Nifty travel coffee mug shaped like a goat horn. I don't know why I find this so neat.... but I do... and I want one.

    Backed at the 25 dollar one. Sick mug with straps to carry when in town now here is the question, White and tan or Black???

    I noticed that none of the promo photos on the kickstarter page show the mug in use in a car's cup holder.

    If you take the sleeve off and flip it It will fit in car holder then the sleeve holds the mug Cant wait till I get mine in April ( hopefully )

    What am I missing about this? How is this any more practical than a flat bottomed mug? More space and more easily usable for flat-bottomed. I get that it looks unique.

    You're not missing anything. It's a gimmick reliant upon a false nostalgia for days of horn flagons which never really existed. If it were more practical to drink from horn-shaped things, we would all be doing it already, especially since it's much easier to manufacture paper cups as cones than cylinders. If McDonald's thought we would prefer, or even tolerate, cone cups, they'd give them to us.

    tl;dr: This is a thing you get because it's neat (which it is) not because it's better (since it isn't).
