I know this is slightly silly/non important,but my curiosity has gotten the best of me.I am a connoisseur of fine water bottles from around the world (sarcasm) and have acquired a decent collection,from nalgene,camelbak,outdoor products,SIGG,etc and most were got at thrift stores and goodwill (FIND A GOODWILL THAT WEIGHS ITS PRODUCTS TO FIND SWEEEET DEALS) and most are easily identifiable.I just got this one a few days ago,its built very well and Im sure its not an "el-cheapo" or generic bottle.It has a TM logo but I just cant find out what brand it is...again,nothing important ,but da#[email protected] I wanna know!!!
After 2 hours of searching google and bing for what brand of bottle this is,I have exhausted my resources and have instead decided to turn to the true,real,undisputed,undefeated experts of hydration and water bottles,the posters at whiteblaze :)
So,anyone recognize this logo???

Probably a promotional item for some organization or other.

Your Welcome. How did I find it?: Well.... Mostly kept changing the wording of my searches until I found a trail to follow.

-The logo did not register with me as Discovery at all initially.

-I tried Google Goggles on your image and got nothing.

-I was fairly sure the round part of the logo was a globe. Google image search of "Globe D logo" gets ties to the Discovery channel logo that looked similar.

-Image search of "Discovery water bottle gray" nailed it a few pages down on my phone with the Ebay sale image and others.

Well I have always thought I was the king of search.I buy lots of stuff 2nd hand (Im an ebay seller also) and frequently need to find info on products with no packaging or labels...But I yield my throne,to the new king of google---Matt65

This water bottle thread is no where near as silly as the threads that dictate Gatorade and Smart Water bottles as The One True Water Bottle.
Well done.

Well thank you sir :) So Ill give my .02 on the bottle anyway,now that its been identified.The discovery expedition bottle is one of my favs as an everyday water bottle at the moment and Im not a huge fan of stainless/aluminum for an EDC bottle.I prefer my nalgenes/tritan,but this one is not bad at all and will be kept"in rotation"(I drink a lot of water,haha).

You are welcome.
I am currently partial to refilled Essentia and Earth Fare bottles in 1 and 1.5 liter sizes.

By the way,Ive said before in threads and Ill say it again,find a goodwill in your area (preferably one that weighs its products) for great finds.
I currently have 2 camelbak sippers,750ML,1 camelbak eddy,1000ML,1 nalgene narrow,1 nalgene wide and the aforementioned discovery bottle and have less than $3.00 in the lot.In fact one of the camelbaks lids was inoperable when purchased,but 1 trip to their website and 8 days later,it was replaced.

My latest acquisition,just thought I would share and remind those who are on a budget,that goodwill is the ticket.I Paid less that $4 for the lot.

One of the Klean Kanteans was missing the lid,and I actually gave 2 of those lids away about a week ago :( but those little aluminum bottles like that are there so often,Ill grab a lid that fits next time I return.

The SIGG bottle is missing the sipper part.I contacted SIGG to see if I can get a replacement,if not it still holds water perfectly,so it will just act a reg water bottle.

The camelbak appears to be new.

Three Water Bottles for Cowboy Campers under the sky,
Seven for the White Mountain Hikers in their halls of stone,
Nine for Weekend Warriors doomed to die,
One for the Thru Hiker on his dark throne
In the land of the AT where the Shadows lie.
One Water Bottle to rule them all, One Water Bottle to find them,
One Water Bottle to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of the AT where the Shadows Lie.

My Precious!

Thank you sir...I told you,you gotta get out to the good will :) Although its about time for me to start selling some of these.I have all of my day packs/overnight packs/fitness gear bag stocked with specific bottles,then my everyday use bottles I use stocked up,too...I'm becoming a junkie.
That SIGG in the picture retails for $25 and I paid around a buck for it,just couldnt stop myself.
