The words “everyday carry” conjure up visions of custodian-grade keychains and Frankensteinian multitools.

But when you’re leaving for the day, or a day trip, what do you grab before your bottle-opener-firestarter-knife? Keys, phone, wallet … and travel mug.

Below, you’ll find some of our favorite travel cups and flasks, sorted by the situation that each best accommodates, from campsites to hotel suites. A couple criteria: no plastic (because no one wants polyethylene-tinged whiskey) and nothing over $200 (because you should be able to drop these without having a heart attack).
