Unlike ordinary coolers, which are essentially disposable, YETI® Coolers are made to last! YETI® Coolers are built to take the rugged abuse that comes with the way we work and play. Both the lid and body of a YETI® are built with seamless, one-piece construction.
And yes, these coolers are bear-proof. YETI® Coolers meet the USDA’s Interagency Grizzly Bear Comittee (IGBC) standards for bear-resistant containers. They have been thoroughly tested in both controlled bear simulations and with wild grizzly bears. With locks in the integrated padlock ports of a YETI®, grizzlies get nothing but frustrated.
Some of the features that make YETI the best cooler on the planet are:
T-Rex™ Lid Latches
The heavy-duty rubber T-latches, with patent-pending technology and molded-in keepers, keep your lid securely closed and are built to last.
BearFoot™ Non-Slip Feet
Non-marking rubber feet help keep your cooler where you put it. They prevent sliding and keep your YETI® up off the deck for easy rinsing.
NeverFail™ Hinge System
YETI’s full-length integrated hinge system will not fail. A full-length, rust-proof aluminum rod connects and holds the body and lid together. Plus, hinge-stops are molded into the lid, so the hinge can’t break.
You can’t break the handles on a YETI®. They have a textured grip and are secured with marine-grade nylon rope. There’s no slippery plastic to hold on to while transferring to a boat or a truck. Attachment points are integrated into the cooler body and keep handles out of the way when not in use.
Vortex™ Drain System
YETI’s screw-in gasketed drain plug is leak-proof and rugged. It’s designed to drain when partially open without having to fully remove the plug. The cooler floor is channeled and recessed for easy draining.
The integrated, recessed handles on a YETI® make solo carrying easier. Plus, they save valuable space and won’t get in the way.
AnchorPoint™ Tie-Down Slots
Tie-down slots are molded into the cooler body for solid mounting. They’re perfect for securing your YETI® to a boat, truck bed, trailer or barbecue rig.
We want to thank Joe Simmons for sharing a few photos of his new YETI® Cooler. Joe said, "I love my new Southern Tide Yeti cooler for so many things. We live an hour from Galveston, so we make frequent trips to the beach. It keeps the beer and soda cold all weekend. I also use it for my fishing trips, backyard bar-be-ques and camping. There really isn't a better cooler on the market. Stick a skipjack on the top of it and it's icing on the cake!"
