What Is The Cool Thing About Yeti Coolers And Other Yeti Products?

Post by Robert J Sakimano on 2017-06-15, 13:41

I had never heard of them until someone referred to a "Yeti cooler" in a similar sense that others might reference the Declaration of Independence.

so I did a bit of research, as the person in question was really excited about the Yeti product he had recently procured. I found out that a Yeti cooler can cost from, about $100 upwards to $1,000.. is that correct?

what is it about them that makes them so expensive??

Part of it is brand name, part of it is the design. They're insulated to stay cool for days at a time, and their coolers can float.

The tumblers/ramblers, though, are overrated. The cheap-o 32 oz. ones at Walmart are rated better than the Yeti.

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Yeah the 32 oz ramblers are awesome for ice water or mixed drinks. But buy RTIC or (if you can stomach it) Ozark Trail from Wally World. Same product, lots cheaper.

I can see the need to want to keep stuff cold for more than half a day.. still seems like a lot of money for a cooler, though.

Yeti does a helluva job marketing.

To me they are to cooler/thermal products like Kalamazoo Grills are to that market segment.
Coolers are built like tanks but I'm not off roading in Death Valley.

The off brand stuff RTIC and Ozark mentioned above are made in the same factory as Yeti over in China. You pay extra for the Yeti logo. Some people (usually soccer mom milfs) think it's worth it.

Yeti coolers and similar products have two linings (walls) with a vacuum in-between. That's the key to locking in the hot/cold.

I have a 32 oz. Hydro Flask that kicks ass.

Edit: Oh, and when I use the vacuum think "lack of air" and not "cleaning carpet."

Built for the Broke
If it ain't a YETI...It's a SHITI
Are you sick of your friends bragging about their YETI Coolers and mugs? YETI has changed the culture for coolers around the world for years. As a result, YETI Cooler customers feel more badass than others just because their cooler "Keeps ice longer". After the average person purchases a YETI they believe it's a life changing event. Suddenly the man who never left his house is now pretending to fish, hunt, kayak and live out of a van just because he purchased a $400 cooler. Us SHITI Guys just don't understand it.

Let's not forget about the cooler that got you here. SHITI Coolers takes pride in the cooler hidden in grandpas garage or the cooler you've been taking on family vacations for years. We support coolers that keep beer warm! We all embrace the SHITI moments in life and love when shit goes wrong. Lets face it, the SHITI moments are much more memorable than the perfect ones..... Join the SHITI Cult and slap a SHITI sticker on your old ass cooler today!

oh, yeah - I'm guessing it's a very "up north" sort of thing - just from the price tag.

My company bought me one of these:



I have to admit, it's a pretty nice cooler. I will probably take a serious look at one of the big ones or a similarly built competing project for camping with the boys. Would be nice not to have to drive 30 minutes into town every day to refresh the ice in the cheap igloo.

I see organs being transported at work every now and then, they never use a Yeti. It is usually one of those thick foam types(like you get from Omaha Steaks not the shit from 7-11) or a standard run of the mill Igloo Playmate type.

Had heard of Yeti but had no idea the stuff was so expensive.

Camped in Acadia NP for 6 nights...beautiful park. Had made reservations at a SP southeast of Boston so took the pop-up down there. Rained the first night. Got out of the trailer the next morning to discover someone had stolen the 120 quart Coleman cooler we had put under the awning. Think I paid maybe $60-65 for the thing. Some of you are gonna love this...the only thing in it beside ice was 2 gallons of raw milk.

Can't imagine having to worry about leaving a $400+ cooler anywhere outside. The "Yeti" logo minus well read "Steal Me".
