One of the best parts of backpacking is waking up on a brisk morning and enjoying that first warm cup of coffee or tea. The warmth seems to thaw the morning chill and gets you ready for a great day on the trail.
Our titanium mugs are the perfect way to savor that first cup. The double-wall insulation means that your drink stays warm to the very last drop. The insulation also keeps the mug warm to the touch, but not scalding hot like single wall cups.
The 450 ml (15.2 ounces) capacity is just right for that morning coffee or tea.
Why spend extra on a titanium mug?
Titanium is extremely durable and will last for decades. It is also corrosion-resistant, inert, and does not absorb food odors. Plastic cups will break and melt, while aluminum leeches into your drink over time. Titanium is the gold standard that doesn't compromise on performance. It's also ultralight and will not add unnecessary weight to your pack.
If you think this sounds like the perfect mug, you're right! We promise it will be the last camping mug you'll ever buy!
- 450 ml (15.2 ounces) double-wall titanium mug
- Mesh storage sack
The Snow Peak lid works perfectly with this cup.
(I see that another reviewer didn't have a good experience; then the lid wasn't available for a time during the pandemic. The Snow Peak lid that is specific to their own branded 450 ml double wall titanium mug fits the Paria double walled mug perfectly).
Regarding insulation: Another reviewer noted that this does not hold heat for too long. I believe that's because most titanium double walled mugs are air insulated, not vacuum insulated. Most of the vacuum insulated mugs and bottles are stainless steel. For my purposes this product is lightweight, and keeps my drink hot enough for long enough. The lid helps keep drinks warmer longer.
Thanks for a great product! I still use it every day.
Great little mug. Looks sharp. The folding handles work better than I expected. I use it almost every single day. The double layer helps keep things hot or cold for a while--more than adequate for most of my needs. I did find a silicone lid to use when necessary (my employer requires all drink cups and bottles be covered at work). The only downside is that being double walled, it cannot be put directly on heat, like I do with my single walled titanium pots and mugs. Overall, I love it!
Really enjoyed this mug so far, the double walled construction seemed to help in heat retention compared to others. Worked great when paired with a little powdered margarita mix and tequila at night as well! Very happy with support - had a slight issue with another product and was promptly handled and replaced.
Although the mug did keep beverages warm, I tested it with a cooking thermometer against my existing polymer backpacking mug made by GSI, and the Paria mug consistently kept beverages only a few degrees warmer. For the test I used a tight fitting lid from a double walled tumbler I have, on the Paria mug, as well as an old Smartwool sock as an insulator, which I planned to do on the trail as well. The Paria mug does not have these accessories, while the GSI mug does. I tested temperatures at the 5, 10, 15, and 30 minute marks. The Paria mug kept the beverage 2, 3, 5, and 8 degrees warmer, respectively, at those times. Although I didn't make a similar test without the lid and sock, it's highly unlikely that the Paria mug would have performed as well without them. Titanium is simply a much more conductive material than polypropylene. Without its removable handles and mesh sack, the Paria mug weighed in at 106 grams, while the GSI mug, with lid and insulating sleeve, weighs 84 grams. The most powerful selling point of the Paria mug is that titanium is inert and does not leach chemicals, but because I only use my GSI mug several times a year, this is not a concern for me.
I love this mug. I took it hiking with us. It is lightweight. I enjoyed my coffee immensely. Thank you.
