I'm known as Mr Frugal in these parts. So I set out to find a cheap and I think superior solution for when traveling on Bike, Car, Foot, Golf Cart, or Whatever - I did an urinalysis of this dilemma on 4/19/2008 - [moderator edit]
Still working for me...2 years already seems like yesterday and it'll be 9 years in a couple months since I retired. that's a lot of water down the drain.

I just bought a travel mug...

I bought a tuff mug a couple months ago: Zojirushi Tuff Mug in Stainless Steel: Home & Garden

I use it for cold and hot drinks. I had some iced tea in there the other day. I put the iced tea in at noon with two ice cubes. I forgot about it in my backpack and when I opened it up at 4pm the NEXT DAY, the ice cubes were still there, rather large. I throw it in my backpack with my books/laptop, it never leaks.

I went through several bottles before finding this one. It has to be imported from Japan so it will take a few days, but it's worth it. The other bottles with those complicated sipping tops are impossible to clean. After only a few weeks of use gunk starts to build up and you can't get it out. This things has a plain, wide screw-top so you can reach your whole hand in with a sponge to clean it out, and it's lined with glass so it imparts no flavors in your drink.

Can't say enough good things about it. Couldn't find anything like it in US stores. They're all either uninsulated, or have those fancy caps that you can't clean.

I just got his bottle for coffee and it rocks! Like the Zoji it keeps your drink piping hot for hours! I love it! The push-button open feature makes it easy (no opening and closing fuss) and it has a spring that keeps the lid open so it doesn't hit your face when you tip to drink - and it has a lock on it for travel. Thermos 16-Ounce Stainless Steel Backpack Bottle: Home & Garden

I notice they have a larger hydration bottle too...which I might decide I need... Thermos Nissan 18-Ounce Stainless-Steel Hydration Bottle: Home & Garden

If i think of something clever to say, i'll put it here...
