YETI Hopper Two Cooler // $300.00 – 400.00
Frustrated with cheap gear? The YETI company says they set out to “build a cooler without compromise—one that would stand up to all the abuse we could throw at it.” Now, one of the fastest growing brands in the outdoor industry is lifting the lid on the Hopper Two™, an adventure soft-sided cooler that’s 100% leak-proof. Yes, you read that right boaters, no more soggy cushions or slippery deck!
YETI uses airtight HydroLok Zippers, usually found on waders, hazmat suits, and dry suits. Hopper Two™ coolers even come with zipper oil for longevity.
The Hopper Two™ is intended for easy hauling, so YETI built in a sturdy shoulder mount and tapered top. Welded seams and 1.5″ thick “ColdCell” insulation (closed-cell rubber foam) are supposed to keep your drinks cold for days. Packed with additional accessibility upgrades, the product line is available in 20, 30, and 40-liter options. YETI promotes the durability of the Hopper Two™ inside and out; DryHide Shell is the tough, waterproof lining fabric. Since the Hopper Two™ is sold as resistant to mildew, punctures, and UV rays, it could be the last time you worry about what’s inside, or outside, your cooler. Although actual punctures and normal wear-and-tear aren’t covered under the generous three-year warranty, defects in material and workmanship are.
Choose Field Tan/Blaze Orange or Fog Grey/Tahoe Blue. The 20, 30, and 40-liter coolers, “built for the wild,” cost $300.00, $350.00, and $400.00, respectively. Check Amazon.com or outdoor retailers for sales or shop at yeti.com.
