So it’s officially chilly, most of us have pulled the layers out from the back of the cupboard and are turning to hearty one pots and sunday roasts. If like us you love the outdoors you’re also probably switching up what you put in your backpack.
Food is always a priority when you’re out exploring, it’s important to keep hydrated but also to eat so the energy levels don’t drop. A sandwich doesn't always cut it when you’re cold though so we’ve been looking at flasks and there are loads to choose from. Here are a few that caught our eye..
First up is the Black+Blum Food Flask in Olive.

This perfectly compact food flask is ideal for keeping your soups, casseroles and stews hot and on warmer days fruit salads and ice cream cold, so it’s great all year round. The vegan leather strap holds the spoon in place while you`re on the go. Currently on a special offer at Body Kind - we love it, practical, yet stylish.
Next up is the Thermos Stainless King Food Flask

The insulated lid doubles up as a bowl and it includes a full size folding spoon.

Looking for something a little different we couldn’t resist the Hydro Flask, insulated food jar. Made so that you can take your favourite meal anywhere.
