First, I like that it's rugged and lightweight compared to many materials, and can be used to heat 8 - 12 oz of water directly over a stove / fire, or can be used as a cup or even a small eating dish. Being Ti, you expect it's going to handle getting banged around very well.


If you need a 12 oz cup that is tough and lightweight for $17, this may fill your bill.

On the other hand, I question the size vs. function vs. cost vs. functionality. For most of the dehydrated meals I've packed in, the need is for 16 oz of heated water, not 12, so using this by itself might be a suboptimal choice: You can realistically boil 8 - 10 oz in this cup, not 12. Further, A 500 ml / 16 oz cup / mini-pot w/ handle may be a better choice if I want to only carry a single item.

Yes, for a cup it is lightweight and rugged, but if you wish to use this for multifunctions, then it may not be a little small.

The previous reviewers thoughts on the limitations of the Sierra cup shape are well taken. It's small, and only works for certain circumstances, but in those circumstances it works very well.

A Sierra cup does not work well on a fire. It has a lot of surface area, and hot drinks cool fast, which depending on your preferences can be a blessing or a curse. I find the size good an individual meal serving, and bring it along with a bigger pot on group trips.

It gets used most often on solo trips, with my Ti Wing stove. Lots of bottom surface area suits the esbit well, and it boils water quickly. One cup full is enough for my home made solo dehydrated meals, and the tea I make in it cools to drinkable quickly.

It's light, cheap, and functional.
