    Your Favorite Travel Mug

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    What's your favorite travel coffee mug? I have a Starbuck's stainless steel one that I love, keeps coffee hot for hours, but they don't make it anymore. I'm looking to buy a travel mug for a Christmas gift, so I'm looking for recommendations. Thank you

    These
    Contigo Travel Mugs
    I got mine in a two pack at Costco, but they are around.
    *No leak or spills. You can put it in a gym bag, or whereever and they will not leak. The new ones have a locking button for double security.
    *Really well insulated: they keep thing hot for hours. Really. You can put something hot in it, and hours later it will still be hot, not warm.
    * Very durable.

    Also won't leak, fits in a bottle holder on a bike, keeps liquid scorching hot for hours.... And I put it in the dishwasher. :-)

    I have a similar Nissan Thermos one but in mug style.

    Never ever leaks, crazy hot for long times, and has made many a journey on my commuter bike. I love how grippy the handle and body are. It's held coffee, protein shakes, and oatmeal happily. And it has held up to all kinds of big drops and other unintended abuse. Several years and still going strong.

    This one from REI keeps things insanely warm - had a cup of tea waiting for me 4 hours after a bitter cold bike ride and it was still almost too hot to drink: http://www.rei.com/product/799295/re...mbler-15-fl-oz
    For 3 days, I get to part of a thousand other journeys.

    I have a 18 oz. widemouth HydroFlask and have the travel mug lid for it...I like being able to have the regular screw cap on it to transport it in a backpack etc. so I can be sure it won't spill, and then switch caps when it's time to drink the contents. Those Contigo mugs look cool but I'm just not sure I'd trust anything other than a plain screw cap in a backpack...

    I was riding the bus with someone the other day as she was attempting to clean up the mess from where one had leaked in her bag...

    I've never had a problem but the new ones have a lock on them for extra security..
