Yeti 1/2 Gallon Jug Reviews
Let's start by getting one…
Let's start by getting one thing clear; as a general rule, I am not a fan of Yeti. For the most part, I find their products to be way overpriced, for the value received. I own their 20qt cooler, and several tumblers, and none of these work any better than their competition, which sell at about half the price. The exception is their half gallon and one gallon jugs. I paddle in Florida, and having cold water on hand, for a 7 hour day, is crucial. When my wife bought my first 1/2 gallon Yeti jug, i immedietely bought the RTIC clone, and conducted a side by side test. Both were placed on my kitchen counter for 8 hours, to achieve a baseline temperature, then both were filled with eight 2" ice cubes, topped off with cold water, and set in the sun. The RTIC was almost immediately covered in condensation, which did not bode well. 6 hour later, the ice in the Yeti was at about 1" in size, while the ice in the RTIC was gone, and the water was warm. Also, the Yeti just feels much sturdier. The lid has a thick air chamber built into it, which the RTIC lacks, the metal body of the Yeti feels thicker, and the handle is quite a bit sturdier. Add the really cool magnetic docking cap, and Yeti is the clear winner. I gave the RTIC away.
