Expert Reviews


What experts liked

A reliable bottle—it kept our drinks cool over a long period, and it has never leaked.
An extra large, rugged insulated bottle meant for those who like to throw stuff around. The screw-in lid has an extra-wide grip for easy carry, the bottle itself is nearly unbreakable, and it holds 36 ounces of liquid, more than other bottles in this class.
The Yeti performed extraordinarily well in drop tests, especially when dropped on its body. The bottle had some small denting on the bottom, but it barely had any wobble to it, which is really saying something after being dropped onto concrete three times.
Highly functional storage for hot and cold liquids. Durability is a big plus. Does a great job keeping the hot stuff hot and the cold stuff cold.
One interesting feature is that the threads for the bottle’s lid are set down slightly inside of the bottle’s wide mouth opening, such that the lid slides inside and twists shut, rather than enclosing over top of the threads like most wide mouth water bottles. This is a neat design which gives the YETI a feeling of additional compactness.

What experts didn't like

The lip and heft of that bottle make it less pleasing to drink out of.
The insulation is not the absolute best around.
Costs a little more than our overall pick.
Pricey. The Rambler 36, empty, weighs about a pound and a half. This makes it among the heaviest water carry options on the market.
It’s also worth noting that the YETI is somewhat lacking in the selection department in terms of looks and sizes when compared to Hydro Flask. Not to mention, the YETI Rambler bottles don’t really have any accessories.
