InventHelp Inventor Develops Sleeve for Insulated Stainless-Steel Tumblers

PITTSBURGH December 14, 2017 "I love using my stainless-steel tumbler for everything from pool parties and hunting trips to the daily commute," said an inventor from Centreville, Md. "What I don't like is how hot and/or cold the exterior becomes when used out of doors. Mine has become almost blistering hot after sitting in the hot sun for a short period of time. The polished surface makes getting a good grip difficult while driving and has led to spills. That same polished steel surface doesn't fit in well with all of the camouflage at hunt camp either!

I designed this sleeve to alleviate all of those problems and to allow me to customize my tumbler for the occasion/event without having to purchase multiple tumblers." He developed the SkinZ to serve as a beverage sleeve for stainless-steel...
