My New Favorite Gear: The 26oz Yeti Tumbler

I’ve been looking for a container to transport my smoothies and cold drinks when I ride around SF. I stopped by REI this weekend and picked up a Yeti Tumbler, and it has become my new favorite piece of gear.

It reduces temperature change by using a vacuum between the metal layers. This is not a new concept by any means, but they seem to have perfected it.

Expensive, but it could be the last cup you ever use.

The Tumbler costs $40—which is expensive for a container—but it does its job. I thought I was going to use this exclusively for transporting drinks, but I may just use it as my daily cup. There’s a part of me that wants to get another one as a backup. Heh.

The things I love about the design:

  • The handle is simple and has no gimmicks. (Less things to break)
  • The build is stainless steel and feels durable.
  • The dimensions are comfortable to hold.
  • The wide opening makes it easy to drink and refill.

Anyway, if you know me, you know I love cold drinks. I had ice water in it from last night, and when I checked it this morning…it barely melted! ❄️
