Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular Great for Hot and Cold Drinks
I purchased these Tumblers 2 months ago and have been using them daily since then. I originally bought these Tumblers because I was upset after reading about the 'Endocrine Disrupter' chemicals (like BPA) that are still in most plastic products, even those which are BPA-free! I had been using plastic cups for water or iced tea at home, work, and when out, but I just recycled them all when I bought these Tumblers. I will only use stainless steel or glass for drinking cups now. All beverages taste much better from either glass or stainless steel cups.
I purchased both the Silver and the Midnight Blue. I use the Blue at home for my cold filtered water that I keep with me all day, and use the Silver to take drinks with me in the car or traveling. I only hand wash it and the lettering on neither color is coming off. Maybe the paint is sensitive to some detergents, abrasive sponges or scratching while using. The cup does an excellent job keeping my drinks cold or hot as needed.
The silicone lid seals tightly and will not spill even if the Tumbler is knocked over. But beware, because silicone stretches greatly and does distort its shape if it is placed in very hot water. Do not wash the lid in extremely hot water!! If this does happen, the lid should return to its regular shape after soaking in cold water for a while (more than 15 or 20 minutes).
I highly recommend this Tumbler and enjoy its slim, convenient size and its ability to fit in almost every cup holder that I have come across.

Just what I wanted, 16 oz capacity with silicon lid and fits in car cup holder. Much better than killing trees and drinking the plastic coating in disposable cups.

I don't recommend purchasing this tumbler. As other reviewers noted, the lettering started to rub off onto my hands after only a few uses. I never even put the tumbler in the dishwasher and washed it by hand. The other major issue was the drinking spout became warped and coffee was coming out by droplets. If it was just the lettering rubbing off, I could certainly deal with it. But the functionality issue became too much. I purchased a Starbucks stainless tumbler instead and have been thrilled. You can't even compare the quality. Luckily, LLBean stands behind the product and I am returning this piece of junk.

Awesome cup with adequate capacity. Seems to keep coffee warm for long time and nice to know that LLBean will stand behind their product. Only concern is top is made of silicone - may absorb some outside smell/flavor if washed with other things.

I love this tumbler but today I notice the LL Bean label is rubbing off on my hand. I only use the top dishwasher shelf to wash as instructed.
Keeps my coffee hot. Anyone know why the label is rubbing off?

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaineCoastr Best Coffee Cup EVER!
Love this cup! It's so good to drink from that I use it at home without the lid. Coffee/tea always hot, and the cup isn't one of those plastic or bulky models. Perfect for travel too! THE BEST. (No, I am not related to anyone who manufactures or sells this cup!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Becca0727 Good Size
I love the size of the cup. The lid works well also, I've knocked the cup over several times and it has not spilled. Really, the only downside is that I've only had the cup about 10 days and about a third of the L.L. Bean logo has rubbed off and looks bad.
