Hot drinks really get you going—burned lips do not.

- Includes mug and HotLips mouth guard
- Item #SNO0107
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Its been out on afew hikes with me and I snuck it into the office once. I don't think anyone would have noticed, but the mouth guard isn't isn't completely inconspicuous. I have managed to loose the mouth guard inside my pack once or twice, but that is my only complaint. Its thick enough to warm up my hands on a chilly morning (with gloves on), and keep my coffee warm at the while I pack up. Its big enough to use as a soup bowl in the evening, and it fits my camp stove inside perfectly. My fuel canister, not so much. Oh, and its super lite! Awesome mug!

This is my cook pot used primarily to heat water as I cook my food through hydration in a ziplock freezer bag.
Holds MS micro rocket, igniter and fuel canister.
Leave the hot lips at home now don't find much use for it as it.
Love this mug!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The hotlips mug is lightweight and sturdy, sure. But this mug can also be used to cook in, it cleans easily, and I can fit a small fuel canister and a few packets of oatmeal in it while I'm not using it. Couldn't ask for a better all around mug.

I have used SP for years. Love the Ti stuff. I like that my stove fits inside the 600 cup. The hot lips are a must!! only takes that first time of burning your lips to figure that one out.

"That's too hot to touch!"
If you want one item to act as your pot and then switch roles and become your mug, this'd be the ticket. It has plenty of volume for boiling 16oz of water. Although, I did not find the Hot Lips very useful because my bottom lip continually made contact with the mug and did get burnt. I wasn't born big gummed and I don't have Angelina size lips. So I've opted to let my drink cool a bit more and leave the yellow guys at home. I'd still recommend this mug over the same model without the Hotlips seeing as you get some coffee with the deal.
If you do use it as your mug, I suggest lining the handles with climbing tape so you don't burn your fingers picking it up. It's a very small weight penalty. You can also make a lightweight lid for it out of thick tin foil to decrease boil times.
A Nice Twist on an Already Proven Design
If you're looking for a good quality, lightweight solution to your cookware needs on your next backpacking trip, then the Snow Peak Hotlips is a great choice! Already a tried and true design with the 600 titanium mug, the silicone "hotlips" simply slides over the rim of the mug, and as the name suggests helps prevent you from burning your lips on a hot cup of coffee or tea. I was a little skeptical as to how well the silicone piece would hold up as it seemed pretty flimsy when I opened the box but after having used it several times it shows no sign of wear or breakdown. As far as the cup itself goes, it's perfect for the lightweight backpacker intending to cook and eat out of it, super light, doesn't take up much space in the pack and has good heat transfer so I've come to rely on it over my bigger bulkier MSR cookset on most days.
Anyone know if this sits well on top of a MSR Whisperlite stove?

Does anyone know if the Hotlips can be used on the Stoic Ti Kettle as well?
I don't own the Stoic kettle, so I would only give you about 98% certainty on this one. The Hotlips are made of silicone and fit my Trek 700, so diameter isn't going to be an issue. Both flanges look about the same, and that's what holds the Hotlips on...I say go for it, for whatever that's worth.
Here's a closeup photo of the Hotlips to give you an idea of how they hook over the flange. Without the cup, each set (which can be purchased separately) comes with two and costs about $7.
Based on the excellent advice from Phil above, I bought the Hotlips and they do indeed fit the Ti Kettle. Just in case anyone was wondering :p.

Does this have gradation markings? Judging from the picture I would say no but just want to check to make sure.
No, these do not have graduated markings, however, being that it is so small, it is pretty easy to eyeball what you need. Or you could mark it on the outside...
I used a scratch awl to mark out one cup.
Bj And Emily's awl solution is something I've also done to a few pieces of kit (at 4oz increments though), but it's also fairly easy to eyeball it. A couple watery bags of Chili Mac and you figure it out real fast. Short the water in the 600 by about 3/4" and you're almost right on for a 2-serving freeze dried meal that requires the pretty standard 16oz of water.

Can you tell me if this will fit over the bottom of a standard 1 liter Nalgene bottle to reduce pack volume?
