Best travel coffee mug

I'm currently in the market for a travel coffee mug and am having trouble finding the "perfect" one. My requirements are:

1. Vacuum insulated, double walled. I would like to be able to keep my coffee hot for as long as possible.

2. Lid should be easy to clean and not have any crevices that are difficult to clean inside or can trap liquid which will mold.

3. Leakproof is nice but not essential. I don't plan on putting the cup inside a bag or anywhere where it won't be sitting upright.

I tried this Thermos mug out:

It meets almost all of my needs except the lid is very tedious to clean as you need to disassemble it into five different pieces each time you clean it in order for it to dry out all the way. Something like this but with a simpler lid would be perfect.

Unfortunately its hard to shop on Amazon for these cups as most of them don't show pictures of the underside of the lids.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great! Thanks.
