Well, a regular water bottle is not going to cut the mustard if you would like to look cool and maintain a certain image, as the $19.99 TGX Tactical Flask gets the job done with plenty of style.

I suppose can say that this Thinkgeek exclusive is a drinking apparatus that is perfect for all your tactical drinking needs, if there is such a thing. Sporting integrated MOLLE webbing, all that you need to do is to fill up this flask with 6 oz. of your favorite beverage and toss it in your bag, and you’re good to go. Alternatively, you can also opt to slide it onto your belt, or to make use of a clip in order to hook it to your favorite accessory’s MOLLE webbing.The flask’s case comes with webbing as well, which will then let you hook something to it if the need arises. Made out of stainless steel, the flask sports an elegant matte black exterior with a textured PVC accent piece and a screw-on cap. While it is BPA-free, do take note that this is not dishwasher safe.

icecapAh, there is nothing quite like having your glass of wine at the end of a long day at work, or even to celebrate an occassion. After all, research has shown that wine is definitely good for your health, if drunk in moderate amounts, that is. The thing is, you might want to have a little bit of extra help when it comes to drinking your wine the way it is meant to be drunk – and the $35 Ice Cap would fill in this role nicely.

Good wine, as we all know, needs to be served chilled, not to mention having it breathe for a bit. The Ice Cap will get the job done, but the marvelous thing about this is, you need not wait too long for that to happen, since the process can be expedited. The Ice Cap comes in the form of a kind of refrigerated funnel, where pouring your wine into the glass will see it cool down and aerate properly. Just place the Ice Cap in the freezer for a few hours, before putting it on top of your glass and pour your room-temperature wine. It will take a matter of seconds to drop the beverage’s temperature by up to 10 °C, now how about that?

Of course, if you are not one who likes cold drinks, but prefer that of a piping hot one, then the Vinnebago Cooler is also up to the task, although it is good to do so for up to a dozen hours, which should be more than adequate for the ordinary Joe if you were to ask me. This is made possible thanks to the revolutionary vacuum-sealed and triple-walled insulation design, which goes to show that having double-walled insulation is so passe these days. On the outside, it will have a sleek stainless steel surface complemented by a beautiful matte black finish.

However, if you so happen to have invited some friends over to your place and are going to have a smashing good time knocking back a few pints, why not make things look all the more professional with the £35.99 Beer Foamer?

All that you need to do is to pour a fraction of your beer into the base container, before emptying the rest of it into your drinking glass. Once done, place the beautiful brewery-style chamber on top and press the button to get the internal whisk going. It takes mere moments for a dense, rich and velvety foam to develop. Definitely one of the cooler beer gadgets out there!
