    Coffee mug/tumbler recommendations!

    This is probably the second most important piece of gear next to a good belt/holster combo. ;)

    Anyway, I'm looking for a tumbler (i.e. mug w/o handle) to hold and keep my morning coffee warm during my commute. Right now I'm using a freebie that I got a couple of years ago from LAPG but it's not insulated and doesn't keep stuff hot for very long. It's sippy hole is also just covered by a piece of plastic that slides over it, so if you jostle it around enough coffee will fill up the outside of the lid.

    I've looked at a couple of different Thermos models which might do the trick but thought I'd ask here to see what the rest of you carry.

    I've not found one that is any better than any other, but I have a relatively short commute. If I'm out in the cold for a longer period of time, I break out the old school dented and scratched Aladdin Stanley green aluminum thermos. That thing will easily outlive me, and keeps coffee hot all day long.

    The main thing is just to get a double walled metal tumbler. I pour hot water in to heat my tumbler and let it sit, while the coffee brews. Makes a big difference in keeping things warm.

    Honestly your local Starbucks is a good place to start looking.

    What Badwolf said.

    I use a small Thermos model that is a matching set, a thermos and a cup with a lid. The combo holds two full cups of coffee, with the thermos keeping the second one hot while I drink the first. Both are double aluminum/metal walled, and both are molded to fit into a car cupholder, so I can sit them both in cupholders while I yell and scream at other drivers.

    I have a green Stanley thermos as well, they are awesome, but I don't need to bust that out for my 30 min commute.

    The ones I have been looking at are double walled, some seem to be insulated some with an air gap, both claim to keep stuff hot for hours.

    I'll check out Sbux, like I need an excuse to go there. ;)

    I second the contigo brand. They keep my coffee hot enough to burn my tongue for a long time.

    I have a thermos model number JMQ400PCH, that I like a lot. My only gripe is that it's to tall to fit in my single serve keurig, but I'm not a huge everyday coffee guy

    Bodum travel press...

    If you want the best possible coffee... you can make it in this travel press... a tablespoon of grounds or less (to taste), pour in hot water... wait 5 minutes... press the plunger down (forces grounds to bottom just like a regular coffee press... It will keep coffee hot for 2 hours.

    You can get it in plastic (inexpensive) or SS (a bit more pricey).

    Link

    10660-01B.jpg11057-01BUS.jpg

    Plastic ones will crack if dropped.... SS will dent... but does not affect the press.

    Remove the press screen and you can use it as a regular travel mug that will dispense more coffee... the screen is fine enough to hold some coffee below it.

    The SS unit will be in my BOB, if it isn't on my person.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    It keeps hot things 'hot', and cold things 'cold'. How do it know?

    Better buy it now before the high capacity beverage container ban.

    You newer members have missed the boat on the DefensiveCarry Coffee Mugs. Unfortunately...they are no longer available for purchase.

    This is the best travel mug I have ever used. The seal is awesome and I haven't spilled a drop of my morning cuppa since I started using one.
