I've destroyed every single thermos I ever had. After giving up on them for a while, it has come to my attention that my intestines require frequent watering not to tie themselves into knots. Drinking cold water all the time is even worse.

Hence, I need a thermos. But - it needs to be tough. Like, EDC tough. Any ideas?

P.S. Willing to pay about 20-25 USD w. shipping to Israel.

The best, most durable thermos I've ever used or seen in use by others has got to be the Stanley double wall stainless steel thermos. They generally keep hot coffee hot for a good 6 to 12 hours depending on whether you pre-heat the thermos or not. I've only ever destroyed one, the others I've either lost or given away.

Here's the link:

I'd be happy to ship one to you but it's gonna cost more than what you're willing to pay. Cheapest prices I've seen on the Stanley thermos' are around 25-30 USD but that wouldn't include the shipping to Israel.

Can't you find an Amazon vendor that will ship one to you? or Ebay maybe?

Thanks for the offer.

Well, Gad Zooks on eBay offers shipping of other people's items with 5 bucks commission. I suppose now that I know what to look for, it's not gonna be a problem.

I had a Stanley, didn't really like it, although it is tough. I have a Thermos brand stainless that I have been using since 1975, it is still going strong. I carried it to work just about every day of the year, filled with either hot coffee or iced tea.

Similar to this one. Don't know about the shipping...

which ever one you buy i would suggest finding one with a wide mouth..i have the normal coffee thermos but find that the wide mouth really works for things like hot soup..i got myself a spoon that is used for milkshakes so i can eat oatmeal out of it.

Good idea. Makes it easier to put ice cubes in too, if you want iced tea...

I also have used the Stanley thermos bottle. I am rather rough on personal equipment and it is stood up extremely well.

I use the wide mouth soup model for my coffee (easier to fill up).

Thermos makes a pretty good stainless steel thermos.
If there is a UN base near you they should have them, but you should be able to find something suitable in the local kitchen supply stores.

Hey, did you know trying to clean stainless steel thermoses out with bleach kills them, I was so surprised to find that out.

and what is the plural for thermos?
