Look, we’re not one to follow trends here—truth be told, we still drink our coffee from the M.A.S.K. Thermos we got in 2nd grade.

That said, the faint taste of Ecto Cooler in our brew had us looking for a new coffee cup recently, which led us to the lineup of Summit Racing 40 ounce travel mugs.

It’s no secret that these travel mugs have become what the youths call #instagood nowadays—but putting our own trendiness aside, they’re still great companions when working in the garage, or pounding the pavement at a car show or race track.

For starters, they’re super insulated and, according to the Summit Racing folks, these mugs will keep your drink warm (or cool) for hours—plenty of time to finish that early-morning oil change or afternoon lawn mow.

Secondly, these Summit Racing travel mugs are made from stainless steel, so they won’t shatter if you accidentally drop one on the tarmac while you’re unloading your race trailer.

Last but not least, the mug’s narrow base easily fits into most cupholders and, with a stout handle and leak-proof lid, it means we can sip our Americano without fear of caffeinating our car’s interior as we drive to work.

Right now, there are several different colors available, including trusty black and white options. But the Summit Racing gang also said that they plan limited releases of certain colors, with new shades being introduced regularly throughout the year—but when those special colors run out, they’ll be gone for good.

All told, while we’re sad to say goodbye to Matt Trakker and T-Bob, a Summit Racing 40 ounce travel tumbler is the next best way to enjoy your coffee. (Oh, and it makes great gift idea too.)
