2020 TOP PICK: Why Stanley is STILL the Best Thermos Today

Recently, I swung by Academy Sports & Outdoors and picked up a Stanley PMI Legendary Classic Thermos for the low price of $29.95. I’ll be the first to say, this product is SEVERELY underpriced for its quality.

Weighing in at 2.5lbs, this thermos has 18/8 BPA-free stainless steel and comes with double vacuum insulation. The lid is designed to be leakproof and conveniently doubles as a drinking cup.

The Stanley Promise states that this thermos is guaranteed to keep your liquids hot for 45 hours (keeping the temperature “ideal” for 32 hours). I put this to the test and was NOT disappointed. After heating up a kettle of water, I filled my Stanley with steaming hot water at 4:00am. The NEXT DAY at noon (32 hours later) the water was still steaming. At 1:00am the following morning (45 hours later), the water was no longer steaming, but still very hot (the ideal drinking temperature for a cup of coffee, in my opinion).

Using the following criteria, the Stanley PMI Legendary Classic Thermos earned the following ratings:

  • 9/10 – Size & Weight (on the larger side for car travel)
  • 10/10 – Temperature Insulation
  • 10/10 – Design (something about that old-school feel just gets me)
  • OVERAL 9.5/10

Whether you’re an avid camper, first responder, blue collar worker, or just in the market for a new thermos, you will kick yourself for getting anything else other than a Stanley.
