bubba 52 Ounce Mug
Skip this one!
This is a great looking travel mug. The huge flaw is the screw on lid. It does not screw on correctly and if it gets even the slightest bit off thread it is nearly impossible to unscrew. Forget about it if you have arthritic hands at all. There is really no place to grip the lid to twist it on. I returned it today in store and checked out the few they had in stock. One was left on the shelf without the lid screwed on and I couldn't get it screwed on either. They also look different than the photo. Stainless is just printed with the logo, and they have a bottle opener built onto the bottom of the handle. I hope Bass Pro ditches this one!

Almost got it right
This was my favorite cup while it lasted. It would keep ice for a long time, even in my jeep. My issue with the bubba keg is that the seal started to leak soon after I got it. I would go to drink and it would drip the contents onto my shirt. The only remedy was to really torque the lid on tight. well... after about 30 days of having to torque the lid on tight, the top of the keg began to spin independently from the bottom. The only think keeping the top of the keg from spinning freely was the handle, which gave out soon after. After my second handle ripped off, I was done with the bubba keg. aside from the seal issue, the cup was perfect. I hope they come out with a new seal design.

Although it does keep things cold as advertised, it also allows water to seep into the interior of the insulated area when being washed even when washed by hand as the instructions say.

I bought one of these mugs about 1 yr ago...put ice in it first thing in the morning and the next morning, I still have ice. I bought the second for my best friend who had cancer and was in bed quite a bit until her death about a month ago....we would fill it up with ice and some water every night before she went to bed and it would last her until the next day...that way she didn't have to get out of bed when she was alone because there was always something cold there on her nightstand.....she used it every day and if anyone every enjoyed something, she really enjoyed this...the product can't be beat...a God-send when we were able to get out in the flower garden and work and keep our liquids cold....thanks for such a product.
