Hot Gear: Yeti Reinvents the Hopper Cooler

YETI®, a leading premium cooler and drinkware brand, is revamping its durable and portable soft-sided cooler line with the introduction of the YETI Hopper TWO – a 100-percent leakproof, tough-as-nails, soft cooler that’s anything but soft.

YETI redefined the premium soft cooler category in 2014 with the launch of the original Hopper. In March, YETI will release an updated version that sports the same 100-percent leakproof HydroLok Zipper with a new design to enhance accessibility and increase thermal performance. An additional double-stitched handle on the back makes for ultimate portability.

YETI Hopper Two has an upgraded zipper and all of the features that make this cooler so popular.

“YETI sets the standard for the soft cooler category, and we’re constantly striving for improvement,” says YETI CEO Matt Reintjes. “The extended zipper and extra wide opening raises the bar even higher for insulation, performance, and durability. The Hopper Two is the same rugged cooler, now with superior accessibility.”

The YETI Hopper Two’s over-engineered construction includes an extended 100% leakproof HydroLok Zipper, a puncture-and mildew-resistant DryHideTM Shell, and up to one and a half- inch thick ColdCell Insulation for improved ice and heat retention. The double-stitched side handles and removable shoulder strap offer comfortable and reliable carrying options, built for whatever adventure you take on. The YETI Hopper Two retains ice or heat for days and can withstand serious abuse in the field or on the water.

The HitchPoint Grid makes the Hopper Two compatible with MOLLE system accessories, including the YETI MOLLE Bottle Opener, YETI MOLLE Zinger, as well as the water-resistant SideKickTM Gear Case which is perfect for stashing keys, wallets, and extra gear.

The YETI Hopper Two will be available in three sizes – 20, 30, 40 – and two colors – Fog Gray and Field Tan – through authorized dealers and on yeti.com starting March 1, 2017. Retail prices range from $299.99 to $399.99.
