Nissan or Zojirushi are the best "Hi-tech" thermos systems on the market.

I have a pint Nissan I can carry in my jacket, handy for a quick shot of Joe. They run about $30. If you snoop some you can get the 1.1 quart for about $30. www.cafemaison.com/cafemaison/mugs.html

The deal I really love is my Zojirushi air-pot. Oh son, that bugger keeps hot stuff hot for days, no kidding!

I bought mine in Fargo at the Red River Coffee Co. The store is in West Fargo across from the Sta-Mart in that new mall. They got good beans there too, Uf-Da. They have a web site too I think?

I use mine a lot while guiding. It hold a bit more then a pot of coffee and if you pre-heat it will boiling water it will seriously last 2 days and be nice and warm. I can set it on the ice and it will not melt snow, so they hold there heat very well.

They run about $45. Stainless steel outer case and a locking cap, well built and easy to clean. No glass, all hi-tech so no worries about dropping it. I bash mine around all the time, still works great. A good investment with a solid warranty.

Nissan Stainless hands down! Since I have had one, my coffee stays hot twice as long as it did in a Stanley-and I carried one for years. The stainless is a true vacuum bottle. When you tap on the side you can feel it hum......T

BWE and Tbone,

I've got a question for you on the Nissan products. How durable are they? I had a Nissan travel mug that was bent and broken after just a couple of months of use.

My Stanley SS thermos is indestrucable. How about the Nissan thermos?

Nice to know you're a coffee geek, BWE....that makes two of us.

The Nissan Stainless takes a pretty good beating. I've had mine for three years and it goes with me everywhere. It has a dent or two in it alright, but no decrease in performance. Yep, I know the Stanley's can take a beating too. But these stainless jugs keep stuff hot a lot longer. I bought mine at Gander on a closeout sale. It was already dented and I got it for less than 1/2 price. Didn't care about the dent. I think the difference is the vaccuum between the fluid part and the outside. Anything like insulation between there can conduct the heat out of the fluid. Like Eddy said, just fill'er up with hot water before you put the coffee in and you're set........T

Nissan.
According to my wife, I have had my Nissan thermos for close to 10 years. She gave it to me for Valentines day way back when.
If you take the years of use devided by the cost, it is money well spent.
This past weekend I filled it with hot coffee after I emptied the hot water. This was at 4:30 A.M. I poured the last cup of coffee out of it at 5:00 P.M coming off Lake Winnie and it was still hot, not warm, hot.
Good Luck...

I always wondered why they dont fill the hollow portion of the thermos with some sort of insulating foam?

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
