Filson Vermonter Flask, $325
Hand crafted in copper by Vermont’s Jacob Bromwell, then wrapped for safekeeping in the nearly indestructible Tin Cloth and bridle leather that made Filson famous.
Barbour Hip Flask, $59
Leather trim and the iconic Barbour tartan ensure this flask goes from fly fishing vest to tuxedo with ease. A captive lid means you’ll never lose it mid-sip.
This Austin artisan crafts clever flasks adorned in vegetable-tanned leather with contrasting hand stitching and branded with, among other things, your favorite spirit.
When every ounce counts, go with one of the lightest, strongest metals on earth. Titanium is also highly inert, so it won’t affect the taste of your whisky like plastic or steel.

Resembling a foil juice pack, this shimmering flask by Brooklyn design group The Principals has a luxe look and streamlined shape that slides effortlessly into a purse or pocket.
Classic Americana for the picnic basket or coat pocket, this rugged flask is surprisingly svelte. The attached cap reveals a wide mouth for easy filling—and easy emptying.
