post #1 of 23
Thread Starter

Seems to me that the liquid refreshment inside the pole would freeze in a short time. Maybe an insulated coating would solve that problem- OR- drinking the beverage BEFORE actually skiing:

Au contraire, alcohol freezes at a very low temperature. Otherwise the booze box, hidden in the woods at Snowbowl would be useless.

Too bad they don't list the capacity.
I figure three to four shots per pole max.
Heck, every Scotsman knows the reason there are 18 holes on a golf course is because there are 18 shots in a pint of whiskey

Actually they each hold much more. Each pole houses 8oz

A standard shot glass is 1oz (there are many different size shot glasses but the standard size is the 1oz version)

soooo you are looking at 16oz of booze.

"Flask" poles have been around as long people were drinking and skiing . The do become heavy when they are full. It is a gimic, I would rather ski with a little flask..hypotheticly, of course.

Lining?

Only if they are lined with HDPE would they be any good. I Don't want my LaGavulin tasting like Al.

(bump)

Gmail served me an ad for this today, so I checked to see if it had been discussed here... Happily, it has been.

Seems like it's got to negatively impact the performance of the pole, huh? The weird inertia you'd get when the liquid swings around?

The Leki's hold 120ml each, no clue what that is in US numbers though...
post #15 of 23
120ml = 1/8 litre = about 4.5 ounces.
post #16 of 23
I thought a shot was 1.5 ounces. I used to ski with a half pint of schnaps once upon a time.

These poles would be a nice compliment to some of the consumable backpacks, sleeping bags, tarps or other gear made by this "company". http://www.ediblegear.com/

Heck Guys and Gals, just get a CamelBack and fill it with booze. Easier access and more volume. .......... Hic
