A reinvention of the traditional hip flask.
The classic hip flask is iconic – worth its weight in gold (or bourbon). The usual shape is rectangular, with a small spout, but we believed we could create a flask that celebrates its contents in a more user-friendly, enjoyable, easy to clean and durable way. The result is the Wingback 100ml Hip. With a seamless, cylindrical design it is reassuringly robust, resilient and adventure ready. Every flask can be personalised with a laser engraved inscription on the removable base, which also doubles as a handy bottle opener. At a 100ml capacity, it’s the ultimate travel companion, designed to serve you on any journey as well it does at home.

Considerations: The Black Steel flask retains all the precision and corrosion-resistant qualities of our stainless steel version, while the tungsten carbide finish increases the surface hardness 9x. Any marks it picks up from regular use should be easily wiped away. However, the surface is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. Anything harder than the surface (diamond, some ceramics) or really aggressive use will be able to scratch it. which is why we recommend keeping it in its cotton sleeve when not in use, and carrying your diamonds in another pocket. Internally, 316 stainless steel is food and dishwasher safe and won’t alter the flavour of its contents. Before first use, give it a good wash then fill it to the brim with your favourite tonic.
