TrailBreak EX Vacuum Bottle
The ultimate adventure flask, the rugged TrailBreak EX Vacuum Bottle is made from high-grade stainless steel making them rugged and durable. Easy to handle with cold or wet hands, the flasks feature a tactile silicone sleeve for improved grip and comfort. The sleeve also helps protect the bottle from bumps and knocks in the great outdoors. Thanks to its high-performance vacuum insulation, the flask guarantees to keep drinks pleasantly hot, perfect for a warming coffee break on your day out.
Designed with Primus' signature attention to detail, the TrailBreak EX Vacuum Insulated Bottle comes with two stoppers. One regular stopper for maximum temperature retention and one ClickClose-stopper. The ClickClose-stopper also doubles as a drinking stopper, making it possible to drink directly from the bottle. The lid doubles up as a cup and has a double-walled construction to keep your drink warm as you enjoy it. The TrailBreak EX Vacuum Insulated Bottle is available in a range of sizes and colours, making it easy to find the perfect gift.
From kit repairs to food preparation, a good knife is an essential addition to your bag when heading away from the beaten track. Available in three colours, the Primus Fieldchef Pocket Knife has a compact folding design that means it takes up minimal space and can be safely stored away when not in use. The knife has a practical 10cm, stainless steel blade that makes outdoor tasks easy and a clever mechanism enables you to 'lock' the knife in its open or closed position for maximum safety. The knife also has an attachment point in the handle so you can easily connect it to your bag or pack while on the go.
A nifty gadget sure to delight anyone who's been let down by soggy matches or a faulty piezo, the Primus Power Lighter promises to make lighting your stove or campfire a breeze. Easy to fill with standard lighter fluid, the Power Lighter's ergonomic design is comfortable to hold and clicks on with an easy push-down button. The lighter has a narrow flame for safety when lighting stoves and its flame temperature of 1300oC means lighting liquid fuels in difficult conditions is easy. Available in festive red or sleek black, the Power Lighter comes with a mini lanyard for easy attachment to a pack or hanging up at camp.
