  1. The Keeper is the only cup I ever tried because there weren’t any others available at that time. Mine lasted exactly 10 years. The stem can be cut to size as stated in the instructions. Too bad you couldn’t try it out. I liked it a lot. It was quite comfortable. Towards the end of the 10 years it didn’t open up properly anymore and the material became porous. But other than that it held up properly. Never had any mishaps or leakage.
