8 g (0.3 oz) whisky flask on 08/15/2006 02:30:12 MDT Print View

Not really a MYO project, but i thought it would fit better in this forum than the gear forum.

When i go hiking i really enjoy to zip a wee bit of whisky in my sleepingbag before going to sleap. I thought long and hard before i finally found something whick is light enough to serve as whisky flask. Here are some pictures:

Sorry for the poor quality of the pics, but my webcam isn´t very high res. I also put my mouse and keyboard in the pics as reference for the size.

This package contained yoghurt, i ate that, cleaned the package and now i have a 8 g (0.3oz) 200 ml (6.8 fl. oz) whisky flask. I don't know if you can get something similar overseas (i'm from europe) but i've also seen these packages being used for orange juice etc.

Ssjogo 使い終わったパウチ容器を

ジョーゴとして使う。

先ず始めに、よく洗う。次に底部分を切り取る。

中側の芯を切り取る。

小さい注入口のボトルなどに差し込んで自立できる。


キャップに小さい穴を開けて、さらに細い口先にも応用できる。


不要なときは丸めて収納できる。

At first I wash it well. I cut a bottom share next.


I cut an inside core.


I insert it in bottles of a small injection mouth and can become independent.


I open a small hole to a cap and can apply it to thinner lips.

When I am unnecessary, I round it and can receive it.

Met a couple hiking that shared their scotch with me at the summit (thanks, guys!) out of a Platypus - nominal cost ($4.50), only slightly more weight at 0.7 oz, , widely available, no taste from the container, and no cleaning involved. But then I guess it would only qualify as "BYOG"...

Yukiosan, larger picture please? on 02/06/2007 01:25:28 MST Print View

Yukiosan, I am interested in re-using these useful containers also. Can you post a larger picture please. I have not figured out how to remove the inner straw without ruining the package.

Park City IceWater Company sells water in a 16 fl. oz. flask of similar design. Weight is 0.5 oz. I used a bent paperclip to remove the small internal valve.
