  • DryHide thermoplastic urethane shell with RF-welded seams is built similar to whitewater rafts, providing superior leakproof durability
  • HydroLok Zipper is the ultimate waterproof, airtight closure and is constructed like the zippers found in survival suits and hazmat gear; wide-mouth opening for easy access
  • Nearly indestructible nylon webbing straps and neoprene shoulder strap let you haul it anywhere
  • ColdCell insulation is 1 in. thick on the sides and 1.5 in. thick on the bottom, offering far superior insulation to ordinary soft coolers


Frustrated by coolers that couldn’t hold up to serious outdoor adventure, brothers Roy and Ryan Seider built their own to meet a universal need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great personal cooler I own a Hopper 20, a Roadie 20, and a Tundra 45. I bought a competitor's soft cooler the size of the Flip 12. That was a mistake, doesn't keep ice as long, and more importantly, it is NOT leak proof (although they claim it is). So my son in law is going to get the competitors product as a gift, and I got myself a Hopper 12 which I should have done to start with. Yeti's are well designed, made of durable tough materials, maybe most importantly, they perform EXACTLY as advertised. You can buy a cheaper cooler, but you cannot buy a better cooler. The FLIP 12 is a great personal sized cooler, or a cooler for a day trip hunting or fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect soft small cooler I bought this product last week and took it out this weekend to test it out. I filled it up with ice and put some water bottles in it and took it with me when I went to go play some Frisbee golf. I left it in my car (which is black so it gets very hot) while me and my friend played a couple of rounds. When I came back to get a drink none of the ice had melted. When I went out to my car this morning it still had a good amount of ice that had not melted yet. I have a 35 tundra which is great too, but for times when I don't need as big of a cooler the yeti flip is going to work great. Very happy with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A company that refreshing I purchased the original Hopper shortly after its release and while it worked flawlessly it was not truly user friendly. I lost a fair amount of skin off my knuckles reaching into it to retrieve anything. Problem solved. This redesign is perfect. I have used it now 4 times (I realize this is a small sample) post mountain bike rides and the product performed perfectly. I like how you can see exactly what's inside the cooler with a quick chance. It's easy to pack and so far nothing has come out crushed (post ride sandwiches). Yeti, thank you for listening to your customers and continuing to innovate. Now if you can only develop a user friendly drink top for your water bottles....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not meet expectations I bought this cooler because I've been looking for a smaller soft-sided cooler to bring to games and races. I will be returning it immediately. We filled it with drinks and ice the night before we left and when we were ready to leave in the morning, all of the ice was melted. it was in our kitchen and not out anywhere in the heat and I didn't expect that after only about 8 hours it was all melted. We filled it again for our trip found the ice to be melted when we got to our destination. This time the cooler was inside the truck with the AC on. It also leaked. Twice water (from melted Ice) came out of the zipper when we accidentally tipped it over. It's not worth the money and I will be taking it back tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did Just As Expected! Took it to the beach for a long weekend and it held up just fine. It does not hold ice as long as the hard sided coolers, but with a yeti ice pack and then a few scoops of ice it kept the drinks cold all day. I flipped it over, rolled it around and saw no leaks either! It was covered in sand so I hosed it off, unpacked it and called it a day. By the evening it had dried and showed no signs of wear at all, and still looked new out of the box. I am very satisfied and now am using it as a lunch box for work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Cooler I bought the yeti hopper 12 to sit behind the seat in my truck, but lo and behold it fits perfectly on the back of my Harley. my girlfriend and I took a motorcycle trip through the Colorado Rockies and we always had a cold beverage available anytime of the day. Along with Yeti Ice, two fit perfectly on top, we didn't have to add Ice until three days into our five day trip. That was with us opening and closing quite a few times during the day and having the cooler in the direct sun. Thanks Yeti for another great product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cooler for day or weekend trips! I bought this cooler for my boyfriend for his birthday so he could keep his special microbrews cold all day. Definitely spacious for a small cooler. Fits tall boys perfectly. Beers remained cold with 2 ice packs from Friday to Sunday with ice packs finally thawing on Sunday. My only complaint is that the top of the cooler doesn't stay open while you're trying to load it. It keeps flapping forward. Would also be nice to have a handle on the cover in case you don't want to use the shoulder strap. Shoulder strap is very comfortable, btw. Otherwise we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Flip is Perfect! Bought this last week and I'm delighted. It's great. Just wanted to tell everyone how the Flip fits the YETI Ice - perfectly! In the photo? That's a a big stack of 4-lb icepacks. It fits the 4-lb packs as shown....and the 2-lb packs side by side. So, I stacked about 5 or 6 4-lb packs in it, and three days later the lower ones were still frozen solid - the upper two were partially defrosted.So the Flip is a real Yeti, in every respect. I liked the original Hopper, but pouring ice into it after it was filled worked better with two people...very hard to squeeze the top open and dump a bag of ice in when you're solo. Also the zipper is great, but somewhat like an alligator's mouth. The Flip? Easy. Open up the top, fill it up, pour in ice - or stack up YETI Ice, zip it closed - done. I have the Hopper 20, the Roadie, the Tundra 50 and the Tundra 105....not to mention the Ramblers, Colsters and more.

Can you put dry ice in this? 

Asked by: Sportsfan22
According to the manual that came with mine they do not recommend the use of dry ice with the Hopper because the air tight zipper may not allow any of the gas from the sublimation to escape and can warp the materials.
