Looks just like them, at half the price. Maybe worth looking into

Several posts on here about them. Don't know anything about the coolers but I have seen several test with the cups and Yeti wins all of them. I would buy one of the coolers though for the price if I didn't have to wait 6 months to get it.

Walmart now has a couple similar to Yeti's as well. One is the Ozark Trail brand, while the other is Mossy Oak.

My coworker has the Ozark Trail 20oz cup and we did a comparison side by side with my Yeti 20oz. They were pretty much identical with ice retention in our very non-professional test. We basically put the same amount of ice cubes and water in each, then set them in an office all day and didn't touch them. By the end of the day they had pretty much the same amount of ice as one another.

I saw the Mossy Oak version at walmart the other day, and the walls of the cup felt a lot thinner than the yeti, so I passed on it.

My co-worker bought one of the Ozark Trail's. Same ice retention as the Yeti for a fraction of the cost. As much as I despise WM may stop by there and pick one up.

I haven't seen any bumper stickers or t-shirts for them yet. That's the real test.

Janie, it's been hard to find the Ozark Trails around here. I asked a few workers at WM and they said they are gone as fast as they get put on the shelves.

If WM sells it, just order online and have it shipped to you or the store.

I have the RTIC. Can't speak for how it'll hold up long term, but it's every bit as heavy duty as a YETI from what I can tell and it holds ice forever. Took me close to 5 months to get though.

I've got the 65 QT Model. Very please with the quality and performance. And it's made in the USA. But back order wait time is several months.

I know that they are one of the companies that Yeti is sueing for trade dress violation. Most likely they will win. The suit is over the tumblers but it extends to the coolers for a few companies and RTIC is one of the main ones.
I also now that Walmart, Academy and couple other large retailers are named in the suit.

I always thought that yeti were made in dripping springs Texas. I could be wrong. Maybe headquarter?

There website say's they're made in China.

"Where are your coolers made?

Like other major competitors, the RTIC coolers are made in China in order to provide the best quality at the lowest price to you, the consumer. Just like many of the outdoor products you will buy at your favorite sporting goods store; overseas manufacturing is a cost effective way for retailers to provide an affordable product to its customers.""
