VSSL Officially Launches World’s First Flask with Integrated Bluetooth Speaker
The new insulated drinking vessel is designed to be the ultimate in premium beverage carry
ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia – Nov. 22, 2022 – VSSL, creator of premium gear that enables self-reliance in the outdoors, today officially launched the VSSL Insulated Flask, the world’s first flask with an integrated Bluetooth® speaker. Designed to help adventurers slow down and savor the moment, the Insulated Flask offers double-walled, vacuum-sealed insulation to keep drinks at an optimal temperature, with a durable and weatherproof speaker endcap, collaboratively engineered with Speaqua Sound Co., a coastal lifestyle audio brand. The integrated speaker threads directly to the unit’s base and is also compatible with any VSSL system, making it easy to add a soundtrack to any adventure.
“We wanted to create something for the moments in between,” said Todd Weimer, founder of VSSL. “For several years now we’ve been making equipment to help adventurers survive the journey, but what about something that facilitates a moment to pause, to gather with friends and to enjoy the experience? That’s what our new Insulated Flask is all about.”
Originally introduced via Kickstarter in October 2022, the Insulated Flask reached its campaign goal within a matter of hours. Built from premium aircraft-grade aluminum, the Insulated Flask features an eight-ounce, double-walled, stainless-steel vacuum chamber designed for beverage temperature regulation. A patented, multi-use flask endcap offers two drinking methods – via flask spout or fully opened lid (which also allows for easy filling and cleaning) – and a magnetic, locking carabiner facilitates multiple methods of carrying and securing the flask in transit.
The ultra-durable and weatherproof True Wireless Bluetooth speaker endcap, collaboratively designed with Speaqua, offers five hours of battery life and allows users to pair up to two units to one device to create a stereophonic listening experience. The speaker can be used as a standalone device and additionally offers modular compatibility with VSSL’s other endcaps, allowing users to swap in a compass, carabiner or flashlight endcap.
“Outdoor adventure typically focuses on what comes next and what’s around the next bend,” continued Weimer. “Our Insulated Flask challenges this sentiment – it was created with an emphasis on slowing down and savoring the places we go with one another. It’s a multi-purpose tool designed to help you focus on – and enjoy – the present moment.”
The VSSL Insulated Flask (MSRP: $175 CAD) is now available exclusively on www.vsslgear.com.
