Unless you’ve been living under a rock these last few months, you’re likely aware of the recent titanium fad in the survival industry. All over the globe, consumers are spending millions on titanium forks, spoons, knives, flasks, bottles, pots, pans, and more. Even I am guilty of it.
Unlike most fads, there is good reason for society’s recent interest in titanium. Titanium is an incredible metal. It’s strong, lightweight, aesthetic, and resistant to virtually all forms of corrosion. It’s also one of the most biocompatible metals on the entire planet which is why you see it used for surgeries and implants so frequently.
But, there is a problem. Titanium isn’t all that practical. The manufacturing process is incredibly expensive and slow. As a result, it demands a very high price – much higher than stainless steel.
While it is certainly true that titanium is stronger than most common forms of steel, the reality is that it doesn’t matter. Steel products just compensate for the strength difference by being thicker whereas titanium doesn’t have that option due to how prohibitively expensive it is to produce.
Despite all of this, titanium products have developed a cult following over the last few years. The fact that titanium products can not easily be mass produced seems to resonate with consumers. You can just tell when you hold it: there is an element of detail and craftsmanship that you simply wont find in run-of-the-mill steel products.
Introducing The OBPS Titanium Flask
While it doesn’t make economic sense to build a crane out of titanium, backpackers and survivalists understand the added benefit of using titanium equipment to help lighten their load. For this reason, we are proud to announce the release of our first titanium product: a flask
Here at Outback Pitstop, we believe that one of the primary reasons for pursuing a life in the outdoors is to get away from society. Corporate logos and advertisements have no place in the outdoors. This is why we have decided to not print any kind of logo, branding, or marking on our flask. It’s just bare titanium.
