GSI Outdoors – Microlite 1000 Twist


Better than any water bottle on the market, the GSI Microlite weighs the same as the cheap plastic bottles holding 33 ounces of liquid, nearly indestructible and can keep ice for what seems forever. On multiple occasions this season I errantly left a cold drink in my bird vest overnight, only to find it still iced and chilly the following day. Though I’ve not tested it with hot drinks, I suspect the performance is the same. 

The bonus when running bird dogs and the reason I got the Twist in the first place, on hot days when dogs run the risk of over heating, I’m able to carry ice and super-cold water long distances from the vehicle. I now have the option to use ice to help cool an overheating dog. I opted for the high-vis green to add some punch to my blaze orange, though the black or stainless can give you the same performance while less eye-catching – $35.
