    The performance of a Yeti in a space-saving package.

    Ever come back from a long day in the mountains only to find your cooler full of melted ice, soggy sandwiches, and tepid soda? Well, if you haven't, we suggest you get the Yeti Tundra 50 Cooler before you do. Made from the same material as whitewater kayaks and insulated with two inches (and three in the lid) of Yeti's Permafrost insulation, the Tundra 50 Cooler will keep your food and beverage cold for days. The No Sweat design of the cooler prevents condensation from making your food soggy. Each side of the cooler has two handles with a rope haul and molded handle on either side. Unique to other Yeti coolers, the Tundra 50 sports a cube-style design, which minimizes the footprint, making it great for tailgating and economical in terms of space in the back of your truck or boat. Non-slip feet prevent the cooler from sliding around, and a bear-proof construction means ol' Bob the black bear will have to look for a free meal elsewhere.

    • Yeti cooler keeps its cool on long, warm trips
    • 50L capacity stores forty pounds of ice and thirty five cans
    • T-Rex latches secure the lid for reliable ice retention
    • Vortex drain system gets rid of any water that helps ice melt
    • Double haul handles ease carrying
    • Non-slip base keeps the cooler in place on the drive
    • Item #YET0003

    Yeti Tundra 50 Cooler

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

    The Yeti cooler will meet all of your needs. Amazingly durable and sturdy. Keeps everything cold for hours, and even days. A product you can rely on.

    Momma loves her Yeti

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    "This cooler is exactly what we needed for camping in the van. True for 5 days of coolness! Great for places where it is hard to find ice. Great purchase."

    Durable and Well Built

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Extremely durable and well built. The 50s square size makes it a good fit for road trips sitting comfortably in the backseat or cargo area without taking up too much space. Drain plug can be cross-threaded without realizing it causing the cooler to leak, but an easy thing to check once you know about it. Used it for a 5 day trip without having to replenish the ice.

    Good cooler! Could be GREAT

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this cooler. Obviously it is pricey and built with quality. People love and hate them, but the reason to love them is because if you are a real outdoorsman or roadtripper you value not having to add ice to your cooler every day. The real value here is the extended length of cooling it offers over cheap offerings. I think there is room for some innovation and features on these like a chain/chord to hold the drain plug, integrated bottle opener, and maybe a lighter insulating material (if available). Overall you will not regret this purchase if you are a true adventurer.

    YETI Coolers - Built to last

      YETI Coolers are clearly Engineered and Manufactured to a very high standard - this is my first cooler from YETI and I love it. The extra depth of the Tundra 50 is very useful. I wish they made the a version of the 35 with more depth. Keeps beverages icy cold! Very, very pleased with this purchase! No doubt it will last a lifetime.

      Heavy performance... and also just heavy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Is there anything better than a Yeti? Truly, there aren't very many brands that provide such consistent performance and durability - and this cooler is no exception. It looks cool, feels cool and basically just IS cool. It's also crazy heavy to haul around, even without being fully stocked with beer. For those cross-fitters out there, that might be a perk, but frankly, in my family it means this gets loaded in the car, unloaded at the camp site, and then stays put until we load up to go home. Luckily it's bear and critter proof so it's not too much of an issue (if the bears and critters have tried to invade, I wouldn't know - not a scratch on the thing). Overall, this is a great buy & I look forward to updating in about 50 years on its overall durability.

      Could it get any "cooler"

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This cooler has been awesome! Took it for it's first desert trip last week and everything stayed cold for the entirety of the trip. The drain on it works really well too, and the basket that holds foods elevated is a great way to avoid certain foods getting crushed or going smushy in the ice, like butter, berries, and cheese. After one desert trip though the white cooler is now very reddish-brown, even after scrubbing it clean, so maybe I should have picked a darker color option. Other than that, this is the highest functioning cooler I have ever owned.

      Too many good things to say!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It is difficult to say something about this cooler that hasn't already been touched on. it keeps your items so cold for an unreal amount of time. Incredibly durable. last cooler you'll ever own. Unless you order another Yeti in a different size. I went on a 3 night backpacking trip through Southern Utah This cooler was filled with beer and left in the car that was being shuttled to the end of the thru-hike. After 3 days were the temps got up to 90, there was still ice in the cooler! A cold beer at the end of that trip was incredible and would have been a pipedream with any other cooler. Worth every penny.

      I have learned while the cooler is certified bear-proof, one needs to latch carabiners in the two front corners to make it totally bear-proof.

      Perfect size

        The tunder 50 is the perfect size. I really like how its a deeper design vs some of the other Yeti coolers. As with all Yeti coolers they really do stay cold and keep ice for a much longer time than any other cooler i have used.

        Not your average cooler

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Yeti: "a large hairy creature resembling a human or bear, said to live in the highest part of the Himalayas." Well, it gets pretty darn cold up in the Himalayas, and the mythical Yeti seems to survive just fine- so the folks over at Yeti coolers aptly named their brand because this cooler will keep your stuff cool for hours... no joke. Take it on the boat, on the camping trip, to the tailgate, or even on your float trip, and you won't need to fret about your food and beverages getting warm. Not to bash Igloo, but this is not your average cooler.

        last cooler youll ever own

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        i have the 20, 45, 65 and 120 Yeti coolers. They are all amazing.

        Super thick insulation all over, including the lid, which is important. The lid is strong enough to stand on, and is textured for doing so. (They do that so you can stand on it and sight fish off a boat)

        Freezer style and high quality seal. Theyre replaceable, but Ive never had one go out. The rope handles can be easily and cheaply replaced, and they do wear out from time to time.

        They have holes in the corners to lock them with a Masterlock. Ok, thats important! If you ever leave these coolers in the bed of your truck, they will be stolen. Ive had one stolen. So, use the holes and lock them to your tie downs with something stout. Also, prevents people at tailgates from stealing your booze once youre in the game.

        Theyre totally worth it. And, they have a great warranty. To tell you how I got hooked on them, and to tell you how durable they are:

        I was in a truck in BFE with a few buddies. Tons of stuff in the bed for a camping trip, including an Igloo and a Yeti... We came around a corner, elk in the road. Driver swerves, off the road we go. Truck rolls. Thank gosh, all had on seatbelts. We get out. Lick our wounds. Gear is everywhere. The Igloo is in pieces... The Yeti never even OPENED, much less got destroyed. Been a fan ever since.

        Now, helpful hint... In the summer, to make ice last the longest possible - prep your cooler before filling. Use dry ice and cool the inside down. Then, fill the cooler and ice the contents down. It will add a day or two to the ice. Also, remember, the more full a cooler is, the easier it is to keep cool. So, pack it to the top with food, ice, beer, whatever. But, the fuller the better.

        You'll buy more than one.

        Not that that's a bad thing. I've had mine over a year now. What will stand out immediately is the weight of these coolers empty. They are solid and can take a real beating. The large amount of foam does seem to rob the interior of it's space for items. But the ability of this cooler to keep items cold more than makes up for it. We left ours in a hot car for 4 days at the beach and didn't have to put us in it until day 5. However, I sometimes leave the included basket out to increase storage space.

        The 50 was adequately sized to carry drinks and lunch for 3 anglers on a fly fishing raft day trip. It made a good casting platform too from the front of the raft. It's a good size for a couple to take car camping. Not too big for one to carry when full and two can handle it if it's really weighed down with ice and bottles.

        I also have a Roadie I take for solo day trips fly fishing.

        Will be getting a 125 or 160 soon to leave in the back of the pickup. With those 3 coolers I don't think I'll need another size.

        You'll buy more than one.
