This postcard, more than any other I have found, really feels like a text message from the past.

Excellent. I’ve been utilizing the Lifeventure Vacuum mug for quite a
while, but that’s more suitable for going for a
hot drink to your destination, seated and drinking it in one go.
If you’re travelling on the bus or train it’s a real faff to constantly unscrew the Lifeventure
mug lid, handle the resulting condensation drip, take a sip (and only a sip because invariably the metal
rim of the mug is way too hot) and screw the lid
back on – and then only IF you are able to screw it back on correctly, the
Lifeventure mug lid threads are inclined to complete their own thing over time.
Both mine and my girlfriends have almost created
new paths in the plastic thread, and it can be extremely frustrating and time-consuming trying
to get the lid back on properly!
Needless to say, you’ll only discover you didn’t obtain it
back on properly once you realise it returned into your bag or pocket and leaked
That’s not to say the Lifeventure mug isn’t good – but it is more suitable for camping or hiking
So we were buying a similar double-walled design mug with a better lid that’s more worthy of drinking from
on the go.
The 720° mug to date has been excellent. The inner wall looks only a little thinner and
shinier (cheaper looking?) than the Lifeventure mug, but
that is a small quibble. I really like the general look of the mug and the fact that you can sip from any part of the top is great.
It keeps your tea or coffee super-hot too and for quite some time!
So far it’s only been in my jacket pocket so I can’t vouch for how leak proof it is, at some stage I’ll keep it in my own bag to
In summary, somewhat pricey but ultimately it will probably pay for itself if you’re
buying your coffee out and about, most places now provide a discount for using
your own mug.
I bought two of these blind, based purely on positive reviews and I’m really happy with the purchase, I would certainly buy again.
UPDATE. Sometime on, and everyday use, the most truly effective edge of the outer plastic/paint material is coming away.
Only on that area though. I’ve dropped it numerous times and the coating is coming away in those areas too, but that’s
to be likely where dropped. But top of the edge, all around?
Is really a tiny mystery. The Black one my partner uses is absolutely fine.
Would producer care to comment I
