ThermoFlask vs Hydro Flask
If you're at all familiar with the Takeya ThermoFlask, you can probably see how the comparison with it's better-known competitor the Hydro Flask is somewhat glaringly obvious. In the design, the look, even the name, Takeya has taken a few cues from the massive success of Hydro Flask. From our first encounter, we felt the Hydro Flask vs. ThermoFlask debate stewing in our gut. And why not? As it turns out, we're pretty glad they did. But we've been comparing the ThermoFlask to the Hydro Flask pretty much the entire time we've had a ThermoFlask. We even referred to the Thermoflask as a "budget...

Unfortunately, from our first searches for glass water filter pitchers, we were rather disappointed to find a remarkably limited selection! In fact, in the spirit of what we were originally looking for -- a glass water filter pitcher -- we came up empty-handed. But we did find one carafe which fits the bill and performs an identical function to a water filter pitcher. There a...
