Got this mug as a birthday gift in September and loved it. Unfortunately, lost the lid and very disappointed to find out that I cannot get a replacement lid! Hard to use in car without lid! This needs to be addressed!

My friend got me this mug for my birthday and a couple days later it fell and the rim on the cap broke. I exchanged it for another one and the next day I took it to school. It started to fall out of my locker but I caught it. Even with that small gesture the middle part fell out of the clear cup because the cap was cracked! Very poor cup. DO NOT BUY!

I have had a terrible experience with this mug. It leaks almost every time I try to put the cap on and it spills hot tea on my hands. I've tried everything, not screwing the cap on too tight, screwing it on tighter, and making sure it was on correctly. Nothing has prevented it from leaking.
Keep in mind I have always washed it by hand and have treated the mug with care. Needless to say, I will no longer be using this mug.
That being said, I love all of the other Vera Bradley products I own.

Great coffee mug
I use this mug every day for my morning coffee and I have never had a problem with it. It keeps the coffee very hot and is easy to clean. A few people are complaining that it is cheap because it breaks when you drop it. I'm pretty sure if you drop anything on a hard kitchen floor it will break. Having said this, I have dropped mine a few times and it has not broken. I got mine in Plum Crazy and am buying one in Ribbons for my friend's birthday. I absolutely love it.

Love it...but it cracked as well
Purchased this about 3 weeks ago after seeing it in the store the day before. I noticed a week and a half ago that the Heather paper pattern inside had lifted a little, but thought nothing about it till today when I noticed that the top black ring on the mug (not lid) is cracked in two places. My did not fall at all either so the only thing I can think of is that it cracked when screwing on the lid. So I know that washing it now, water will get inside and ruin it :-(

Pretty but cheap
I bought this cup in heather about two weeks ago. lastnight while I was doing dishes it got knocked over on its side and the rim of the cup broke off into the lid! The cup feels cheap, not worth the price.

Perfect for hot and cold drinks!
I recently purchased the travel mug and I love it! I have tested it to see if it leaks by holding it upside down with a drink in it and it doesn't spill. Every once in a while a drop will escape but not too much that it causes a problem. I also love that it can keep hot drinks, such as coffee and hot chocolate, warm for a long period of time, and it keeps cold drinks, such as lemonade, cold for a long time. I would definitely recommend this to everyone!

Low quality mug!
Received as a gift used just 3 times each time was hand washed but my child knocked it over and the plastic cracked that easily. Very disappointed!!

No leaks here
I've had this travel mug for a couple of weeks now, used and washed it several times, and there hasn't been a single leak, crack, or any other issue. I heard there were a lot of quality issues with the first-release Tumblers (i.e. leaking, cracking, broken straws), so I was skeptical of the travel mug. I'm so glad I took the chance and just bought it. Not only does it look beautiful, it holds a decent amount of coffee, keeps it warm for a good while, and has a flip-top, which is much easier to hand wash than slide-top mechanisms. I've also not had issues with coffee popping out of the drinking hole onto my face or shirt towards the end of my drink. That has been a problem for me in the past with some brands of disposable coffee cups, but not with this travel mug! And so far, it doesn't hold onto smells from my many Coffeemate flavors, which is another issue I've had with other travel mugs.
The only thing that could possibly make this mug better would be if it were metal on the inside instead of plastic. I think maybe Vera got it backwards with this and the new water bottle. But it's still a great travel mug, probably the best I own, other than the metal-lined one that my husband "re-claimed" long ago. At least I know he won't steal my girly Vera one! :-)

Leaks... inside! :(
I just got this tumbler and have used it twice. I washed it by hand before using, and everything seemed OK after yesterday's cup of joe ... until today, after my morning fill-up, when I noticed that the paper beneath the clear plastic outer layer is wrinkly and stained with coffee! There is also condensation forming between the layers. It looks quite shabby already, and unfortunately will have to return it to the store this weekend.
Such a Bummer!!
