The smaller Microlite 500 Twist is similar in its build (weighing in at 7.7 oz), and in that it offers a stainless steel inner construction, providing up to 10 hours of hot and 20 hours of cold retention for its 17 fl. oz, while being 1/3 lighter than traditional models. It’s extremely thin, with 2mm walls, which creates a nice and compact footprint that helps keep the weight down and the packing versatility at a premium. The 500 Twist is the perfect size for any day trip that I take, yet has the durability to be used on hardcore wilderness ventures too. The screw top cap assists in creating a perfect seal with its leverage enhancing lobe that makes opening frozen bottles easy, so if you’re into skiing, GSI Outdoors’ has got you covered.
All in all, I came away quite impressed with GSI Outdoors’ bottles, and will continue to employ them on my camping trips and adventure trips where applicable, because they are build well, and have been designed even better, providing optimum value and versatility.
