This is not a drill! Stanley just dropped a new version of its mega-viral tumbler

The original Quencher typically sold out within hours of restocks.
Stanley Quencher

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated, but reaching your daily water goal is often easier said than done. One helpful way to make sure you're drinking enough throughout the day is by keeping a reusable bottle on hand. Although, if you're really serious about upping your water intake, you don't just want any vessel for your H2O — you want the best of the best.

And the Stanley Adventure Quencher Travel Tumbler is a clear internet favorite. The 40-ounce tumbler, which has been simply dubbed “the Quencher” or "the cup" by its loyal following of fans, often sells out within hours, if not minutes, of restocks. And at one point, it had a waitlist of 150,000 people.

Whether you've had the tumbler on your wish list for a while now or are already a big fan with a few in your cabinet, we have good news. Today, the brand is releasing an upgraded version of its mega-viral cup — The Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler.

Here, we're sharing everything you need to know about the new product and breaking down all the hype around the original.

Stanley The Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler

With its new Quencher, the brand has seemingly taken everything that users love about the original (the large size, temperature-keeping design and chic colors) and added some updates, including a new 90 percent recycled stainless steel construction and an ergonomic handle with comfort-grip inserts.

"The Quencher has become an internet sensation over the last two years," Terence Reilly, global president of the Stanley brand, said in a release. "As it has quickly risen in popularity — with restocks selling out in mere minutes and videos quickly going viral on social media — we wanted to continue to provide innovative products and solutions for our consumers. With the new Quencher H2.0 FlowState™ Tumbler, we ensured it was still everything consumers love about the Quencher, plus new features that meet a variety of activity and hydration needs and fit into a more sustainable, less disposable lifestyle."

Another exciting new feature of the new model is its FlowState Lid, which has a silicone seal around its straw base that is designed to help prevent spills. The rotating top's design includes three positions, so you can sip from the wide-mouth opening, use the accompanying straw or close it up when you're not drinking. It also comes in nine color options, including a blue Chambray hue and a perfect-for-fall Yarrow shade.

What is the Stanley Quencher?

Stanley, which was founded in 1913, is known for creating ultra-durable and sleek drinkware and food storage options, and the Quencher is no different. Shoppers fell in love with its quality and its ability to keep drinks cold for hours, and within the last few years, the tumbler has become a social media hit thanks to raving endorsements from mom bloggers and popular review accounts on Instagram and TikTok. A representative from the brand shared with us that there has been a 275 percent increase in sales of the Quencher year over year, and current U.S. sales of all sizes of the tumbler are up 751 percent in the year to date.

"Our 40oz Quencher is an internet phenomenon!" Reilly told Shop TODAY via email. "It became wildly popular initially by word of mouth, and now trends on social organically, with people posting about their favorite hydration accessory. Influencers and our affiliates certainly play a part in Quencher success as well."

The 40-ounce vacuum-insulated cup is said to keep drinks cold for up to 11 hours, hot for seven and even hold ice for up to two days. And because of its large size, the fact that it has a handle is a huge plus. It makes carrying it to the office or toting it around for workout classes and walks a lot easier. And as an added bonus, it's dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning a breeze.

Given its cult-favorite status, it's not surprising that it has a 4.7-star average rating from reviewers — and some of the most common complaints are about how it hardly ever stays in stock.

"[It's] the cup I never knew I was missing 'til I had it," wrote one reviewer. "Love it so much that I’m getting one for the office, one for upstairs and one for downstairs … once they come back in stock."

Reviewers also say that they love how durable it is — the stainless steel material can stand up against tumbles — and how it can fit into the drink holder of most cars.

"Best mug/tumbler I’ve ever had," wrote one reviewer. "I love the colors and how long it stays cold. Not to mention the straw. All around best product out there!!!!"

In addition to the new full-size H2.0 model, the brand has also released new smaller versions of the Quencher, which you can shop, below.

Stanley The Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler, 14-Ounce

Stanley's smallest and lightest Quencher, the brand says that this mini version is perfect for kids — and adults, too. At just $20 it's the most affordable of the Quenchers, so it could serve as a great introduction for anyone who wants to see what the hype is all about.

Stanley The Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler, 20-Ounce

Not too big or too small, the 20-ounce version seems like the perfect size for everyday use. You could tote it around while running errands or even use it to keep your morning cup of coffee hot — or cold, depending on how you like it.

Stanley The Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler, 30-Ounce

All the above sizes, including this 30-ounce version, feature the double-wall vacuum insulation, screw-on lid, recycled stainless steel design and reusable straw. Plus, they're designed to fit in your cup holder. This 30-ounce model is great for anyone who is looking for something that's just a little lighter than the original Quencher. It comes in six colors: Eucalyptus, Rose Quartz, Cream, Fog, Black and Charcoal.
