    Puts your old cooler to shame.

    Stop dealing with cheap coolers that break, leak, and let you down at the worst possible times. The Yeti Tundra 45 Cooler is heavily insulated, UV-resistant, and damn-near bombproof, making it perfect for everything from days on the lake or beach to camping and hunting trips. This model is the ideal size for hauling enough wares for an individual or storing food for a small crew on weekend trips. Extreme insulation keeps ice frozen for days, and its bear-tested design is virtually indestructible, meaning it's up for any adventure.

    Between its extra-thick Fatwall design, PermaFrost insulation, and ColdLock gasket, you can be sure that you'll still have ice after a few days under the mid-summer sun. Rotomolded construction ensures it can withstand long hauls into the wilderness and survive falls from truck beds, and the T-Rex heavy-duty rubber latches, military-grade DoubleHaul handles, and NeverFail hinge system won't let you down no matter how tough the going gets. Barefoot non-slip feet keep the cooler from sliding around on boat decks and truck beds, and AnchorPoint tie-down slots allow extra security for rougher trips.

    • Burly build and incredible insulation for weekend trips
    • PermaFrost insulation holds ice for days

    It's a YETI!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This cooler keeps drinks and food cold with no problems even in the heat! The tundra 45 is perfect for weekend trips for a couple. It holds plenty of food and beverages. It is a bit heavy but that's why it is so rugged and dependable.

    Bomb Proof

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This thing is indestructible. I have had mine for a little while and it has survived some substantial drops. Great piece of gear for car camping as it can be a fridge and a camp chair. The price is high but you are paying for what you get.

    Perfect size for weekend warriors

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the second Yeti cooler I've purchased over the last few years. I previously purchased a 35l and it's been great, just a little limited on space for multi-day beverage and food necessities. The 45l adds an additional 10L to my capacity without consuming valuable space in the Jeep or the drift boat. The key to keeping ice long term is cooling the cooler down before your trip. When I've made a point to put ice in my coolers the night before a trip, we have no issue keeping ice for 3 or 4 days. THIS IS KEY in my experience. I apprecaite the bear-proof nature of these coolers as they sit around camp unattended periodically. The ability to put a lock through the corner of the cooler and lock it to a tree with a bicycle cable lock give us peace of mind while we're out enjoying activities all day. I prefer the tan colorway as it doesn't stand out amongst the trees but the limited editions colors are super cool as well. Having a couple of Yeti coolers might be overkill to some but it's a great way to keep moisture out of my cold food and keep the beverage cold in the other one. Lots of competitors out there but I'll stick with the Yeti name!

    AWESOMEEE!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Cooler is great. The day i got it, i put 2 8lb bags of ice in it...it lasted 8 days before it was all melted. Took it on a hunting trip, it was cold out side but no ice melt in the 4 days i was there at all. Cannot beat it. Was smaller than i thought but its still an awesome cooler!

    Awesome.

      got the tan color and am more than happy. the 45 is the perfect size for a weekend trip. if you're in between the 45 and 65 id recommend sizing up as ice can take up more space than expected because it just does not melt.

      They aren't #1 for no reason

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      What can I say, Yeti never disappoints. The 45 is the perfect size for a day or weekend trip. Ice last all weekend and keeps everything fresh and cold. Also, the rack that is included is super convenient.
      If you want your 6 pack and steaks to stay cold while looking like the manliest man out there then this is the perfect cooler

      Yeti 45- day tripper and weekend warrior

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The cost is definitely a bite, but it's so worth it! We use this for car camping and day trips and have been blown away at how well it keeps ice. It also has been used as a seat and table. In its down time it serves as a storage-coffee table in front of the couch at home!

      Super Insulated

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      As with all Yeti coolers, the insulation is amazing...keeping our food cold on an 800 mile trip with just basic ice blocks. This model is a little bulky and the actual space to store food is smaller than l was expecting, but still the best cooler I own.

      Raccoons

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I got this about a year ago. I wasnt sure it was worth the price, but i rolled with it. It has gone a few trips with us now, but most recently it showed its true colors. We were car camping and at the end of the night threw all the food in the cooler, shut it tight, and went to bed. We heard raccoons prowling around at night. The next morning our friends cooler was stuck in the bushes but ours hadn't budged one bit. Pretty happy

      Yeti Rocks it again

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love our new cooler. Just did a Colorado river trip and had cold beers and cocktail ice for all three nights. The trick is to get solid ice blocks. The ones you buy from the grocery store have a lot of air in them and melt faster. Either make your own or check your area for a supplier.

      Lives up to the hype!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      It's sturdy. Holds a lot. Latches tight. Has a spot to lock it if needed. Strong handles to carry it. The ice we put in there lasted almost all weekend without being too conscious of leaving it open or in the sunlight. Also it was hot, so I was very pleased!

      Expensive... should work better

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Wanted something mainly for car camping purposes, based on the reviews, thought this would do the trick. Packed with 12lbs of ice, some food and a couple drinks. It was 80 degrees during the day, within 24 hours, most of the ice melted, on day 2, all the ice was melted. We kept the cooler shut and in the shade- not sure what happened, but would've expected a little better performance for the price. Backcountry rep reached out and offered some advice, so we will try this again... UPDATE- tried it again with more ice and less food (also cooler temps outside), ice still partially melted in less than 24 hours. I wouldn't recommend spending the money

      Pricey But Worth It

        I've got a variety of rambler colsters, bottles, and lowballs that I love and decided it was finally time to upgrade my Coleman and spring for a cooler. As with all Yeti products, the price was hard to swallow but I trust that it will be a worthwhile long term investment. I bought mine in white though I see the argument for a more dirt friendly tan or blue. The included dry goods basket was a nice surprise.
