The best camping cup is one that keeps your brew hot or cold, holds in spills, and fits easily in your hand. It should also look good, and be free of chemicals that leach into your beverage. A stainless steel mug is durable, easy to clean, and is available in a variety of colors. It also works well as a travel mug, and can be used in a car cup holder. Stainless steel is also lighter than aluminum, making it a better option for backpacking.
What type of mug is best?
Collapsible mugs, like this one from UCO, are a popular choice for backpackers because they can fold down into a smaller size when not in use. However, some collapsible mugs can leave a rubber-like taste in your drink. If you’re planning on using your mug for outdoor adventures, it might be a good idea to stick with a collapsible mug made of silicone or plastic.
This insulated mug from RTIC is a great all-around option. It’s tall and slim enough to fit in most coffee cup holders, and comes with a lid that clicks closed for safety. The mug can hold ice for up to 24 hours and will keep your hot drinks warm for just as long. It’s also dishwasher safe, which is a major plus when camping.
If you’re looking for a camping mug that’s stylish and Instagram-worthy, this cute enamel camp mug might be just what you need. It comes in a variety of colors and features an “The Adventure Begins,” or “Hit the Road” design. It’s a great addition to any campsite and can be paired with other matching RV-themed gear from Adventurist.
