As a visionary, Robert Seals knew something needed to change with the materials commonly used in making water bottles.
Ahead of this now known learning curve, Robert opted for stainless as a healthier alternative.
Born in Chico, California, Klean Kanteen has been improving overall human and environmental health, one water bottle at a time.
After Seals’ time at the helm, the Cresswells would drive Klean Kanteen into the future from 2005 to the present. Making great vessels for carrying essential fluids has been what they do best.
Aside from human health benefits, there is also a more substantial reduction in single-use containers to be considered. Americans are estimated to use over 100 disposable containers a year for drinking water. A single person would avoid wasting tens of thousands through the use of a Klean Kanteen over a lifetime.
Klean Kanteen holds a membership in 1% For The Planet as well and is a Certified B Corporation. With genuine authenticity and style, Klean Kanteen walks the walk, and they talk the talk.
If you are involved or have been inside any aspect of the outdoors industry in the last 10-20 years, then you have probably seen them somewhere. Klean Kanteen offers more than water bottles. Growlers, tumblers, single-wall, double-wall, insulated bottles, and cups can be found available in many colors and capacities.
We had the opportunity to try some of these excellent containers for ourselves and really enjoyed them. Built to last, these are the type of container that with care will last indefinitely.

Klean Kanteen Insulated Food Canisters Review
Beyond the attractive 18/8 food-grade stainless steel construction, Klean Kanteen’s insulated food canisters feature a brilliant eco-friendly design. If you were to cut one of the lids in half, you’d find recycled corrugated cardboard inside being used as insulation.
Not only is it comparable performance wise to traditional foam, but it’s also hermetically sealed to keep out moisture.
Packed with recycled insulation, these leak-proof canisters manage to keep your frozen and hot meals at the ideal temperature for hours and hours. My first experience using one was after a long hike here in Boulder, Colorado. I had packed the smaller 8oz canister with some piping hot beef stew and left it in the car. After hiking for a few hours and returning hungry, I twisted off the lid to the food canister, and my meal was still plenty warm to eat. Since then, I’ve managed to cook and store all sorts of meals and snacks in these rock-solid food canisters.
Each Klean Kanteen insulated food canister features their unique Tare It Up bulk ready and grease pencil friendly design element. Of course, their also BPA free, and feature rounded inner corners which make cleaning them out an absolute breeze.
Paired with the Climate Lock double-wall vacuum insulation, the leak-proof lids performed up to my standards; offering a 100% leak-proof design. And while I’m one to appreciate no leaks, what I really came to love was the durable 18/8 stainless steel construction.
These food canisters are quite simply put, bomb-proof. In other words, they were made for the harsher conditions of the great outdoors. I love knowing that won’t crack or shatter if I drop them against a hard boulder or jagged-edged rock.
With 8 and 16 oz. variations, not to mention, insulated and non-insulated versions, Klean Kanteen has definitely won my heart over when it comes to their top-notch outdoor and travel gear.
