I have the small cooler, not these drink cups with plastic covers. Those would be pointless since the heat will come in through the cover.

I traveled from San Jose to Las Vegas and there was still a lot of ice, in contrast to my small Coleman...

But you are right, they do spend a lot in marketing. I'm sure if a no-name company builds one with the same level of insulation and sealing, it will be just as good but very cheap. In fact, RTIC was one, until Yeti sued them for copying the designs.

So I'm checking out at the local hardware store today and I spot a Yeti straw on the point-of-purchase rack. $9.99. Looked pretty much like, well, a straw. But I'm sure it was a really good straw.

Whilst driving near work the other day on a local "motor mile"- I noticed a YETI dealership. It was somewhere in between the Subaru Dealer and the Ford dealer. It was a big friggin LED sign with crazy wavy arm thingees all around.

As I drove by, I was wishing I had my camera to post this to PPOT pics you have taken.

edit- I will drive by this place next week, and perhaps mount my go-pro onto my head and do a walk through so we can break up into discussion groups.

Maybe 9 out of 10.


I don't mean that in a good way It *is* the school with a "Former Student Association" instead of an "Alumni Association"

There are many and better alternatives to Yeti on the market. You just have to look in the right place.
