/ Good quality thermal cup.
I have early starts a few days a week and inevitable end up drinking a lot of coffee in order to function and that means spending a lot of money in Costa before, in the middle and after my commute, I've had a couple of large thermal cups but none really work so well.
I have a great small flask that i can refill the cup with but i'm really looking for a good quality, large-ish thermal cup that'll stay warm whilst I walking about.
Starbucks and Costa both do insulated drinking cups. I have a Starbucks one (it was a gift) and it s really, really good.
Don't bother with the berghaus ones, the plastic handles snap off. Happened on both of mine.
If it's this one then I have the same. http://www.outside.co.uk/shop/Thermal+Mug?utm_source=google&utm_medium=shopping&utm_campaign...
To the OP: It really is very good and will keep tea decently hot for about 4 hours. I got mine from TK Maxx for about £4 so worth checking there if you can. There is storage space in the lid but have never used it. I guess you could keep milk in there.
Me too. I don't use it so much at the moment, but when I commuted by train, this mug was a godsend for frosty mornings on the platform when the train was inevitably late. It also had the advantage that it was watertight, so didn't leak when in my bag while cycling to the station.
I had a series of them from another manufacturer (can't remember who, unfortunately) and returned them all as they all had a weak thread on the lid which flattened easily, causing the drink to leak. The Lifeventure one has been great though.
My one was rubbish and broke very soon after getting it. The top kept popping. It was a common problem at the time. I have Karrimor one, which has never broken or top popped. Slightly smaller, but much better. They may have changed the design at some point to improve it, or wear might have happened on the mould so later ones were rubbish before they fixed them...
Anybody tried/got one of these? They're definitely on the expensive side, but it looks quality...
Yeah the lifeventure mini flask/mugs are brill' and the perfect size to fit in the ammo pouch of c95 webbing, you just have to chuck a couple of mags away
Lifeventure here, too. The lid popping seems to have passed with time (it's about 5 years old and still going strong)
I use one of those daily for work and can not fault it.
I use one of these:
I can't praise it highly enough, The lid is fully watertight, it's been dropped from scaffolding on to concrete with no damage and it keeps brews warm for long enough. I've previously used a lifeventure insulated mug/flask and while they're good, I find that they keep a brew too hot - I generally want to drink mine within 30 minutes of making it and I can't afford to hang about blowing on it
I have a fantastic mug from Tim Horton's (Canadian coffee shop chain) bought for about $2. It's by far the best travel mug type thing that I've ever used - it'll happily keep coffee hot for an hour, and drinking for up to about two hours.
Obviously not a great recommendation if you're not going to find yourself in Canada any time soon mind...
and only ever rinsed with your next brew? Bet your CSgt loved you.
