Treeline Outdoors Enamel Mug

You may have seen our feature on Treeline Outdoors' roof top tent here. Upon further inspection these guys have other offerings on their site that are pretty sweet. "The River is Calling". One of the reasons our site doesn't get updated as often as it should....These enamel mugs are hand made by one of the few remaining enamel factories in Europe. They are baked 3 times at over 1500 degrees fahrenheit. What that means for us common folk....You can toss these things on a campfire or a camp stove and you won't regret it. There are two different styles of mugs to choose from: "The River is Calling" and "The Mountain is Calling". Pick yours up at the link below.
