Expedition stove and cookware brand SOTO has launched two insulated cups that will work well for camping trips. They include the SOTO Aero Espresso Cup and Aero Mug.
SOTO Aero Espresso Cup
The 120ml Aero Espresso Cup has a double-walled titanium construction. It weighs only 48g.
The handle folds almost flat to the side of the cup when not in use to help with storage,.
SOTO Aero Mug & Aero Mug
Also made out of titanium, the SOTO Aero Mug has a 450ml capacity. The double-walled material is also food safe, so it could also be used for stew, casserole or soup, as wel as hot drinks.
My thoughts: SOTO Aero Espresso Cup
The cup is lightweight but robust and easy to pop into a hiking or camping pack. It’s ideal for people who like a small but strong shot of coffee. I prefer a longer coffee with milk, so the larger mug is better for me.
The thermal conductivity of titanium means hot drinks stay hot, while cold drinks stay cold, yet you don’t feel the full effects of the hot or cold on the skin of your hands.
It’s great to have a camping cup that also looks good. I like the simple, classic design.
These are not cheap but I am sure they will prove to be very long lasting.
The SOTO Aero Espresso Cup & Aero Mug would make great birthday or Christmas gifts.
