Klean Kanteen has always produce sustainable products for your hot and cold beverages, food and hydration needs. After years of research, the Klean Kanteen team has developed the next generation of lifetime use bottles, the TKPro.
What makes TKPro innovative?
The plastic-free and thermal bottle is sleek with a 360 degree pour through system. No matter where you start pouring from, the new pour cap allows your tasty beverage to pour without splashing or glugging.
I founds, pouring from the kanteen feels more high class, much like a sommelier at a fancy restaurant. Liquids can be poured into the stainless steel cap or into your favorite camping cup.
The TKPro has 18/8 food-grade stainless steel on its interior which allows you to change liquids with just a quick rinse of the interior, not a full washing. The cup comes off quickly with just two twists. The cap takes more effort to take off but that is due to the 360degree pour through construction and silicone. The whole system is incredibly easily to put back together.
The streamline construction of the TKPro allows for it to fit in your car, backpack or store within your camping gear.
The TKPro is coated in the Klean Kanteen patented Klean Coat. The Klean Coat is designed for everyday use and abuse. Applied using GreenScreen, the Klean Coat is chip-proof and lab tested to ensure it last 4x longer than traditional coatings. Your TKPro will look brand new 10 years from now.
The TKPro will keep liquids hot 20-38 hours and cold for 75-100 hours depending on the size of the TKPro. We tested the cold out this last weekend while hiking and camping. We filled the bottle with ice and water before departing and at the end of two days, the ice was still solid. This was after drinking and adding additional water to the Kanteen. As you can see in the pictures, it was incredibly smokey and hot. Hydration was key in this trip and we were happy to have the TKPro along.
The TKPro comes in 3 sizes: 16, 25 and 32 ounces. The integrated TKPro cups for the corresponding sizes are:
- Cup Capacity:
-16oz (0.5 L): 7.3 oz cup (9mm fill line)
-25oz (0.75 L) and 32oz (1 L): 10.3 oz cup (9mm fill line)
The TKPro comes in Shale Black or Stainless and will be available at REI and Sportman’s Waarehouse starting September 01, 2018. You’ll be able to find them everywhere on January 01, 2019. The bottles retail is for the 0.5 liter is $39.95, 0.75 liter is $44.95 and 1.0 liter is $49.95. Other bottles and accessories can be found on Amazon.com.
Klean Kanteen Straw
Protecting the oceans and streams for plastics has been on the forefront of many company’s mind and Klean Kanteen is no exception. Already providing you with high quality bottles for daily hydration, they have upped their game to ensure you travel with as little impact on the environment as possible. This is their Bring Your Own project.
We love these straws over other due to the silicone topper. We are a family of straw biters. The silicone easily compressing for the chewers in the house while preventing teeth from being chipped on the stainless steel.
The straws are comprised of the same 18/8 stainless steal you find in the TKPro and are dishwasher safe. They are best with the 16 or 20 ounce Klean Kanteen bottles. Straw lids are available for purchase as well. Right now, the straw easily fits into my regular cup lid.
Klean Kanteen straws are wide enough for you to easily sip your favorite smoothie, coffee, water and adult drink.
Klean Kanteen Straws come in 5-piece sets with 4 straws (all black, or multicolor) and a straw brush for cleaning, and retail for $9.95. The multicolors is great for traveling with multiple people, each person gets their color for the trip and BAM! No germ sharing. They are also a great idea for gift giving!

All products are backed by the company’s pledge to reduce our impact on the environment: Strong as Steel Guarantee.
“…We make products guaranteed to hold up to whatever life throws at them. If you are not satisfied with one of our products at the time you receive it, or if it doesn’t perform to your satisfaction, return it to the store you bought it from or contact Klean Kanteen for repair parts, a replacement, or a refund. We hope you’ll use (and use, and use) your Klean Kanteen bottles, cups, and canisters until there’s no life left in them. Many of our products are recyclable, too.”
