The age-old dilemma facing hikers and campers everywhere. How can we make our packs lighter? What can we dual-purpose in our packs. It’s a familiar sight. Backpackers with the water bottle attached to their pack. Inside? A cup for other beverages.
Not to go all Morpheus on you, but what if I told you there was a world where you could have both? A stainless steel water bottle that transforms into a cup. Hell of a rabbit hole, but true.
And it looks good too.
The Pint is answering your calls for a water bottle that pulls double duty as a cup. Why? Because water isn’t the only thing we drink on the trail. We also drink coffee, tea and other things…
Alcohol. Who can listen to the same stories over and over and not start drinking?
Designed by Stable Goods out of San Francisco, The Pint offers up functionality and design. Two color options are available – granite and carbon. How much can it hold? The Pint holds a pint of your favorite beverage. Half-gallon didn’t have the same ring to it. Before the mad rush to Google, a pint is 16 fluid ounces.
The bottle features a double wall stainless steel insulation. Your water and beer stay cold, or your coffee stays hot. Hate finding a bottle brush? The Pint is easy to clean. Remove the base and scrub away.
Each plastic piece on The Pint is BPA free and promises to hold up to the rigors of whatever hike you throw its way.[divider]The Pint Kickstarter[/divider]
With 28 days left in its Kickstarter campaign, The Pint has blitzed its initial funding goal of $10,000. Currently, the campaign is sitting just below $18,000 with 360 backers.
What about price? You won’t break the bank. One Pint will set you back $26 with your choice of granite or carbon. Don’t want your buddy feeling left out? $45 will get you the Buddy Pack of two Pint bottles.
Outfitting an expedition or have the mentality of twenty is one and one is none? A twenty pack will set you back $360.
The ship date is set for February 2016. Be sure to check out the Kickstarter campaign for more information.
