Heading to the beach? Jealous. While there are bunch of really great YETI options to bring with you, there are really just 6 that are perfect for just about any beach experience with friends…or alone. Check them out.
By now you’ve probably noticed my obsession with just about all things YETI. From their new colors of the season, to newly released items, and even the once-in-a-blue-moon sale – I’ve covered it all, unapologetically.
This time around I’m combing two of my favorite things in life; YETI and the beach, which sounds like a new show coming to CBS this fall. Nevertheless, if you are heading out to the beach for the day (or the weekend) besides making sure you have your sunscreen and shades, it’s important that you have the right cooler with you.
I’m going to get a lot of slack for this, but the coolers with wheels (for me) don’t always work well on the sand. For me they do wheel when the sand is a bit packed down/wet, but when it’s fluffy and hot as all hell, I have a tough time wheeling it to my destination. With that said, I decided to recommend some top-notch YETI cooler picks without wheels that’ll hit a variety of different beach-life scenarios.
Whether you’re heading out with a bunch of friends and need a place to stash your beer and wine, are going off for a zen moment alone and plan on bringing your lunch, or even taking the kids with you and want to make sure they stay totally hydrated under the hot sun, I’ve come up with six different options perfect for all the situations.
Check out my top picks for some of the best YETI coolers to bring to the beach (so far) in 2022.
1. The YETI Roadie Hard Cooler
Probably my personal favorite, the Roadie 24 has an interior height of 13-inches so it’ll fit most wine bottles and soda bottles standing up. Toss in some ice, pack in 6+ wine bottles, and you got yourself a party that’ll last all day. Speaking of which, this newly updated version is 10% lighter and holds 20% more than previous versions. Plus, the handle makes it easy to carry with you from your car down to your chair.
2. The HOPPER 24 Soft Cooler
Whenever I’m going to beach I always seem to have to carry all the chairs, plus my sunblock, plus my phone – so I’m usually not really that hands-free. This soft cooler is the perfect option for those of you who suffer like me because it can be worn as a backpack, keeping your hands totally free. Freedom!
Not only is this one waterproof and UV resistant, but it has Cold-Cell insulation that really will keep your drinks and/or food cold just about all day long. For real. Even with ice it can still hold a decent amount of drinks.
BEST FOR STAYING HYDRATED
3. The YETI Silo Water Cooler
If your goal is to keep everyone hydrated all day long then this is your best bet. It’ll keep your water nice and cold for hours on end and even has a convenient and easy to use spigot so you can keep sandy hands away from your drink. And this cooler is really no joke. It holds up to 6 gallons of water. That’s a lot of water…or other beverages you like to drink in bulk. You do you.
BEST FOR LUNCH
4. The Day-Trip Lunch Bag Cooler
If you’re heading out alone (good for you) and plan on having a little lunch, check out their new Day-Trip lunch bag. It’ll keep your cold food cold and your hot food, well, hot – for hours on end. Really. It’s lightweight. safe for fruit and other foods, easy to clean, can fold up when you’re done, and comes in a variety of fun colors.
Typically you can’t find a coupon to use on YETI, but at times they have promo codes and free shipping offers that can help bring the price down a bit.
BEST FOR WHITE CLAW
5. The Slim Can Colster
Nothing like having a cold hard seltzer with you as you relax under the sun. So, if you love your White Claw and the like, they’ve come out with a slim colster that your White Claw cans can drop right into. It’s dent and drop resistant, dishwasher safe and, more importantly, will keep your favorite bev nice and cold for so long. This one has about 12 different colors to choose from too.
BEST FOR WATER
6. The 64-oz Rambler
The perfect choice when you really want to stay hydrated with water. This 64-oz rambler bottle will keep things nice and icy cold for a while. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe and won’t peel or crack. They recommend not filling it with carbonated beverages especially if you’re using the chug cap. So, just keep this one for your run-of-the-mill water. It also comes in 5 other colors.
