    What brand mug?

    Starting to think about the fall deer hunt. I need a mug that will keep my coffee warm for 2+ hrs. Suggestions please!
    Not a thermos, just a mug.

    Ive been using this at work for years. Cold winters in a steel mill and still hot coffee for hours.

    Can be had for $25 at WalMart

    My yeti keeps mine warm for hours, I work in the mornings, so I don't have time to just sit and drink it.

    I most likely will not buy a yeti again, due to their treatment of the NRA.

    My mossy oak from Walmart is just as good, and probably made in the same factory in China.

    I won't say all are the same, watch for the cheapest brands that have a running seam inside cup, avoid those. Any in rough yeti shape, Ozark trails, rtic, mossy oak, are the same and will keep coffee warm, and ice solid for a long time.

    I received one of these for Christmas from my son. I cut firewood in the winter and on a ten degree day it will keep coffee hot for at least four hours (assuming you don't drink any so the cup stays full). It also works great at keeping cold stuff cold.

    It's been a long time since I hunted deer . . . just curious . . when you take your coffee to the woods to deer hunt, do the deer bring the doughnuts?

    When I did hunt, I probably SHOULD have taken coffee to the woods with me. I can remember taking some of my best "naps" sitting leaned back against a tree, my warm wool clothing pulled up around my neck, sitting on a blanket folded up on a cold November day in the Michigan woods! LOL

    The deer bring raisins.....


    Before Yeti pulled their stunt I bought a cup and two handles for my wife. I went to Walmart and got an Ozark trail brand. I did notice that the sticker said not to put the Ozark trail cup in the dishwasher, but the cap was ok . Yeti said theirs was dishwasher safe. Beyond that I have seen no difference.

    My wife and I both have 20oz RTIC double wall tumblers. If you preheat them with hot water before pouring your coffee in they will keep it from loosing much temp for several hours.

    I use mine while I'm working for ice water and last week in 100+ degree heat I still had ice in my cup after 9 hours and several fill-ups with fresh water.

    We chose RTIC over Yeti because after reading lots of reviews and comparisons they both seemed to work equally well but the RTIC was much cheaper and now that Yeti has kicked the NRA it's just one more reason to choose RTIC.
    The Bill of Rights - Void were prohibited by law.
    Soap Box, Ballot Box, Jury Box, Ammo Box. Which one of these is still working properly?

    My Wife and I both have Yeti and they work great. The Ozark Trail and Rtic are cheaper and like another poster said, probably made in the same chinese factory. Some of the plastic Big Gulp cups work well too.

    Walmart brand Ozark. Yes, they work just as well as mugs costing several times more. After Yeti's little spat with The NRA I wouldn't touch that oversized Gucci Brand with a ten ft pole. Your paying for a name much like North Face, Patagonia etc. Why support a company that doesn't like you?

    Laugh but my friend uses sugar donuts in a baitpile. I thought he was crazy but he showed me gamecam pictures with the deer eating the heck out of them and having powdered sugar all over their faces.

    RTIC, Pelican, ORCA Side With NRA

    It appears RTIC, ORCA, and Pelican capitalized on YETI’s lag. Whereas its competitors made unwavering statements in support of the Second Amendment, YETI posted a longwinded statement. And followers have been harshly critical.

    Frankly, this really doesn't have an effect on me as I wouldn't spend that much on an overpriced cooler but the idea that a company would tell me that they don't want my business much like Gander Outdoors makes it certain I wouldn't buy their product even if I found one second hand.

    I found a couple black ozark trail mugs at Walmart on clearance for $5. They are 30 oz and work just as well as my rtic and yeti tumblers. Yes I drink almost 30 oz of coffee in the morning but it takes a while and these thermal mugs work great.

    For the price of those overpriced coolers, I'll have a young lass deliver a fresh cup and a smile to me whenever I want it.
    Call me cheap, but that extravagance is ridiculous. It's like paying the enemy to laugh at us.
