    Massive Stanley fan.

    We have quite a few of their products. Mostly the flasks, and cups, but I also have some camping stuff from them.

    I also have some YETI stuff I was given, but in all seriousness, they work much the same, which is very well.

    I have twice now driven over Stanley products in the hilux. Once the full vacuum flask, it only has a minor split on the silver base and the top little cup doesnt screw on so well anymore, and the second was a little insulated plastic cup I got with a mess kit, and that was driven into the ground at Linyanti and survived.

    I know its expensive, but looking back now, I would happily pay the price again for the service I got out of the products.

    And they fit in the centre console cup holders...

    I'll send a photo.
    I need to replace my travel mug - why do you prefer this type over the trigger mug? (I have not tried either - I have seen the trigger mug in the past but could quite get "it").

    I have a trigger mug and its not fun, but you can remove the trigger. Often you burn your lips on it I have found with the trigger.

    Very much so... or until you SPILL a FULL MUG, almost 500ml of coffee with CREAM (not milk)...CREAM over the seats! I think that smell is still in the vehicle after 2 years!
    These NEVERLEAK models were about R650 each if I remember correctly.

    Thanks.
    Exactly for the reason JadeDSantos mentions above - when the temperature is not perfect drinking temperature, you can easily burn your lips, so I was kidding about the slurping, but it actually does help to cool down the sip you're taking. But I think it actually does depend a bit on the cap setup, that the trigger-cap might actually also be OK.

    I think the principle is very much the same, both having a little rubber-type sealer pushing against the drinking hole, the trigger mechanism is just different to the screw type - having a screw-type mechanism that turn the rubber-seal against the drinking opening.

    We chose the Stanley specifically because the cap can disassemble into 3 separate parts for cleaning and I think all parts are replaceable, i.e. can be purchased separate.

    *Edit: Also, the trigger mug we have (not Stanley though), leaks! It is not a 100% tight seal. It fell over onto the floor and spilled coffee. Same falling over has happened with the Neverleaks and they really seal well so far, no leaks. (When we're walking out the house to the vehicle, my wife has even thrown them into her handbag/carry bag/purse and not a drop leaked out.) So far, so good with the sealing!

    For me trigger is better as it is one action, press, hold,drink, release. With the screw type not that easy with one hand?

    Reading a few reviews the trigger system works well but it’s difficult to clean properly and is a failure point. I was planning on getting one after reading this thread but the rotating lid seems far more robust and should fair better longterm.

    I love Stanley products and have a few myself that I bought some time ago. Problem for me is:

    Some of these "supposedly" 4x4 and camping shops are bloodsuckers and try to make inflated margin on these items that some will never be able to afford. Justifying a R100 increase on one of these products over 2 months is insane! This was my experience 2 days ago. Paying R599 for a coffee mug is just crazy in my eyes.

    I have one of these, and I love it.

    You can burn your hand a bit when lifting the pot up, but besides that, its a great piece of kit.

    I use one for heating the milk for the coffee when camping, works nice on small hiking gas stove.

    I chucked the cups, they are solid and well build, but small.

    I loved the look of this and bought one years ago, but eventually gave it away.
    As mentioned in previous post, the width of the pot makes it great for hiking stove with a small burner. But the depth and steel thickness means it takes longer to boil on a hiking stove than say titanium wider pot, and I only carry one pot when hiking. I tried using for milk also previously mentioned, but found it not easy to clean being so narrow and deep. Also realized I can't abide thick plastic mugs.

    In the end it's up to personal preferences and uses of course

    Camp and Climb had some decent markdowns on many of their Stanley cups when I was there during the week, that was at the Paarden Eiland branch, may also be on at the Bellville branch and online.

    What have you got from them that is interesting and useful?

    This is my newest favorite:







    I used to collect braaiers/outdoor cooking machines.

    My wife made me promise to stop

    So now I find reasons to get the Stanley products.
    For anyone looking to buy one these, they are now on special at Camp&Climb for R345-00!

    I still find it amazing how cheap stuff is in the States. I know you can't convert but R550 vs R1,300/R1,400 here for the 1.9L and that's with our bang average exchange rate. Even with shipping added from US it's still R200/R300 cheaper that here in the shops.

    I don't think "cheap" in the US, it is rather that they are expensive here. Semantics I know but quite a bit of gouging going on in SA; IMHO of course.
