I was gutted the week when I was unloading my brew making equipment to find that my favourite camping mug had shattered into a million pieces, it was a sad day, especially as I had no other mugs with me!
Serendipitously, a week later I came across Martin Baxendell at a gift fair and since then, his silicone Quench glasses have revolutionised my whole outdoor drinking experience.
Made from food grade silicone, the cups are virtually unbreakable and can be used for both hot and cold drinks ranging from -40˚C to 230˚C. They’re also dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe too.
Although they’re incredibly pliable they’re also sturdy, so you’re not spilling your favourite tipple when drinking. Not only are they great for clumsy and drunk adults, but they’re ideal for kids too.
These days I just throw them into the camping box, it doesn’t matter if they become squashed, they just pop back into shape.
