YETI. YETI Rambler Half Gallon Reviewed

“Glacier sized for the toughest jobs.” That’s what is written on the label of the Yeti Rambler half gallon and it describes it very well. I knew that a half gallon thermos is very big, but when I unpacked it my reaction was “Holy macarony, we’ll eat soup as never before.” It takes more than a Lipton soup bag to fill the jug.


Our review of this product
8 / 10

The pros are:

  • It keeps warm, that’s for sure
  • The Yeti Rambler owner will be loved by his friends, as he will carry enough soup for all of them.
  • Very well made
  • Dishwasher safe

The cons are:

  • Heavy
  • Too big for an afternoon trip with your girl/boyfriend
  • It contains enough coffee to kill a horse with a heart attack

One morning, I filled the Rambler with soup and we went on a little ski hike on a modest, but beautiful, mountain in the Laurentides. We were lucky enough to have a backpack that was not full so we were able to squeeze the jug in it.

Once we were on top, I opened the YETI Rambler and served some cups of soup. It was still as hot as it was on the chalet counter. I wasn’t surprised because I knew that YETI products are very good quality and have a good reputation. Speaking of quality. You only have to hold the jug in your hands 1 second to feel how this product is well made. It’s heavy, but I think it’s fine since you can fill it with a lot of stuff and share with people. There’s even a magnet on top to stick the little cap when it’s time to have a sip. You’ll also never find your socks all wet in your bag because of a leaking container. This Rambler is more watertight than a Pampers diaper!

This jug is perfect for single-day trips between friends where you could share coffee, clam chowder or a big sangria. Or for a weekend with your girl/boyfriend when you want to eat hot potage every day. Take note that for these trips, you’ll have to bring camping cups or bowls and spoons if you don’t want to pass the jug as a peace pipe because the big cover doesn’t serve as a bowl.
