What You Need to Know About YETI Coolers and Ice Boxes
When you venture into the great outdoors for some fishing, hiking, and camping, you need equipment you can rely on. This ranges from your tent to your icebox. New and used YETI camping ice boxes and coolers are available on eBay at great prices.What types of coolers does YETI make?
YETI offers two main types of coolers:
- Hard: These coolers have thick, hard walls, which contain one or two inches of PermaFrost insulation. The wall insulation ensures the contents stay frozen all day long, and rotomolded construction protects the iceboxes from damage.
- Soft: The brand's soft options are constructed of high-density fabric, which is lined with ColdCell insulation. The fabric is resistant to water, UV rays, and mildew, and the Hydrolok zipper prevents leaks.
The sturdy hard icebox options come equipped with features such as:
- T-Rex lid latches: These latches are constructed out of strong rubber, which helps reduce latch damage.
- Hinge system: To prolong the hinge mechanism, YETI equips the hard icebox models with an interlocking hinge design that includes two hinge pins.
- Tie-down slots: To make it easy to mount the icebox to vehicles and boats, they come with molded tie-down slots.
- Lid system: The lids are equipped with interlocking mechanisms, which prevent heat from entering the chest.
- Handles: These models have two types of handles. The DoubleHaul handles are made of military-grade rope and offer durability on long outdoor adventures. The LipGrip handles are ergonomic and easy to handle.
Soft coolers come equipped with features such as:
- Wide-mouth opening: The large opening provides ready access to food and beverages.
- Hitchpoint grid: This grid lets you attach small camping accessories, like bottle openers, to your soft cooling device.
These coolers come in a variety of sizes.
- Hard models: The brand's smallest hard coolers can store 20 pounds of ice or 16 cans. The largest options have room for more than 250 cans.
- Soft models: Soft cooler storage capacity ranges from 10 pounds of ice or eight cans of beer to 25 pounds of ice or 20 cans.
