Yeti Rambler surpasses more popular Hydro Flask water bottle

Unless you have been living under a rock, then you have definitely noticed the recent craze of the metal water bottle. You can’t go into a single class without seeing the bright colors of the now popular Hydro Flask water bottles.

However, what if I told you that there is another brand of water bottles that is actually very similar to the Hydros, but it exceeds the Hydro in all the important features?

The Yeti water bottle brand was founded in 2006 and has been making high-quality water bottles ever since. One of the company’s most popular lines is the Yeti Rambler Bottles. These bottles come in four different sizes, offering anywhere from an 18-oz bottle to a 64-oz bottle.

But what makes this line so great?

These bottles can keep your drink ice cold or steaming hot all day long.

The Yeti Rambler is able to keep your drink so insulated because of its double wall vacuum insulation system, which the company promises will keep your drink cold or hot until the last sip.

It also boasts a NoSweat technology, which prevents condensation while keeping your drink cool or hot throughout the day. The bottle is made out of kitchen-grade stainless steel, which is how the bottle keeps its liquid insulated while maintaining its clean look.

Additionally, you can also purchase different types of caps for the bottle. While the default cap that comes with the bottle is a simple screw on with a handle, you have the option to purchase a straw cap and also a chug cap.

When purchasing this bottle, you not only have a variety of sizes and caps from which to pick, but you also have a variety of colors from which to choose. From stainless steel to a bright aqua blue, the bottle has eight color offerings. On top of this, the company promises that the paint won’t chip from wear and tear.

While the Hydro Flask may come in a larger variety of colors compared to the Yeti, what makes the Yeti Ramblers excel past their competition is their durability. While the Hydro Flasks are notorious for how prone they are to denting, very rarely will you ever see a dented Yeti.

Both products come in at relatively the same price of $29.99 (the Hydro comes in at $29.95), and this may seem like a lot to spend on a water bottle. However, after purchasing one of these high-quality metal water bottles, you will never turn back to a plastic one. While Yeti’s website may lead consumers to believe that its bottles are made for the campers and hikers of the world, its products are practical for all aspects of life.

If you are still deciding on which product to choose, just think about all the possible mini heart attacks you will have to endure after dropping your newly purchased Hydro Flask if that’s the route you choose. Why not avoid all of that by purchasing the superior stainless steel bottle, the Yeti Rambler?
