For a trip
Depending on a trip you are going to, different features of a thermal mug would be important to you. We’ve managed to specify few basic characteristics of an ideal travel mug:

On the other hand, Asobu and EcoVessel offer cool bicycle mugs that can be easily attached to the bike frame. Klean Kanteen Classic with comfortable handle next to the cork will be very useful during trekking – you can attach it to your backpack. Contigo mugs guarantee maintaining temperature up to 5 hours, however they’re indestructible and have convenient handle. They’re therefore good for trips and inside car, when we’re not exposed to low or high temperatures for a long period of time.
On a desk
Mugs that perfectly fit as desk accessory usually are shaped like a classic ceramic mug. They don’t keep temperature as long as their classic counterparts, but in comparison with porcelain or glass – they certainly win! Such mugs also can suit as a substitute for disposable cups, for example when you order take away coffee.
When you need a really big amount of beverage or you spend a lot of time outside without access to water and a kettle, think about XXL thermal mug. The biggest ones, around 1l, are simply thermoses. Still though you can find some interesting ones that contain more than 600ml of a drink.
Colours, colours and – once again – colours! The choice of mugs, from which kids would drink absolutely everything, is colossal! Tiny Asobu thermoses with little leash are an absolute smash! Thanks to the leash you can easily hold them in your hand or attach to a backpack.
