Titanium's a good choice for a camping mug. You can use it to create a super-strong single-walled 600mL container that only weighs 90 grams. And you can stick it right over the fire to heat up some soup or coffee.
But this mug being single-walled, you can burn your lips right off of your face by sipping directly from it.
So the folks over at Snow Peak creating this amusing accessory for their titanium mugs: Hot Lips.
These simple silicone crescents slip right over the top, keeping your kisser cool while you sip your chowder.
And the product's apparently popular; they're currently sold out!

It's clever, but does anyone else think this is a patch for a larger design issue? That a single-wall camping mug is a poor design in the first place?
I would say from experience that a single waled mug is a good design from the point of view of it being super light so if doing super light weight travel for instance mountain marathon or multi day mountain biking it can be a good design. as with any specialist design where one aspect is favored it looses out on other aspects. you just have to wait for your beverage to cool to drinking temperature. this is an interesting little gizmo though.
I guess this would solve the problem, if the silicone doesn't conduct the heat
