Fellow “Carter” Vacuum-Insulated Travel Mug
We’ve covered a number of vacuum-insulated travel mugs over the years, and each one is darn useful in its own way. However, we’ll be the first to admit that none of them quite capture the simple pleasure of drinking from your favorite mug at home. They’re focused more on heat retention than, say, pleasant hand-feel or coffee aromatics.
Fellow’s new “Carter” everywhere mug answers the question, “Why can’t I have it both ways?”
The Carter features a matte textured exterior that feels great in the hand, plus an aromatic wide mouth so drinking your coffee becomes the multi-sensory experience it was meant to be. But they didn’t stop there — it’s also coated with ceramic on the inside to make sure your coffee tastes as good on the road as it does at home.
Notice how that stainless steel lip poking out of the top there has a bit of a taper to it? It’s such a simple thing but makes all the difference in how comfortable the Carter is to drink out of, as opposed to a lot of travel mugs with their almost sharp sipping edges.
Not to mention, you won’t be surprise-tongue-burned by still-hot coffee coming out of a tiny drinking hole — it takes out all the guesswork.
The wide mouth isn’t just for aromatics either. At 69mm in diameter, it’s designed to fit the most popular manual brewing devices, like the AeroPress and Hario V60. You just brew and go, it’s that simple.
Even after focusing on all these other little features, they still made sure to include a double-walled vacuum seal that keeps drinks hot for 12 hours or cold for 24. And, the lid sports a leak-proof seal to ensure your day bag won’t get wet while you’re on the go.
The Carter comes in two sizes across three colors:
