This is a very high quality flexible silicone cup that has decent insulating qualities for both hot and cold drinks and even food. I purchased one of these for my son (in lime green) and he used it as both his cup and bowl on his Boy Scout troop's 50-mile, five-day trek in the middle of winter. Collapsed, it nestles easily in to many chow kits, or can fit in a cargo pocket.

It beats carrying a stainless steel camp cup when you need to reduce weight and bulk.

UPDATE (JULY 2012):

I purchased one of these in blue for myself after my son raved about his. Just got back from a 12-day, 80-mile trek at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico and used the XMug several times when one of my crew members needed my stainless mug for his coffee. I had hot cider in it one night and the next day I went to have coffee in it and could still smell the cider. I had washed the mug out thoroughly. I had coffee a couple more times in the mug and found a trace of the cider scent still lingering. When I got home I washed-up all my gear, including the XMug. It retained the coffee scent.

When you participate in a trek at Philmont, rangers warn of the need to keep "smellables" out of the reach of bears, squirrels, and chipmunks. He kept a hard plastic bowl with him and warned that the silicone dishes like the XMug would become a smellable and would have to go up in a bear bag. That turned out to be a bit of a pain after every dinner meal.

I dropped the original 5-star rating down to a 4 because it seems to absorb some of the food odors. I will still keep this in my backpack for its compact design, but I'm going back to my stainless mug for my coffee.

There have been many articles written about housekeeping staff not cleaning glasses between guests. I am sure most do, but I travel in third world countries and I am sure not washing a class is not a big issue for some.

Instead of using the hotel glasses - I use the Summit X Mug.

These mugs / glasses take up no room and have practically any weight. They collapse down to nothing and will easily fit in any bag.

Each mug holds 2 cups of water.

A perfect design and excellent manufacturing.

Cup is great! However the design engineers let the product down in my opinion. Why you ask! Well there is no lid to keep cup clean in storage. I carry mine in my back pocket to save on the cost of beverages you would have to buy to take your medications. I have over come this problem by putting it in a sandwich bag to keep pocket lint and any other contaminates out. All other telescoping travel cups I have owned in the past have come with a cover for cleanliness. Perhaps the maker will take this under consideration.

I am a SUL/XUL hiker, as well as a long distance hiker with a few thousand miles of hiking. While I do not use this for any XUL hikes, it does goes with me on every long distance hike and nearly all of my SUL hikes.

On my calibrated scale the StS X Mug is 62.38 grams in total weight. This makes it well below the 78 grams that the manufacturer states.

It was a hard choice for me to put my Ti cup in a box and put this thing into my backpack given the weight difference between it and, for example, the MLD 475 Titanium Mug (45 grams) but sometimes bulk space means more than ten or twenty grams of weight.

I use it for drinking water, for drinking tea and coffee, I use it for scoping water from trail water sources, I use to store fruit and berries I collect while hiking, and it makes a great way to carry a small amount of gorp so I do not have to hike with a full bag open.

For me the decision to buy and carry this was all about the compactness (bulk size) of this product. When you are hiking with sub 3000 cubic inch backpacks, space is at a premium and this little X Mug fits just about anywhere!

I bought 2 of these mugs after using a Sea to Summit Collapsible Plate for the past 2 years. While these are "cool" looking, light and collapse down really small, they are kind of squishy to hold and not the easiest to clean due to the ridges and the material (the rubber likes to hold on to things). It also is hard to hold if you are drinking hot liquids (no insulation, so wear gloves). All in all, they've served the purpose. They've come in really handy since I generally keep them in my pack and you don't always think of how useful a cup can be on a hiking trip. I've had to share due to buddies not having anything like this. All in all...a nice item to have in your pack.

I've had this collapsible, dishwasher-safe, and microwaveable mug since October 2011. Unfortunately, I've learned to dislike it. Yes, it looks cool. Plus, it has a space-saving design that makes the mug easy to insert virtually anywhere. Regardless, the mug hasn't served me well; its effective use is only for room-temperature or cold drinks. That's because this 2-cup-capacity (16 oz.) mug inflicts pain as it transmits the blistering heat to the hand that holds it after microwaving a liquid.

If that's not bad enough, the mug then prevents smelling and tasting the true aroma and flavor of the beverage. After microwaving, there's a plastic odor so strong that the stench grossly overpowers the liquid's smell and flavor. And since the taste of the microwaved liquid has changed unfavorably, what chemical from this mug do you think may have seeped into the liquid? Should you then decide to drink it, you'll do so in a weird position of fingertip-pinching the rim. That's the only part that offers heat protection.

To me, those disadvantages merit a 1-star rating. I didn't, however, because the mug's rugged nature salvaged a better grade. But since I already own it, I stow it into my bag. I would then use it for on-the-go toothbrushing or quick hydration from a tap or cooler. And of course, the mug is handy for camping for its portability. So if your liquid won't undergo the malodorous and bad-tasting side-effects of microwaving, then this X Mug is a great buy. Otherwise, if the situation requires nuking your liquid, then a traditional mug is still a far better, safer, and wiser choice.
