Having a warm drink can prevent the onset of hypothermia

A hot drink could prevent someone in the group succumbing to hypothermia by warming them up from the inside when they start to feel cold. Some people would argue that coffee should not be carried, as it's a diuretic, meaning it leads to increased urination & fluid loss. However, any warm non-alcoholic hot drink is better than nothing, so take what you like in the flask.

In a group situation, someone should take a flask even if personal preference is for cold drinks en route.
