Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: tested or reviewed it for the manufacturer (Kept product)

Summary

This is an awesome smart coffee or tea mug for active travelers.

Pros

  • Stainless steel insulation
  • Press fit silicone lid does a really good job at keeping liquids from leaving mug.
  • The swiveling tab is very useful for keeping coffee from sloshing out when walking.

Cons

  • A tad heavy to use while backpacking
  • Although the silicone top cleans easily, it has some adhesiveness to it so if the mug rolls around in a car or floor, the cap collects debris.

Disclaimer! I received this product from Innate to test on a recent climbing expedition to western China.

That being said, this is the best coffee mug I have ever used. It wouldn't be the mug that I would take on a backpacking trip but It definitely goes with me everywhere from basecamps, work, river trips, field sites, road trips, and ice climbing ventures.

Its solid stainless steel construction, and press to fit silicone top are really cool features. I've had a number of mugs that really suffered from poorly designed lids. As long as you keep the top groove on the stainless steel wall and the silicone cap clean, the lid seals soundly. A tab swivels around to allow coffee goodness to flow, and when walking or driving, it swivels into the sipping spot to block liquids. Each time the tab swivels it also opens or blocks an air vent on the lid.

It's a smart and fairly unique design, the cup feels good, doesn't get too hot and keeps liquids warm or cold. We had six cups on our trip and didn't have any issues except just making sure to keep the silicone lid clean for safe sealing. 

Innate is a really cool small rapidly growing company based in Vancouver, Canada. they make a lot of other great responsibly sourced products, check them out!

Summary

A great size mug for a cappuccino or medium coffee with a lid that seals easily and a closure that's easy to manage.

Pros

  • The lid seals easily but is still easy to remove and clean.
  • The closure is easy to manage w/o looking and seals well.
  • Fits great in standard cup holders
  • All parts are durable and not likely to break down

This is a great all around coffee mug that will take lots of use easily, cleans quickly and travels well in your shoulder bag.
