Hydration is essential for life. But there are some celebratory times where you may want to balance good hydration with cocktails. And to that festive moment, add music. It’s almost like how Carnival parades in New Orleans blend those excellent marching bands with a few tasty sazeracs, all at once.


You really have to be in the right time and place for cocktail drinking at a Mardi Gras parade, but are there any opportunities where you can combine a flask with a Bluetooth speaker? Imagine a case where you’ve got music in front of you, a drink in your hand, some more in your backpack, and yet a backup case in the trunk of your car, a few blocks away. You need something much more convenient. The VSSL Insulated Flask with Bluetooth Speaker lets you take your party to the street (imbibing responsibly, of course), all in one hand.


Made with durable stainless steel with double-walled insulation, the flask keeps your drink (8-ounce capacity) cold for up to 10 hours and hot for up to 5 hours. A pop-up drinking cap doubles as a carabiner that easily clips to packs and gear when you need it, and folds flat when you don’t. The cap doubles as a leak-proof flask and tumbler cap for both smaller port and larger pour drinking options.


The True Wireless Speaqua Bluetooth speaker end cap gives you five hours of playtime, and is weatherproof, in case you get caught in the rain. Power it up before the parade with the included USB-C charging cable, If you need to use the flask while the speaker is charging, there’s also an included flat end cap for that purpose.


After testing it out at home for a while, am I bringing this flask to Mardi Gras this year? You bet I am.


The Insulated Flask with Bluetooth Speaker lists for $150 on the VSSL site.
