Stanley Adventure Crock The large capacity and ruggedness of the Stanley Adventure Crock make it perfect for camping, although you could certainly select it for day-to-day use if you need to carry an ample amount of potato salad, soup, or other foodstuffs. It could even work as an ice bucket. stanley-pmi.com

Editor's Notes

July 16, 2019:

At this time, we still like the Thermos Stainless King 68-Ounce as a fine option for many, since it's versatile thanks to classic styling that moves easily from the campsite to the office. And because the lid doubles as a cup, there are no usage hassles. We've also added the Hydro Flask Oasis as a top choice; it offers the robust construction that fans of the brand are familiar with, in a large-capacity vessel for either hot or cold drinks. We like the thoughtful design of the lid, as well, which opens two ways to make pouring and cleaning simple.

As for sportier options, we still think the Aquatix Double Wall Insulated is a good choice, and we've opted to add the budget-friendly Igloo Proformance, too. They'll keep you hydrated through long practices or gym sessions, when a standard water bottle just won't do. The Igloo model has nifty chain link hooks in the handle as well as a rubberized grip, both nice touches.
