Travel mugs are everywhere. So why does Sweet Maria's even bother selling products that you can find at department stores, convenient stores, and gas stations? If you travel or commute a lot, a high quality, durable mug is important. Those cheap-o coffee vessels with leaky lids, thin walls and plastic interiors walls are bad news when it comes to serious daily usage.
All the travel mugs we carry are ones we use ourselves. They are vetted by our personal experience with them. They are durable, easy to clean and have a variety of capacities. Yes these brands may be a little more expensive but we have come to trust them based on experience: we trust their performance and durability.
A good travel mug or bottle needs to be easy to use too. We stay away from offering mugs with complicated levers and tight crevices. Mechanized flip tops and fancy lids are cool but after a few months, develop goop and residue (yuck) that is hard to clean, even in a dishwasher.
Nissan Leak-Proof Travel Mug
We have been selling this mug for years and it's still an employee favorite because of it's simplicity and durability. It's made to take a beating, keeps your coffee hot and is comfortable to drink from. The handle may seem cumbersome but after using it for the first time, you will find that it doesn't get in the way at all. The carabiner is great for hanging your mug from a backpack. You can always remove it if it bugs you....
