Today in Gear: Stanley’s Best Travel Mug Yet, a Rotary Powered Mazda & More


November 25, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


Stanley surely needs no introduction. The brand literally invented vacuum bottles in 1913. But Stanley hasn’t rested on its laurels — it’s continued to innovate and create compelling products that have changed the way we consume our piping hot or ice-cold liquids on the run. The Classic Trigger-Action Travel Mug is part of that tradition, and it’s ideal for the holiday season. For either a stocking stuffer or for your own use as you get ready for those hectic holiday travel days, the 16 oz. Trigger-Action Travel Mug is a welcome addition. Capable of keeping your coffee hot for that seven-hour road trip or your cocktail frosty for a 10-hour train journey, this travel mug will keep you hydrated and won’t spill with its trigger-action, push-button lid for one-hand drinking. And with a lifetime warranty and unbreakable construction, you can get used to having it by your side.
