If you’ve had trouble getting your hands on a Stanley tumbler, rest assured you’re not the only one. Stanley tumblers—namely, the Quencher H2.0 FlowState Tumblers—are so popular that they’re difficult to keep in stock. Why? Their sleek design and ability to keep drinks ice-cold for hours make customers almost froth at the mouth.

If you follow water bottle and tumbler trends, you’ll know the Stanley 40 oz. Quencher H2.0 FlowState Tumbler went viral on TikTok a few months back.

But what about the infamous Stanley?

We were interested to know how Stanley Tumblers hold up, especially since the brand has specialized in camping gear and outdoor accessories for over a century (longer than other competitor brands).

What Is the Stanley Quencher FlowState Tumbler?

The Stanley Quencher FlowState Tumbler is made of 90% recycled stainless steel. The FlowState lid rotates to fully cover the top and reveal two openings: One for sipping and an additional tight-fit opening for the reusable, hard-plastic straw.

The tumbler has a comfortable grip handle for easy carrying, so you don’t have to worry about dropping your water or iced coffee on yourself when moving around. Plus, the base of the tumbler below the handle is narrower than the rest of the body, so it easily fits into most cupholders.
