For decades, the thermos has been the go-to for keeping hot drinks hot everywhere from ski lodges to construction sites, but the technology behind vacuum insulated bottles is only getting better. Seattle-based MiiR consistently makes some of the sleekest, most attractive insulated drinking vessels available, and its latest release, the Tomo, which means 'friend' and/or 'companion' in Japanese, uses clever design to remind us why we carry comfort beverages in the first place.
Made of medical-grade stainless steel, the 33oz Tomo does pretty much everything you'd want a solid insulated bottle to do: the double-wall vacuum insulation keeps the liquids hot or cold for hours on end, and MiiR's sleek, leakproof 360 lid allows for pouring or sipping from any angle (the new lid fits all of the company's existing wide-mouth bottles as well as its Flip Traveler coffee mug, too).
Best of all, the thermos comes with two twist-off eight-ounce insulated mugs, which makes it easy to share a mid-hike hot cocoa or coffee with a friend (or maybe a chilly Bloody Mary on the chairlift if that's more your speed).
From the start, sharing has been a theme for MiiR, which is a certified B Corporation, a member of 1% for the Planet, and a Climate Neutral-certified brand. To date the company has donated over $2.6 million toward social and environmental causes across 26 countries. Plus, each of its products comes with a unique QR code that allows you to register your item and track where (and how) the company is directing its donations.
The Tomo is available in all-black or all-white colors that complement the bottle's already clean and minimalist design. And it's customizable if you want to add some text. The bottle is also BPA ("Bad Plastic Awfulness," in MiiR's words) free, and comes with a lifetime warranty.
