Introducing three innovative items for your next meal outdoors: Sea to Summit’s X-Bowl, X-Plate, and X-Mug are collapsible hybrids comprised of a rigid, cut-resistant base made of high temperature, food-grade nylon and walls made of food-grade flexible silicone, so they fold flat for compact packing. Each are tough enough to handle chopping with their sturdy nylon base. The silicone sides can withstand temperatures of hot foods and nearby hot surfaces up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. The sides are flexible, so pouring liquids is easy. When collapsed down flat, the X-Mug nest within the X-Bowl, which handily fits into the X-Plate for extra space savings when packed.

Holds 2 cups with markings on inside with cups and ML
Folds flat which is really nice. Like that, it's lightweight and seems durable. Have used it a few times now for hot coffee and tea. Does get a bit hot so may need a glove depending on how hot the water is when you pour it in. Does seem to cool down pretty quickly. Dishwasher safe, have run it through about 4 times. No residual odor from the coffee or tea that I can tell. Would buy again
These had replaced our titanium bowls and mugs to save space in our pack, but we will NEVER use these again. Going back to titanium.
It's pretty flexible which makes it hard to hold with one hand even though it has a rubbery-grip kind of texture (unless maybe you have big hands, I don't know). Also the grippy texture seems to attract lint so it might be a good idea to rinse it before using. The top black rim is a little stiffer, so it's easy to hold with both hands, with the thumbs and forefingers around the rim and the pinkies supporting it at the bottom. I'm a little concerned that maybe collapsing and expanding a lot might wear out the folds and it might crack, but for now there hasn't been any evidence of that happening.
My main gripe with this mug is that although it's supposed to be able to handle temperatures up to 180 degrees, it's not really insulated so it can be too hot too hold, but of course it's still good for cold beverages.
All in all, this is a solid product with a few small annoyances. If you plan to use it for hot drinks (as I was), I'd give it three stars, if you will only have cold drinks, I'd probably give it four.
UPDATE: After several weeks of use, I'm satisfied with this product, I've figured out how to hold it by the rim so I don't get burned and also noticed that it doesn't pour well, but I'd keep my original three star rating.
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!
