Handle It Well

Take your "coffee to go" to a whole new level. The handle of this handy, portable mug is a carabiner clip, perfect for hanging from a belt loop or bag strap. The sturdy mug is made from double-walled stainless steel, which is better insulation and lighter weight than solid metal. The 12 oz. mug can hold an early morning's worth of coffee, or a generous portion of campfire stew. Made in China

          My guy is a rock climbing freak. I ultimately bought this little surprise for him b/c of the carbiner handle, turns out the sized is perfect & the stainless material the cup is made of is perfect for his rough natured self :-) He's on the road a lot so it is perfect, never has to worry about breaking it. Although, a lid would be nice. No complaints otherwise.

          Comments about D-RING MUG:

          This mug is pretty cool looking, and has a nice weight in the hand if you don't use the handle. I have two significant issues. First, the carabiner handle looks cool but is totally impractical for a mug. It isn't comfortable in the hand. Second, and more importantly, the handle leaks. What I mean is that the mug is actually two layers of stainless steel (which acts as an excellent insulator), and the carabiner is screwed into the outer layer. The problem is that when you submerge the mug in water, the screw holes leak water into that inner air chaimber!

          I was able to take the screws out and caulk up the hole before rescrewing them, so hopefully this will be salvagable. Still, that should really be done as part of the manufacturing process. A cool mug otherwise.

          This sleek, sturdy design is a great way to keep your coffee cup on hand (or on your belt or strap) when you need it. What do you love about the D-Ring Mug?

          It seem kind of tacky to me to have to have a carabiner on just a 12oz coffee mug. Also, why more goods MADE IN CHINA? Nothing Uncommon about this!

          No, Rita. The mug doesn't come with a lid.

          Good idea for a backpacker as well as for camping and attaching to your outside pack. The D-Ring needs to be top of the line though or it becomes trash very quickly as it gets bumped around on your bag

          Nice for campers and festival people (like Burning Man, Rainbow Gatherings, etc.). It may never be a best seller, but there's a niche.

          Like the idea, but don't appreciate the "Made in China" aspect. Perhaps if it were sourced from the US?

          Not my style, but looks cheap. Not sure how easy the handle would be to hold, especially with a metal cup that would tend to get very hot.

          The fact that it has no lid is a huge downside. Not that useful without a lid, just a tacky house mug without it.

          It looks cool,but it has no lid,so it would probably spill if you were to clip to to a belt.

          Looks fairly cheap honestly. With out a lid or sorts, you obviously cannot carry any liquid with you and you would have to wash the cup before traveling with any remnants of liquid in it..Just not exactly that convenient.

          Just because you slap a something that resembles a handle onto a cylinder doesn't make it a mug.

          This cup doesn't have a cover, so you can't have it on your belt loop whilst using it.. Instead you're just carrying around an empty, but dirty, mug all day. Why?
