What do you use that works?

Could sombody recommend a thermo "Go" coffee cup that actually fits in to the cup holders of the X-Trail. I find most thermo cups are too big in diameter, or too tall that they actually interfere with the A pillar.

I have a nice collection of Starbucks Stainless Steel thermo Go Mugs, but none of them fit due to diameter or height.

Seems those cup holders were designed totally around those typical 500ml water bottles.

Thanks


PS:

This one definitely does not fit :rolleyes:

Here are some I have tried.



The 2 on the left fit well, however they are a bit smaller than I would like in capacity. They are 70mm (2.75") diameter at the lower bulge (insertion) point & 145mm (5.7") tall. They are from Starbucks.

The cup on the right is one of my favorite mugs and is the capacity I like, but it's a bit tight and a bit too tall. It is 78.5mm (3.01") in diameter at the lower bulge and 191mm (7.52") tall.

The Stainless one with the handle? Fuggettaboutit....


Fits, but is a bit small in capacity.


Snug fit, and too tall, must sit at an angle


I know this isn't really important stuff, but thought it would be fun to see what everyone uses. I know I will continue the quest for the perfect Stainless Steel Thermo mug :cool:

STX, I called my Nissan Dealer and the only travel mug they had lsited in the catalog was a Copper colored Nissan thermo mug... Can you believe that? The Parts guy and I both with in disbelief :rolleyes:

Avery, I went to Wally and Canuck tire today, however I did not see anything I really liked at either store. I must be a loser ;)

I did find the dimensions for the Nissan Thermo Bottle/Mug



It is 2.65" diam x ~7" tall. I think it will work well so I ordered one from MEC yo see how it works. I was going to get 2 however I do want to make sure we like them :thumbup:

That other Nissan Tumbler above also fits, its at the max for allowable height I think as it does come in contact with the A-Piller if not careful while putting it in, or while in place.

I'll take pictures once the Thermo Bottle is in.

Conclusion of the Travel Mug Analysis: ;)

The Nissan Thermos Bottle arrived today and I set to promplty test it out. It is of beautiful construction. It fit perfectly into the X-Trail's cup holder areas, both front and back holders. It states with the sipping lid in place it will keep the drink hot for 6 hours. I brewed a pot of coffee and after prewarming the mug filled it with Fresh Sumatra coffee, all the while sipping and taking pictures. It has been a good 1 & 1/2 hours since, and the coffee is still as hot as when I poured it in, (Very Hot).

The cap is threaded on and the whole assembly becomes a thermos bottle that is leak proof. It's actually pretty cool as you can sip some coffee, put the cap on, toss it in your pack upside down, pull it out much later for a quick sip. It feels perfect and luxurious in hand, and is the right volume for me. Drinking from it feels very comfortable, as it has a deep well that feels very secure, with out the fear of being splashed in the face with hot coffee. This is one of those "Highly Recommended", must have BingTech toys :)

I most definitely will be buying 2 more of these :)








I took this shot to show how it matches the decor :cool:

My Titanium Charge Leatherman arrived also, but the Stainless Steel Thermo Bottle/Mug is what has my attention for now :thumbup:

Here you go Viper, another happy customer of Thermos :)

I'll be dropping by for a cup of coffee sometime and we can sit in your exy and have a good chat:)
That would be cool, what a nice image you paint Jalal :thumbup: You're welcome anytime mate!

What would be even cooler is if I could visit Australia, we could have coffee in your X-Trail as you show me the great offroading sights... Yeah, yeah, that would work too :cool: :cool: :cool:

Cool, thanks for the review info :)

I bought that same bottle for my wife, and then I also bought the Stainless tumbler and a different style bottle with a flip top. What can I say, I'm a sucker for stuff like this, now I have 4 Nissan Stainless Steel Go mugs for all cup holders :loser:


Nissan Tumbler


This one may not fit, but it was so cool I had to have it, it can always go in theback seat cup holders :)
