Pewter Hip Flasks with Captive TopCaptive top pewter hip flasks are the evolution from the traditional top hip flask. For the concerned drinker who is not sure whether they can be trusted to keep hold of their cap, these captive arm pewter flasks offer the safer option.

The caps of these beautiful pewter hip flasks are attached via an arm also known as a ‘captive top’. When you unscrew the cap the arm swings up and away from the flask taking the cap and enabling you to drink your favourite tipple without the threat of losing your top.
