SWIG Hip Flask - Drink in Style8/20/2015
I the only one who thinks men with flasks who go on fishing trips,
logging in forests, climbing mountains or doing other manly things are
extremely cool? I don´t mean heavy drinkers, those who drink while
doing dangerous stuff, careless men - but those who are courageous,
brave, strong in both body and spirit and are responsible with drinking.
Those who take a sip after a hard days work and go home to their
families. I imagine them with a stainless steel flask inside their
blazer pocket rocking the image of a real old school manly man (but a
real cuddly bear inside - talk about imagination, huh?).
When guys from HIP SWIG Flask reached out to me and asked if I would test out their flask, I was thinking about the image this would gave my blog, as we do not promote drinking. But then I thought about all of the men in my life and how they live their lives. They enjoy their occasional drink and that is just fine with me, so why not do the review? This is an honest blog, after all. I really like SWIG web page and what they are all about. When you buy/get your SWIG HIP Flask, you get a SWIG® Flask Number, which you can claim and be a part of SWIG Society. You will then get an invitation to the annual party for SWIG® Society members (Upcoming: Monthly SWIG® whisky refills).and get a free 'SWIG® Society' pouch. So aside from being included in their cool "society" you are a proud owner of a awesome flask. When we got ours in the mail, I was surprised by how great the packaging was. It is a gift prepared to be given to someone you love and will appreciate it. These flask are marketed as luxury and have a price tag that fits - but not nearly as much as you would think. You can choose among lots of tweed pouches, leather ones or simply get a naked one. Whichever you prefer.
It is very beautifully made and its elegance would be a great reminder of a special day - if you give it to someone on graduation day, wedding, retirement.. You can choose the engraving option and personalise it for someone special.
I recommend checking out SWIG HIP Flask web page - and while you are there, read their story on how the company was established. A cool story about not giving up (when a lot of people would have), which makes them even more awesome.
