VSSL Insulated Flask Adds Beats to Beverages for Ultimate Outdoor Experience

The new insulated drinking vessel features a built-in weatherproof Bluetooth speaker designed by Speaqua

ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia – Oct. 4, 2022 – VSSL, creator of premium gear that enables self-reliance in the outdoors, today introduced the VSSL Insulated Flask, the world’s first flask with an integrated Bluetooth® speaker. Designed to be the ultimate in premium beverage carry, the Insulated Flask offers double-walled and vacuum-sealed insulation to keep drinks at the proper temperature and a durable and weatherproof speaker endcap, making it easy to integrate a soundtrack to adventures. For the launch, VSSL partnered with Speaqua Sound Co., a coastal lifestyle audio brand, to collaboratively engineer a speaker endcap that threads directly to the unit’s base.

“We wanted to offer a better drink experience for your outdoor adventures,” said Todd Weimer, founder of VSSL. “There’s something so universally special about the experience of a cold beverage with some friends in a beautiful place at the end of a big day – especially if your favorite songs are playing in the background. The Insulated Flask is here to make these experiences more accessible – and more fun – than ever.”

The VSSL Insulated Flask features an eight-ounce, double-walled, stainless-steel vacuum chamber designed for temperature regulation. A patented endcap offers two drinking methods – via flask spout or fully opened lid – and an integrated magnetic, locking carabiner facilitates multiple methods of carrying and securing the flask in transit.

The ultra-durable, weatherproof speaker, collaboratively designed with Speaqua, offers a five-hour battery life, and allows users to pair up to two units to one device to create a stereophonic audio experience. The Insulated Flask also offers modular compatibility with VSSL’s other endcaps, allowing the speaker to be swapped for a compass, carabiner or flashlight endcap.

“The Insulated Flask is designed to celebrate the moments in-between – when you put down your fly rod or paddle and take a break with those alongside you,” continued Weimer. “It’s a tool for connection – an excuse to pause, laugh and toast to the adventures of the day, with the people you shared it with.”

The VSSL Insulated Flask (MSRP: $175 CAD) is now available for pre-sale on Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign offers the Insulated Flask at discounted pricing, including a VIP Special [$115 CAD], Early Bird Special [$130], Kickstarter Special [$140] and more. The Insulated Flask will launch nationwide in March 2023.
