I bought this to replace an old Nissan Thermos which was awesome, but the lid got damaged so it didn't hold the heat as well as before.
This was a great choice. It keeps my coffee hot, longer than my old. In fact a hot chocolate, or coffee stays hot in it for 4 hours and it still very warm after 6. Pretty amazing actually.
It looks and feels great. Cleaning is a little more work than my previous, but it's not too bad. There are more parts (5 for the lid), that I'm not sure I want to put in the dishwasher. My one complaint is the unprotected bottom. The previous mug had a plastic covered bottom which protected it from denting on drops. This could use something like that. I've dented mine already and now it has a little wobble on the bottom, which is annoying. One other (minor) thing is that it's hard to see the sip holes on the black lid, which isn't great for driving if you have to look to make sure you won't spill on each sip. A little mark or a dimple you could feel for with your hands or lip would be a nice touch.
To sum up, it's a 5-star traveller. Probably the best out there.
