Klean Kanteen's Insulated Pour Through.

The world is a tough place to be these days — luckily, though, there are some simple pleasures that help make getting through the day just a little easier. In fact, there are some niceties out there that, I’d argue, inspire tons of joy, from a kitchen essential that facilitates the flavors of summer all year long to a delicious-smelling bar of soap that saved my dry winter hands and a gluten-free pie crust mix that finally allows celiacs to enjoy holiday pies with their loved ones. Hey, it’s the simple things, right?

And, while we’re on the subject of simple, attainable wins, I don’t think it’s controversial to say that a major source of joy for tons of us out there can be found in a good ol’ bottle of vino. For me, a nice crisp white (yes, even in the colder months), will turn any week around — and I know I’m not alone in finding immense delight when enjoying a perfectly balanced glass of wine. So, if you’re one of the many out there (or know someone) who likes to have a glass or two, I found just the thing: Klean Kanteen’s Insulated Pour Through.

This wine-bottle sized canteen is a multitasking innovation worthy of every household, vino-drinking or not, because it can hold both iced and hot beverages. It will keep hot coffee, cocoa, or tea at temperature for 24 hours — yes, that’s an entire day — and it’ll keep an iced beverage frosty for 80 whole hours. And, if you’re wondering how it’s done, it’s Klean Kanteen’s special Climate Lock double-wall vacuum insulation system that takes the credit.

Inside the 90-percent-recycled, stainless-steel beverage holder, you could house a day’s worth of hot tea or a batched cocktail for a group — no need to worry about watering it down with ice. Now, if you’re me, the dishwasher-safe innovation is going to be predominately used for wine.

Because I’m somewhat picky about my bottles, I’ll often show up to a friend’s apartment with a bottle ready to share, but hopping on the subway with a bottle of wine in my bag is always a hassle. Pouring my pre-chilled wine into this canteen would save me from the possibility of a traditional glass bottle breaking (even if my klutzy self drops my bag) and my wine would undoubtedly stay nice and cool, even on the longer commutes. Plus, the chip-resistant matte finish means I wouldn’t have to worry about damaging the canteen’s good looks en route.

Oh, and don’t let me forget the main feature! Although you can drink from the Insulated Pour Through with the Klean Kanteen cap of your preference, it comes with a specialized 360-degree pour-through lid (duh, it’s in the name) that’s pretty awesome. It allows the beverage of your choice to flow freely through the top on any side without warming (for chilled) or cooling (for hot) whatever it is you plan on sipping. Count me in.

This unique bottle is a lovely gift for just about anyone — after you get a hold of one for yourself, that is. And, with the gifting season swiftly approaching, I’d say, why not get a whole bunch ahead of time? I know I’m going to!
