YETI: Tundra Buying Guide

Insider Tips to purchasing your first YETI Tundra

Formerly used for commercial and hobby fishing or hunting sports, the YETI Tundra has evolved to a more compact size for the weekend warriors. From the campgrounds to the beach, the YETI Tundra has become a household name for dependable coolers and now in one more color, seafoam. The Seafoam Special Edition Tundra is available for a limited time only. Sea foam not your speed? No worries, they come in white, blue, and tan too with multiple size options. Since there's a ton of options we made a handy guide for you to learn about your YETI Tundra, how it can serve you, and how you can personalize it.


About YETI Coolers

YETIs are built with one-piece, seamless construction just like whitewater kayaks to take all kinds of abuse. So you can stand on it, sit on it, drop it and kick it, and never worry about it falling apart at the seams.

* YETI not responsible for broken toes.


T-Rex Latches

YETI's heavy duty rubber latches are made with patent pending technology (that doesn't protrude from the cooler) to keep them from falling off or breaking. There's nothing worse on a fishing trip than a cooler with a busted latch. So YETI made it durable and reliable for you.


Neverfail Hinge System

Busted hinges are an unnecessary evil. YETI uses a full-length, rustproof aluminum rod and a unique interlocking design to connect the lid to the body. Plus, molded-in hinge-stops prevent the hinge from ever breaking. Your days of lid-separation anxiety are over.


Permafrost Insulation

YETI Coolers use up to three inches of pressure©\injected commercial©\grade polyurethane foam in the walls and lid to make sure your ice stays ice. So whether you're using regular ice or dry ice, your drinks will stay colder, longer but your risk of frostbite will increase. Sorry fingers.


Coldlock Gasket

YETI's don't just close, they seal. Yeti's full frame, freezer quality gasket circles the length of the lid to lock heat out and seal cold air in. So even on the hottest days, your drinks stay frosty cool.


Fatwall Design

Thicker walls mean more room for insulation. YETI's FatWall design gives you up to two inches of PermaFrost insulation in the body for unmatched ice retention and dry ice compatibility. If it ain't cold, your ice is broken.

Lipgrip Handles

How do you make tough, unbreakable handles? Seamlessly mold them into the body of the cooler. YETI's recessed LipGrip Handles are designed to stay out of the way and make transporting 60©\pounds of deer meat seem like less of a chore.


Anchorpoint Tie-Down Slots

To keep your YETI from ending up in the water we've molded multi-purpose tie down slots into the body for easy mounting to your boat, trailer, or truck bed. A secured YETI makes for a secure YETI Owner.

YETIs are packed full of other crucial features to help you out in the wild. From easy draining to rubber feet that prevent sliding you can rest assured that we've thought of everything you'll need and then some.


Yeti Coolers Warranty

Yeti is confident you won't be able to put a dent in their coolers. A 500 lb gentleman couldn't. And neither could two grizzly bears. But this is a crazy world, and the seemingly impossible sometimes happens. So that you have the same confidence that they do in the durability of a YETI cooler, Yeti backs up this cooler with a 5-year warranty. To view their warranty, please click here.
