15 Best Coffee Mugs For Camping

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, OUTDOORS By

There’s nothing quite like waking up to the sun peeking over the horizon and a chorus of birds singing their first songs of welcome to the new day.  The chill of the morning air as you crawl from the cozy confines of your tent whispers of adventure and you’re ready to start the day, just as soon as you get your daily dose of caffeine.  This, of course, is made easier with a trusty camping coffee pot to place over the fire, not to mention your favorite camping mug.

Like everything you carry during extended hiking or camping forays, your coffee implements need to be lightweight, compact, eminently portable, and ideally, multipurpose.  A coffee pot may be a bit too much, in fact, due to its size, but the fact that you can pack it full of socks or dry goods in a pinch doesn’t hurt.  As for your morning coffee mug, you can always find space, even if you have to hang it on the back of your pack with a carabiner.

How can you find that special, one-of-a-kind camping mug that fits your hand perfectly and keeps your brew steamy throughout the cold morning?  Here are some of the best camping coffee mugs for your consideration.

Stanley Classic Vacuum Camp Mug

Stanley Classic Vacuum Camp Mug

Stanley thermoses are legendary, so it only makes sense that you’d hammertone it up when seeking a tough, long-lasting mug to accompany you on all of your outdoor adventures.  This beaut in classic green or navy is good for up to 16 ounces of liquid lightning – aka your morning cuppa joe.  Vacuum insulation keeps it piping hot to the last sip and a leak-resistant lid ensures you won’t lose a drop when those pesky squirrels haunting your campsite make a run for your rations. – Shop Now

Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall 450 Mug

Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall 450 Mug

This sleek and pretty titanium mug adorned with a snowflake might give you pause, but don’t be fooled by the dainty exterior.  Perhaps that snowflake is actually an asterisk designed to let you know you should read the fine print.  Double-walled insulation will keep your hot or cold contents at the appropriate temperature, but you’re really going to love the nifty folding handle that makes this mug incredibly easy to pack.  Holds 15.2 fluid ounces. – Shop Now

Taylor Stitch Camp Mug

Some mornings, the feel of cold metal on your clammy hands is too much to bear.  You’d rather have a classic mug that transfers the heat of your beverage through your flesh and into your bones.  This camp mug in porcelain may not seem ideal for rugged exploration, but if you’re the type that likes to linger by the morning campfire until you sip your way to the grounds at the bottom of the cup, this mug will be your warm companion as you watch the sun rise. – Shop Now

Olicamp Space Saver Mug

Olicamp Space Saver Mug

Fill it to the brim to get a full 24 ounces of steaming hot java.  Or err on the side of caution and stop at the top graduation for just 20 ounces of delicious caffeine.  Single wall anodized steel is lightweight and scratch-resistant, which is great when you’re using a rock for a table.  Use it to boil your breakfast, lunch, and dinner, then flip the handles flat to the sides for compact stowing. – Shop Now

Coleman Enamel Camping Mug

There’s just no denying the nostalgic appeal of that classic, blue speckled enamel.  One look takes you back to childhood camping trips, watching your dad sip coffee out of his dinged-up mug and get grounds caught in the push broom on his upper lip, eliciting giggles from assembled kids.  Trip down memory lane aside, this 12-ounce mug in lightweight steel is one you’ll pass on to your own kids someday. – Shop Now

GSI Outdoors Infinity Backpacker Mug

GSI Outdoors Infinity Backpacker Mug

Let’s just start with the appearance.  This mug looks like a tall boy can wrapped in a shiny canvas koozie.  In essence, that’s pretty close to reality, except you’ll get 17 fluid ounces (as opposed to a tall boy’s 16), the “can” is polypropylene instead of aluminum, and the koozie is made of tough ballistic nylon for insulation.  For added convenience, there’s also a collapsible tarpaulin handle and a sip-it lid to minimize spills. – Shop Now

Vargo Titanium 450 Travel Mug

Vargo Titanium 450 Travel Mug

Titanium construction ensures ultra-light carry paired with incredible durability, which is just what you want on long outings with lots of hiking.  Although the single wall design doesn’t lend itself to insulation like vacuum sealed products do, the upside of this handy camp cup is that you can place it over an open flame to cook your coffee, negating the need for a coffee pot.  Folding handles make for easy storage. – Shop Now

Sea To Summit Delta InsulMug

Sea To Summit Delta InsulMug

Plastic may not seem ideal, but this mug offers 100% BPA-free design, along with a closed-cell, polyurethane skin for insulation so you never burn your hands on a boiling cup of coffee.  This handleless mug is easy to stow and it features a hang loop, in case you don’t have room in your pack.  A sip-through lid reduces chances of spills, ensuring all 16 ounces of coffee or tea makes it into your waiting maw. – Shop Now

Chinook Timberline Camp Mug

Chinook Timberline Camp Mug

This 10-ounce mug provides just enough coffee to open your eyes without sending you scurrying to obey the call of nature midway through packing up your campsite.  Thick, sturdy, stainless steel is meant to hold up to every abuse, from being dropped to pounding down your tent pegs in a pinch.  Single-wall construction makes it a lightweight addition to your gear and butterfly handles fold to the sides for compact stowing. – Shop Now

Miir Camp Cup

Miir Camp Cup

This 12-ounce, medical-grade stainless steel camp cup in black, white, or blue has the spare and streamlined sensibilities of Scandinavian design, and is fittingly billed as the “modern take on Grandpa’s old camp cup”.  Thermo 3D double wall vacuum insulation preserves interior temperature without transfer, so you don’t have to worry about singing your mitts, and the press fit lid means you won’t accidentally spill and scald yourself.  Hey, safety first. – Shop Now

MSR Stainless Steel Insulated Mug

MSR Stainless Steel Insulated Mug

The trapezoidal shape of this 12-ounce mug seems odd at first, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the utility with which you can drink thicker liquids like soup or oatmeal from it.  The camp-friendly design is clearly intended for beverages other than coffee, but a lid makes it easy to sip thinner fluids, as well.   Durable stainless steel is insulated by a removable EVA foam sleeve that goes right in the washing machine. – Shop Now

GSI Outdoors Collapsible Fairshare Mug

GSI Outdoors Collapsible Fairshare Mug

When it comes to utility, it doesn’t get much better than collapsible dishes that stow flat and pop up to accommodate foods and beverages.  This collapsible cutie in polypropylene holds up to 22 fluid ounces when popped and features a folding handle that locks into two positions for eating and drinking versus measuring and scooping.  The screw-top, sealing lid keeps contents in and pests out and it’s great for rehydrating meals. – Shop Now

Kelty Built Mountains Coffee Mug

Kelty Built Mountains Coffee Mug

Kelty is renowned for their functional, durable, and surprisingly stylish camping goods.  When their crack design team turned their attention to the crucial task of creating a camp cup, it should come as no surprise they came up with a 16-ounce ceramic tumbler complete with a wooden handle for extra panache.  The push-on, slide lock lid prevents spills for those who like to get an early start and sip on the trail. – Shop Now

Best Made Seamless & Steadfast Enamel Mugs

Best Made Seamless & Steadfast Enamel Mugs

This 20-ounce enamelware steel mug in white, mess hall tan, or royal navy blue is easy to find in a full pack thanks to a red X that marks the spot.  Even better is what it can do when unpacked.  Place it over an open flame to cook your coffee or vittles, and easily rinse it out to stow away once again.  The addition of interior markings makes measuring a cinch. – Shop Now
