Very cool. This would be great for a trip up north in a month to take brew without worrying about growlers breaking.

This product was popular in Alaska many years ago and then seemed to disappear. Glad to see it back. Great for backpacking and canoe adventures.

I figured out why my Eco Growler leaked the other day.
Partially due to probably not having much in it and some being foam.
THe cap would not screw on tight until I removed the bottom lid ring. Much like the ring on some gallon milk containers. AS soon as I took it off, it tightened up and no spill or seepage when inverted. So, It does work and would be great for any camping or outdoor adventures. :P
