We don't pretend that we're the first to come up with the idea of using glass to store our precious libations on-the-go. Glass flasks were actually the most commonly used material after mankind moved passed storing fermented/distilled beverages in animal skins, and before metal work became so common place they started making flasks from it. After a terrible experience drinking forgotten whiskey from a metal flask we scoured the internet in search of a glass flask, and could only find these relics on Ebay from the golden age of flasks. Hence, we began our quest to design the modern glass flask and bring quality drink-ware to those who love their precious spirits.
There are several benefits to our modern glass flask design beyond preserving the flavor of its contents. The glass window not only allows you to feel confident that your flask is clean, it also helps you prevent overfilling. Most importantly, you can see how much liquor is left so you know when to refill, and of course, the ever important decision on whether to share.
While purchasing liquor from the store, have you ever seen it packaged in a metal bottle? No? We didn’t think so. That’s because metal alters the taste and diminishes quality. For years, the only option on the market has been metal flasks forcing patrons to abuse their precious spirits. Well, now you have the choice.
We have the modern soft touch silicone wrap that will complement anyone’s style, and then the vintage genuine leather wrap for those who really appreciate the finer things in life. There is the 4oz Single Shot which fits great into your pocket and is the perfect companion for a night on the town. The 8oz Double Shot will fit in your pocket, but you may want to keep it in your bag - It’s enough to get through quite the adventure.
Our crystal glass is made of the same type of glass that high quality spirits are sold in. We pour our glass heavy which enables our flasks to take drops and spills without breaking. We have tested our flask dropping it with and without leather or silicone cases and the glass has survived many falls without breaking. We don't recommend testing this yourself but rest assure your flask is most likely to survive minor drops and falls.
All Ragproper flasks come with two lids and a funnel. The funnel is made of food grade silicone, is designed to fit perfectly into both flasks, and there’s a vent which guarantees a smooth pour. The first lid is a stylish brushed stainless steel metal. The second is a plastic lid so sneaking your flask into your favorite sporting event is a breeze. Both lids have genuine cork seals, just like you’d find on a top shelf liquor bottle.
As lovers of Whiskey, Scotch, and spirits on the go, Conor and David grabbed their flasks to fill for an upcoming adventure. Conor poured the remnants into a glass for a little pre-game drink. He was quickly disappointed that his metal flask had changed the taste of his liquor. Something was off, why did this happen? This is how Ragproper was born.
We need your help. We have been working on this project for over a year. We have already purchased the molds and are ready for production. Please back us so our dream becomes a reality and we can pour a glass of whiskey for all who care about what goes into their cup.

Risks and challenges
This project is years in the making, and we have done everything we can think of to make sure that fulfillment happens smoothly and quickly. We've already gone through multiple rounds of samples with our suppliers, and opened production ready molds/tooling for all the parts. Both Conor and David have years of experience in e-commerce and new product creation. Our biggest concern is with logistics of delivery. Rest assured that the worse that could happen is a slight delay, but we guarantee that a high quality product will be delivered!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
