Bottom Line: Great product for the traveler or deployed
Positive Product Points

Great product for the traveler.  It is about 8 to 10 inches tall and fits in a cupholder because of it's slider body and small base.  The Bodum Travel Press is easy to carry and has rubber gip around the cup for easy holding.  I do not drink directly from the press, but tranfer to a coffee cup.  It is excellent if you use it in this fashion to mimimize the effect of over "steeping".  The lid screws on and has rubber gasket to prevent spillage and retain heat.

Negative Product Points

The lid is plastic, and the body metal.  The lid screws on.  Any time you have plastic that must be tighten'd onto a medal, there will be problems if you over tighten.  Over tighting will result in striping the lid threads.  The result will be possible spillage and loss of heat.  Although I haven't had this problem, I could see the potential for this hazard.

Detailed Commentary

I'm in the military and deployed to Iraq.  I could only carry so much equipment with me.  This travel press was a gift that was shipped to me.  I have the Bodum Tavel Press, hot plate, bottle water, and an unwanted, but functional blade grinder.  You don't worry about the details when you are deployed.  I get my whole beans through the mail from family members.  

Highly recommend this set up if deployed or traveling, but would never drink directly from the travel press unless it was an emergency.  Always transfer with a travel press if able to prevent over "steeping".  Also, get a burr grinder to make an even course grind.
