    Decathlon did (have?) a 400ml ali mug. It is lighter than my Ti ones but ali does bend/dent easier.

    That's pretty much all that's put me off aluminium for a mug/pot. Well, that and that Ti is now easier to find.

    I'm not a big fan of drinking from a metal mug, much prefer plastic, usually half the weight and a fraction of the price too.

    Obviously no good if you cook with a mug too

    I dearly miss burning my lips and fingers on ally mugs and pots. :inlove:

    I used to enjoy looking at the bit of lip skin hanging off the mug rim, whilst trying to suck the boiling coffee out without touching it. Fond memories on hillsides, waiting for the drink to hit a tolerable temp, and then drinking the lot in 30 seconds before it got too cold. :hungry:

    500ml would be a better size for a boiler.

    Same here, always a plastic mug and spoon.

    The main advantage with titanium is that You can put mug on snow and when You pick it up it is still warm. It just keeps the content warm much longer than aluminium.

    Same as me, love it.

    At the moment i'm still using the slightly older version (not much difference other than decoration), i found the newer (on your link) really cheap a couple of years ago and grabbed a couple of spares, as a few years back i put one of the lid seals somewhere safe and forgot where that safe place was! couldn't find replacement seals anywhere so bought a new one just for spares and a couple extra for a rainy day (I thought they were maybe going out of production)

    That's a cracking price on your link

    I have the StS Delta Insulmug but find its a bit of a lump for packing, end up leaving it behind more often than not.

    Must be a child author. Aluminum, been there done that, long ago. Next week stainless steel.

    I’ve got one of those GSI 3.8oz mugs too. Not in love with the lid. Bump my nose in thebit that folds back. The 450ml ti mug I bought twenty years ago this year still goes on 90% of trips.

    Ha, I was hiking for a few days with a colleague - he was using his Karrimor Jaguar 65 rucsac and his aluminium mug he'd had in Venture Scouts. Proper old skool.

    He bumped into Rose from backpackinglight.co.uk/ a few days ago -m after I'd gone home.

    I love my Ti mug, comes on every trip. It's my pot and my mug on most trips, I don't find I burn my lips (even without the silicon wrist thing around the rim) as the rolled edge doesn't get hot, although it can do if you use a lid (I use a Ti Keith one)

    I have a homemade cosy for it so it stays warm once it's been boiled, love it. It's been on meths, gas, esbit and wood stoves. I've been with me for years
