Thanks for your reply. This one does look like a tumbler, but I'm confused by the shape of of the bottle/tumbler I posted. It looks too tall to be a tumbler, it has the shape of a bottle, but doesn't have the screw-on cap that bottles have. So maybe it could be called both?
It's an interesting question because its a product that falls between existing definitions. There is then the question of how you define it, versus how you refer to it day to day.
Yes. I wish I could see the bottom-right picture clearly to see whether the top is configured for drinking directly, drinking with a straw, pouring, or some combination. The crucial difference is just a white blur to me.I think if it was intended for my personal use and I was drinking directly from it, I'd call it a travel mug or coffee cup. If it was big enough that I was going to share it with my friend and pour some into another cup with her I'd call it a thermos.
Looks like it's for drinking from: the raised lip opposite the hinge looks fit for purpose, the little hole visible in the plane of the white lid is likely a vent and the hinged lid has two rubber projections, one (large round) to seal the drinking hole (not visible) and another (rectangular) to seal the vent hole. Both of those seal their openings when the hinged cover is snapped in place.Yes.

Well, like I said, this is a newer product that blends attributes of different older products. It's bigger than a mug or cup, it's insulated, but it also is for personal use. There are so many variants of oversized personal use insulated beverage containers! Also from many different manufacturers. So there is no one special word.oh my, so confusing...so I guess it varies from person to person...
