i had a thermos one from tesco a few years back, it had the glossy silver inner. that started to peel into my soup one day
We have various, the one I use most is a Lifeventure TIV. Weight and bulk are good for actual flask volume, it works, not too dear, available in several sizes to suit, errrr, that's it. If I lost this one I'd probably get another.
Heres one some of you may not have heard of; Kelcan. I have two and really rate them. Lightweight, basically indestructible, (i have abused mine) keeps drinks hot for at least 18 hours i would say.
Only downside is the lid doesnt double as a cup, which for most isnt a real issue anyway.

I got my Zojirushi in TK Maxx, just to confuse things...

Hadn't spotted that. Posted from my Galaxy S2 phone. It has annoying spell correction since I updated the OS on it. Mind you, wasn't much better before the update.
In case anyone wonders I meant Lifesystem TIV. Those nice black ones which claim 12/24 hours insulation and come with a push button and a second screw only cap.
zojirushi and elia are two brands i can recommend.
i've found flasks to be much pot luck.
cheap ones are cheap for a reason.
expensive ones are more likely to guarantee they'll work to expectation - more or less if they don't self destruct.
"light" flasks are light probably because they won't keep anything hot. a lifeventure one i had was light and kept stuff hot for a good two hours. the zoji is heavier and keeps stuff hot for at least 17 hours (gave up measuring the temp after that) and realistically when using the contents throughout the day a good 8 hours plus.
since acquiring mine i haven't looked back and was money very well spent. the linked thread below is now 5 years old! is it really that long i've had my flasks!

For those with the thermos ultimate ones what are they like for durability. Had aladdin ones for ages but they are quite heavy in comparison so looking for something lighter but still fairly tough. Ta
