YETI Hopper 40
The YETI® Hopper™ 40 was designed to carry big food-and-beverage cargoes with ease. It has a carrying capacity of up to 36 cans with ice for longer excursions or larger groups. And it also has the same heavy-duty DryHide™ construction and leakproof HydroLok™ Zipper that make our soft-sided coolers anything but soft, plus up to 1.5 inches of ColdCell™ foam insulation to keep ice for days. Take the Hopper 40 with you to the bonfire, to the mountains, on your next hunting trip, or anytime you need to carry a larger load in a portable package.
- Can hold 40 lbs. of ice or 36 cold ones with recommended 2:1 ice-to-contents ratio
- Stores larger hauls for bigger groups
- DryHide™ Shell holds up to even the harshest conditions
- Leakproof HydroLok™ Zipper will keep the cold locked in while the heat stays out
About the Maker
GROWING UP, MY BROTHER AND I always had a passion for the outdoors. Hunting. Fishing. Traveling to outdoor industry trade shows with our teacher-turned-entrepreneur father. We were raised with an appreciation for wild game, unfamiliar territory and high quality gear.
But the coolers that were out there just weren't up to our outdoor adventures - the handles would break, the latches would snap off and the lids would cave-in. Not only was it a hassle to replace our coolers after each season, but these cheaply built, ordinary ice chests were limiting our good times. And that frustration led us to a solution.
In 2006 we founded YETI Coolers with a simple mission: build the cooler we'd use every day if it existed. One that was built for the serious outdoor enthusiast rather than for the mass discount retailers. One that could take the abuse we knew we'd put it through out in the field and on the water. One that simply wouldn't break. We decided early on that product innovation would come from necessity and firsthand experience - not from market research and data analysis. And we'd never sacrifice quality for a few extra bucks. Because having your cooler's lid cave-in when using it as a casting platform should never be part of anyone's fishing trip.
We're so glad that we weren't the only ones looking for a YETI. Today it is the cooler of choice for outdoor enthusiasts, pros, tailgaters and backyard barbeque kings. And that still gets us fired up. Ultimately, life is about having a good time doing what you love. And for us, that's being outdoors hunting whitetail, catching a tarpon on the fly and spending time with our families and buddies. We're wild at heart. So our coolers couldn't be anything less.
