So it's light! very light! but not cheap. So for a cup? As I don't lose things, and I can't break this mug it's a price that I'm happy to pay.

God is in the details they say, and this bit is all about it - one of the things that I like when going for a long trek is to have some comfy with me, and to know that nothing is going to happen to it. So with my mug, I can drink hot beverages:) nice at the end of the day, or on a rest day, or to start my day, you name it.

One thing - Titanium is not the best to save the drink hot for long...so this is a downside for me as I like to drink slow but have my drink as hot as possible. I'm thinking about adding some neoprene around it for isolation. Maybe the Snowpeak double wall make more sense? But I do love the size of my MSR mug!

Summary

I was looking for a lightweight mug.

Pros

  • light
  • strong
  • perfect small pot

Cons

  • small diameter, means harder to use alcohol stove

In trying to lighten up more, I searched for a smaller lighter pot and found this MSR to be perfect used with the Soto stove. But now I want to ditch the cannister stove and move to an alcohol stove. My goal is to get a pot of water to a boil in under 6 minutes. The problem seems to be because of its small size the flame and a lot of heat goes up the sides of the pot and prolongs the boil time.
