Ti mug/cook pot with lid. Lid has plastic knob lifter and vent/pour holes.


  • Ultralight weight
  • Plastic knob lid lifter helps prevent burns vs. metal
  • Vent/pour holes in lid
  • Large enough to store fuel canister, stove, etc.
  • Comes with mesh bag


  • Not graduated

Vargo's Ti-lite 900ml mug and lid (119g + 27g = 146g) is large enough to boil over two cups of water and stow much of your kit when not in use. Diameter is sufficient to store a small fuel canister.  

The lid has a plastic knob lifter instead of the metal lifters I've seen on other designs. The plastic knob helps prevent burns vs. the metal lifters.  

The lid also features vent/pour holes with a single hole on one side of the lid and a row of five holes on the other side. This allows you to adjust the pour rate to fit your needs while keeping the lid vented so it pours faster.

This mug is not graduated and that's what prevented me from giving it five-stars. I scratched my own marks on the inside wall of the mug.

The mug came with a mesh storage bag large enough to accommodate the mug/lid and a small fuel canister.





That's a nice mug. Thanks for the review!

Good review with enough info to make an informed decision. Howsomever...I've long ago decided that I will not be purchasing ANY ti cookware.

To Wit:1. Titanium is a poor heat conductor and a center hotspot is created when using canister or liquid fuel stoves. 2. To be as light as aluminum utensils ti must be very thin and this means "dentable". 3. Ti is unnecessarily expensive when compared to hard anodized or even ceramic coated aluminum.
