Best Travel Mug Review


After testing 13 mugs for leaks, spills, heat
retention, and usability, we’ve determined that the CamelBak – Forge is the best travel
mug. We recommend it for its easy-to-drink-from,
spill-proof design, ease of cleaning, and durability. Here’s a list of the top four best travel
mugs: #1 CamelBak – Forge #2 Thermos – Sipp #3 Zojirushi – SM-SA48 #4 Klean Kanteen – Wide So, how did we test? We put each mug through a series of trials,
starting with throwing them in an industrial dryer to put their leak-free claims to the
test. After subjecting them to the spin cycle for
30 minutes we measured how much each mug had leaked. After that, we filled each mug halfway with
liquid then knocked it over to measure how much spilled out. Next, we tested how easy each mug was to clean,
using fluorescent paint to stain, then a UV light to identify any remnants of our drink
that weren’t easily scrubbed away. From there, we measured the temperature at
which the mugs kept our drinks over time. And finally, our most entertaining test, we
dropped all the mugs from varying heights to see how they’d fare. Before going over our top picks, you can check
out links in the description below for more detail on each travel mug. There’s also a link there to the full review
on our blog post. The CamelBack takes the crown for the best travel
mug in our tests. It lost just one drop-of water in our spin-cycle
test, and its easy-to-drink-from design ensures that no drops end up dripping down your neck. It’s easy to clean (though it cannot go
in the dishwasher) and it easily survives a 10-foot drop. The best part? It won’t spill in your bag. And though it did not retain heat as well
as our runner-up, we felt both the convenience of cleaning the mug as well as its well-thought-out
design trumped this result. If your main concern is keeping drinks really
hot, then the Thermos is perfect for you. This mug keeps your drinks toasty all day,
and 15 degrees hotter than the CamelBak. Not to mention, it’s easy to clean given its slightly smaller mouth and it’s machine washable as well. Plus, it was a flawless performer in our leak
test. Now, it didn’t quite reach our top spot
due to its inferior durability. However, you can still drop the Thermos from
a desk with no problem. The Zojirushi comes from a company with a
long history of designing great food and drink containers. It not only stood out to us due to its high-volume
of positive remarks from consumers, but for its state of the art vacuum-sealed insulation
as well. Although it did fare well in our leak-proof
tests it disappointed us with its lack of durability and cleanability. The Klean Kanteen – Wide-Mouth had zero leaks
in our test and it looks great, but we found it surprisingly difficult to open and close
on a consistent basis. Plus, cleaning it requires disassembling more
parts than any other mug in our test. But, in the end, the Klean Kanteen has a great
reputation and reliable insulation in this mug was no issue. Like the video? Have any questions? Don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe. Current subscribers have the chance to win a product giveaway. Check out the description for products links and we’ll see you next time on Your Best Digs.
