Pre-dawn starts driving to the mountains, rubbing sleep from your eyes and powered only by coffee; clutching a mug of tea while you wait for your breakfast to heat up, stove sputtering as it burns through the morning dew...
We can probably all agree that there’s ‘nowt’ worse than a hot beverage which has ceased to be a hot beverage and has transitioned rapidly and unexpectedly into a distinctly lukewarm beverage. A moment of contemplation please for all the forgotten cups of tea, poured mercilessly down the sink, never to fulfill their potential.
Don’t worry, the insulated Kelvin mug is here to save hot drinks at campsites across the land from their grim and inevitable fate. Made from super lightweight yet tough titanium the Kelvin uses a twin wall construction to keep your hot drinks warm for longer. A silicone rubber cap adds extra insultation and has an in-built drinking spout so you can sip easily from it without losing any of that precious heat. Never rush a hot chocolate again.
Note: this mug is not designed to be used on a stove. Doing so could be potentially dangerous so don't do it!

Titanium is one of the most abundant elements on earth. Lightweight and very very strong. It is super inert - this is a benefit environmentally as it is recyclable plus its resistance to corrosion means it doesn’t pollute air, land and oceans. But it also makes for superb cookware as there’s no metallic taste.
Note: this mug is not designed to be used on a stove. Doing so could be potentially dangerous so don’t do it!

Great bit of kit
Just taken delivery of the new version with oversized silicone lid... Brilliant.
No metallic taste, no leaks when drinking, great size, comfy to hold and keeps hit drinks just right.
Love it! Light, well made, keeps drinks warm and comfy rim for drinking. Only down side is price. I bought two for day trips and my sons use them all the time at home so now I've had to order 2 more! But at least they are on offer at the moment. Would be good if Alpkit made a coffee less that fitted them.
First impression out of the box is that this is a well made, sturdy cup, made from quality materials. Very lightweight, bought to replace a much heavier stainless steel thermal mug. Feels comfortable in the hand, the folding wire handle was comfortable to hold with, and without, wearing gloves.
The cup was bought in order to keep drinks warm to the last mouthful whilst drinking outdoors. Essential now the temperature is dropping.
A previous reviewer raised concern over the design of the lid, especially the ability to wash the plastic parts. The concerns raised are valid, but to be honest this is a problem you would encounter with other brands who use this design. This would not be an issue personally as it was purchased to keep drinks warm, not to use as a spill resistant travel mug.
I found that if you twist the lid slightly as you are pressing it on the cup, the seal fits more securely and snugly onto the cup rim. Important if you are using it as a spill resistant travel mug. The key word here is RESISTANT. Don't try and turn the cup upside down.
I look forward using this bit of kit for a long time given its quality. It even comes with a nifty mesh bag to help stop scratches in the rucksack.
I would recommend this bit of kit.
Awesome travel mug. Perfect for those who love a fine brew or excellent expresso
My task was to finally enjoy ones favourite drinks on the go without tainting the flavour of the drink.
Having trailed several other cups I was getting a little fed up of having my various Tea Pigs or the double Aero Press shot of expresso flavour spoilt. Then along came Alpkit's Kelvin.
The double-walled titanium construction keeps hot liquids hot (or cold liquids cold) for well over an hour (dependant on outside temperatures) and the external finish ensures a safe and secure grip. The lid is effective at stopping spills.
Its such as good mug, that for the last 2 years its been my daily mug of choice for the office. One day soon, when they are back in stock I will by a second (for my Wife) and a third for the original camping purpose!
The Holy Grail of travel mugs
Finally... a travel/camping mug which is lightweight, keeps things warm and doesn't taste odd.
I have been on a 3-year odyssey to throw money at the next hippest, barista-standard, cork-clad reusable mug to wield on various train trips,larking about the coffee shops of Bristol and even the odd camping trip.
Now my soul can rest easy. This mug is lighter than all those others, the lid seals better AND IT STAYS WARM. And best of all, it doesn't subject my tongue to unusual flavours that taint my M&S Gold or single origin latte as soon as they pass from even glass or ceramic vessels through a plastic lid.
Aluminium double-walled flask-cup - warm but odd tastes embed themselves.
I am not a paper cup - correct, but you are china/ceramic and very heavy.
Keep Cup glass limited edition with cork grip band - what a delight to both hold and behold, until something goes in... it's almost too hot to cradle (other than narrow cork band), before magically becoming too cold to drink and tasting odd, which seems to be a side effect of the plastic lid. Fine if you are in a warm cafe and keep the lid off, but not the usual domain of a mug for the busy keep-moving-or die user of public transport or wanderer of the streets.
Thank you, Alpkit. Now we just have to persuade the cart vendors on trains to accept reusable mugs...
Got to love this mug
I know it's a four star rating; but you have to love this mug. Perfectly leight weight and durable. Nice comfortable handles just the right size. The only slight gripe as other have also said the lid doesn't like staying put. Apart from this very pleased.
Nearly a good mug
An insulated titanium mug with a lid for under thirty quid? That's a must have......So I bought one, but I wish I'd read the reviews first.
The mug itself is fine, lightweight, a good size and does what it is supposed to...….keeps your drinks hot.
The lid however is a different story...….The lid is a court case waiting to happen.....It won't stay on.
The problem is the lid doesn't sit deep enough into the mug consequently any slight nudge to the lid …..even the sloshing of the drink pops it off. With a hot drink the lid becomes slightly more secure once it has reached the same temperature as the rest of the mug but this is not instant and is only slightly better.
If I'd read the reviews I'd have realised this is a known issue with this mug...….I emailed Alpkit regarding this nd they advised me to twist the lid as I seated it...…...I had already one so …..but the fault lies with the lid and not the user.
However don't despair, it turns out that a Klean Kanteen pint lid fits perfectly...….now these cost about a fiver...….which is obviously a pain but you get a great mug and lid for 35 Quid.
You shouldn't have to buy an addon however...….Alpkit need to put this right before someone gets badly scalded
Mug 4 and a bit stars …….lid …….no stars
Great but let down by the lid.
Brought 2, 1 for me and 1 for the missus to be used on our day hikes, so not a cheap investment. The double wall is fab and keeps fluids (hot choc) warm, unlike our old mugs.
I did read in a past comment about the lid popping off but thought I would give them a go and it is true. The lid does pop off although not just with hot fluids inside, the plastic tops just need a few more mil to keep em secure inside the mug. So I would not trust the lid staying on but with that said.... I'm gonna keep em as we dont need the lids and may even bin em. If the lads get slightly bigger lids I may get a couple but till then am ok with the mugs.
Lid works only if it's cold. As long as you pour in hot drink the lid is not staying in place and opening up. :(
Let down by the lid design.
Normally a big fan of Alpkit gear but this falls way short of the mark. The terrible design of the lid means it pops off when full of hot drink. I'm on my second Kelvin after the first was replaced with the exactly the same problem so this is not a one-off.
As an aside, even if the lid did not pop off, the lid mechanism is difficult to clean.
Hi, thanks for the feedback. The feedback has been read by the Product Team. I’m sorry that this has happened with your second Kelvin - that is super unlucky. I will send you an email now to arrange a return should you wish.
