YETI Brand stuff

Recommended Posts

Been wanting a YETI 30 Rambler Tumbler for a while. Online seems to be hit or miss with counterfeit ones and I didn't want to take the chance. They're NOT cheap. $40 for a 30 oz. stainless tumbler. Picked one up today and gave it a test.  It's as good as they advertise. Had ice and water in it while working at the shop. Mostly in the sun at 92*+. It worked so good as a matter of fact I drank all the water and had to add some warm bottled stuff that was in my truck.  Been 5 hrs and the thing is still 1/2 full of ice cubes. 

Would the cheaper Stanley brand work as good? Don't know, but I may try one of those also and give this to the Mrs.

Also checked out the $300 coolers. Very nice, but you would go broke buying one the size of your standard WalMart cooler. I'm sure it keeps turd cold for a LONG time, but you could buy ALOT of ice for the $300-$400 difference compared to a Walmart brand.

 A real YETI will have YETI embossed on the bottom side  and YETI stamped in the bottom. I'm sure the chineee will be doing both soon.


The coolers would make sense if you seriously spend a long time in the boonies or the desert, but for the weekend warrior I think it's a bit much.

With camping and hiking stuff, I usually see if they actively donate against OHV use.  Usually they are donating to the outdoor alliance group or sierra group iirc.

I have a hydroflask.  Keeps the hots hot and the colds cold.  I like it and use it often.

Has anyone checked out the Pelican coolers that also compete with Yeti? I've heard amazing things about them as well but the prices are still high for the weekend warrior. 

 

That Yeti tumbler is impressive.

What an idiot. Wonder if the wife knew he was chopping a stainless steel can open in the kitchen.

Looks like the big difference be tween Yeti and Rtic is Yeti cover is probably Lexan.

I wonder why wouldn't they make the cover insulated/double-wall SS like the rest of it? Would it get too hot on your lips?

 

I would guess mfg $ and size... Lexan would take up less room and be "good enough"/cheaper...

Love my Yeti 45. It's the absolute best cooler I've had. However I won it, I'd have a hard time spending 450 on a cooler.

 

Take a look at ozark trail brand stuff at the mart of walls. Companies on par with yeti and much cheaper. SS coozie is 7 bucks.

 

Big thread on pirate comparing the off brand stuff.
