YETI Coolers does a truly remarkable job of taking completely ordinary products used in every day life – i.e. a bucket – and reengineering it into an aspirational lifestyle essential. Earlier this year they released wine tumblers and an ultra lightweight camping chair that can handle up to 500lbs, constructed of fabric won’t break, tear, or buckle. They’re wizards making products that are virtually indestructible, even if they are, in fact, the most expensive option on the market.
The next three items on YETI’s product list: Dog bowls for the YETI pups, handsome backpacks for all your essentials at work, school, or in the field, and tough blankets, engineered to stay warm in all sorts of conditions.
YETI Dog Bowl
Finally, a YETI tumbler for your best friend. These are made of the same materials as a YETI Rambler or YETI Colster vacuum-insulated can koozie, except it’s for all the Very Good Boys. According to YETI:
For added convenience, the BearFoot™ Non-Slip Ring on the bottom ensures it won’t slip and slide across the floor — no matter how enthusiastically your canine chows down. Most importantly, it’s BPA-free so you can fill Boomer to the brim with eight cups of fresh water, tasty treats, or the world’s best kibble.
Trust me, this will be on every single gift guide known to man come the holidays. They’ll sell a million of them, even with the $49.99 price tag.
YETI Tocayo Backpack
Next up! A great-looking backpack, constructed with a shell so it stays upright and cushioned laptop pocket for your commute. It’s a “TOUGH” pack intended to handle whatever you throw at it during your work week. Did I mention it repels rain and won’t tear? Yea, that’s pretty clutch, especially considering all the electronics most of us throw in our carry-alls these days.
Price tag: $249.99
YETI Lowland Blanket
And finally, the YETI blanket. Think about it like THE ULTIMATE picnic/camping blanket. You can throw it wherever you want without worrying about wear and tear. When you need it to stay warm, it does that too. Personally, I wouldn’t mind throwing one of these on the backseat of my Jeep for beach trips and camping adventures.
Equal parts waterproof and ultra-comfortable, the Lowlands™ Blanket helps transform every outdoor concert, tailgate, or backcountry post-up into your personal base camp. Plus, your dog will love it, too, because Lowlands repels dirt, burrs, and pet hair — so let them sit, lay, and roll around on it as much as they like.
Comes in two colors: Fireside Red and Smoke Blue.
Do I need it for that price? No. Absolutely not. No one needs anything from YETI at the price point.
But do I want one really, really, really badly?
Absolutely, without a doubt. I’d use it every damn chance I got, too.
