    Hello guys,

    I'm wondering if any of you know where I could find a Nissan Titanium vacuum bottle.

    A few years ago it was introduced and I read a few reports on it but I can't seem to find any shop that still caries it.

    Does one of you know if these are still made/sold somewhere?

    Thanks in advance, best Scouting wishes from Holland,

    Bagheera

    Hi, Piet!

    I noticed and took a look at one in a Starbucks in Las Vegas (sounds funny to say, since I never drink coffee nor gamble), last Summer. They look like they could be pretty useful. I don't know whether they are still made. Perhaps someone who drinks coffee at Starbucks can check if they still sell them?

    Mike,

    Thanks, I guess I should have looked better then as my wife and I were in Las Vegas last year September for 3 days and we visited Star Bucks on the strip a few times (near the Coca Cola "bottle") and I didn't see it :(

    I searched with Google like mad but the sparce instances I find it it's all from 2001/2002 and no one seems to carry it anymore.

    Well I know someone who works at Star Bucks in Seattle I'll ask if he can get me one, perhaps even with a discount ;)

    Thanks again, best Scouting wishes from Holland,

    Bagheera

    You might keep a look out on ebay for one. I haven't seen them anywhere for a while, and with a $170 retail price for a Thermos, even if it is titanium, the price is still pretty steep.

    Stormdrane,

    $ 170 I thought they were going for around $130 ???

    I know it's a lot of money but what isn't nowadays and I have the added advantage of being able to use hard Euro's to get my $$ and that makes it a little easier on the pocket ;D

    I have send some email queries to shops that used to carry the bottle and also to my Star Bucks friend so now it's waiting for an answer.

    Best Scouting wishes from Holland,

    Bagheera

    I saw a new/unused one on ebay last year that said $170 was the retail price. The high bid at the time was over a $100 and still had a few days to go on it, I didn't follow up on it after seeing that so I don't know what it finally sold for. You never know, you might get lucky and find one for cheap. Put a listing in the WTB(want to buy) section on a few forums and someone might have one they're not using and willing to part with. Good luck with your search! :)
