About this project
As featured on:
The first on-the-go insulated mug with an authentic, cup-like sipping experience that's truly easy to clean.
Instead of a lid that goes on top, the lttl tumbler's stopper fits down inside so you can drink directly from the edge of the vessel - just like a normal cup. Sip naturally from any side, 360˚ around. The patent-pending stopper regulates flow for the perfect sip without splashes or overflow. All-around aroma venting allows full-sensory enjoyment of your favorite brew.
The lttl tumbler has been designed from the ground up for super easy cleaning. The lttl tumbler’s stopper is a single seamless part - there's no hidden crevices, no disassembly required, nowhere for gunk to hide! Down below, the vessel has a wide opening to easily fit a sponge or brush. The vessel's microscopically-slick electropolished interior resists stains and odors. When it's this easy to keep clean, your drink will always taste the way it should.
With a twist of your fingers the stopper seals tight, securely recessed inside the vessel. The single silicone gasket creates a reliable leakproof seal so you can conveniently carry the lttl tumbler in a bag or purse without worrying about messy spills and stains.
The vacuum insulated double-wall construction keeps hot beverages toasty for over 4 hours, staying cool and comfortable to the touch. Iced drinks stay cold all day with no messy condensation on the outside. The lttl tumbler will keep any beverage hot or cold for hours, so you can fill it with 16 ounces of any beverage you like: coffee, tea, iced and carbonated drinks, or a lttl beer or wine.
The lttl tumbler has durable components and finishes so it can go on the top rack of your dishwasher. It's entirely BPA and BPS free, and there are absolutely no coatings, paint, or lining inside the vessel.
The lttl tumbler is launching in four colors: brushed stainless, matte black, soft lavender, and pale rose gold. Brushed stainless and matte black tumblers come with a black stopper, while soft lavender and pale rose gold tumblers come with a white stopper.
*At 50K we will unlock our stretch goal color: malachite!

We've spent the past year sweating every little detail to create what we think may be the best insulated travel mug ever devised. We've poured our energy into developing the design and functional details through a series of working prototypes. All that's left is to garner the support of the Kickstarter community so we can pay for the tools and molds necessary for mass production.
We hope the lttl tumbler will serve you faithfully every day, for years to come. So please click that green button up top, select your reward, and back our project to get a tumbler that loves coffee as much as you do!
Risks and challenges
In the past 15 years, Matt and Gaz have helped dozens of clients bring hundreds of products to market. We've been down a similar road before, and we're well prepared to do it on our own this time.
The risks and potential challenges to this project have been minimized as much as possible in advance. We've been working with our factory's engineers to productionize the design. The overseas manufacturing partner we've engaged for this project is a trusted colleague that we've worked with for over a decade. The engineering, manufacturing, quality control and distribution plans are already in place.
To help us get across the finish line, we're employing BackerKit and Whiplash to collect your order info and ship product to you as efficiently as possible.
In the world of globalized manufacturing, unforeseen issues can arise that impact the production and delivery schedule - anything from minor production tweaks to super-typhoons and shipping lines going bankrupt while at sea. We pledge to actively deal with any challenges in a timely and professionally manner, and to be transparent and accurate as we keep you informed. We're excited to update our backer community regularly as we reach our production milestones.
Thanks in advance for your generous support. Every lttl bit helps!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
For our first campaign, all tumblers will be 16 oz / 475 ml. We will definitely consider making larger (and lttler) sizes in the near future.
Soon after the campaign ends on November 28th, we will send a backer survey via an email from Backerkit. In the survey form, you will be able to choose the color(s) of your tumbler(s), select additional rewards, and enter your shipping information for delivery.
The lttl tumbler is one of the slimmest 16 oz travel mugs available with a base diameter of 2.7". It will fit in every cupholder we've seen with one exception: the Mini Cooper has some very tiny cupholders in the center console that will not accept our lttl tumbler.
There are 360˚ sippy cups for kids available that seal automatically. But you need to suck on the top edge to get liquid to come out those kid's cups. The lttl tumbler works very differently - just tip it over and sip as you would from a normal cup. The stopper protects from overflow and accidental splashes but lets you drink like a grownup.
