How to Hold a Flask
Keep your flask close to you with a fancy holster. (a scotch flask image by timur1970 from

A flask is a metal canister that holds liquid and keeps it either cool or warm. Some people find the task of carrying a flask bothersome, especially if the flask must stay out of view. Typically, flasks contain alcohol, so concealment is necessary at certain functions. Aside from in your hand, there are other ways to hold and transport a flask. Options are for men and women alike.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Place your flask in hand. While this method is not desirable for social gatherings where flasks are deemed inappropriate, you might find yourself at an event where a flask in hand is welcome.

  2. 2

    Wear a flask garter belt. A woman who wants to conceal her flask can find flask pouches to tie around the thigh or hip. These types of holsters are typically silk or satin, but any non-snagging material will do. Lace versions can also appeal to a women's sense of style, and adventure, in the bedroom.

  3. 3

    Utilise a bicycle flask holster, which you can add as an attachment to your bike. This type of flask holder is perfect for a drinker on the go, who needs his hands to steer the bike. The holster is made of metal and provides a snug crevice in which to hold the flask.

  4. 4

    Wear a leather pouch or satchel. A sporran, which is traditionally worn with a kilt, also works well. These options sit at the waist and act a as a fashionable holster for the flask. The leather material offers an extra level of temperature control for the flask's contents.
