Carry a slice of Original Stormtrooper in your jacket pocket with the Thumbs Up Original Stormtrooper-Hip Flask. Made of stainless steel – this hip flask is quality through and through.
This flask fails at virtually every factor you’d wish to consider. Firstly, and most importantly, there is harsh marring on the inside of the flask from welding or perhaps brazing (it’s difficult to tell as it obviously has a narrow opening) — I hope it’s also inert & food safe! I certainly won’t be drinking from it to find out.
As if I needed to add further issues, I’ll briefly say that it is of the most flimsy, imprecise construction. The hinge pin is too small so that rattles around. The cap simply sits in a hole on the bracket with a groove cut in the cap so that it fits but cannot slip through. It is several mm too tall so that it too rattles around. Furthermore, the cap is not threaded… Instead, a sort of plastic bush has been inserted and that is what’s been threaded. The sizing & position errors also mean that the cap at its tightest does not look to be on properly. You cannot tell by look whether it’s barely on or completely on so you’d have to be constantly mindful to check as you set it down or put it back in your pocket.
Thumbs Up Original Stormtrooper-Hip Flask Review
The seam where the top has been attached hasn’t been left in the state of the inside (presumably they knew they couldn’t get away with being that obviously lazy and slapdash) but it’s simply been ground to a rough chamfer. Not a consistent one and there are gouges which are either clumsy grinding or perhaps porous welds being revealed. It also has not been polished so it does not match the rest of the flask. The bottom seems to be the same but far less noticeable obviously.
Overall, I wasn’t impressed by the Thumbs Up Original Stormtrooper-Hip Flask at all.
