Stands up to the competition. – Buy Chiefs’ 20oz Stainless Steel Tumbler with 4 Straws Bundle.


My family and I all use these new double walled stainless steel cups. I would feel bad about not using my Tervis cups, but these cups really help keep my cold drinks cold, longer, and our hot coffee drinks, hotter, longer. You really can’t lose with these. This is another brand (Chief) that has entered the competition among the stainless cup industry, lol. It is a 20oz stainless steel insulated cup, with a lid. The lid is just like the lid on our 20oz Yeti that we have. The seal is nice and tight, and holds very well. There is that usual small opening to drink out of. I like that they included the stainless steel straw that will fit into this cup. They actually include a set of 4 stainless steel straws, and 1 straw cleaning brush. This is definitely the eco-friendlier way to go over disposable straws. I have been using a stainless steel straw and cup for a very long time now, and I do not ever taste a flavor difference with the metal. This tumbler has been able to hold its’ own amongst its competitors that we own. I always have an ice cold drink with me, even bedside, so it’s important that my ice last as long as it can. If you just place ice in here, you will have some ice left in it the next day. My throat is always swollen due to frequent anaphylactic reactions, so this is a must have feature for me. I think that’s pretty wild that ice will last so long in this cup; I love that. This cup will not leach chemicals into your drink either. It is obviously BPA free. It will not shatter or crack on you, if you drop it. Your hands will not get cold or hot when holding this either, due to its’ great insulation. Since stainless steel doesn’t rust, you will not have to worry about your cup not lasting for you. We use a Keurig to make our coffee. This will not fit, but if you brew a large cup of coffee, that will fit in here perfectly, and allow enough room for milk. So, the large cup setting is a perfect match for this cup, if you add milk to your coffee. If you drink it black, it still fits, and there will be some room left over in it. Another great to go benefit, is that it will fit into your car cup holders well. It fits into all of my cup holders. This is another must have feature for us as well. This has held up to our testing, and our must haves. They even have it available in the 30oz size as well. It’s a welcomed addition to the stainless tumbler market.

Fits the Yeti! – Neat Lids’ 30 oz. Tumbler Lid.


I have a 30oz Yeti cup, and one of their competitors’ 30oz Stainless Steel tumblers too. I drink out of my Yeti 30oz all the time, and I do use a straw. It’s hard to find straws that will fit into these cups. The tops that come with them have a very small drink opening on them. I have been seeing these new tops advertised all over Facebook. So, I have been very intrigued by them. In other words, I was so thrilled to be given the chance to review one. It arrives in simple, mail order packaging, and in perfect condition. It fit both my Yeti tumbler and my copycat tumbler, perfectly. It is made out of BPA free, top quality, food grade plastic. The seal on the outer ring is great, and really keeps your lid in place. There is a top sliding “door” per say, on the top of the cup. It slides over, and cover up the hole perfectly. Your drink will still trickle out if tipped, but a splash from walking won’t make it out. That is a great perk if you take your morning drink with you, on your way to work. The O Ring Seal makes the vacuum seal well. Without this seal, your cup wouldn’t be able to keep your cold liquids cold, and your hot liquids stay hot, for as long as it does. I noticed no difference with this lid compared to the lid that comes with the cups. I like the drinking opening a lot, on this lid. When slid open, the drink opening, was made a little bit larger, to accommodate straws. It is hard to find a tall thin straw, so this lid makes it doable. I am loving this feature. If not using a straw, the sliding lid feature is very beneficial as well. Especially if you are hanging outside. You don’t have to worry about any bugs making your way into your drink, eeewwwww. It’s also really nice knowing your hot coffee won’t splash onto you while heading out the door. Overall, I really like this lid. I just wish that when the lid was skid shut, that no liquid would drip out if slightly tipped. I wouldn’t definitely still but this lid, for the straw feature alone.

Veteran Owned and Operated. – American Brass’ 7.62 and .50 Caliber Bullet Bottle Opener Combo Pack.


I actually already own both the bottle opener and keychain from American Brass. I love them, and use them all of the time. My older son actually confiscated and has kept the bottle opener. The thing is made unbelievably well, and is so durable. It works perfectly, and has a very high cool factor to it as well. The same goes for the keychain. I kept that one though, and never let him touch it, lol. I was thrilled to see them available as a set, and even more thrilled to be able to review the set. This company uses only pre-fired demilitarized, bullet casings, from our US Military. How fantastic is that. I love that! What a story that makes when you present this as a gift. It’s nicely packaged, and ready to go out of the box. The keychain is made out of the 7.62 casing, and the bottle opener is made out of the .50Cal casing. These are brass, thick, and solid. They are not bendy in the least. They are not dirty, or rough to hold. They have a great patina to them as well. The keyring that comes with the 7.62 bottle opener, is a tight and solid key ring. This company is even a “Veteran Owned and Operated company.” It doesn’t get better than that. The surface is smooth. You could have the larger bottle opener engraved on your own as well. Or, you can do it yourself if you are handy. There are no negatives with this set. It’s completely a win, win situation here. You get to open your bottle like a boss, hands down. You’ll even get to carry your keys, like a boss! I most definitely recommend this set.

Another great tumbler. – Simple Modern Vacuum Insulated 30oz Stainless Steel Tumbler.



Let me tell you, we had been converted Tervis people. Then, my son moved us over to the Yeti stainless cups. We have officially been converted over to the Yeti side, lol. I have tried other competitor brands, but this is my first 30oz competitor cup. I use my 30oz Yeti every day! I just love it. So, I was very, very curious and excited about testing out this competitor. I love the challenge. This mug looks just like my Yeti. It has a smaller bottom area, so it can fit in my car cup holder. I will not use a cup, if it doesn’t fit in my car. My throat swells shut all of the time due to numerous life threatening allergies. My throat is always swollen and sore. I always have a cup fully of an icy drink to sip on, 24/7. My throat wakes me up during the night, and I sip on the icy drink. It really helps. So, it is very important to me that my cup can keep my drink cold for an extended period of time. I did an ice test on this cup first thing. I filled it to the top with ice, and then placed the top on. The top has silicone rings around it, and it creates a great seal. Mind you, there is a drinking hole in the lid. You can fit a narrow straw through this. I have thin stainless steel straws that we use with these cups. After 25 hours, there was actually still some ice left in the cup. It performs as well as my Yeti, which makes me very happy!!!! It even comes in 8 different color choices, for no additional cost. It is made out of 18/8 stainless steel, and has the double wall construction. It is toxin free, chemical free, and safe to drink both hot and cold liquids out of it. My husband took his coffee to work with him. He had a 3 hour drive to the office, too. He is very happy with how this cup is performing with hot liquids. The double wall construction is great. I wouldn’t have it any other way. The cup never sweats. It is comfortable to both hold and drink out of this cup. You can put steamy hot coffee right from the Kuerig in here, and not feel the heat through the cup. We haven’t been able to find any negatives with this cup. It has held its own against our Yeti. Enjoy.

Performs like my Yeti! – Kryogear’s KRYO KUP – 20oz Tumbler Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug.


I am a big fan of these new double walled stainless steel cups. We have the name brand one, Yeti, already. I was excited to compare the two. I like a challenge. This particular cup is by Kryogear on Amazon, and it is the 20oz version. They have the name Kryo nicely etched on the side of the cup. That is literally the only difference between the Kryo cup and the Yeti cup. My cup came with 1 lid and 1 stainless steel straw. It is supposed to come with two lids, but that was of no concern to me, so I never said anything. If that happens to you, you can request the 2nd lid. This cup is made out of 18/8 stainless steel. It is thick and durable. I love stainless. It doesn’t naturally harbor fungus, bacteria, or mold. The lid has a great seal on it and works perfectly. I placed ice in the cup, and after 12 hours of sitting in my living room/kitchen combo space, it had melted approx.. only a 1/6th of the way. I was very impressed indeed. It matches up to the Yeti perfectly. This cup is comfortable to hold when it’s full of ice. Since it is made with a double wall of stainless, hot drinks stay hot longer as well, and is just as comfortable to hold. We love using our cups like this one. I always keep a drink on hand with a ton of ice, even when I go out. I suffer from frequent anaphylactic reactions, and my throat is always sore and swollen. I have to have an icy drink with me. I can rely on this cup to even stay icy throughout the night! I can’t express how important this is to me. I love how they include the straw with the cup. It’s great for those who don’t have a supply on hand already. I love using our stainless straws. Yet again, no chemical worries. With this set up there will be no chemicals leaching into your drinks. This company even offers a lifetime guarantee! I am very comfortable recommending this product. It’s pretty top notch!
