If you want the best backpacking mug around, look no further. There’s only one titanium backpacking mug to rule them all. It’s insulated, ultralight, durable, and guaranteed to keep your coffee hot during a rainstorm, and It also can be used on a stove to cook your meal or just sipping tea around your campfire.
I’ve found the 420 ml volume mug to be perfect when I’m backpacking. 420 ml works out to about 14 oz, which is the mug I use at home too (or slightly bigger). On the trail, I typically have coffee or tea in the morning before I start hiking, then I like to pack my mug away for the rest of the day. I also often use it to eat out of, and again have found the 420 ml size to be more than adequate.
You can get a lid for this mug. They have a plastic version and a silicone version. I use the lid when I’m at home or driving around with the mug. But I don’t take it with me when I’m backpacking, saving a little weight. But they do sell a lid for it.
What is Titanium?
Titanium is a lustrous transition metal widely used by the aerospace industry due to its ability to withstand the harsh condition of outer space. It has also become popular with medical manufactures since it is completely non-toxic to the human body and can be safely implanted in the body.
Lightweight and strong – It has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element. It weighs almost the same as aluminum but is stronger than steel.
Corrosion resistant – It is highly resistant to corrosion even in sea water, aqua regia and chlorine.
Bio-compatible – It is non-toxic, non-allergenic and perfectly compatible with the human body.
Durable – It is more durable than gold and has become a popular choice for designer jewelry.
Why titanium is best for backpacking mug?
So, why is titanium so great for backpacking? Or is it that great?
There are a lot of people who are critical of titanium because it’s pretty damn expensive. It may be super lightweight and durable, but it makes up for that with a hefty price tag. In my opinion, these mugs are worth it because they provide me with a little extra joy and comfort when I’m on the trail.
