The Nordisk Aluminium Mug 400ml is a simple ultra light and ultra compact mug, perfect for camping, backpacking and expeditions.
The aluminium mug containing 400 ml is a versatile piece of gear with many applications no matter if you want to use it for drinking cold or hot liquids, eating soup or cereals – or simply to collect water from the lake or as a small container when camping. The choice of material even makes it possible to use it as a small pot on a grill grid, if you want to heat something up (but only for a short period of time). It has foldable handles taking up minimum space when packed – and if you have the smaller 200 ml mug as well, it fits nicely into the 400 ml when folded. The handles are also handy if you want to hang the mug somewhere.
The Nordisk 400ml Aluminium Mug is a simple but very effective aluminium mug. It is a decent size without adding too much weight. It's made of tough stuff! The appeal of the aluminium lies in its light weight and low cost, especially compared to titanium which might edge the low weight but will certainly dent your pocket for it. One of it's best features is that the handle can be folded in to conserve space in your pack.
The increase in size from the original 200ml version means that it is much more practical and still an ideal size for stuffing in your pack for trips when every gram counts.
