When YETI launched its Hopper soft cooler just two-and-a-half years ago, outdoorsmen, and women, went nuts. For the first time in a long time, a brand revolutionized what most thought (a cooler) could never be revolutionized. But that’s why YETI is the industry leader when it comes to keeping your beverages and provisions cold. They took a simple idea and turned it on its head, almost a reinvention of the wheel, if you will. But with every great achievement there’s room for improvement, and YETI did just that with The Hopper Two.
New this February, The Hopper Two brings upgrades all original Hopper owners were looking for, especially in the area of loading and unloading the cooler. The original Hopper had a top zipper that was extremely good at keeping in cold air, thus keeping your contents as cold as possible. However, it was almost too good. The placement of the zipper made it somewhat difficult to not only move goods in and out, but also to see what you were carrying—and we all need to know how many beverages are left from yesterday’s outing, just in case we need to make another pitstop at the convenience store.
So what did YETI do? They re-invented the zipper by placing it on the front of the product so that the structure of the cooler itself wouldn’t impede you from loading and unloading your days supplies. A huge upgrade to such a minor thing you would never think of but ultimately enjoy every time you whip out the cooler for your next adventure. Along with an upgraded zipper, The Hopper Two boasts a variety of new handles, which makes hauling the Hopper even easier than before.
Hopper Two includes the same 100% leak-proof, tough-as-nails construction you’ve come to expect from YETI including: YETI’s durable DRYHIDE™ outer shell that is both puncture and abrasion resistant, as well as a thick layer of closed foam insulation to keep your contents either extremely cold, or extremely hot (depending on the contents). Also, the Hopper Two’s interior is mildew resistant and FDA-approved. Regardless of the adventure, the Hopper Two is guaranteed to keep your food and drinks safe, and more importantly, extremely cold.
All models available in Fog Grey/Tahoe Blue and Field Tan/Blaze Orange.
