Caffeine-savvy readers won't be strangers to our obsession with the perfect camp cup. They might also be familiar with the titanium smoking accessories made by Montana-based company Dangle Supply. Hell, a mutual appreciation for the great outdoors and good gear design even led us to team up with Dangle Supply to produce special orange blaze editions of the Ti Cobb Pipe and iconic DangleBong in the past. But now we're here to talk about camp mugs.
Kicking off the holiday season, Dangle is bringing a new paint job to its 420ml titanium camp mug (the most appropriate volume possible) inspired by the classic blue and white speckled camp cookware of yore, as in, your dad or grandad's old camping gear.
Veteran bike frame painter James Bellerue lent a hand in recreating the finish of the Speckley Ti Cup that closely resembles the dipped enamelware in your mess kits and cupboards. Though it's single-walled titanium makes up the mug and its handle—it's both lighter and stronger than the true old-school mugs it bears resemblance to—we don't recommend placing this one over a camp stove flame if you want that beautiful finish to last.
