Travel muggery…

July 31, 2010

Looking for the Vitalyte, I found this collapsible mug:

“Collapsible bellows design collapses to 1.7 high disc.¬†Folding handle folds flat or extends to lock in two positions for eating and drinking or for scooping and measuring.¬†Sure-sealing lid made of Infinity Clear Polypropylene screws into the rim of the mug to keep your meals in and the outdoors out.”

Pro: space saver

Con: Handle seems mildly useless, nothing to hook it onto something with

Pro: How can you not like a company with romance on their mind?

Pro: you can measure with it

PRO: I just found out there’s an REI store about two hours from my haus…mmmmmm….camping gadgets whoring…

Con: Don’t get this shower, it sucks

Sea to Summit Pocket Shower

I used it once, it was OK. A pain in the butt if you can’t get it high enough (because you’re short and/or there aren’t any trees to hang it from. AKA: me), but still pretty handy for water storage, if nothing else. Except the second time, I filled it up, hung it, and woke up to a large wet spot and not much water left.

The nozzle, even when fully twisted shut, leaks and drips. Yes, it is compact and lightweight and easy to use, but, if a shower doesn’t hold water, you can’t use it!
