Welcome liquor-lovers….you are among friends here! Forgive the pun but hip flasks are really hip at the moment and that’s why we have compiled a list of the coolest hip flasks to satisfy your discrete-tippling needs!
There are tons of occasions when a shot of your favorite liquor is necessary! Whether it’s to warm the cockles on a brisk evening, a sneaky swig at the local cinema, or maybe a cheeky sip or two while hunting or fishing.
Our recommended solution, if you are partial to some liquor on-the-go, is to treat yourself to a cool hip flask which can be stashed away in your backpack or pocket.
There is a huge array of hip flasks available in these boozy times with some being designed with a particular purpose in mind, but most hop flasks do one thing….to get you slowly “pissed” wherever you may be!!!
Hip flasks were originally made from of pewter, silver, or glass. Now, most are made from stainless steel with some still using pewter. A few manufacturers have started to make them from plastic so as to avoid being found by metal detectors!
Hip flasks wary wildly in shape but are usually contoured to match the curve of the wearer’s hip or thigh. This ensures maximum comfort and discretion (this kind of design is also known as a kidney flask.)
Some flasks come with “captive tops” which are small arms that attach to the top to the flask so drunken fools don’t lose the top when it is taken off! Some flasks come with tiny cups so you can share your liquor with buddies but traditionally, the booze is consumed directly from the flask.
With that in mind, we have scoured our boozy planet to bring you the coolest hip flasks in the booze-o-sphere!
