coffee anyone?

I had a birthday a few days ago and my girlfriend gave me one of the best presents. She did some Internet research and found a thermos and water bottle cage that work together. You just push a button on the thermos- it flips open and you drink out of it like a cup. So now I can have hot chocolate when im freezing on my pedi-cab, or warm tea when I'm freezing from touring in the rain all day. And for all you coffee drinking commuters out there, its perfect!

Who makes it? I was going to get a cup holder for my bars for my thermos, but I like the idea of being able to stow it better.

Here are some ideas.

I know there's more, I just can't locate them in my favorites.

fwiw a king stainless cage can be bent in or stretched out the last few mm to clamp down on most any insulated coffee cup.

Is the thermos very heavy? Because it is a thermos, does it compromise the amount of liquid you can actually hold. I've thought of getting one before, but didn't because the amount of liquid inside was so small.

the thermos is not bad at all,its pretty light its not like an old school thermos. the water bottle cage is adjustable so i can still carry a regular water bottle and just throw the thermos in my pannier if im not using it.

I picked up a regular 16 oz. Thermos at Shopko that just fits a bottle cage. I like my hot chocolate on a cold day!
