Package deals aren’t always winners, but this one is. To
celebrate its 100th birthday, Stanley—celebrated manufacturer of insulated
mugs and bottles used around the world—is giving you a present. It’s a stainless steel, vacuum-insulated travel mug that slides inside a leak-proof, BPA-free water bottle, meaning that you get a
pair of drinking vessels for about the same price you’d typically pay for just the mug.

The double-wall mug nests inside the water bottle, saving space in your
pack and in your cabinet. Your bottle better be full when you’re hiking or you
may have other issues aside from space in your pack. But rest
assured—when you do get to camp, or even when you’re just commuting to work,
the mug will keep your drink hot for a solid three hours. The bottle isn't as burly as the mug, but it does the trick, and it's guaranteed not to leak. Both bottle
and mug come with a lifetime warranty. In 14- and 16-ounce sizes. Available spring 2013, $20 and $30;
