CNN Underscore Best Test
Yeti is known for their extremely durable insulated coolers. If you’re looking to keep ice cold for days while camping or storing cold beer in the backyard, look no further than this 45 liter cooler. We tested the Tundra against 16 other products and voted it the best cooler. It outperforms all competitors and is the best cooler money can buy. The Tundra is also available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 35 liters to 350 liters.
Yeti’s coolers have extra-thick insulating walls, which means they’re bulky, heavy, and difficult to move. Thankfully, Yeti has put some wheels and a handle on the Tundra Haul so you can have a more portable cooler for the park or backyard.
If you’re really against lugging a bulky cooler around, consider the Hopper Backflip 24 Soft Cooler. It’s not as insulated as the Tundra range, but it’s perfect for picnics or beach trips. We tried out this backpack and really liked the comfort of the straps, the durability of the looks, and most importantly, how easy it is to keep your food and drinks cool.

Our pick for the best water bottle, the Yeti Rambler is an excellent water bottle that will keep drinks cold or hot for a long time. While the double-wall vacuum insulation is great, the Rambler beats every other bottle on the market with its clever lid. It comes in two parts and features a spout so you can pour water when you need it, but you can still quickly fill it with ice and water using the extra wide spout.
If you don’t want to carry around the extra weight of a Yeti thermos, the brand’s new Yonder thermos is just what you need. Made from BPA-free plastic, the bottle is lightweight yet lives up to the durability that Yeti is known for. Plus, its cap makes the Rambler our favorite water bottle.
Whether it’s morning coffee or afternoon tea, this insulated mug will help keep your drink hot until you’re done. After just 30 minutes, there’s no need to drink room temperature coffee anymore.
Whether you’re relaxing after a long day at work or getting ready to watch your favorite team play, there’s nothing worse than a lukewarm beer. Keep your favorite beer ice cold for longer with this Yeti Can Warmer. Plus, it comes in different sizes to fit your favorite cans, including slim and tall options.
Whether you’re sitting around the fire or relaxing on the couch, there’s nothing better than a glass of wine at the end of the day. If you like to chill your Sauvignon Blanc, check out this thermos. It’s available in five gorgeous colors and can even be customized.
Perfect for the campsite or the backyard, these stackable insulated pints are the perfect way to sip your drink while staying cool.
Keep more water ice cold for longer adventures with the Rambler Half Gallon Jug. This dishwasher-safe pitcher features a comfortable handle and easy-drinking spout to store all the water you need. Plus, it’s also available in full gallon sizes if you need to carry more water.
Your puppy deserves the best, even if it’s just their food bowl. This super-durable bowl is made of stainless steel, and although it’s not insulated, it’s puncture-resistant, stain-resistant, and even dishwasher safe.
If you’re planning to splurge on a dog bed, we recommend the Yeti Trailhead Dog Bed. It has a removable pillow insert, which means it’s actually two beds in one. Its durable yet soft outer material can withstand your pup’s rough enclosure, and when it gets dirty, the outer is removable and machine washable.
Perfect for the porch or backyard, this heavy duty camp chair is the pinnacle of comfort. With supportive mesh fabric and included cup holders, you can enjoy your leisure time. We tested this chair ourselves, and while we think it’s a little too heavy to be a must-have on every camping trip, it’s very comfortable and a great place to put it if you have a semi-permanent place like your backyard good choice.
If picnics are your thing, this oversized and durable blanket is a must-have. Its thick material has a water-resistant bottom layer and a soft, insulated top so you’ll stay comfortable on the ground even on the roughest terrain.
If you are a college student or someone who is always on the go, this versatile backpack is the perfect choice for you. With multiple pockets and a variety of storage options, this bag will quickly become your everyday companion.
Travelers who are ready to travel the world will love this 35 liter bag because the interior is structured more like a suitcase than a traditional backpack. If you need a personal item that can fit your clothes on the flight, like a suitcase, this is the bag for you.
Yeti’s Carryall Tote is perfect for day trips around town or the beach. Plus, it’s made of water-resistant material, so you can easily place it on your boat without worrying about water seepage. It does have a hood, however, so your stuff isn’t guaranteed to stay dry if it rains.
We’ve tested Yeti’s Crossroads line, and we really like its adventure-ready luggage. Available in 40L and 60L sizes, there is an incredible amount of internal and external organization. Plus, the bag’s sturdy material has withstood multiple camping trips in the year we’ve used them.
If you need a bag that’s completely waterproof, look no further than Yeti’s Panga collection. These bags are fully submersible to keep all your belongings dry.
No matter what your next adventure is, if you need a large, durable suitcase, this is the one for you. Featuring ultra-sturdy wheels and a tough, water-resistant exterior, this bag can take whatever you throw at it.
