AVEX launched two new thermal products that’ll be your best friend while in the great outdoors if you love your hot drinks to stay hot or cold drinks to stay cold for hours while playing outside. The AVEX 3Sixty Pour Thermal Bottle retains temperature up to 16 hours hot and 30 hours cold. The ReCharge AUTOSEAL® Travel Mug will keep your beverage hot for up to 7 hours and cold for up to 17 hours.
The 3Sixty Pour features a 360-degree pour spout interface which allows for a smooth pour at every angle. The lid is leak and spill proof with a half-turn valve for easy opening. The insulated lid also serves as a cup. The double-wall vacuum insulated 18/8 stainless steel body keeps cool to the touch with hot, and is sweat-proof with cold liquids. The base design grips table tops and reduces clanking, and the 3Sixty is 100% BPA-free.
The ReCharge AUTOSEAL vacuum insulated stainless steel tumbler was engineered with an airless space in between two walls to eliminate temperature change. The AUTOSEAL button operated lid automatically seals between sips to eliminate spills and leaks. The slide lock prevents the AUTOSEAL button from accidentally being pushed. There is a protective spout cover to help keep out dirt and germs, and the ReCharge has a reservoir drinking interface for an improved drinking experience.
The 3Sixty Pour and the ReCharge AUTOSEAL mug have become my favorite go-to thermal mugs. They’re both durable, sturdy products and it’s nice knowing I can put either one of them in my backpack and not have to worry about spills or leaks. I’ve had water bottles and thermal mugs in the past that claim to be spill-proof or leak proof only to open my pack and find some of my gear drenched in whatever I decided to drink that day.
So does the 3Sixty Pour really keep your drinks hot for up to 16 hours? The answer is yes. While your drink might not be piping hot during the last hour versus when you put it in the mug that first hour, you can still enjoy a cup of joe, hot chocolate or tea several hours later, and I’m not talking just lukewarm. The drink is actually still pleasantly warm/hot even up to the 16-hour mark. Whether I was outside or indoors, the heat stayed in the 3Sixty Pour, and after a full day of mountain biking, climbing and hiking, it was nice to sit back at camp and enjoy a hot cup of tea that had been made that morning.
On the flipside, I always keep some water close by for drinking, and having it be refreshingly cold is pretty important especially after being outdoors for several hours at a time. I kept the 3Sixty Pour full of cold water during the warmer days while on a weekend trip, and it was my backup for water after mountain biking on several occasions. While the water in my hydration pack got somewhat lukewarm, it was quite nice to get back to my car and rehydrate with cold water.
The ReCharge AUTOSEAL tumbler goes with me pretty much everywhere. I’ve used it for my office at work, out climbing, hiking, canyoneering, and anywhere I know I’ll need either some hot tea/coffee or a cold drink of water. My hot drinks have undoubtedly stayed hot for up to a 7-hour duration, and water is still ice cold after 17 hours. The mug has been banged up against rocks and trails, and has held its own, never disappointing in keeping my drink hot or cold.
AVEX already has top notch products, but with the ReCharge AUTOSEAL and 3Sixty Pour, their line just got even better. Both of these thermal products come highly recommended for your adventures, and with the holiday season right around the corner, it might not be a bad stocking stuffer.
The ReCharge AUTOSEAL comes in a 17 and 20 ounce. The 3Sixty Pour comes in 24 and 40 ounces. For more information on these products, please visit www.avexsport.com. They are available at backcountry.com and www.avexsport.com.
