still have it.

Regardless of where you get it, that seems to be the way to go. Look for those three words: Nissan, Thermos, stainless.

I use the LL Bean Vacuum bottle Found here. It is stainless steel and pretty indestructible.

i have an (20?) yr old nissan stainless steel lined thermos (similar to the one mentioned earlier in the thread) and it still works great.
personally i don't like ones with handles on the outside. they're more awkward than they are worth

Contigo travel mugs work great. You can get a 16oz AutoSeal pair at Costco.

Stanley makes great insulated beverage/food containers. With any of the products/brands they work much better if you pre-heat or pre-cool them.

For instance, our Stanley will keep hot tea very hot (too hot for me to drink) for 12 hours or more. Here's the drill: I pre-heat the container with hot water, dump out the water (or use it to make oatmeal or something), then fill the container with the freshly brewed, piping hot tea.

I suspect the same thing works for other brands.

The nissan thermos is really outstanding. keeps liquids hot for over 24 Hours. I am glad I asked the question on here or I would not have known what to look for. thanks for the help.
