Uni-tasker vs Multi-tasker (mugs)

I purchased 2 mugs today.

The first could be a multi-tasker. Single wall means it can be used to heat water on a stove and/or be a vessel from which soup, tea or coffee can be consumed. It's the right size to contain a 4oz/110g iso-propane canister. It also happens to fit nicely into my Trek 900 pot. Weighs 3.2oz.

double-wall is nice, very nice, in fact, but in practice I'm a single-wall kind of camper.

It's funny how my brain notes those same things primarily on climbs. I wonder why that is? NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here
