Take one of these rugged tumblers on your next adventure to help you quench your thirst in the outdoors

“Lukewarm coffee in the deer stand at 5 am is the best!” Said no one ever.


Let’s face it, not just any cup will do in the outdoors. Traditional coffee mugs and disposable plastic cups don’t cut it in the whitetail woods or on the lake. They break easily, are more likely to spill, and don’t retain your drink’s ideal temperature.

What’s the best drink vessel for hunters and anglers? One that is portable, will perform, and is built tough enough for the outdoors.

We tested several travel mugs and put a whole list of ‘em together that fit the bill. Why? Because no matter where your outdoor adventure takes you, you deserve to enjoy your favorite beverage, exactly how you like it. Whatever your cup of tea, we’re confident one of these tumblers will work wonderfully for you in the outdoors.

From rugged phone cases to high-performance coolers, OtterBox continuously offers quality outdoor gear. It’s no wonder the Elevation collection from OtterBox made our list of favorite tumblers.


Available in three sizes (10, 20 and 64 ounces) and nine vibrant colors, the Elevation tumbler is a versatile mug ready for adventure. It’s stainless steel – so it’s strong – and features an internal copper lining to retain temperature.

If you get the Elevation 20, be sure to check out the available accessories for it. There is a Thermos Lid (perfect for soup!), a French Press Lid (so you can brew right in the cup), a Hydration Lid, and more.

Obviously, this wouldn’t be a “best tumblers for the outdoors” list without the Rambler collection from YETI. Like the brand’s coolers, these tumblers are made to perform and adventure-ready. From Mugs to Lowballs to colors like the new Camo pattern, you’re bound to find your perfect everyday cup within the Rambler family.

Each Rambler is stainless steel and insulated, so they are tough and work great for both hot or cold drinks. When you take a Rambler full of cold brew off the beaten path, you can rest assured it will be ice cold every step of the way.

We love how simple it is to clean these tumblers too. Both the cup and lid are dishwasher safe. The magnetic slider on the lid can be easily removed for a thorough cleaning – which isn’t the case with most tumblers (you know how that gunk can build up under there … gross!).

Specs/Features:

  • Stainless steel
  • Double-wall vacuum insulation
  • No sweat design
  • Dishwasher safe
  • MSRP: $24.99-39.99

The Tumbler 20 and V10 from Mizu are quite the pair and fantastic receptacles for hot or cold drinks.

If you want a go-to cup for daily use, choose the Tumbler 20. It fits in any standard cup holder and is perfect for your morning tea or that celebratory cocktail at the end of the day.

In the last couple years, the Hydro Flask brand has quickly become one of the hottest trends in the tumbler world. Outdoor enthusiasts of all ages are ditching those free water bottles they picked up at a tradeshow for these well-insulated, stainless steel containers.

One noteworthy Hydro Flask product is their 10-ounce Rocks. This vessel incorporates their TempShield double-wall vacuum technology, allowing you to enjoy a well-deserved spirit on the rocks without worrying about your ice melting.

Regardless of what you use it for – home brewed beer or a giant jug of iced tea – the 64-ounce Stack Growler from Manna will bring people together. It’s big enough to hold half a gallon of your finest brew and friends like it when you share.

This amazing growler is lightweight when empty and will keep liquids cold for 24 hours or hot up to 12. We recommend filling it up with rich hot cocoa and then divvying it up around a campfire (because sharing is caring). No need to pack cups when you take the growler along either. Four stainless-steel cups are included and conveniently stack atop one another on the lid.

When someone boards the boat with one of Manna’s growlers, you know you’re in for a good time.

  • Double-wall vacuum insulated

Don’t let the Walnut Wood tumbler’s good looks fool you though, it’s a tough cup with amazing temperature control. Its triple insulation will keep your drink cold for more than 9 hours and hot for 3. We left ours on the shore in the sun for 5+ hours, and it still had ice!

EcoVessel began nearly a decade ago when its founder Jon Fox struggled to find a safe and environmentally-friendly alternative to chemical-ridden, plastic water bottles. Motivated as ever, he created EcoVessel and boy, are we happy he did!

We filled their 16-oz triple-insulated tumblers with piping hot coffee and took them on a long Colorado hike in 25-degree weather. To put EcoVessel’s “8 hours hot” claim to the test, we purposely left the mugs half full and didn’t check them until the end of the excursion. We can tell you firsthand that eight hours later, the coffee remained hot, warming us from the inside after a chilly day.

The 16-ounce tumbler also features a push button lid for one-handed operation and a removable tea/fruit strainer for a truly versatile and functional product.

Specs/Features:

  • Premium 18/8 stainless steel
  • BPA free
  • 100-year warranty
  • MSRP: $19.95-$24.95

Initially, we were drawn to the FIFTY/FIFTY collection because of their perfect cool mint colored tumbler, but this brand made our top picks because of its insulation and flip cap. The café flip cap snaps to prevent spillage when closed, and also snaps into the back when open so you can sip comfortably without any upper-lip lid interference.

In addition, FIFTY/FIFTY offers a product discount for all military and first responder personnel, so if this means you, we encourage you to take advantage of this deal and thank you for your service!

Specs/Features:

  • Customizable
  • Fits in a standard cupholder
  • Limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects
  • MSRP: $16.95-24.95
