I bought a few of the Ozark Trail editions from Walmart - they do the trick very well. I have about 5 different styles.....including the 'wine glass' style!

I don't see the point

a beer lasts me at most 15 minutes
coffee - I let it cool and then drink it in 5 minutes on the way into work

Why do I need a cup that will keep things hot or cold for hours. A fresh beer is cold and a fresh coffee is hot... I don't care what temp my red wine is

Coolers that hold ice for days on end are nice - my old metal banded coleman from the late 1970's does that.......

I've known people to get the 1 gallon, and 64 ounce yeti. Never really saw the point compared to a camelbak.

YETI = Yuppies: Expensive To Impress

I have a double-walled metal (steel) mug I bought about 20 years ago with an evacuated chamber (vacuum) between the inner and outer walls. Forget the brand, it wasn’t cheap by any means but wasn’t stupid / Yeti expensive either. IIRC maybe $40 in 1990s dollars. It’s been awesome and keeps hot coffee steaming hot after 10-12 hours.

I like nice / quality stuff but see no reason to spend more for marketing / brand names. Heck, 99% of it is all made in the same sweatshops in China anyway and a lot of what’s out there for “name brand” is counterfeit these days unless you go direct to the source!

Used to take a thermos of cold milk, juice, koolaid, or hot cocoa, soup to school in grade school. The thermos fit into a metal lunch box. The thermos lid was even a cup. Didn't have Yeti or RTIC logo, but it did have all the characters from Bonanza on it.

I was helping a friend deck his porch a few weeks ago, and it was cold and very windy. COLD. I was handed a big Dunkin Donuts thermal mug of hot coffee which I did not have time to drink, but an hour later it was there and piping hot.

40 for a mug, no. But sometimes a warm drink is priceless.

Lid: $1.38 (really- for this price I'll just drink coffee out of the Lowes 5 gallon containers. It may not stay warm, but the volume is right.)

Hell- I can just buckle it in to the passenger's seat.

Conspicuous spending is a trend that marketers have recognized, and some are all over it. The hyped image is very appealing to some buyers and the market makers are happy to satisfy. Kind of a win win in a sick and very profitable way.

High profile auto auctions are another good example.

It is interesting to watch. Unfortunately it leads to a disconnect between value and cost that can impact entire markets. Ala 60s muscle cars.

Oh well there are other choices for those of us not so inclined.

Cheers Richard

Living in sunny FL I always have a can of something all day long. It's important to keep hydration going, I did pick up a $22 Yeti can holder on sale and I do like it.

That said, i wouldn't spend any more on the brand, but I do think the product is good.
