Zojirushi Retro Water Bottle

1960s and 1970s check pattern flask

Those over 50 (and in Japan, that's about 60% of the population) are still amazed that the 1960s and the 1970s are now considered "retro," but it has been over half a century since Zojirushi first created the flasks it is reintroducing today as the Zojirushi Retro Water Bottle, so they definitely qualify! And the truth is that even if you're not acquainted with Japanese aesthetics and stylistic choices from 50-60 years ago, one look at these three bottles (they come in red, white, or yellow check patterns) is enough to tell you that this is a design from the past!

But even if the Zojirushi Retro Water Bottle has one foot in the past, the other is planted firmly in the 21st century! Made using the latest flask technology, these 480 ml (16.2 fl oz) bottles keep your hot beverage warm for at least six hours and your cold drink chilled for at least eight, and they do it without getting too much in your way since they are only about 6.5 x 6.5 x 21.5 cm (2.5 x 2.5 x 8.5"). Travel back in the time to when the Japanese were first discovering the joys of picnics with these beautiful retro flasks!
