I live in a pretty humid climate. Anytime I carry around a bottle of soda, or some cold water, the outside of the bottle gets covered in condensated water, that drips and gets water everywhere. I'm looking for a good waterbottle that's not too big, but has some kind of insulation or something else to capture/eliminate the condensation. Any one know of such a thing?

I'd like to be able to carry the bottle in my backpack with me, so it is always there, instead of only when I don't have anything else in my hands.

Thanks!

You need to look for a double wall flask/bottle.

I have seen double wall mugs, I don't recall any double wall bottles off the top of my head. Good luck.

Have you tried one of those neoprene sleeves that fit over the water bottle? Those absorb the moisture pretty well, plus they keep your drink cooler. I don't know where to buy them, but I always see companies giving them away.

It sounds like my old stainless steel "thermos" (Alladin, by Stanley) would do the trick. Its heavy, but then it does have a carry handle. Its built to last. Mine is old enough to go to college.

Hey Blitz,

Nice. I need some of those since moving away from water bladders.

And welcome to fire, new guy. Post an introduction over campfire when you get a chance. We are a friendly bunch (well, now that Ironraven is MIA).
