    Recommend a Decent Travel Mug Please

    Looking for a recommendation for a decent travel mug.

    need it not to leak

    doesn't need to have a handle

    needs to hold a reasonable size drink

    easy open and close lid

    Thanks in advance, I have a thermos one at the moment which will be getting used as target practice imminently, leaks like a sieve if it's any more than half full!

    Just found a camelback forge mug on the internet, its not cheap but it looks a good bit of kit & camelback is normally well made.

    I've been using one of these pretty much every day for nearly two years: SS059 12oz starbucks stainless steel Xmas handle home travel tumbler NEW 2013 | eBay

    It doesn't have an open/close lid but it keeps my drink hot on the 60 mile journey from home to Heathrow.

    I bought a twin pack from Costco not so long ago - bloomin marvellous!

    Don't leak, lock on the press button - and your drink is still the temperature of lava about 6 hours on....

    And only about 11 quid for the two. Bargain.

    Have a look at contigo.

    Excellent seal, good heat retention and easy to drink from, holds just a bit more Tha a normal coffee mug.

    Had mine for years now. Still works well despite dents and dings from being dropped

    Lifeventure Mega Trek Mug.

    I have this and two flasks now from Lifeventure and they out perform anything I ever owned before. Just in a different league.

    If I make a cup of tea at 7.30 and head to the range it's still warm at 1pm when we wrap up.

    just bought one to replace the ridiculously crap lifeventures one (see below)

    The forge is very well made although on testing i immediately notice the lower ring of the lid becomes very hot
    using such a highly conductive material for a thermal mug is a joke
    won't keep fluids as hot as others as a result, but it is designed for yuppies keeping their starbucks warm on the way to work not for blokes sitting in the cold for hours on end........

    Does the camelback leak when you turn it on its side?
