vtfireman85 Posted February 5 Share Posted February 5 I have not gone in for their coolers, we got dad a pelican, same Idea, equal quality, liked the latches better, but everyone hates the cooler, if I were off shore fishing, I could see it, but for camping or whatever it takes a huge amount of ice to get it cold, and I don't think it holds ice any better than my steel belted Coleman if its getting opened 15 times a day, and it is all anyone wants to carry empty, full it requires 2 people. I have to say however I am super impressed with their drinkware, it is well designed, expensive but not outrageous, and it is built like a brick outhouse. mom got dad a 20 oz tumbler a few years ago, I scoffed at it, I have always been a devotee of Hydroflask, I carry a couple 40oz insulated with me daily with water, and I carry one for coffee. but I was impressed with the magnetic slider on dads tumbler, and he claims his coffee is scalding at noon. Hydroflask redesigned their caps, and they are retarded, so I tried the 12 oz yeti rambler last year and fell in love, today I bought the 18 with a water type cap, switched it out for my coffee cap for now. it sat in the truck with my tea for 6 hours below zero and the tea was hot when I went to drink it. nuff said. only thing is, while it fits in my cup holder, its a little like carrying a fire extinguisher around. that's not a complaint, but it is a consideration. anyway, hats off to Yeti, they really do make a good product, and it is dishwasher safe, unlike their competition. in a world where everything seems to be getting crappier, these products are really well built. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
