For the last six months, many of our staff have been using Yeti Cups On Sale and Rambler Bottles at the range. If you’re familiar with YETI’s line of coolers, their drinkware doesn’t disappoint and keeps hot liquid hot and cold liquid cold — all day — regardless of ambient temperature. Each Tumbler and Rambler bottle is constructed of kitchen-grade 18/8 stainless steel surrounding double-walled vacuum insulation. This combination literally crushes its plastic insulated competition all while keeping beverages cold (or hot) for twice as long.
Over the final cold months of winter, my routine was as follows: After brewing a pot of coffee or hitting a drive-thru on the way to the range in the morning, I fill a 30-ounce Wholesale Yeti , which fits in most vehicle cup holders (I haven’t come across any that it doesn’t). Once at the range, I set up my guns, ammunition and targets. The Tumbler accompanies me on my walksdown to the 100-yard berm to paste targets and back. Between strings of fire, I continue to sip hot coffee, which helps take the bite out of the cold weather. Range days typically last six or more hours, and my coffee remains hot, even after my hand warmersstop producing heat.
As the days warmed up, I switch over to iced coffee. At the end of my range session, my Wholesale Yeti Cups is void of coffee, but virtually all the ice remains. This shows two things: My drink was still cold as I was consuming it and the flavor was maintained because it wasn’t watered down with melted ice. I’ve begun taking a 64-ounce Rambler Bottle and a 30-ounce Rambler Tumbler with me to up my consumption of ice-cold fluids. I fill the Tumbler Rambler with iced coffee for the morning and the Rambler Bottle with a sport drink, like Gatorade, and I’m good for the day.
Aside from keeping your drinks the right temperature, one of the benefits of the dual vacuum insulation is that the Wholesale Yeti Tumblers and Rambler Bottles don’t sweat. This keeps my hands dry, a benefit when shooting a pistol, where grip consistency is key. It also doesn’t leave a puddle in my truck’s cup holder. YETI’s Rambler Tumbler has replaced all of my other drinking containers, even while at home and especially on the road. Good-bye Nalgene bottles, hello YETI.
