I plan on buying one of those, too. Amazon sells them for $5 cheaper btw. Looks like they make great growlers.

Do you need it to be insulated?

Just got back from my local dealer getting a new tire and they carry these. I purchased a 40oz to try them out. The 40oz fits in fuel bottle holders so that's a plus.

Go down to the nearest brewery, fill that sumbish up, take a bumpy road home, give it a taste an report back!

Maybe Wolfman willl make a 64 oz pouch to hook on to his bags.

mathews, you need some splainin'

i have several of these in various sizes. mine are made by hydroflask.
they are insulated in an of themselves. hot OR cold they will keep for more than a day easy, i have had ice in them for almost 3 full days, refilling with cold water.

beer does pretty good in them as long as you completly fill it,, little air as possible, it sure is nice to ride into camp and have a very cold beer, ice tea or whatever after a long ride. for the moto money would be better spent on two 32oz'ers so you can have two nights beers, unless you'll do the 64oz. in one night.

they are awesome and i dont have any regrets buying them, you should know though, they are the same thing as a stanley vacuum insulated coffee mug, prolly have one of those laying around already.

Thanks for the info, ill look into then 32oz ones. I have something like a Stanley but its thermos brand. Maybe the two 40oz would be the trick. If they fit in the wolfman fuel bottle holsters then that's a plus too.

Hydroflasks are wonderful. As stated before, they will keep hot liquids hot for 12-16 hours in my experience. The less you open it, the longer it works. Cold stays cold even longer.

I like that they are stainless and powdercoated. Very durable. Well worth the money and work better than most thermos type containers.

I use the 20oz. Big enough for a tall microbrew. The regular cap holds pressure on any carbonated beverage for days. I have had some taverns balk at filling the smaller size like a growler because they think it is too much like a to-go cup. Great product.
