The Jerry Can Hip Flask is such a simple and obvious idea that I’m a little annoyed at myself for not having come up with it years ago. Each of these flasks is based on the design of the original German Jerry Can that pre-dates WWII, but it’s been sized down to hold 6 ounces (175 ml) of life sustaining firewater.
The flask is made from stainless steel and it has a screw top to ensure a nice whiskey-tight seal. It measures in at 2.95″ by 1.57″ by 3.86″, so it’ll fit neatly in most pockets.
