8 Best Tumblers for Hot & Cold Drinks On-the-Go | BrüMate

Heading into the office? Spending the day outdoors with your best buds? No matter where the day takes you, your beverage tumbler should follow.

But not all tumblers are created equal. You need a to-go tumbler that’s durable, leakproof and perfect for both warm coffee and ice-cold water (or your drink of choice). Luckily, we’ve got you covered with this list of the best tumblers for hot drinks and cold drinks.

What Makes a Great To-Go Tumbler?

There are so many different tumblers out there that come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. How do you choose the right one for you? Let’s dive into some of the characteristics a great to-go tumbler should have.


There’s nothing more annoying than tumbler condensation leaking into your car’s cupholders or down your shirt. Well, except for taking a surprising sip of now-cold coffee that started off as hot when you poured it.

You can avoid these situations by selecting an insulated tumbler. Insulation prevents the transfer of heat, regulating the temperature of your drink. This keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. Plus, it prevents condensation on the outside of your tumbler.

BrüMate tumblers are triple insulated, keeping your cold drinks cold for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for up to six hours.

A Sip-Worthy Lid

Your to-go tumbler should have a lid that’s easy to sip from while still being leakproof. For the best results, the tumbler lid should feature a strong seal, and it should lock into place to prevent accidental drips. BrüMate tumblers feature our BevLock™ lid which is completely leakproof.

Cupholder-Friendly Size

Many tumblers, especially those larger in size, don’t fit in standard cupholders. So, you’re forced to hold your drink until you reach your destination or try to balance it in the seat next to you. Neither of these options is ideal.

The best to-go tumblers feature bottoms that are cupholder-friendly, no matter how many ounces they hold. BrüMate tumblers fit standard cupholders, even the Toddy XL, which holds up to 32 ounces.

Leakproof Design

If there’s one thing true about liquids, it’s this: they’re prone to spill. So, you’ll want to make sure the tumbler you choose features a leakproof design to prevent flooded keyboards and car seats.

A locking lid is an important part of a leakproof design. However, so is a non-slip base. Our tumblers feature a rubberized base that keeps drinks from sliding.

A Design That Fits Your Style

Whether you’re a minimalist or someone who enjoys a bold, unique print, your tumbler should be an extension of your style. There are so many colors and designs to choose from that you’re sure to find one that fits.

BrüMate tumblers were made for elevating your every day with both function and style. We offer a wide variety of colors and prints, from deep metallics to glitters that sparkle and everything in between.

4 Best On-the-Go Tumblers for Hot Drinks

There’s nothing quite like a steaming mug of hot coffee (or tea) in the morning. To keep your drink of choice warm on the go, you’ll need a fully insulated tumbler. Below you’ll find four of the best tumblers for hot drinks.

Toddy XL 32oz

Sometimes, a single cup of coffee just isn’t enough. On days when you need more fuel, the BrüMate Toddy XL 32oz is a perfect choice. While it holds up to 32 ounces, it still fits standard cupholders, making it a great travel companion.

Spilling 32 ounces of any beverage is a potential disaster. Luckily, just like all our other mugs and tumblers, the Toddy XL 32oz features a 100%  leakproof lid. Backed by patented BevLock™ technology, you can be clumsy with confidence, knowing you’ll never miss a drop.

Toddy 16oz

If you’re looking for a tumbler size reminiscent of your favorite mug, this is it. The Toddy 16oz is our innovative take on what a mug should be. It includes all the features of a mug, such as a sturdy handle and compact size.

The Toddy 16oz also features a leakproof design (shameless plug: it’s the world’s first 100% leakproof mug). Plus, it can be used left or right-handed. Our Toddy 16oz, 22oz, and 32oz options are always on our list of bestsellers, so you’re guaranteed to find a 5-star size and style you love.

Want a tumbler that’s larger than your standard mug but that still fits perfectly in your hand without a handle? The NAV 22oz might be just right for you. While it may look more like the tumbler you’re familiar with, it’s far from basic.

The NAV 22oz features a leakproof locking lid and triple insulation to keep in the heat. Plus, it’s completely cupholder friendly and available in 25+ unique prints and colors.

Imperial Pint

Sometimes, you need your tumbler to go from morning coffee to evening cocktails. And this is what the Imperial Pint does best.

While it’s triple insulated to protect hot drinks, it also functions as a cocktail glass or shaker (shaker lid separate) to keep all your cocktails cold while you play mixologist. It’s also leakproof and durable, making it the perfect all-around tumbler for wherever your day takes you.
