    I'm in the market for a 30 ounce yeti tumbler. A friend of mine has one and I was sold on it when he left one in the truck half full of coffee, and it was still steaming after a few hours of hunting in the cold.

    I have a bass pro gift card to use up, and bass pro carries yeti products, but I couldn't find the tumblers on their website. I don't care to get it somewhere else, I just thought it would be easy to use the gift card.

    Where is the best place to purchase one? I checked ebay and they have some there, but I always worry about fake knock offs on ebay.

    Bass Pro carried them in Cincy when we bought ours last year but who knows. Cabelas carries Yeti as well.

    Have several of their products, highly impressed.

    I've got a yeti 75 cooler and absolutely love it. I should also note that I'll probably have to buy online because I'm two hours from Cincy,Columbus, or Charleston.

    Our delta chapter is looking at the price point on RTIC, Orca & Pelican 75 qt coolers. I don't know if these 3 brands also make tumblers or not....

    6 month wait currently on RTIC. You pay up front, when they get enough orders for a shipment they make order from the manufacturer

    You wash yours ???? A little hot water and it's good to go.

    It is unreal how long ice last in them.

    Are the rtic coolers the real deal?

    I just bought two 30 oz tumblers from them.
    Seems like a good deal with free shipping

    RTIC coolers were started by a couple of guys that used to work for Yeti. They are the real deal, but you have to wait for them, they are currently about 6 months out on the delivery of their next shipment, I called them last week, they are hoping for sometime in June for delivery

    RTIC is currently getting sued by Yeti for patent infringement, trade dress infringement, and unfair competition. Case is still pending. I'd have to assume the courts have put a halt on their sales until the case is resolved, if it gets resolved. From what I have read there was a hearing in November, don't know what, if anything came of it.
