FAQ's for Hip Flasks

The price of most of our items includes the cost of personalisation of a name, date or initials. If you exceed this with further text or imagery, you may be asked to pay a supplementary fee of £5-£10. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

We often get asked which flask is a 'standard' size. The 6 ounce flask is the most popular and is the size you often see on the high street. We recommend you take a look at our dimensions below to ensure you are ordering the right size for you (and your pocket!)

3oz flask: H7.2cm (excluding cap), H8.7cm (including cap) x W7.2cm x D2cm.

We are always happy to personalise your products. Each listing will display font options and you can simply let us know your desired personalisation when adding the item to your cart.

Our listings will outline the process for you for each design and give an indication of where the personalisation would best be placed, however this isn't set in stone. If you would like something different from what is shown, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us!

Your flask comes with a stainless steel funnel to help you decanter your chosen beverage into your flask. Please note, these flasks are designed for liquor only and not acidic (juices) or carbonated beverages.

We recommend cleaning the inside of your flask before use with your funnel and water.

Please keep away from hot water, including the interior of the flask.

Don't submerge or soak your flask in water.

Clean the inside of your flask with cold water before use and between refills. Once clean, leave the cap off for the flask to air dry.

Although most leathers are somewhat naturally waterproof, please avoid contact with exterior liquids to prevent any staining

Please note, leather is a natural product and so may include beautiful original markings from the animals life, such as scarring, welts heavier grains and more. These markings often add to the character of the product which all have a rustic quality. 

Most of our leathers are pull up leather or veg tan. We choose pull up leathers because of their rustic and unique qualities and colour variations - over time, these leathers can distress further and 'weather' however because of this they can also be easily restored. Simply apply some natural dubbin, in a gentle circular motion, to any scratches. We recommend using a soft cloth. Our veg tan and other leathers are incredibly resilient however they can benefit from the moisturising properties of natural dubbin too (as well as providing water proofing). 

Although most leathers are somewhat naturally waterproof, please avoid contact with exterior liquids to prevent any staining.
