GSI Outdoors has a huge line of accessories for the backcountry cooker. Many of these products are light weight, and durable making them great for backpacking. A personal favorite of mine is the Infinity Backpacker Mug.
The Infinity Backpacker Mug comes complete with an insulated sleeve and sippy lid that bring a nice convenience to life on the go, and when you are trying to keep up with Steve on the trail that comes in pretty handy. The insulated sleeve has a durable webbing strip applied for a handle, that also doubles for a great way to fasten/clip the mug to backpacks and other items for carrying or storage. The sleeve is also easily removed allowing visibility of liquid. This mug is dishwasher and microwave friendly as well. The overall volume capacity is listed at 17 oz. but I wouldn't recommend going past 16 oz. leaving room for the depth of the lid. Between the different mugs and thermoses I've tested out, I'd say this one had the overall easiest to use lid. A lot of bottles and mugs over time seem to not seed as well when fastening the lids with a twist on approach. The GSI Infinity Backpacker Mug is an easy on, easy off press on style lid that stays secure. At first I was a little worried about this, but I've been using it almost daily for a couple months now and have yet to experience a problem.
The Backpacker Infinity Mug is an awesome outdoor camping mug, but it doubles great for every day use. If you know someone who is on the go a lot, or like a lot of people who fill a cup of coffee for the road in the morning, this mug would make a great inexpensive Christmas gift that will get a lot of use.
