User Review: GSI Fairshare Mug
Price Paid: $5.50 (clearance)
I wish this mug would'a been around when my wife and I started backpacking in 1972.
What makes it special are several things: one is the 32oz quantity it can hold; another is the screw top lid which seals very tightly without a gasket (I've never had one that leaked); and the lightness coupled with the well designed handle.
Not to mention it's Lexan, an almost unbreakable plastic. Obviously, you couldn't cook on a stove with it.
Now I'm using them at home (I'm retired) for soups, noodle/shrimp dishes, chili and many other things. I absolutely hate to use a bowl. I can fix something hot and sit in a comfortable chair watching whatever, and don't have to loom over a bowl with a spoon or fork.
And its heat retaining quality is remarkably good, especially when used with the lid. Not too great for cold iced drinks though. Use a thermal tumbler instead.
So if you could care less about "table manners", then don't sit at a table! Hope you like them as much as I do.
