A nice but a bit pricey, single walled no nonsense cup from MSR. After several uses the pros and cons become pretty evident. The handles could stand to be a bit larger and have some plastic coating to avoid singeing fingertips. The size is good and bad. It's small and light enough to stow away about anywhere but doesn't allow it to slip over a standard 32 oz. water bottle. Heat dispersion is normal for a Titanium single wall cup. All around good cup for summer but for the price a Snow Peak 450 double wall is not much more price wise, insulates much better and the capacity is larger. Of course everything has its uses. I have a bit of a leaning toward MSR because I've had such good luck with them so I purchased this cup with the notion from previous products that MSR equals quality. Keep all the above in mind when looking for a cup.
Bought the titan because of its versatile capacity. One thing that I love about it is that it houses my svea stove, except for about a half inch of the base of the stove which is very solid. It performs very well in the field as both a cup and small pot for softening and heating dehydrated foods, making tea, coffee or varieties of oatmeal or pasta. The holes in the lid don't strain coffee grounds well but they aren't meant to. I usually don't strain mine in the field anyway and most of them are at the bottom of the cup. The cup is very likely a classic and certainly replaces my sierra cup, which was great when water was still safe to drink on mountain treks about fifty years ago....However the sierra cup didn't cover as many functions.

Lightweight, strong, holds a drink very well. Got this for a trip where the water bladders were for the group. Put this under the spigot and had a nice cup of water for every meal.
Holds a warm cup of tea as well but a boiling hot cup is a little too far in my comfort range. I primarily bought this because I had money to spend and an itching for a titanium cup. While car camping I buy the large jugs of water with spigots on them. This cup is overkill for this job, but boy does it look cool(MSR logo etched on the bottom).
