The Kupilka 21 has arrived…

The Kupilka 21 has arrived… The cup I have been wanting for the last few months is now finally in my hands! So, what do I have to say about it? Well, I am happy with it. It fits well in my hand. It is not too heavy. And, it has character, unlike my other hiking cups…

Update: In my video I mentioned that I mailed a personal check to Michael at Kupilka to pay for my Kupilka 21. The reason that I did this was because it would have cost me $20 to wire the money from my bank account to theirs. Michael got in touch with me via email the other day and informed me that it will cost him 25% of the total amount of the check in order to cash the check over there. The reason I am saying this is because if you are planning on purchasing one of these cups (maybe as a gift on this fine holiday season, huh?) you will need to make sure that you contact them through the email at the Kupilka site to make proper arrangements for payment. And also, rest assured they are looking into having these more readily available in the USA which will make the entire purchasing process somewhat easier. But don’t let it stop you at the moment. 🙂


About Stick

My blog is essentially a record of my hiking career. Through it, I, and others, can see how I have evolved from a heavy weight backpacker, to a smarter, more efficient, lightweight backpacker. Through the use of video, still photos, and of course writing, one can see my progression, as well as check out some of the places I hike, and not to mention some cool, lightweight gear options. For me, my blog is a journal, but for others, I hope that it is an interactive learning tool to aid them in their own progression towards lightweight backpacking.

  1. I forgot to mention that the smell goes away once you wash the cups. I would recommend to wash every new Kupilka before use anyway.

    Looking forward to more reviews such as this one.

    Great video! Thank you Chad!
