How many uses can a bucket bring? Our video displays a wealth of scenarios – some classic, some new – for the YETI LoadOut Bucket.

YETI calls its latest icon of outdoor utility “virtually indestructible.”  The LoadOut Bucket offers a new take on an old favorite, the 5-gallon bucket.

Released this summer, the LoadOut has numerous upgrades, including a non-slip ring on the bottom (prevents sliding), food-safe plastic (bring dinner), and a burly webbed nylon handle strap (save your palms).

YETI's Latest Innovation Is... A Bucket?!

The Bucket List: YETI LoadOut Uses

Buckets can be used for most anything, from days on the lake to camping trips where you haul in gear. And we found them good for boaters, ranchers, farmers, fishers, barbecuers, gardeners, construction workers, home DIYers, and all-around random load haulers.

Additionally, YETI sells bucket add-ons like an exterior utility gear belt, an internal caddy, and a watertight lid. The bucket comes in a 5-gallon capacity and costs $40.
