About a month ago, I bought an additional 2 acres that joined my original homestead property. It’s a ways away from my tools and equipment and more importantly, water!
The land needs a lot of hard, labor intensive work and consequently,I drink a boat load of water. I had been using a 1 Qt insulated jug and it kept the water cold for about 4 hours in Louisiana sun. I tried a couple other cheap alternatives but I found none of them to be satisfactory.
I decided to consult the oracle (Amazon) and see if I could find some “yeti” type water jug.
I FOUND IT!!!
This is the best 2 Qt. water jug I’ve ever owned. The length of time it keeps water and ice,well,,,,, water and ice, is phenomenal! I filled it up with ice from the fridge and then filled it up to the top with water. I worked on the land in the hot Louisiana sun for about ten hours. When I called it a day and went home,it still had ice! That is ten hours of being exposed to the sun, hanging of the shifter on my garden tractor.
That night, I drained and washed the jug. I put the jug ,with nothing in it in the freezer overnight. When I got up the next morning, I once again filled it with ice and water. I had it outside for about ten hours again. When I came home, I opened it up and realized I had only drank about half of the water and there was still a ton of ice in it.
I stuck the jug in the fridge and drank off it all the next day and it still had a few cubes left in it at the end of the day.
The jug has a neat handle on it that gives a real good grip to tip a half gallon jug back and drink from it, which reminds me. The spout is designed for drinking from the jug. When you close the locking spout cover,it does not leak.
I can’t say enough good things about this jug and for 20 bucks shipped,it didn’t break the bank. I give it five strips of bacon!
