I'm looking for a thermo bottle (~ 1 Litre/ 33 oz) to store tea, as soon as it is made (let's say its temperature will be around 100 Celsius/ 212 Fahrenheit).
Is there such a bottle? Would, let's say, a SIGG Thermo Bottle be able to do this?
I don't even need to maintain the beverage warm. I just need a portable recipient that withstands such temperatures (and doesn't leak/allow me to drink directly from it). The smaller/ lighter the better. It doesn't even need to be a thermo, as long as it withstands high temperatures.Nov 27, 2011 at 9:18 am #1805932
will hold 32oz and can take those temps,wide mouth:
weighs 6.2 oz for large mouth and 6oz for narrowNov 27, 2011 at 9:29 am #1805935

Any of the aluminum or stainless single-wall bottles will hold up to the temperature, but they will be very hot of course. You would need gloves to handle one and it would burn your lips. There are all kinds of stainless thermos/double-wall bottles out there. Klean Kanteen makes a wide mouth version with either a sealed top or a drinking top. Hydroflask is a newer brand that I have seen advertised but haven't laid hands on yet. They do make a 40oz version: http://www.hydroflask.com/products/40-oz-wide-mouth-stainless-steel-water-bottle.html. The Sigg model noted is just a typical stainless thermos with a drinking cup top.Nov 27, 2011 at 12:32 pm #1805987

I was going to hike up Mount Washington NH during snow season, so I had a 1-quart stainless steel Thermos bottle. I filled it with boiling hot tea at 5 a.m., and then I reached the summit at 1 p.m.
The windy weather was so bad that I desperately needed a hot drink. Unfortunately, the hot tea was too hot to drink. I had to pour it into the cup, then leave it on the ground for a minute before I could drink it. That ought to be hot enough.

In winter on snowshoeing trips a Thermos brand silver bullet works just dandy. So do any of them out there, even ones from Starbucks.
Are they light? No. But they work and are under $20.Nov 27, 2011 at 6:38 pm #1806077
If you want to enjoy your drink hot hours later, I'd highly recommend Stanley thermoses, or the similar products from REI. When using a good thermos, I found that it needed to be quite a few hours after filling before I could drink without worrying about the temperature. The Stanley products are amazingly bombproof, and quite easy to clean; the REI products I have experience with are just a good, and may be a bit cheaper.

We duck hunters have found Nissan stainless vacume bottles to be the most durable.
For some reason dropping a stainless vacume bottle will often compromise its vacume and you're left with just a bottle and virtually no insulation.Nov 27, 2011 at 7:43 pm #1806100

I have been using this for decades for winter camping.
Not sure if the OR caddie is still available. 1 Qt Nalgenes are. The Tibetan Terrier is optional.
Caddie = 103 grams (3.63 oz)
Nalgene = 109 grams (3.84 oz)
Total = 212 grams (7.47 oz)
Has wide mouth for easy filling and drinking. Very difficult to break or damage.Nov 27, 2011 at 7:55 pm #1806108

Nick, for very cold weather trips, I use the exact same rig, except not with the dog included.

Some of us "older" folks have gear like this that has lasted forever. That bottle doesn't even have a logo, just says "Nalgene" and all the BPA in it hasn't killed me yet :)Nov 27, 2011 at 9:47 pm #1806162
The OR bottle jackets have been significantly remodeled but are still available. Your Nalgene is HDPE, no BPA in it, and those bottles work great and last for years or decades. They don't work as well as the old Lexan ones with hot water since they become pliable and can't take as high a temperature.Nov 27, 2011 at 9:54 pm #1806163

I just bought 6 of these and they work great, they also have bigger sizes, but I like this one for it's size/weight for winter hiking, and you can't beat the price right now.Nov 27, 2011 at 10:21 pm #1806171
I thought I was living on the edge. Are the clear hard plastic Nalgenes the ones everyone is concerned with?Nov 27, 2011 at 11:18 pm #1806187
Yes, Nick. The Lexan ones were the smokey grey that became really popular when they started coming in funky colors. They contained BPA. Their replacement can't take as much heat and seems more brittle to me although I haven't tested that. I use my 18 year old white ones whenever i want something more robust than a recycled PET bottle and still use my 15 year old Lexan one for warm stuff.Nov 28, 2011 at 3:30 am #1806203
But it looks a lot like he wants something that doesn't necessarily keep his tea hot at all. In this case any lightweight bottle with the recycling number 5 for PP (polypropylene) will work fine.
It melts at about 160-180 C, so 100 C boiling water is fine. These are a bit difficult to find, but they are around.
Of course the other option is to use either a Platypus bladder or a Nalgene Canteen,if you're happy to go soft sided. They'll both take boiling water.
