An easily disassembled insulated cup is always a plus. If it is easy to disassemble, washing it will be a breeze. We all want to make sure that the drinking vessel we are drinking from is 100% clean. The Contigo West Loop 470ml cup has only two parts, the body and the cap. Washing it is easy.

This one is elongated and will be comfortable to use with one hand.

When you have your hands full, you might drop your cup. If it develops a buckle, the thermal resistance may change.
