Father's Day Yeti gift guide

Finding the perfect gift for dad is notoriously difficult. While most claim they have everything or – worse – they want nothing, it can be tough to choose a gift that honours the man whose best lessons were taught far from the lounge room. So, before you spend endless hours browsing the Internet, take a look at YETI®’s wide range of gear that will sort dad’s next boat trip.

Inspired by their father’s passion for the outdoors, YETI was founded by brothers Roy and Ryan Seiders in 2006 with a simple mission: build a cooler you could use every day if it existed. This saw the beginning of the Tundra®, and since then, YETI has expanded its product range to include a drinkware and bag range. Below are some outdoor gear options from the team at YETI that would make the perfect gift to give to the father figure in your life.

Tundra® 75 White                                                          

The ultimate gift for Dad that comes with a five-year warranty is the YETI signature Tundra outdoor cooler known for its durability and weather resistance along with impressive extended ice retention. Its rectangular body fits nicely under most leaning posts and can be used as a seat in front of most centre consoles. The unique rotomolding process creates a stable armour for Dad to stand on when out fishing. The Interlock™ Lid system creates a barrier to lock in the ideal temperature for hours or days. The Tundra 75 also has superior insulation with heat and ice retention from its Permafrost™ Insulation and Fat Wall™ design. Known for its virtually indestructible construction unlike other hard coolers, it will stand up to all weather conditions, including intense sun and heat exposure.


Hopper® M30 Soft Cooler

An essential for any trip, the leakproof Hopper® M30 Soft Cooler stores fishing gear and keeps any perishable goods fresh for the day. The soft cooler has a wide opening for easy loading and unloading and ensures any cold goods are kept that way for the day out. The Dryhide™ fabric shell material will also stand up against any punctures, mildew, and UV rays for those long boat trips. The bag closes almost on its own with YETI’s HydroShield™ Technology, which is a strip of ultra-strong magnets with two secure buckles to ensure it can withstand being tossed around on the boat supported by a three-year warranty.


Hopper® Flip 12 Soft Cooler                                       

Like the original Hopper, this Hopper Flip® 12 is built to withstand any environmental pressures on the water and is perfect for storing lunch or a couple of cold beverages to finish off the day. The compact, cubed body allows for convenient portability. The Hopper Flip 12 is in a league of its own from regular soft coolers as the closed-cell rubber foam keeps its contents fresh and cool. The tough Hydrolok™ zipper helps keep the water out and eliminates the potential for any leakages, backed by a three-year warranty.


20oz Travel Mug with Stronghold™ Lid                                                                

A can’t-go-wrong gift would be the 20oz Travel Mug with Stronghold Lid. This is the only YETI drinkware topped with the Rambler® Stronghold Lid – a leak-resistant, twist-on upgrade that’s created with unique dual-slider magnet technology. This adds a strong protective barrier to avoid any hot spills from sudden jolts of the boat. The mug’s double-wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks hot or cold for hours. Dad won’t need to worry about any potential damage to his Travel Mug, thanks to the 18/8 stainless steel also making the mug dishwasher safe for convenience along with a five-year warranty.


One Gallon Jug (3.7L)

A drinkware gift that goes beyond traditional hydration, the Rambler One Gallon Jug (3785ml) has double-wall vacuum insulation, one-inch lid insulation, and comes with a five-year warranty. This jug is built to store and keep beverages ice cold or steaming hot throughout the day no matter the conditions. It’s built with 18/8 sturdy stainless steel, making it dishwasher safe along with a durable handle designed for easy carry. The addition of the Magcap and dock secure the cap, so dad won’t lose it out on the boat.


Loadout™ Bucket (18.9L)

A gift that’s not to be underestimated is the ultra-durable LoadOut™ bucket perfect for loading, hauling, baling, and stepping. Designed for big catches, it can be easily carried around on and off the boat with the Heftyhauler™ Handle. The sturdy bucket isn’t built as a cooler; instead, it will store gear and hold just about anything, with a five-year warranty to back this. Built with Anchorpoint™ tie-down slots, the bucket can be safely secured down when not in use.
