How did the company get the name ‘YETI’?
The YETI (abominable snowman) is the legendary ice monster from the frigid lands of perpetual snow in the Himalayas. Despite years of searching by Sir Edmund Hillary and his crew of Sherpa mountain guides, firm proof of the YETI’s existence remains elusive. Like the YETI, these products are tough, hard-wearing, and adapted to harsh environments. We may not have found the YETI, but we make a really great outdoor gear.

Where Are YETI Products Manufactured?
Our Tundra coolers are manufactured in the USA at facilities located in Minnesota and Wisconsin as well as at a facility located in the Philippines. Our Hopper coolers, Panga duffels, and Rambler drinkware are manufactured in China. The LoadOut 5 gallon bucket is manufactured in South Carolina.
What is proposition 65 and how does it relate to YETI?
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address growing concerns about exposure to certain chemicals, which requires businesses to notify Californians about significant amounts of chemicals in products. This warning appears on certain YETI products in the form of the sticker or notice on the product for our California consumers.
What is a YETI® Tundra® Cooler?
The YETI Tundra was created to solve the age-old problem of subpar coolers failing in the field. Tired of busted latches, bowed-in lids, and melted ice, brothers Roy and Ryan Seiders set out to make a superior hunting and fishing cooler — and YETI was born.
Tundra and Roadie® coolers are rotomolded, which is the same process used to create whitewater kayaks. And we designed the coolers to keep ice longer — a lot longer — by pumping them with over twice the insulation compared to most ordinary ice chests. The result is a cooler family with a dramatic durability and ice retention advantage over most any other cooler on the market.
Tundras are great for hunting, sport-fishing, camping, boating, rafting, tailgating, paddling, and barbecuing. Oh, and beer drinking, too. There’s even the Tundra 250 and 350 for commercial uses, like oil & gas, construction, and medical industries. The Roadie is BYOB’s new best friend. Roadie and select Tundra sizes are available in color ways including classic white, desert tan, ice blue, and limited edition colors.
What does rotomolded mean?
The rotational molding (also known as rotomold) process is a high-temperature, low-pressure plastic forming process that uses heat and biaxial rotation (i.e., rotation on two axes) to produce hollow, one-piece parts. The YETI cooler mold is loaded with polyethylene in powder form. The mold is then placed in a large oven while it rotates on two axes at different speeds, which helps prevent powder from accumulating in one spot. The polyethylene melts and adheres evenly to the wall of the mold. Once the polyethylene is melted, the molds are pulled out of the oven to cool. And once cool, the ice chest is then removed from the mold. It’s kind of like a huge, spinning Easy-Bake Oven that cranks out coolers instead of cakes.
The process has inherent design strengths, such as consistent wall thickness and strong outside corners that are virtually stress-free. The rotational molding process gives the coolers one-piece construction and unmatched durability.
How strong are Tundra coolers?
What does “Grizzly-Resistant” Mean?
Our hard-sided coolers were tested by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC), a U.S. Forest Service Department of Agriculture Committee that works in both controlled and wild settings with grizzly bears.
The IGBC publishes minimum design and structural standards, inspection and testing methodology for bear-resistant containers. YETI Tundra met the IGBC requirement both in the engineered test and the live bear test. The IGBC officially approved the YETI Tundra and Roadie for use on public lands and national parks occupied by grizzlies.
How long will YETI Tundra hold ice?
There are many variables that will affect ice retention, so this is a difficult question for us to answer. Variables that can affect ice retention include the ice quality, ice quantity, type of ice (crushed, block, cube, dry), outside environment, exposure to direct sunlight, etc. Which is to say there’s a lot you can do to affect the longevity of your ice.
Over the years, we’ve received many different reports from YETI users in the field regarding ice retention. Some customers have reported having ice after their two-week trip on the river while others have said that their “crappy brand X cooler will hold ice better.”
Because of the large number of variables, as well as the lack of an industry standard for measuring ice retention, claims that place a definite time (5, 10, 14 days) are often based on testing conditions and not real-life situations.
In the end, the Tundra offers up to 3 inches of polyurethane foam insulation, combined with a freezer-style sealing gasket. Beyond that, everything else is out of our control. But if you can minimize the negative variables that affect ice retention, YETI coolers can’t be beat. And we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of tips and tricks to maximize ice retention.
Can I use dry ice in my Tundra?
When I threw a bag of ice in my Tundra and my cheap cooler, the ice lasted longer in my cheap cooler. Why?
A small amount of ice is not a good indicator of how well your ice chest can retain ice due to excess air space within the cooler. Excess air space hurts ice retention. To maximize ice retention, fill your cooler to the top with ice and products. In addition, if the ice chest starts out warm, a small amount of ice could initially melt faster in a YETI cooler than a thinner-walled cooler.
Best ice retention results are achieved by filling the ice chest completely with high-quality ice, which means using block ice that’s well below freezing temperature. In addition, maximum ice retention can be attained by pre-chilling your cooler. This will sufficiently cool the insulation and inside of the cooler, which helps the thick polyurethane walls work for you, not against you.
YETI Tundras have up to 3 inches of polyurethane foam insulation, which is significantly more than most common ice chests. If you use enough ice to chill the walls, YETI will most definitely outperform the competition.
Will my YETI keep my hot items hot?
You might be surprised to read this, but YES. The same insulation and thick walls that keep the cooler cold also keep the heat.
What size Tundra should I buy?
For a full size breakdown, please see our dimension chart for measurements and capacity.
The Tundra series matches closely (usually within an inch) with many popular coolers that have been on the market for years. However, the quart size of the Tundra will be a bit lower due to the thickness of the walls and amount of insulation. Another thing to consider when choosing a size is that you want to fill the cooler with as much ice as possible, minimizing air space to achieve maximum ice retention. So if you only have a small number of items to keep cool, you would want to choose a smaller ice chest and vice versa. Pretty simple idea, but check out our rough guidelines for finding the appropriate size coolers for your needs.

How do I clean my Tundra?
For general cleaning we recommend using soap and warm water.
For a more thorough cleansing and problems with strong odors, use a solution of warm water and bleach (6:1 ratio) with a sponge or mildly abrasive rag. Odors can easily get trapped in hard to reach areas such as around the gasket and drain plug, so be sure to thoroughly scrub those areas.
For tough stains and very foul odors we would recommend cleaning your YETI with a high pressure soap spray found at a local do-it yourself car wash.

What is a YETI Hopper™?
It’s the ice-for-days, tough-as-nails soft cooler. The YETI Hopper is built to go the extra mile with its extremely portable design and construction. It’s leakproof, puncture-resistant, able to keep ice for days, and ready to hit the trail, boat, or blind. This is one soft cooler that’s anything but.
How long will the Hopper keep ice?
The Hopper, with its welded DryHide™ double-TPU Shell, thick ColdCell™ Insulation, and waterproof HydroLok™ Zipper provides serious cold-holding power. But due to all of the variables that affect ice retention, and because every adventure is different, we believe it is misleading to make specific claims about how long a cooler will hold ice.
If you want to maximize ice retention, check out our ice retention guide.
When I threw a bag of ice in my Hopper and my cheap cooler, the ice lasted longer in my cheap cooler. Why?
Just like the Tundra, the Hopper is designed to keep ice colder longer, but there are many variables that can affect your ice. This includes the ice quality, ice quantity, type of ice (crushed, block, cube, dry), outside environment, exposure to direct sunlight, etc. Because of the extensive factors and no industry standard for ice retention, we don’t make specific claims about how long your ice will last in the Hopper. But we’ve done extensive testing on how to make your ice last longer, with everything from using rock salt to pre-chilling your cooler.
If you want to make the most out of your ice retention, please view our ice retention guide.
What size Hopper should I buy?
The Hopper was engineered for portability. Any size is the perfect on-the-go cooler for kayaking, floating the river, or short camping trips. Something to consider when choosing a size is that ideally you would want to fill the cooler with as much ice as possible, minimizing air space to achieve maximum ice retention. Therefore, if you only have a small number of items to keep cool, you would want to choose a smaller cooler or vice versa.
Please see our dimension chart for measurements and capacity.
How many cans will fit in my Hopper?
With plenty of ice to help chill your drinks, here is the number of 12 oz. cans that will fit inside the YETI Hopper. Ideally you want to have an ice-to-contents ratio by volume of at least 2:1 (reflected in the below quantity).
- Hopper Flip 8 - 6 cans
- Hopper Flip 12 - 12 cans
- Hopper Flip 18 - 16 cans
- Hopper Two 20 – 18 cans
- Hopper Two 30 – 24 cans
- Hopper Two 40 – 36 cans
How do I clean my Hopper?
A mixture of dish soap and water should do the trick. Rinse with fresh water and then thoroughly wipe the inside dry with a cloth or paper towel. Leave the HydroLok™ Zipper open for several days to ensure all moisture has dried. Taking care of your HydroLok Zipper is also extremely important. Each Hopper comes with a small tube of lubricant. Make sure you apply this lubricant following cleaning, before storage, and anytime the zipper feels stiff. Make sure your zipper is always free of dirt, grim, or other debris for maximum performance and life.
Always store your Hopper in the fully closed position, making sure the inside is completely dry.
WARNING: Do not machine wash. Do not dry in an oven or clothes dryer.
How To Clean Your YETI Hopper
What options and accessories are available for my Hopper?
Accessorize your Hopper with the flexibility of the HitchPoint™ Grid. Easily fasten bottle openers, carabiners, key chains, or accessories such as the YETI SideKick™ Gear Case through the nylon strapping. You can also outfit your Hopper with the MOLLE Bottle Opener and MOLLE Zinger.
For a complete list, please visit our Hopper Accessories page.
Why is my Hopper so stiff and hard to open?
Like a good pair of boots or a quality baseball glove, the Hopper takes a little time to break in. The extremely durable materials of the Hopper can make it feel rigid when first put into action. Loading and unloading contents will become easier as the materials relax with use.
The HydroLok Zipper is the best cooler zipper in the world, and with a little care and maintenance can last a lifetime. We recommend long-term storage with the zipper in the fully closed position to help protect the U-Dock™ seal. We also recommend regular application of the included zipper lubricant — especially when putting into storage — by carefully applying the lube to the U-Dock front, back, and inside.
What is a YETI Rambler™?
YETI Ramblers are over-engineered, 18/8 stainless Tumblers, Bottles, Colsters®, and Jugs designed with double-wall vacuum insulation and a No Sweat™ Design. The Tumblers will keep your soda, beer, smoothie, or mixed drinks cold twice as long as plastic cups. The Colster is like a steel bear hug for your cans and bottles, while its Load-and-Lock™ Gasket keeps your drink in its place. The Bottles go wherever there’s a need for ice-cold or piping-hot beverages. Their Over-the-Nose™ Technology makes for easy loading, drinking, and cleaning. And their TripleHaul™ Caps are 100% leakproof and comfortable to grip.
Are Rambler products BPA free?
Yes. All YETI products are BPA free. Learn more here.
How long will my Rambler keep ice?
Due to all the variables that can affect ice retention, we can’t guarantee a precise amount of time that your Rambler will hold ice. However, more ice is better when it comes to your Rambler Tumblers or Bottles. We suggest filling your Rambler with as much ice as possible.
Ice is melting in my Rambler as quickly as a solo cup. Why?
We designed the Rambler Tumblers and Bottles to live up to the YETI standard, which means unbeatable durability and unparalleled ice retention. If you feel like your Rambler is underperforming, reach out about your YETI Warranty. We take pride in the products we make. If anything is wrong, we’ll make it right. Read up on our Warranty Policy to determine if a Warranty Claim is necessary.
What size Rambler should I buy?
How many ounces will fit in my Rambler?
How do I clean my Rambler?
The Rambler Tumblers, Lowball, and Bottles are all dishwasher safe. You can also clean your Rambler with dish soap and warm water. Do not use bleach or abrasive cleaners. For a more thorough clean, remove gaskets, wash, and dry separately before reinstalling.
Can I get my Rambler customized?
Yes, through the official customization services at YETI Custom Shop. The YETI-approved process called Laser Marking, creates a permanent finish on the exterior of the Rambler. This process creates the most premium, durable finish that won’t scratch, fade, or peel off over time. It will also keep your 5-year warranty intact and ensures a quality customization process. Any Rambler products hydro-dipped or powder coated by a third party are void of their YETI warranty.
We also offer a variety of collegiate Ramblers. Click here to see the entire collection.
What options and accessories are available for Rambler?
Currently, the Rambler series has Straw Lids and MagSlider Lids to outfit your Tumbler, with Replacement Lids and Load-and-Lock™ Gaskets if you misplace yours.

Most Rambler sizes are available in DuraCoat colors including olive green, seafoam, Tahoe blue, black, brick red, and limited edition colors including pink.
For a complete list, please visit our Rambler Accessories page.
What is a MagSlider Lid?
We're glad you asked. Built for our Rambler tumblers, this closable lid harnesses the power of magnets to help protect against splashes on the go. Hear more about what makes the MagSlider so special here.
Is there a warranty on the MagSlider Lid?
Yes, absolutely. We offer a 5-year limited warranty against defects in material and workmanship. This warranty applies to only the original owner and is void if the product is used commercially, structurally altered, or subjected to stress beyond the physical limits of the materials used in body or components, or is damaged as a result of abnormal use. Normal wear and tear is not warrantied.
Does my Rambler lid close?
Using the power of magnets, your MagSlider Lid absolutely closes.
How do I clean my MagSlider Lid?
Cleaning the MagSlider Lid is not only dishwasher safe, but is easy to clean by hand. Just pop off the MagSlider, rinse it off and return to the Slider Lid. That's it!
Can I purchase the MagSlider magnet part separately?
Currently we do not offer the magnet component separately.
I purchased a Rambler Tumbler but it didn't come with a MagSlider Lid. Can I get one now?
We're glad to hear you're excited about the new MagSlider Lid. All Rambler 20 and 30 oz Tumbler orders going forward from July 19 will include this lid. Unfortunately, we aren't able to replace lids for orders that were already shipped.
What is a YETI Panga Submersible Duffel?
It’s the airtight submersible gear fortress you can haul anywhere. The Panga Submersible Duffel is YETI’s first non-insulated piece of gear that lives up to the standard of being built for the wild. It’s designed for extended backcountry trips, fly fishing adventures in far off places, whitewater trips down the biggest rivers, or any adventure where you need to keep gear dry and protected.
What does submersible mean?
Submersible means this bag is absolutely airtight — nothing gets in, no gear goes out. We tested the Panga extensively, including submerging it underwater at a depth of one meter for roughly 30 minutes, to ensure it will keep your gear dry. We want to make sure you continue to have the same performance adventure after adventure, so we recommend testing your Panga at home before taking off into the wild. To test the airtight seal, close the zipper completely and place pressure onto the bag. Listen for any air that might have broken the seal or material. If you hear or notice any air leaks, make sure zipper is fully closed and then test again. If the leak persists, please contact our Outfitter team at 1-512-394-9384 and they’ll help get you sorted out.
How strong are Panga duffels?
Strong. The ThickSkin™ Shell material, EVA molded bottom, MetalLock™ Hardware, reinforced QuickGrab™ Lash Points, and HydroLok™ Zipper (which you can also find on the Hopper™ coolers) are all tested to exceed the worst we could throw at these duffels. This includes going overboard, packing-in, pitching camp, and making it home again in one piece.
Is the Panga insulated?
Nope. The Panga is not a cooler and has no insulating properties. It is a gear bag that will keep you gear dry and protected for any expedition you want to go on.
What size Panga should I buy?
Here’s a handy chart to help you figure out which size will work for you.
What can I pack in my Panga?
Anything you want to keep dry and away from the elements, with the exclusion of food and drink — use a Tundra® or Hopper for that. We use it for waders, clean clothes, decoys, ammunition, jackets, fly rods, and any other gear we want to stash when we’re off the grid.
How do I clean my Panga?
A mixture of dish soap and water will do the trick. Rinse with fresh water and then thoroughly wipe the inside dry with a cloth or paper towel. Leave the HydroLok Zipper open for several days to ensure all moisture has dried. Taking care of your HydroLok Zipper is also extremely important. Each Panga comes with a small tube of lubricant. Make sure you apply this lubricant following cleaning, before storage, and anytime the zipper feels stiff. Make sure your zipper is always free of dirt, grime, or other debris for maximum performance and life. Always store your Panga in the fully closed position, making sure the inside is completely dry.
Is the Panga TSA-certified to carry on?
The Panga 50 is carry-on compatible for most airlines. Each airline has their own policy so please check before traveling with your Panga. When traveling, keep in mind that the Panga’s HydroLok Zipper does not have a lock or locking mechanism.
What is a YETI LoadOut Bucket?
The LoadOut Bucket is the overbuilt, five-gallon addition to the marina, ranch, blind, or wherever else rugged storage is a necessity.
How strong are LoadOut buckets?
Really damn strong. The LoadOut Bucket walls are twice as thick as conventional buckets and are made out of rigid HDPE plastic. They’re built not to bow, break down, or crack, even with impact.
Is the LoadOut insulated?
Nope. The LoadOut Bucket not intended to keep your food or drinks cold.
Is the LoadOut food safe?
Yep. We first got the idea of the LoadOut Bucket at a crawfish boil years ago. We knew then that it needed to be able to haul fried chicken, sunflower seeds, and any other food we needed to get from here to there. So while the LoadOut Bucket is not insulated, it is food safe for anything you need to store.
Do LoadOut Buckets stack?
Yep, and unlike other buckets, condensation and pressure will never build up between buckets when stacked, which means they’ll always separate easily.
Does the LoadOut have UV protection?
Sure does. UV protection is part of the LoadOut construction. This adds a great deal of long term durability to the product, since extended sun exposure will degrade the wall strength over time.
How do I clean my LoadOut?
Just soap and warm water. Nothing fancy required.
What options and accessories are available for LoadOut?
We have three different accessories to outfit your LoadOut Bucket for whatever the wild has in store.
