YETI Hopper Backflip 24

The Hopper BackFlip™ 24 fuses the durability of the Hopper Flip® with a new, convenient-to-carry design. It's our first cooler engineered to carry as a backpack, using the best tech of both worlds. Built taller and wider than its Hopper Flip counterparts, Hopper BackFlip is designed to efficiently distribute the weight of your goods, while the ergonomic shoulder straps make the journey more comfortable. Even more, a removable chest strap and waist belt are included for added stability and security. And like the rest of the Hopper® family, it promises superior cold-holding, a 100% leakproof zipper, and a tough DryHide™ Shell. So, go ahead and trek to your favorite faraway fishing destination, because this backpack cooler won’t slow you down.

YETI Half-Gallon Jug

The Rambler® Half Gallon Jug is built to take on the wild, whether that’s rough tumbles from the truck cab or fishing the Texas flats in August. Like the rest of the Rambler series, it’s constructed from 18/8 stainless steel, has double-wall vacuum insulation, and comes ready with our No Sweat™ Design. But this Rambler Jug is also outfitted with our MagCap™ and dock, so your cap is never out of reach while you grab a drink. The one-inch of lid insulation locks in your drink’s temperature unlike any other water jug out there. If you want to take your cold (or hot) drinks further for longer, the Rambler Half Gallon Jug has you covered.

YETI Panga Backpack 28

The Panga™ Backpack is an airtight citadel merging the durability of the Panga Duffel with a tried-and-true backpack design. Its ergonomic DryHaul™ Shoulder Straps offer extra carrying comfort, while the removable chest straps and waist belt provide added stability and security while you trek. And no need to carry it over your head while you wade or blink an eye if left out in the rain, because it's a 100% waterproof gear fortress equipped to outperform any other backpack out there.
