    I had this flask turn up today from amazon;

    At 32 notes its a touch on the pricey side, but I'm fed up of having to buy a new cheap one every year. I filled it with boiling water at 11 this morning and its still scalding hot nearly 6 hours later even though I've opened it a few times and poured some out as in normal use. It should be a keeper.

    I've got plenty of beanie hats and gloves to keep the worst of the weather off too.

    What sort of prep are you guys doing?

    At a guess I would say three mate. It has a nice size cup on it. The flask is only 1.2L which is a bit small for a full day out, but I usually fill up a travel mug for a brew on my morning break after my first few cleans.

    I actually really enjoy the WCing in the winter, and I already have a wild camping trip booked for the winter so i love the elements. But one thing that makes the job great is being able to sit in the van and watch the world go by with a hot mug of tea in my hand.

    Can't put a price on comfort and staying warm. I'm 6"5 and my arms are long so I guess the reason my finger tips get so cold is the blood has a bloody long way to get to;)
