I don't know if the Yeti is worth what it cost but a good insulated mug is worth it provided it keeps your coffee or hot drink hot.

I have one from the NRA that will keep my coffee hot until I am finished with it. But then when I am drinking hot coffee I drink it and don't let it sit around long enough to get cold.

Yes they are. I have those NRA ones also. I drink my coffee quickly. They don鈥檛 stay hot for very long. Wife drinks hers slowly. That's why I wanna upgrade

I was given a Yeti mug and after 20minutes of filling it with coffee, I took a sip and about spit it out because it was still hot.
After 20 minutes I'd have the coffee drank and be in the process of relieving myself.

That was "mountain coffee". Blacker than midnight and thick as heavy cream. You know, the good stuff that looks like you have a mouth full of Copenhagen from the coffee grounds stuck between your teeth. Already drank one cup, poured the rest in the mug. After the 20 minute SxS ride, that's when I took the sip. I was not expecting it to be that hot. :oops:

Do a little google searching for reviews and tests, I think you will see that for the price Yeti is a rip off. The Walmart Ozark Trails cup compares to the Yeti at a 1/4 or so of the price. I myself purchase Rtic products which are every bit as good as Yeti at 1/2 the price.

These fancy insulated cups are all well and fine until you finish the liquid in them and really need a drink but the ice has yet to melt or you would like to drink your hot drink but 2 hours later it's still hot enough to burn your lips off.

My friends who have RTIC stuff like it as well. The price point is great if you are ordering multiple online. I'd probably go that way if I was building a kit from scratch all at once.

I won't but anything Ozark anymore. I've been burnt by their junky products too many times. Coffee mugs may be different but I'm not giving them anymore of my money for such gear.

I use Sportsman's points or ACE credits for such purchases locally which justifies my cost. Keeps more money in town that way. Easier and about the same price as we fill or replace our kit with individual pieces.

And I do refuse to buy Yeti coolers at the MSRP. I've only bought local or regional roto-molded coolers at this point. I have zero loyalty to Yeti myself but for some reason I'm attached to their Lowball mug.

I used to be religiously a Hydroflask man, but my wife bought into the church of Stanley because of their tumblers. I also converted, because they鈥檙e dishwasher safe! Since I have all 3 I regularly compare, the Stanleys do as well as either the Hydro or the Yeti.

I was in the feed store picking up some feed and saw the insulated mugs on the shelf, so I looked at them and about crapped my Wranglers. :oops: :oops: They wanted $54 for a Yeti 16oz mug with the handle. What the.....Ya, I sure wouldn't dish out that kind of cash for a mug. Glad the one I have was a gift.
