Best mug for morning coffee?
The Stansport cups are about 39.1 grams each.--B.G.--
I really like my Kupilka 21 cup for my morning coffeehttp://hrxxlight.com/?p=777
I also like my Kupilka 21 for coffee, tea, hot chocolate and a fine, ice cold cup of water. Titanium is rubbish in my experience for hot beverages (burnin' lips).
My mug/bowl is a 2 cup ziplock twist-top food storage bowl. Don't have to worry about crushing/cracking, they nest well, and the lid seals nicely so you can use it for extended rehydration. 0.9 oz for the bowl only, 1.5 oz with lid and bubblewrap cozy.
"Titanium is rubbish in my experience for hot beverages (burnin' lips)."I haven't had this issue with the double-walled titanium, only the single-walled.But the Kupilka sure is a sweet looking coffee cup!
Has anyone ever tried/seen one of these?http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CZ9B5W/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=A1729W3053T57N

I've used these before and can recommend them for the light weight and compactness with the caviat that they only hold about 7-8 oz.
I have been using one of these over the winter-Weight is under 2oz, holds 16oz liquid, insulates better than a metal cup, and is easy to mix hot cocoa or VIA in- just close the spout and shake. You can also close the spout between sips to drastically reduce the convective cooling of your warm beverage!Found at Walmart somewhere in the $1.50 range

nobody a fan of the gsi soloist?i cant recall when i needed a seperate mug, aside from my cooking mug. either a heiny pot with reflectix cozy or the soloist with its stock cozy. as a set, the spork thing could be better and the pot gripper is overkill.
I have several I've pickup up on road trips. I have one that I got from a hotel in New Mexico last June, still use it. Weighs 4 grams. They last a long time if stored correctly and easy to acquire. I keep a second one for water collection, which could be used in an emergency in case of failure, which hasn't happened so far.
Forgot this one. I found it in a thrift store. 2.5oz/70g and holds 12oz/350ml. I think it is polyethylene and has a snap lid and a neoprene sleeve for insulation.
I've been using a Snow Peak 450 ml. (14 oz.) double wall titanium cup, with the optional plastic lid. With the lid, it keeps my coffee hotter longer than anything I've ever tried. A luxury? Perhaps--but it's worth every gram to me.

It may be a bit gimmicky, but I have been using the sea to summit collapsible x-mug. 2.2oz for 16oz of volume, takes up no room, don't have to worry about denting, crushing. But no handle.http://www.rei.com/product/787278
I like my GSI Minimalist, there are slightly lighter options but as a "kit" it works well and is cheap. The cozy and lid for work freezer bag cooking in the evening. The spork doesn't work well for soups and I do not use the pot gripper either. I keep looking at other set ups but the volume and sip-it lid are perfect for me. Windscreen, cat can stove, and small fuel bottle all fit inside too.
Has anyone tried those silicone "Hot Lips" things on their titanium mugs? How do they work? I bought a Snow Peak 600 ml mug that came with one of those, hoping I cold use the 600 ml. as both pot and cup.
I also have the double wall Snow Peak 450 with the plastic lid. Keeps my tea hot for a long time. I really like it.
I use a snow peak titanium for my coffee. Single walled and have never had a problem with burnt lips. You just have to make sure to leave adequate room between the top of the cup and the hot fluid level. Also using a metal mug allows you to make cowboy coffee instead of via or instant.
I use a Snow Peak 600 single wall for both my freezer bag cooking and my morning coffee. It cools off fast enough that I can get to drinking it without killing to much time. Got to love multi-use gear :)
I just saw this while perusing a distributor catalog. It is supposed to be available after 4/30. It is an anodized aluminum cup, that holds a max of 24oz, weighs 3.2oz and will retail for $10. I think it is an interesting inexpensive option.
2.5 oz. w/ spill-proof lidcan cook in it (single wall) using .1 oz. foil lid400ml (great size)stays hot with lid / add a cozy if you wantmy daily mug and sometimes cookpot - probably my single most used piece of gear$20 +/-
