The Adventure Life with Steve Casimiro Gear Review: This Mug is Hot Right Now, So Hot

A journalist could spend all day hunting and gathering statistics and in the end not be able to verify them anyway, so I’m going to save my energy and tell you that I’ve read, but not confirmed, that the United States consumes 14 billion paper coffee cups a year. And whether you care about this obligatory Earth Day hook and its sneaky concomitant pressure to waste less, you need to know that the Thermos Leak-Proof Travel Mug is the best coffee container I’ve ever used. And this is coming from a guy who’s used a lot of coffee containers…14 billion, perhaps.
The unbreakable LPTM rocks because it doesn’t leak. I’ve carried this sucker all over the world. I’ve carried it full of joe inside my camera pack. I take it with me when I travel and hand it politely to every barista I meet. Not one drip, though I can’t say the same for a few of the baristas.
It also keeps liquids hotter, longer, than any thermal mug I’ve used. And the design of the lip means that I rarely slosh coffee on myself. And this is coming from a guy who knows sloshing.
It costs 28 bucks and you can buy it online directly from Thermos. I’ve given one to my wife, my mom, and my sister-in-law. I’d give one to you, too, but I don’t know your address. Oh, and the “Ski Wyoming” modification? I’m afraid that costs extra.
