Built to Last: Gifts That Will Work Forever

YETI products are tough as nails and will be around to hand down as heirlooms. So they make perfect gifts for anyone on your list.

YETI disrupted the market years ago with its durable, high-end coolers. Today, the Texas-based brand has a full line of tough and long-lasting products, many of which make memorable gifts.

Here’s our handpicked spread from the YETI line. From dog bowls to backpacks, we’ve tested many YETI products. And time and again, they’ve impressed us with durability, utility, and a rugged design that will last through years of tough use.

Rambler 20oz Tumbler: $30

YETI Rambler Tumbler

Coffee or iced tea? Durable stainless steel with double-wall vacuum insulation keeps beverages hot or cold. A magnet-based closure on top adds a nice touch, flicking open and closed for quick access to your drink.

Rambler Bottle: $50

YETI Rambler Bottle

A good water bottle becomes part of your lifestyle. Gift one of the best on the market with the 36-ounce-capacity Rambler Bottle. It comes in multiple colors, from brick-red to a “naked” stainless steel.

A large-threaded cap screws on tight, letting you throw a full bottle in a backpack and know it’ll be leakproof and secure. Its insulation is second to none, so you know cold liquids stay cold and hot stay hot for many hours.

Hopper M30: $300

YETI Hopper M30

A soft-side option, the M30 has YETI’s new magnet-based closure. This gives quick and secure access to the goods inside. Like other soft-sides in the YETI line, the M30 has a special closed-cell foam for “cold-holding capabilities” and employs the company’s unique DryHide shell material, which feels like a tough-as-nails whitewater raft.

Rambler Colster: $25

YETI Rambler Colster

Ensconce an aluminum can in this double-wall vacuum case and your drink can be cold for hours. The Colster works with 12-ounce cans and bottles, and the company guarantees it to fit both “like a glove.”

V Series Cooler: $800

YETI V Series Cooler

The latest and greatest from the brand that redefined coolers, YETI’s V Series offers a new take compared to the brand’s tried-and-true rotomolded options.

This double-wall, vacuum-insulated, stainless steel cooler boasts the best thermal insulation in YETI’s stable. And it looks like a throwback despite having “downright futuristic technology.” Sign up here to be notified the instant this cooler goes live.

Crossroads Backpack: $200

Crossroads Backpack

Stealthy and built tough, the Crossroads offers a wear-anywhere backpack with 23 L of capacity. That’s enough room for day hikes, bike commutes, and travel use.

Tundra 65 Cooler: $350

YETI Tundra 65 Cooler

A big YETI cooler is requisite equipment for many people in the outdoors. This one comes in a soothing seafoam blue (and other motifs) and can hold 50-plus pounds of ice in its generous interior. That translates to 42 cans of soda or beer, or enough room for a weekend’s worth of food for a family.

Get a Tundra, and it’ll be around for many years of use and abuse, from the outdoors to tailgate events near home. The Tundra Hard Cooler comes in a variety of sizes to fit the needs of anyone on your shopping list.

YETI Hopper Flip 18
Soft-side coolers like the Hopper Flip serve as versatile food/drink vessels, from family picnics to soccer games. This one is big enough for daylong group outings. Its shoulder strap and grab handles make it easy to carry around, set down anywhere, then unzip for cooled beverages and food on the go.

Camino Carryall: $150

YETI Camino Carryall

Taking a title among the world’s toughest totes, the Camino is one of those products you didn’t know you needed — until you find yourself using it again and again for daily tasks and in the outdoors. It’s a simple open hauler made to carry food, gear, or supplies. A thick, padded, waterproof base lets you set it down anywhere with assurance that the items inside will be safe.

Boomer 4 Dog Bowl: $40

YETI Boomer Dog Bowl

YETI’s made-for-Fido Boomer bowl uses food-safe stainless steel for durability and a nonslip base to keep your pup from pushing this dish around hard floors. It looks sleek on the floor (or beside a tent at the campground), and the tough, double-wall construction adds durability.

This bowl is dishwasher-safe and available in six colors to match varying canine moods and motifs. If your pup needs more, you can opt for the larger Boomer 8 instead.
