Default Yeti Colster...

It does its job well but I don't have a need for it so it's going back.

Even though it does keep a drink in a can or bottle cold it really doesn't have a purpose for me. I might be biased in that I don't screw around with cuzzies either. If I open a drink I will probably consume it before it gets uncomfortably warm and if it does I'll just throw it out and start again.

Now, the Yeti 20 oz. tumbler is friggin awesome and you cannot have mine.

He wanted to give it a try. I love mine and just bought my Dad one this evening. Last one I'll ever buy providing I don't lose it.

Yes the colster does work but more trouble than what it's worth.

They do keep a beverage cold for a long time. Like when the bite turns on and you have just opened a cold one.

I just wish Yeti would have put a rubber pad on the bottom.
It slides all over on gel or paint.

I could see these things being useful for those that drink sodas or girls/boys that sip beer, but beers in my hand don't last long enough to warrant paying more than $0 for boat show coozies.

I love how the system works.

Typical little college kid remark. Ooh Ooh I can drink more than you. Im beyond all that.

That's funny. Not sure what kind of income your on but $30 is sofa change for the average person.

Every morning I drink coffee from an insulated double wall tumbler. This is essentially the same thing, but with a screw top gasket. If there were nothing else like it, then maybe it could justify the $30 price tag, but it's a hard sell for me.

They might work, but I'll pass. And if I did buy one I'd get three of these for the price of one yeti. The Thermos one was on the market a few years back. But the yeti is "revolutionary"? Ha

30 > 0 anyway you slice it...and I drink beers faster than they would ever get too warm in a regular coozie...

Are you offended by what I said? Did you shed a tear over it? Seems to me...you did.

By the way, I own 2 of the large Ramblers so it ain't a money thing, big timer...

Yep, it's a beautiful thing, return it in the exact same condition (or better) than it was purchased. Not seeing a problem here.

It just doesn't get any better than a thread with Yeti and an income debate.

Schoolsout has the cheddar and contacts to buy Yeti and sell the company to the Chinese any day of the week.

Don't let him fool you about trying to fit in with the 99%'ers...

Does it matter if I put ringfree in my Merc or if I put quickleen in my Yamaha? Maybe I should just stick with Seafoam....
