So the other night I was at a Mule Deer Foundation event and Yeti was a major sponsor. I had swore off Yeti products after the NRA dust-up. In light of the shenanigans the NRA has been up to could Yeti have been justified?

My political vote seems to do little good , so I can and do vote with my wallet. Is it ok to purchase Yeti products? Any insight would be appreciated.

As far as I know Yetti pulled out of the NRA after a AR15 involved mass shooting. So fuggem if they don't support our constitutional rights and bow to this weeks political winds. There are better coolers cheaper that made by companies that support our constitution. See ORCA coolers.

Make your own decisions.

Personally I believe Yeti is way over price compared to all the other products that provide comparable performance aside from all the political hubub.


Maybe we're all happy.

Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

Yeti is as dead to me as Dick's Sporting Goods.

Thanks men ,
I forgot the details of the dust up. Pulling out cuz of AR15's is unforgivable.
The only reason I was considering purchasing a Yeti product is their soft side coolers seem to have by far the best reviews. I already have a 65 qt hardside Yeti, paid $150 for it and that is about what it is worth, so I agree with the over priced opinion.
Any other real world experience with a high quality soft side cooler?

This^^^. My RTIC is just as good and i bought it at half the price. The other $ 200 could go to a worthy cause such as Gabriel or the Second Amendment Foundation. Just a thought.

Over priced plastic. Would be interested in knowing what their profit margin is.

I bet it is huge. My buddies son was stationed in the Philippines for a bit with the Navy . He said Yeti 65's were $100 dollars! He got us several we had to pay $50 freight to get them here , hence my $150 Yeti
