There is just no better way to keep your cool tailgating, on a hunting or fishing trip, camping or just hanging with friends, than with a YETI Cooler. Founded by two brothers who grew up loving the outdoors, YETI Coolers had a simple mission: build the cooler that could take any abuse they put it through in the wild or on the water.
YETI hard coolers, the Roadie and Tundra, are made through a process called biaxial roto molding. This processes involves layering polyethylene plastic resin, heating, and spinning it to get a seamless and nearly indestructible product designed to take years of (ab)use! To test this, a YETI Cooler was filled with food and submitted to the IGBC Grizzly test. 1,500 lbs of Grizzly Bear claws and jaws were unable to break into the YETI and the bear left hungry! Every YETI hard cooler features deep-freeze sealing gaskets, 2" to 2.5" of the highest quality insulation (other coolers come with 1" to 1.5"), and the YETI Guarantee that it will last many, many years.
The YETI soft cooler, the Hopper, is 100% leak proof and easily transportable. They are a bit smaller than their hard coolers and designed to fit any size adventure. They are made with a high-density fabric that is waterproof and puncture proof. Their Cold Cell insulation offers superior temperature holding and makes the coolers buoyant. The impressive Hydrolok zipper was inspired by cold-water survival suits and make the cooler completely watertight.
All YETI Rambler Drinkware are all made of 18/8 stainless steel and has vacuum-insulated walls that maintain temperature without transferring them to the outside, eliminating condensation and keeping your hands dry. Unlike cheaper alternates, they leave no lingering metallic taste and can withstand outside temperatures higher than others (over 160F and still keeps your drink cold). The lids are made from BPA free plastic and every part is dishwasher safe.
When shopping for a premium cooler you have a few choices - You can go with the leader or one of the knock-offs, and while you might save a few bucks, the YETI quality is far superior, will outlast any competitor. They were the FIRST to push the cooler past its limits; and they have no plans to stop any time soon. YETI is wildly stronger and keeps ice cold longer. Some of our favorites at OutlandUSA.com are the YETI 20 oz Rambler Tumbler and the Tundra 45 Cooler.
