YETI Hopper 30
The YETI® Hopper™ is the first 100% leakproof, portable cooler that’s built for the long haul and can keep ice for days. It’s reliable. It’s convenient. It’s easy to carry and designed for those on the go. It’s well-suited for days at the ranch, a BYOB dinner at The Salt Lick, or an afternoon on the water. Its DryHide™ Shell is puncture-resistant while the HydroLok™ Zipper is the best cooler zipper ever, period. The Hopper 30 can hold 24 cans (with the suggested 2:1 ice-to-contents ratio), six footlong subs, or four tubs of ice cream — a pretty impressive haul for just one cooler. But the Hopper’s not your ordinary soft-sided cooler — in fact, it’s anything but soft.
- Leakproof HydroLok™ Zipper technology was taken from survival suits, so you know it’s tough
- Tapered body makes it easy to haul from the lease to the lake
- Holds 30 lbs. of ice or 24 cans of your favorite beer, with the recommended 2:1 ice-to-contents ratio
- Liner is resistant to mildew for easy cleanup and storage
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.
