There used to be a time when I’d tuck a koozy into my bag when traveling, because you never knew when you’d need one. Nowadays, they’ve become so ubiquitous that I can usually find one anywhere. The insulated sleeves designed to keep a can of beer or soda cool are perfectly low tech and easy to put in your pocket.


But low tech isn’t always the best tech, and when you have room to bring something along that will keep your drink cold far longer, why wouldn’t you? For folks who enjoy beverages in slim cans, like White Claw and some beers, or even bottled brews, the Hydro Flask 12-ounce Slim Cooler Cup is a solid choice.


Made with 18/8 pro-grade stainless steel that’s BPA-free and toxin-free, the Slim Cooler Cup has TempShield double-wall vacuum insulation to keep those cold drinks cold for as long as you’re drinking them. Even if you’re a slow sipper, the insulation protects temperature for hours. There’s a flexible collar to lock in the cold, which works with a wide range of cans and bottles. You can switch the collar to sit at the bottom of the cup when you’re using it as a beverage cup instead of a can or bottle cooler.


The Slim Cooler Cup is dishwasher safe, and also fits easily in most cupholders (remember, it’s not only for booze). The Color Last Powder Coat on the outside of the cup makes it easier to grip and use sweat-free, as well as extra durable.


The 12-ounce Slim Cooler Cup has been available in black or white, and Hydro Flask just launched new colors: seagrass, laguna, snapper (pink), and starfish (yellow). They list for $24.95 and are available on the Hydro Flask site. Pack them in your car the next time you’re going camping or to the beach.
