Backpacking background I have been backpacking for 2 years now and before
that I car camped quite a bit. I consider myself somewhat new to backpacking
and am on my way towards becoming a lightweight packer. I hike in the
Alleghany National Forest and along many of the loops that can be found in
the State park. I prefer overnight trips to day trips because I love to camp
but I hate just finding one spot to camp and staying there with little to
do. I love to hike to a spot and park it for the evening, then get up and do
it all over again. I average around 8 miles/13 kilometers a day depending on
terrain. I'm never in a huge hurry to get where I'm going because usually I
don't know where that is. My favorite type of hiking trail is the loop
because then I can park my car and not worry about getting a ride back to it
Test Plan Basically, this cup will just go with me everywhere I hike. I
have trips planned for the Allegheny Mountains and the Alleghany National
Forest where there are plenty of hiking trails to explore. I will use this
cup in the place of my Lexan® cup that I currently use. I like the
insulated wrap that goes around the Cup 2 go. What I will look for is the
1-How easy is it to read the gradient marks in the cup when I am bleary-eyed
before my first cup of coffee?
2-If I use it for my freeze dried meals, how easy is it to clean? Do the
gradient marks in the cup catch food particles making it difficult to clean?
Do I need to carry a chipmunk with me so he can scurry around in the cup
cleaning it for me?
3-Does it trap odors of foods/drinks previously eaten/drunk from the cup?
4-How long does the insulating sleeve keep my food/drink hot/cold?
I will be taking overnight trips and 3 to 7 day trips all this summer. My
terrain will run the gamut from easy strolls to some hellacious climbs and
descents (hopefully fewer of those!!) I will be interested in seeing how
well it stands up to the normal abuse of backpacking, sort of comparing it
to my Lexan® but not exactly.
Thank you for considering me for this test.
