GSI Glacier Stainless Steel Bottle Cup
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Don't remember but not too expensive.
Fits over a 1L Nalgene +
- Fits over a 1L Nalgene bottle
- Not as light as Titanium
Fits over a 1L Nalgene bottle but even better for me, it fits over my Optimus Svea 123 stove replacing the very small aluminum "pot" that comes with it. It now becomes both a cup and cooking pot when going solo. Not the lightest combo but the most bullet proof!
Not non stick but can be scrubbed with sand/dirt to clean burned food if necessary.
Highly recommend if you want to save space and fit it over your Nalgene bottle or as I do, use it as a stove cover and pot/cup combo. Be sure if you're buying it in a store that it fits over the Nalgene 1L bottle as they make a slightly smaller size that won't fit either stove or bottle.

This mug comes backpacking w/ me about 80% of the time. It is a little heavy.
Heating up water and making small amounts of food like breakfast it works well. The way it slips over a nalgene is very nice for space and it helps your water bottle slip in and out of side pockets on your pack. Handles do not heat up too bad except over the fire.
So it lost 1/2 star for weight that's all .

This is actually two reviews. Why? Because for some weird reason, GSI was originally producing this in a size that in a diameter that would fit around the bottle of a standard 1L Nalgene. Then they decided to make it slightly smaller, just slightly; now, it won't stack with a Nalgene bottle. Who knows why; it certainly makes zero sense.
If you find one that will fit around the bottom of your Nalgene, 4.5 stars -- perfectly fine steel cup, good handholders, and a nice space saver.
If you find out the current model, 3 stars. Fine steel cup, but now it is taking up more space in your pack.

Can't ask for much more. Strong, relatively light and stores around my 1 liter Nalgene. I can carry 2 in just a hair more space than a plain Nalgene bottle requires. It's also big enough to cook a small solo meal in if needed.

This is perfect for solo trips. It's big enough to boil two cups of water, has handles long enough so you don't burn your fingers, is small enough to drink comfortably out of, is big enough to use as a bowl, and fits snugly around your water bottle so you don't lose space. It multi-tasks wonderfully, and will absolutely not break the bank.
