Kleen Kanteen travel mug

This thing is built like a tank – insulated metal that keeps coffee hot all morning. The top also comes apart so that it can be completely cleaned.  The top doesn’t leak, which has been an issue for me in the past with travel mugs, but Klean Kanteen sells extra lids if this one wears out. 10/10 recommendation.
