Today, not only are those two pretty much a necessity, but a phone is a clear must-have and a travel mug is close behind. Whether that mug is filled with ice cold water (are you drinking the recommended number of glasses each day?) or your favorite coffee or tea, staying hydrated and energized throughout the day is a priority for all ages.
Fortunately, no matter if you're reaching for your cup during your commute, while on a walk, as you're sitting in a lawn chair or more, America's number one selling line of travel mugs has gotten a major upgrade thanks to the introduction of the Contigo AUTOSEAL West Loop with Easy Clean Lid.
Knowing that on-the-go beverage cups can be messy and complicated to use, Contigo has developed a line of simple, yet functionally innovative, environmentally friendly travel mugs, water bottles, and kids cups to help everyone face life's daily challenges. Each and every one of their products are known for being stylish, yet resilient and sleek yet strong while featuring revolutionary patented AUTOSEAL technology that automatically seals between sips.
Why not opt for products that are leak-proof and spill-proof with superior insulation properties that keep beverages hot or cold longer and, in essence, give consumers the confidence they need to face the day and pride in knowing that they bought the best of the best?
While we have long been big fans of Contigo and the way that their products are made with FDA approved materials and are perfect for being on-the-go, we couldn't wait to try out the new West Loop with Easy Clean Lid to see what updates Contigo had included.
Available in a variety of stylish colors, it only took removing these travel tumblers from the box for my entire family to be impressed with the design. Let's face it, along with the practical qualities, we all want to carry around something that looks good and these are purrrrrrrty!
However, when it came to checking out the West Loop, I loved what I discovered inside as well.
Although other brands may include "spill-proof" in their product descriptions, Contigo's AUTOSEAL technology truly renders it leak-proof no matter what angle it is held. Simply press to open and release to seal. No effort, no work, no hassle, no spills!
At the same time, I adore that Contigo included a quick and easy lid-lock feature for times that you want to be able to toss your mug into your purse or workout bag and not worry that the AUTOSEAL button will accidentally be pressed.
Just lock (an audible click clearly lets you know that you have the lid fully locked) and the West Loop does the rest in preventing a single drip from getting out!
Along with the importance of leak-proof technology and being able to quickly and easily take a sip from your mug whenever and wherever you are, Contigo took the West Loop a step further with its new Easy Clean Lid... which is completely and utterly genius!
This newly-designed lid screws off easily and includes no loose parts, so there is no worry about detaching and reattaching (and losing) any pieces. Just press right on the "push to clean" tab and the inner workings pop right up for full access!
Voilà! This amazing lid can then be thoroughly washed by hand or, due to it being top rack dishwasher-safe (the body of the mug is hand-wash only), placed right in the dishwasher for even easier cleaning. It really is just that simple!
We couldn't be much happier with our Contigo travel mugs and I have yet to find an aspect that hasn't worked for every member of our family, whether during daily use or for a specific occasion.
The ergonomic grip makes these comfortable to hold; the single-serve brewer and cup holder-friendly size make them extremely convenient; the double-wall vacuum-insulated body keeps drinks hot for up to five hours or cold for up to 12 hours; the spill-proof guarantee allows these to go right into backpacks or bags; the Easy Clean Lid eases any worry of hidden dirt or germs; and the overall appeal, design and ease of use is fantastic!
Considering that there is a fashionable color of West Loop to fit every personality, a Contigo AUTOSEAL travel mug would be a universally-loved gift for family, friends, babysitters, teachers and more. These amazing mugs retail for $20.99 and are available now in stores, on Amazon and directly from Contigo... where the coupon code WESTLOOP20 will provide a 20% discount until October 31, 2014!
