Yeti Rambler and Colster Review – Kevin Emery: Every season, new fly fishing gear and tackle floods fly shops and the online world hoping to grasp the attention of anglers and customers. As a fly shop, we recognize it’s hard to differentiate between the plethora of angling gear choices. So, we put the gear in the hands of those that demand the most and the best, our WCA Fly Fishing Guides. We picked our top new products in the WCA Fly Shop for the 2016 Fishing Season. We placed those items in the hands of our guides to wear, use, cast, fish, abuse and enjoy! Simply put, it’s gear that is WCA Guide Tested.

A passionate outdoorsman and an incredibly talented photographer, WCA Guide Kevin Emery knows the needs and benefits of good gear that is high quality. From his home in the Tetons to his training and work in the South Pole, Kevin understands the value and necessity of staying hydrated, so the Yeti Rambler and Colster were a perfect fit.

“With forecast like these, I like the fact of knowing that my “hot” coffee will stay hot in the cool morning temperatures and that my afternoon “cold” drinks will stay sufficiently cold while the relentless sun beats down upon my sunscreen covered skin.

 

Yeti Rambler and Colster Review - Kevin Emery

There aren’t too many things in life that get under my skin more than cold coffee and watered down drinks that loose their appeal. The Rambler series insulated products by Yeti keep my smile filled with temperature appropriate liquids that fuel my day.

Rambler Tumblers are made with kitchen-grade 18/8 stainless steel and double-wall vacuum insulation. The result is a tough, hard wearing personal drink cooler that maintains ice twice as long as plastic tumblers and it works just as well for hot beverages. The lid that keeps your liquid in its place is easy to clean, shatter resistant and crystal clear so you know exactly how much of your drink you still have to look forward to. Dishwasher safe.

From personal experience with the Tumbler I can say that the large carrying capacity on the 30oz container is seriously large. In fact, I’d classify it as “super sized”.  When I want a lot of coffee I often will fill my favorite mug and bring along another thermos to keep more hot coffee within reach. Therefore, I have to bring two vessels in order to maintain an appropriate amount of caffeine on board for a long days work on the river. Not anymore. The 30oz Tumbler lets me get away with a single vessel that works extremely well as a thermos too. One area to note is the top-heavy container is easily tipped over. This vessel works best in a deeper cup holder to avoid accidental spillage.

The Yeti Colster is another great product that keeps 12oz cans as well as bottles sufficiently cold during blazing hot, sunny days. I can say that I have never had another “coozie” that compares in temperature regulation of my most precious flavored drinks and adult beverages as the Yeti Colster. My only real complaint is the weight of the Colster. I did find myself drinking my adult beverages quite a bit more quickly than I might have wanted to. The “in the hand” feel made me think that I always had a full 12oz left. When in fact, I was on my last remaining sip. Oh well. Just put another one in the Colster and make sure to have more on ice in your Yeti cooler.”
