Takeaway: Drinks stay cold/hot and temps doesn't reach your hand, easy to clean, bamboo outside looks cool.

UPDATE: I did drop this mug once and the outer bamboo "casing" separated from the interior metal vacuum insulated part; however, the insulating properties were not damaged and I was able to put the sleeve back on with a big of hot glue and it seems to be holding up. I've had it over a year now. Still works/looks great.

The bamboo travel mug measures about 10” tall and has a 3” diameter. The exterior of the tumbler is encased in real bamboo with a laser engraved image of bamboo on the front. On the cap, the wood cover is engraved with the Pollux logo. The rest of the cap and interior of the tumbler are made from stainless steel. The leak-proof lid screws on the tumbler and inside is a stainless steel strainer basket with a fold-down pull handle.

The basket is ideal for loose leaf tea and other infusions like fruits and aromatics for flavored water. The mesh on the strainer is fine and allows water to pass through the top, sides, and bottom and is easy to clean. The top piece of the basket screws into the bottom to ensure its contents won’t spill into your drink. It pops securely into place at the top of the tumbler. You can pour water through to basket steep your tea or make flavored water. The tumbler has 16 oz capacity (2 cups) and is vacuum insulated, so it’ll hold the temperature fairly constant. When brewing hot tea with the cap on, I found that after an hour at room temperature, it lost less than 10° F starting from 153° F. Similarly, it takes a while for cold drinks to warm up in the tumbler. The outside of the mug does not change temperature much, although the metal part of the cap may feel a bit warmer or cooler depending on the temperature of your drink inside. Overall, this tumbler has great insulating capability and although it lacks a handle, the bamboo wood is easy to grip, stays a comfortable temperature, and looks pretty stylish.
