YETI Tundra 35 Cooler, Desert Tan
  • The YETI Tundra 35 is portable enough for one person to haul while still having an impressive carrying capacity of up to 20 cans with a recommended 2:1 ice-to-contents ratio
  • Ice stays ice thanks to up to 3 inches of PermaFrost Insulation and an extra thick FatWall design is certified Bear-Resistant
  • The Rotomolded Construction makes the Tundra armored to the core and virtually indestructible so wherever you decide to take it, this portable cooler’s sturdy construction will stand up to the rigors of the journey

The best things in life certainly aren’t free. That’s a fact. However, when it comes to outdoor gear, the price of an item is not always necessarily indicative of quality. Many times, major brands get away with overpricing, and there is much better value to be discovered. This is not the case with the Yeti Tundra; Yeti has pioneered a new method that many other brands are trying to emulate. Right now, their coolers are basically the most expensive on the market… They also happen to be the very best coolers on the market.

Typical Yeti Sturdiness

The Yeti Tundra is a sturdy cooler that is well-designed and amazingly constructed– it is difficult to imagine that there would be a more durable cooler.  The core of the cooler is made with just one piece of rotomolded plastic, its production is similar to how a kayak is made. This means that the cooler is almost unbreakable. The cold locks, lid latches, pressure-injected insulation, hinge system, interlock lid system, extra-thick walls, and sophisticated handle and drain technology are all trademarked by Yeti, and they really bring the cooler to the next level. Every single element of this cooler has been specifically designed to create the most satisfying cooler experience imaginable.


Not only is the design simple and stylish in aesthetic, but it functions like a dream. Ice is retained for longer than any other cooler that I have ever tested. It retained ice from 20% longer than any other that I know of, in fact.

If you are looking for something casual to take to picnics and soccer games, you might want something a little less expensive. But, if you are looking for a lifelong partner in crime that will follow you to the ends of the earth and survive the fall off the edge, there is no better cooler than this one. I think it would take a whole lot of effort, intention, and possibly weaponry to break this cooler, BUT, Yeti offers an extremely impressive 5-year warranty in the case that something does go wrong and it does break.

Conclusion Yeti Tundra

Do I recommend this cooler? Absolutely. If you are a camper, kayaker, or general outdoor enthusiast who is looking to invest in a long-term solution that will do its job better than anything else currently available, look no further than the Yeti Tundra, which is available in a variety of sizes to suit your needs. There are a lot of resources online that will teach you how to get the most out of the cooler in terms of storage and ice retention, and I recommend checking those out if you’re considering purchasing one of these, or if you already have.
