Handy, but not 100% water tight

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This mug is great because it is the right size for every type of food. 7.5 oz might be a lot for ultralighters, but it does multipurpose as storage, mixing bowl, plate (wide enough to stuff pancakes in) measuring cup. Easy to clean. My most dreaded part of backpacking is cleaning, and this is the easiest thing to clean ever. That said, no matter how tight I make the lid it still leaks a little with sufficient shaking. From the other reviews that say its watertight I assume I just got one with a bunk lid. Still pleased with it, but the main reason I got it was for easier leftover storage and putting off dishes.

Update: I contacted GSI about it not being watertight, they told me it must be defective, so I went to REI and they replaced it. It is watertight, now it is the dream kitchen-ware I always wanted. So easy to clean
