Stainless Steel Thermal Bottles & Glasses By MIzu Life

This year, in advance of the January Surf Expo, I started planning how I would schedule my time to see many of the exciting exhibiting brands that come to Surf Expo each January and September at the Orlando Orange County Convention Center.  My first booths to visit were those who contacted me in advance of the show.  One of those brands was Pukka.  These guys are best custom hat company at the show.  Check out my Pukka article coming soon. When Ryan O'Leary contacted me about stopping by, I noticed that his PR company also represented Mizu Life.

Mizu Life is a purveyor of stainless steel thermal bottles and glasses.

Because I have done past articles on many of the stainless steel thermal bottles and glasses, like Orca, Yeti, and Engel and after visting the Mizu Life webpage, I wanted to do this because; 1)  Mizu Life was not coming to Surf Expo and 2) their product line competed head to head with Yeti and Orca and all the other brands that have focused on the stainless steel thermal product market.  I reached out to Ryan about doing a Mizu product review.  This past week I received a assortment of Mizu Life product samples delivered by UPS.  In the box were a thermal coffee cup, a V10 thermal 1000 ml bottle and a set of wine glasses.  At first look, after a close inspection, the quality, fit and trim were very good - equal to Yeti, Orca and Engel.  That is important because the Mizu Life MSRP price points are in the same price range as Yeti, Orca and Engel products.

Here is my "First Look" review of the the Mizu Life stainless steel thermal bottle, coffee cup and wine glasses.  The V10 thermal insulated stainless steel bottle which holds 1000 ml is a member of the V-Series of small medium and large thermal insulated stainless steel bottles.  The V6 small bottle holds 19 oz / 560 ml, the V8 medium bottle holds 26 oz / 760 ml and the V10 large bottle holds 34 oz / 1000 ml.  The V8 is the perfect size for that 750 ml bottle of wine. What is missing from their lineup is a 64 oz beer growler.  They really need that to round out their V-Series thermal insulated stainless steel bottle products.

The V-Series bottles are perfect for taking chilled or  hot beverage on an outdoor trip.  Where the V10 comes with a handle that makes carrying the bottle easier the V6 and V8 do not.  As an accessory you can get looped V6 and V8 cap for each bottle that allows you to clip the bottle to your backpack.

 Mizu Life rates their V-Series bottles at 12 hours for hot beverages and 24 hours for cold beverages.
 I have been using thermal insulated stainless steel tumblers and bottles for about two years now.  For me, buy the time I have reached 4 hours, what ever beverage I may be carrying will be gone.  So the Mizu Life heat and cold rating will be perfect for my outdoor activities.

My wife Kathi and I take long car trips from time to time traveling from Florida to Fall Church, VA where my son and his wife live.  We always carry a special traveling box of kitchen gear.  In our box we have a set of plastic wine glasses because we have broken far to many glass wine glasses. Now we never have to worry about that again.  The set of two thermal insulated stainless steel wine glasses are going into our traveling kitchen gear box.  Mizu Life does make a thermal insulated stainless steel pint beer glass.  That would be perfect for me because I drink more beer on a trip than wine.  Wine is my wife's go to beverage.  We have a trip planned for March to Fall Church.  I will be able to give a full report on how the V10 and wine glasses perform.

In addition to their bottles and wine glasses, Mizu Life has a two thermal insulated stainless steel tumblers / cups the T20 and T30. Each comes with a plastic lid.  These are very similar in shape to the Yeti and Orca tumblers.  The T20 has a MSRP point of $29.95 and the T30 of $34.95. But today the T30 price has been reduced to $29.95 on their webpage.  Click HERE to see the price online.

The coffee cup is the perfect size  and shape to go into my backpack.  It is light enough to carry on weekend trips.  It will get a lot of mileage from this cup on future trips.

An interesting feature Mizu Life provides its customers is the ability to private label their thermal insulated stainless steel products. On their webpage you can see examples of the artwork that has been applied to their products for their  customers.  Click HERE to visit their custom bottle page.  They can put your logo on all their products.

All and all, I am really looking forward to running the Mizu Life wine glasses, V10 bottle and coffee cup through their paces.  So stay tuned for further updates.

Until next time, be safe in the sun and have a great day in the great outdoors.
