We’re all looking for ways to stay hydrated, and this pale lavender acrylic travel mug with matching straw is a really distinctive option. It’s definitely eye catching and a change from all of the stainless steel models out there. Made of a pale purple acrylic with a faceted surface, it has a crystal like appearance that’s very attractive.
The screw-in lid is white plastic, which works wells with the overall style, and has a standard flip top. Based on purchaser reviews, the lid is leak proof just so long as you make sure the flip top clicks audibly into place.
And one feature I particularly like is that the tumbler includes a matching, reusable straw! You can’t close the flip top while the straw is in place, but it’s great that vendors are starting to offer this option.
The travel tumbler has a generous capacity at 22 ounces. That volume is spread over a fairly tall, narrow profile, the better to fit in cup holders or your backpack: it’s 9.5″ tall and about 3.5″ wide at the top. The main body is dishwasher safe in the top rack, but, based on reviewer comments, its seems it’s better to hand wash the lid to extend the life of the o-ring (although you can get replacement lids from the manufacturer).
With double-wall construction, the general consensus is that it does a great job keeping cold drinks cold. It’s apparently not quite as effective keeping drinks hot, but still does the job.
