Default Yeti vs Rtic tumblers

The only thing I can tell different is the price.

Very nice. Just like the coolers and all their products. Thanks for sharing. I'll take the RTIC.

I was going to say you need a hobby but I am actually glad you did this for us. Now we can save some money if looking to get one.

Ordered back in October with ship date of Jan 22. Checked status last night and said ship date March 5. So be prepared for a later date.

I read all these yeti, Rtic posts and decided I wanted a couple of the tumblers. I like to get a big ice coffee on my way out to fishing. DD, drink some and then have to re-ice the watered down version after 30 - 60 minutes of motoring to fish. Tumbler seems perfect. I tried to buy a yeti, but they were sold out on line, so I bought 2 of the Rtic....supposed to arrive in January.

I figured it would better than the DD cup! Thanks for doing the test!

Hope the Rtics come as fast as mine did, The Lady at West Marine told me today that they had 7500 Yeti Tumblers in there warehouse and sold them in two days, Christmas I guess.

My wife ( a teacher ) got the Yeti tumbler as a gift from one of her 5th grade students. Good thing, I was NOT going to pay $30.00 for one, but glad I got one for free.

Surprising this is the response I got from RTIC today. Response took less than 24 hours so I think it's an actual human.

They are all on back order. Estimate 30 days for tumblers and 135 days for the coolers.

Not sure how they can figure 135 days??

Honestly the Pelican Coolers are every bit as good or better than a Yeti and close to the cost of RTIC..... Yeti is just the "in" item right now. The Tumblers are legit though!!

I am going to order four RTIC tumblers. I am pumper on the ARTIC product because my 65 just arrived last Monday and believe me, it is the real deal. This cooler is every bit the equal to a YETI in quality and function. Saved $200 too.
