YETI Rambler 64oz Stainless Steel Bottle

[QUOTE=first2summit, post:11, topic:749757]
No, Ozark is the Walmart brand and largely knock offs of other brands. They and others copied the entire line from the small bottles to the large coolers. And to that point, if you’re OK with supporting knock-offs and those who’ve stolen other’s IP and designs…principles are expensive and you’ve just set the price for yours…

As for breaking from one drop, I can corroborate that claim with personal experience. IP theft is a serious issue and shouldn’t be thrown around without proof, so please cite the case.

Disappointing to see that Amazon has pushed PRIME unto this website.

Yes, I’ve used one before as a growler.

A Yeti Rambler is a sasquatch who can’t stop talking.

All of the Yeti “bottle” caps will fit this model. As I mentioned earlier, the chug cap works great. The wide mouth can be a bit much - like drinking from a fire hose.

There are a lot of people that complain about the straw cap because as the ice melts, it builds up pressure inside the bottle. When you open the straw the water squirts out due to the pressure.

Is three enough? There’s more if you like.

I thought it was a sasquatch-like animal that drove old box-like cars.

There is more IP in a design than simply the vacuum layer. Materials used, styling, manufacturing techniques, etc or the combination of one or more of these items are all areas where it’s possible to obtain patents.

I don’t follow the Yeti cases closely, but the claims were valid enough that Walmart agreed to settle instead of litigating. I think they’re back in court again.

“…from the small bottles…”

Unless I’m mistaken, that’s exactly what he was referring to. Additionally, Yeti has no clean slate on ripping IP. Let’s use the Colster as an example. Here’s the lifetime patent well 40 years before Yeti was founded.

I own a tundra 45 and it’s fantastic. One could argue that Engel was the first with rotomolded coolers, but there are enough appearance differences that Engel did not sue Yeti.

I’m not a Yeti hater in the least, but people defending their brand is laughable.

Who says they did?

If you would quote the entire sentence, you would see where you’re mistaken.

As for the Colster, here’s the patent list for Yeti’s product: D752397, D780530, D779891, D780531, D780532, D780533, D779892, D779285, D786025

[quote postid=“7417722” Try returning a broken Ozark to Walmart and see how far you get.

For $33 you’re not going to find a better water bottle for kids sports.[/quote]

Well , walmart will replace it with or without a receipt… Probably the most lenient return policy on the planet… May be for sale price if without a receipt, but that’s it…

Absolutely. I use mine all the time! I’ve had it for about 4 years, dropped multiple times and it still works like new to include all seals.

Best Comment Of The Day!!!

An ellipsis (plural: ellipses) is a punctuation mark consisting of three dots. Use an ellipsis when omitting a word, phrase, line, paragraph, or more from a quoted passage. Ellipses save space or remove material that is less relevant.

You stated the commenter wasn’t referring to small bottles when the evidence suggests they clearly were.

Your grasp on punctuation is about a tenuous as your grasp of this conversation.
An ellipsis is used to omit superfluous information from a quote and you clearly used it, and continue to do so, to be intellectually dishonest and ignore the relevant part of the statement just to appear right.

You’re wrong, you got called on it, deal with it.

Touchy touchy.

It’s time to hand the phone back to your mom. I bid you adieu.

Yay! I win!

The battle of the ellipses. Put that on your resume. LOL

Patents don’t last 40 years. After they expire the IP is free to everyone. That is the patent bargain.
