There\u2019s nothing worse than pouring your favorite drink\u2014alcohol or not\u2014into a flask, packing it inside a backpack, only to discover it leaked everywhere. That wasn\u2019t an issue with the YWQ Hip Black Matte 8 oz Flask, making it the best flask for personal use indoors and outdoors. Thanks to its top grade steel, it even has anti-rust and anti-corrosion properties.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - YWQ Hip Black Matte\r\nA great flask with a leak-proof design made of high quality stainless steel that\u2019s anti-rust and anti-corrosion, wrapped with an appealing matte black finish.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe YWQ Hip Black Matte Flask came in handy for those quiet nights. Downing a strong drink was easy, as was pouring. And the funnel great for refilling it again and again. What impressed us most was the lack of leakage; 100% leak proof design ensures your drink never leaves the bottle unless you want it to, unlike other 8 oz stainless steel hip flasks like Gifts Infinity 8 oz Hip Stainless Flask.\r\n\r\nAs durable as it is, we did notice discoloration in the beverages. It showed up the first few times used, but soon dispersed and didn\u2019t happen again. We recommended no longer than 12 hours or, at the very least, give it a really good clean before use.\r\nDesign\r\nThe YWQ Stainless Steel Matte Black Flask made several great design choices that put it ahead of the best flasks on our list. As a high quality stainless steel flask, it\u2019s anti-rust and anti-rust. You won\u2019t be downing strange chemicals like you might with a plastic water bottle. And the matte black finish is a nice departure from the plain stainless steel look.\r\n\r\nUnfortunately, the plastic cap is weak. Overall it was leak-proof, but with enough use it will become brittle and break. We had the same issue with the Stanley Classic Easy Fill Wide Mouth Flask, though with that stainless steel one, plastic bits showed up. The YWQ did not have that problem.\r\nValue\r\nThe YWQ Hip Black Matte 8 oz Flask might appear cheap\u2014$10 is cheap, after all\u2014but its performance and design feel like it\u2019s double the price. There\u2019s small problems that can be overlooked, but it\u2019s overall a great product. We loved the matte black finish most of all. Seeing a plain-looking steel flask was getting tiresome. Even though the Top Shelf Stainless Steel Flask is $2 cheaper, the YWQ has style. We would pick the YWQ any time of the day.\r\nYWQ Hip Black Matte Wrap Up\r\nBreaking away from tradition is a nice touch the YWQ Hip Black Matte Flask does best. Flasks don\u2019t always have to be the same grey steel finish, even if it is, technically speaking. It still has that tough steel build that makes it anti-rust and anti-corrosive, while being leak-proof. It would\u2019ve been better had the plastic cap been replaced with something stronger.
