The Mug by MSR. These 12.5 ounce stainless steel mugs with secure lids by MSR offer are extremely durable and also keep the user safe from hot contents. An insulated sleeve makes the mug easy to grasp and also keeps it from rattling inside pots when stored for packing. Various color options come in handy for keeping track of which mug belongs to which camper.
This product can only be shipped within the United States. Please don't hate us.
The shape makes it so packable that it has become my go to cup. Two things though: -the metal ring at the brim gets hot, needs a "hot lips" insert. Also, with the mouthhole on the wide side of the cup, liquid comes out fast. i would like to see the hole on the narrow end of the cup for more control.

I bought this weeks ago in the Birmingham, MI store. I have never gone to a coffee shop since without someone wanting to know where I got this. (I look both ways before answering). But there is always someone eves-dropping.When you sip from this mug, you get what you sip. Women could save $ on lip stick.It's shape fits the curves a shoulder bag while it rests against a book flatly inside -- James Bond should be so lucky when incognitoTruthfully, I don't daily attend a coffee shop, but when I do I bring my MSR Mug.. It's the most interesting cup in the world.
This mug was totally awesome...but after 3 days of using it for tea, the lid no longer fit snug tight and so when I would take a drink the liquid would start to leak out from under the lid seam. If the lid fit like it did the first day that I got it, it would be fantabulous.
After searching for the perfect mug, I decided on this one. It packs nicely in your pack and you can put spare batteries and smaller items inside to cut down on room. The large base is nice and helps prevents spills, but the cover seems loose and I'm not sure I would trust it to not come out. When the cup is full of hot liquid, the area where your mouth would be for sipping gets quite hot (it is partially metal, not good) and the lid seems to tighten up a bit with the heat, but is loose once the drink cools. Overall, its a great idea for a mug, but I would like to see a silicone sipping area and a cover that fits properly, and is maybe attached with a small cord.
I own four of these. I've also bought a few more at various points to give away as gifts to my outdoor inclined friends. They are great! They keep whatever you are drinking hot (or cold) and the insulation also prevents you from burning your hands. Be careful though, it can be deceiving. Since your hands stay safe from the heat, this doesn't mean your mouth/tongue will. I made the silly mistake of drinking out of one my first time using it WAY too soon. I burned the dickens out of myself. Guess that can be a testament to how well they work. Plus they nest inside my MSR pot set, thus saving valuable space.
You honestly know when you're holding this mug that, unless you loose it in the wilds of Africa someplace, it will last forever. It's light, it's super-insulated, and it's comfortable to hold. I bought it for durability and packability and it shines like the friggin' sun on both. Two thumbs up for sure.
