The Primus Vacuum Commuter mug is a BPA free stainless steel insulated mug, that does away with fiddly handles and lid and provides a great thermos mug for your car or bike. It has a powder coated stainless steel finish making it really tough and a mug that will last for years.
The screw on lid has a simple yet effective push button system to keep your drink from spilling and because it uses silicone seals rather than a hole cover you can really slosh the cup around. The narrow base of the mug means it also fits into car cup holders which many thermos mugs do not. The shape of the mug means it will also fit into a bike bottle cage for those that cycle to work but still need their coffee.

Excellent product. Have tried similar products in the past but they all do not keep drinks hotter for longer than the Primus. This is my second one and received in very good time. Fully recommend.
Firstly I have to admit to being a massive fan of these mugs (everyone in the family has one and they all love them) and here's why:
I used the Primus Commuter mug throughout my military service, in fact I had two, one for soup and one for brews. I have continued with them on my civilian walking/climbing trips. The mug is well made and robust, and has a slightly textured finish, fitting easily into a side pouch or outer layer pocket.The push button release makes a reassuring click when opened /closed so that you can put it away knowing it won't leak. It is easy to use with gloves on. It keeps drinks/ soup hot/cold as required and holds approximately 0.4 of a litre and will keep drinks hot or cold to your preference. The mug also fits into most car cup holders. Simple kit that works very well. Highly recommended.
This is the first vacuum mug/flask I've had to buy in about ten years, but cold tomato soup at a summit cairn in the snow and wind is a depressing experience and I knew it was time for a new one. Eventually I settled on this, largely because of all the good reviews it's had, and I have to say it has easily lived up to them. It's kept both coffee and soup (but not at the same time, you understand - now that would be a good trick) perfectly hot for up to five hours in a pack. The stainless steel interior is easy to clean, although you do have to separate the lid into it's three parts; this is easily done, but be careful not to lose the relatively small push button which opens the seal and allows you to drink without taking the lid off.
At 350g weight isn't an issue at all, certainly nowhere near as much as cold tomato soup is.
This is a really excellent item and I thoroughly recommend it.
Superb product - burnt my tongue several times well over an hour since it was filled!!
Bought this when my plastic version of this hit the floor, due to gravity. (I later patched it right up with super glue, so now I have both cups)
The first thing I noticed it how much longer it stays warm in the metal one. I scorched my tongue after three hours, so this is not what you necessarily want at your office, the day will be over before you can drink from it. This was after I had finished drinking the tea I had in the plastic one.
Other then the small problem of it been to good, everything is as I want with it. Easy to clean, easy to use and just the right size.
Recommendation: If you want to use it at the office, go for the plastic one. If you want to use it outside, or like your liquid burning hot, or is a clutch (like me) go for the metal one.
I have had versions of these mugs for nearly 10 years. The last ones I bought 4 years ago (still got the original 10 year old ones too), they were going strong with daily use until I decided to clean two them of the 'slightly' stale smell left from being under the car seat for a few days (well maybe a week or so!!) DO NOT clean these by soaking them in dishwasher tablets-the buttons won't seal now!!! We love these mugs, they are the best on the market, they get left on top of the car and fly off when you drive away and stay intact and the tea stays hot for HOURS. Just learn from my mistake and you'll have many happy drinks together! :)
I had been looking for a decent thermo cup for a while before I purchased a Primus Commuter Stainless. This cup is the best I have seen so far - even if I cannot give it full five stars.
Pros: Solid build, excellent insulation - keeps your coffee/tea/whatever hot for 6 hours. After 4 hours I still burn my tongue if not careful. Can of course be used to keep cool beverages cool.
Cons: The lid is difficult to clean properly. The open/close button on both cups I've bought decided to give up after little over a year and now stay locked open only occasionally.
Tips: Heat up the cup before pouring your coffee in. Wait for the air inside the cup to heat up before you toss the cup into a bag - if the pressure keeps building inside the closed cup you might get some leakage.
This is an excellent thermomug! I have found that the Primus Commuter Mug in Stainless Steel keeps drinks hot for about 2 hours and does not leak at all even when inverted and shaken. It is good to hold with rugged construction and fits into the drinks holder of all the cars I have used. A modified design of lid means disassembly of the mechanism makes it very easy to clean. The only slight drawback that I have found is there is no handle and initially, the lid feels like it would be easy to cross thread but tend not to have any problems with it now.
I absolutely love this mug. Iíve tried almost the entire range of outdoor-type mugs but none satisfies me like this one. Itís so robust, being made out of toughened plastic and an insulated steel body. It works so very well, whilst looking good. A classic case of perfect form and function, combined. I had the older version from circa 2007. It lasted well until I dropped it whilst drifting. This version has been tweaked ever so slightly as the design was clearly spot on. Itís even created mug envy in my village and at work! The drinking-lid is now Ďsectionalí and can be thoroughly cleaned with consummate ease. A great piece of outdoor kit. I absolutely love it!
