Dave’s Take: The Yeti Rambler Insulated Bottles


Recommended Posts

I had the 18oz Rambler and found it too small, and I didn’t like that you have to remove the cap entirely to use drink. Ended up with a Camelbak Chute Mag, even though it felt more fragile, because of its mechanism for holding the cap. Used the Camelbak for about a year before it took one too many dings and stopped insulating. Really disappointing durability. So I’m back to the Rambler, 26oz this time, and it’s proving to be much tougher. Still annoying not to have a retainer of some kind for the cap, but worth the toughness IMO.

Shiny, Captain.

I can also attest to the great workmanship Yeti offers.  They truly make the best water bottles.   I believe what separates them from the rest is they're dishwasher safe.   Forget the brushes and scrubbing, and the mildew.  Hydroflask can't even do that. 

Right around Thanksgiving / Xmas 2019, they were offering free engraving, so we ended up getting 3 - 36oz bottles for the family.  Hopefully they'll bring back the free engraving this year.

You might just need to get a different cap, which is kinda unfortunate (would be nice if the bottle just came with a couple styles -- the additional caps are $10-15 each).

We didn't like the cap that came with the bottle either, so we stocked up on the Chug Magdock caps (bought a couple extras because, somehow, my wife lost a couple rubber seals from the inside of the smaller cap, seeming like they just fell out - I've yet to have that problem, but she also uses her bottle a lot more than I use mine, so 🤷‍♂️).

Magdock still requires that you take the small cap completely off, but the magnetic holster works pretty well. Straw and Hotshot don't require taking off a piece.

I got the 20 oz Yeti as a promotional item BUT it is in BLACK (with company logo).  If you leave it in the sun, the liquid is cold but you cannot pick it up without burning you hand! 🤨 Now I have to remember to keep it out of the sun. 

I really like these Yeti bottles but don't make it in black. Maybe the company got a deal on the black.

So as it happens I just bought the flip up straw cap for my wife. She loves it. So far so good on durability. Here's the link at Yeti but I bet you can get it at Amazon and etc.

That's a bit expensive, but exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks a bunch.
