Yea, I have one. Work pretty good but I am not one that really likes beer out of a can but they do keep it cold

I used it on the beach this summer since it is a "no alcohol allowed" but as long as you keep it in something like that they do not really bother you plus it conceals it pretty well

Did pretty good on the hot beach

Now the tavel mugs by Yeti work great. Daughter got me one for Fathers Day and I am amazed at how well it works however SHE has "borrowed" it from me so guess I never see that one again

They work but kind of a pain to quickly change your can out, they don't fit in some cupholders and there heavy so confusion can be present as to if I need another beer or is that the weight of the colster.
I'm also not to see to have to actually keep my eye on my koozie, I'm a use and leave my koozie type of guy so now just another thing to keep up with.

I'm a bottle guy.
That said, I don't like this design. Too heavy and doesn't fit some drink holders.
Also, as stated above, takes practice to know when your beer can is empty.

Bought 2 cups and like them so much I bought 2 colsters. Had them lasered with my boat name. They'll stay on the boat.

They are a marketing machine! How much are they? How long does it take to suck down a brew, seriously, this is just awesome business!

They're on a roll that's for sure. I guess the next product coming out is cocktail glasses.

what's funny is that they aren't revolutionary at all despite what Yeti claims.

Thermos has been making an identical product for quite a few years. Yeti is $32 on amazon, Thermos is $12. Yeti should have just called their koozie thing "The Sucker".

The Compensator would be a better name.

I agree BUT Yeti does know how to market their items, Thermos does not too well or their's would be all over the shelves .

It costs a LOT of $$$ to market products and that is a lot of the difference in price however with that said Thermos has been around for years and weathered the normal storms of business. Guess we will see how well Yeti does in 10 years or so

I'm not arguing that Yeti is a marketing machine. It almost sounds like you're justifying paying more for an identical product because Yeti has colorful ads in magazines and sponsors every fishing tv show.

Have you seen the interest the RTIC coolers have created by selling an identical cooler to Yeti for half the price? Of course, the RTIC thing will be lucky to actually ship out a cooler after the lawsuits, but it proves that lots of people see right past the built in marketing costs in the Yeti products.

I don't have the colster - it seems a little bulky to me, both to hold and keep up with. Most of the time if I drinking beer from a can I can down it before my neoprene koozie lets it get hot.

I've had Yeti coolers since before they really caught on to the level they have now. I could see the value (to me) in a super sturdy cooler that also kept ice very well. It took me a little longer to buy into the mugs, 40 bucks for a glass when I've got a cabinet full of tervis'?but after a few buddies got them and swore by them I bought one and love it.

Buy this instead. What I use and they still will fit into a holder if you have to set it down and work like a champ.

You guys can get a Yeti sticker for a few bucks and put it on the Thermos koozie if it makes you feel better.

If you can't drink 12 oz. of beer before it gets warm in a regular coozie, give the damn thing to your wife.

Bottlekeeper. Google it, for the beer in a bottle guys. Similar to the Colster, but way cheaper, 'bout half the price I think. Not vacuum sealed, but is metallic with neoprene liner.
