Editors' Choice 2013 Gold Award: Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall 450 Mug

Drink from the sweetest camp cup on the planet.

by: The Backpacker Editors

Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall 450 Mug (Jonathan Dorn)
Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall 450 Mug (Jonathan Dorn)

Plastic insulated mugs are just as light, keep drinks just as hot, and cost a whole lot less. So why buy Ti? One word: durability. “In half a decade of using mine, I’ve seen a handful of plastic mugs crack, melt, and discolor in a way that makes me nervous about what chemicals are leaching out every time I put them through the dishwasher,” says one of our veteran staffers. “But my titanium mug still looks new.”

It’s big enough (14 fluid ounces) for a serving of pasta, and the rounded bottom edge makes for easy cleaning. Another editor loves it for aesthetic reasons: “Some of my favorite moments on any backcountry trip involve an early-morning cup of coffee, when no one else is awake, or maybe a hot brandy by a campfire after a long, hard day,” he says. “I think of this mug like fine crystal: The proper vessel to toast a special occasion.” Note: Like any double-walled container, you can’t use it to heat liquid over a stove without risk of injury or damaging the vacuum seal between the two walls. Must get: the optional sipper lid ($5). $50 ($60 for colored versions); 4.2 oz. (including lid); snowpeak.com

Single wall is much better because you can use it to cook with if needed...you cant do that with a double walled or your asking for trouble if you do. I have a single wall for that reason

Competitor Stoic same 450ml double-wall titanium, but holds over 16 oz literally and comes with sipping turn-cap, cost $33, but weighs 6.9 oz, and only gray ti color. But QT branded Aladdin 16oz wide-based mug with lid is 8.6 oz, and for winter camping keeps hot coffee hot a lot longer, can't feel the heat. Ti mug, oh yeah.

I see this as being worth it in the durability department alone... I keep mine clipped to the outside of my pack... Bangs off of trees and rocks all day, still looks new... In the time since I've bought this, my buddy has gone through 4 cheapo plastic mugs... BUY YOUR LAST TOOL FIRST!!!!!!

A 4.2 ounce cup which only holds 14 ozs of fluid for $50 !!?? How about a 12cm Imusa cup from WalMart for $2.78 that weighs the same amount and holds 3 1/2 cups of fluid?

This gets an Editors Choice award? This is the kind of stuff which causes Backpacker Magazine to lose it's credibility.

Awww..hating's bad! I buy equipment with the idea of daily use and durability. I bought this mug 5 yrs ago and it is at great as its first day out with me. Get the sippy cup lid! But...hike your own hike. Peace.

Sorry gram-weenies and gear snobs. I wouldn't pay $50 or $60 for a camp cup even if I had money leaking out of my ears. It's a preposterous waste of cash and you'll never convince me otherwise. If you must pay $40 more than what a GSI or Oli cup costs -- to shed 2 ounces of carrying weight -- you're just an obsessive dork with too much disposable income. But then every hobby has people like that...
