What are some ideas for light/cheap coffee mugs? I am against using my cookpot, and that is the only cooking container i carry.

Look for a lexan measuring cup. Light, plastic, has handle, and won't melt.

Well, if you don't want to use your pot, how about just using a styrofoam cup? Can't get much lighter and you can usually steal them from work or a fast food place. Store them in your pot to prevent them from being crushed.

These little "Soup in Hand" containers make excellent coffe cups. Styrofoam insulation on the cup and a sipper lid. Very light. (Don't cook the soup in the container as instructed if you plan to use one, it will leave it's taste in the plastic) http://www.campbellsoup.com/microwavable.aspx

Try a folding mug or cup from Orikaso. You can get them at Campmor, the mug holds 12oz and only weighs 1.9oz. The cup holds 7.6oz and weighs 1.4oz. Both run at $5.00. I have one and it works great, packs anywere when unfolded. I put measurements on the side with a sharpee. I would get the mug, more room for stirring.

At 6.6 oz its too hvy for me to justify carrying. Besides, do I really need 32 oz of coffee/tea/HC at one time?:-?

I picked up a couple of aluminum coffee cups several years ago at Eastern Mountain Sports. They weigh just 1.5 ozs. each and will hold 11 ozs of liquid. They didn't have any other markings on their outsides, so I used an engraver to mark lines for 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 ozs. on them for measuring water. It fits neatly into my cookpot and makes an excellent divider there to store smaller items. I can also keep my MSR fuel pump, matches, pot handle, stove windscreen, candle-lantern collar and collapsible chop sticks next to it in the open space of the cookpot, and the frying pan/serving dish covers it all nicely. I leave the frying pot at home if I plan my menu carefully, so that I can lighten the weight a bit.

My coffee mug (http://www.whiteblaze.net/forum/vbg/showimage.php?i=17966&catid=newimages&cutoffdate=1). Got it at Wallyworld a couple years ago and it quickly became a pack essential. Microwaveable, it sees some use at home and work, too. Snap- on lid keeps it clean, holds in heat and steam, keeps bugs and debris out, and makes it handy to pack loose items. It is light (2.7 oz) and holds in heat pretty well; the wide, rounded interior is easy to clean. 2- cup capacity is ample for food- bowl or drink- cup and a handle makes the mug convenient to eat from in camp situations. Useful for re- hydrating dry- mixes (read FBC cozy).
