    How well does the Wildo stay rigid with hot water in?

    I use a snow peak 450 ti mug and an x seal and go mug, which is the same capacity as the snow peak. Really like it, and proper sealing lid. Couscous, coffee and instant noodles all good in it!

    Yes, Scotland does have the best beaches in the world.

    Wildo stays totally rigid with hot liquids in it (except lava...)

    I got the soto thermostack last week it makes a double wall cup what you can also take apart to boil water in.

    Wildo is fine with hot drinks in it.

    As long as you have your "rubbish negating glasses " on. The NW ones are worst.
    Those near "civilisation" get some attention from locals.
    Those remote enough to need a good walk to get to are unbelievably trashed .
    Rubbish brought from around the planet on the "Gulf Stream". :cry::cry::cry:

    It's pretty interesting how some beaches are clean and others are not. In NZ national parks' remote beaches we saw barely any rubbish and in Fiji's national park there was even a fridge among other rubbish.

    Rubbish comes in on all beaches. Whether it gets removed is very much a function of accessibilty, and funds to pay for it.

    Wildo (large) convert here. Another point in its favour is its comparatively low/wide profile, making it more difficult to tip over.

    Also (sorry to lower the tone) it make it a better bedpan, both in terms of ease of use and sliding under the tent hem for night disposals.

    Raising the tone again, it works better as a scoop than other shapes, particularly in collapsed mode, when it also 'pockets' easily, meaning I'm more inclined to stop at clean streams for a quick drink.

    Unlike others, I do find it a little saggy/wobbly at the handle when full of coffee, but not unmanageably so, and although there is only a slight taint from the material (not from its alternative use, honest), it's more than I had with the ordinary plastic mug it has replaced.

    1 more for Wildo (small) fold a cup. Figured the larger cup would let the drink get too cool before I had time to drink it. Tried lots of different cups over the years and never found a better one than a cheap wildo.

    I use the wildo large for awhile now, only ever fill it just over half full for drinks which stay hot for a decent period of time. It's a good size for measuring out water for dehydrated meals, folds well, holds well between the index & middle finger, but best of all is a good size for whisking up a pack of angel/heavenly delight :drool: (holds a decent amount of food in general)

    Sandwood is "cared for" (owned ??) by John Muir Trust. They have regular rubbish clear ups.
    It's one of the beaches I would say is close to civilisation - not in miles but in mindset - there's a good path to it.

    I would agree Cathy, but I think that there must be something about the currents in the area as there was almost nothing there; no driftwood or seaweed and there wasn't really a high tide line.

    There's a huge tidal eddy off Cape Wrath, could be taking the crap out to sea.
