The new Yeti Rambler Jugs are over-engineered to ensure users won't need to make a replacement purchase for a long, long while.
Need to keep your favorite beverages hot or cold for extended periods of time while in the outdoors? Yeti, the same company that convinced us that buying a $400 cooler is completely acceptable, has announced two new additions to its ever-expanding line of products designed to keep us well hydrated on our adventures.
As usual with any product from Yeti, the new Rambler Jugs are over-engineered to survive just about anything short of a nuclear blast. Built from very durable kitchen-grade stainless steel, these containers are both puncture- and rust-resistant, shrugging off wear and tear with ease. But perhaps even more importantly, the jugs have also been designed to resist collecting odor, ensuring you won’t open the lid to discover a foul scent has taken up permanent residence inside.
Like all of the other products in the Rambler line, these containers feature double-walled vacuum insulation in the body. But these vessels also come with a specially designed lid that boasts an inch of insulation as well. This helps to maintain a constant temperature — whether hot or cold — for the beverages stored inside even hours after you’ve left home.
That same lid also includes Yeti’s new MagCap design, which utilizes a very strong magnet to hold the jug’s cap in place as you pour yourself a drink. The Yeti Rambler Jugs also come with an oversized handle that makes them much easier to carry from the car to the campsite, while an extra-wide mouth simplifies filling or emptying the container as well.
The new Rambler Jugs are expected to start shipping in April, with two models available. The half-gallon edition will sell for $100, while the one-gallon jug will carry a price tag of $150. Yeti also plans to sell a specially built mount for these containers that will allow owners to fasten them directly to a truck, ATV, boat, or other vehicle. Made from tough polypropylene, those mounts will retail for $40.
