Fake vs Real: YETI Rambler Stainless Steel Colster, Drink Koozie

yeti rambler, yeti colster, drink coozie

We were introduced to the prestigious, trendy, Cadillac of drink koozies called the Yeti, so we wanted to give you all the option of purchasing the real ones or the seemingly just as decent knock-offs.

You decide! We don’t judge. But people are buying these in droves, and we can see why. They’re amazeballs.

Wait. Is it a koozie or a koozie? I think by now it’s both.

What’s the difference? 

Seems to be just the actual authenticity of who makes the product. However, one cannot be perfectly sure without a bunch of scientific testing that we just don’t have enough yawns to do here. But check out these two reviews for fave vs real Yetis:

One reviewer of an authentic Yeti says, “I’m a sipper, not a guzzler so it’s important to me to be able to keep my drink cold over a long period of time, and the Colster fits the bill. It works wonderfully for both cans and bottles (not skinny bottles, they slip out of the top) and is very comfortable to hold. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to keep their drink cold and their hand warm.”

A fake Yeti reviewer says, “The AZ summer heat doesn’t even phase this thing, 110°+ daily up to 118° so far & his soda stays cold! One day he forgot his drink in his work truck during the hottest time of day for 45 minutes, naturally he assumed he’d need to throw it out but it was still cold. Yeti, we don’t know how you do it but Wow! With the money we’re saving on tossed out warm drinks we’re definitely ordering a few tumblers -Thanks for a great product!”

So again, you decide!

Some general YETI Colster product details from the authentic dealer: 

  • The YETI Colster, part of the Rambler series, represents the next evolution in can-insulating, hand-protecting technology. The Ramblers series of drinkware is the first line of YETIs that you can fit in your hand.
  • They are virtually indestructible and keep your drink as cold (or hot) as science allows. Keep your 12 oz beer or soda, can or bottle, cold for hours.
  • With 18/8 stainless steel construction, double-wall vacuum insulation and a No Sweat design that keeps condensation from forming, they’re perfect for any outdoor adventure.
  • All the powers of modern science were brought to bear on this drink insulator to keep the contents of your 12 oz can or bottle chilled, including double-wall vacuum insulation and a ThermoLock™ Gasket that locks in the cold.
  • The heavy-duty stainless steel walls are sweat-proof, so you can high-five with impunity while enjoying a tasty beverage.
  • Powder coating provides a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while providing an attractive finish. Powder coated products are more resistant to impact, moisture, chemicals, utraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues. It’s tough. And it looks great!
  • Powder coating provides an attractive finish that is far superior to the look of plain stainless steel. Its durability matched with YETI’s indestructibility make these tumblers perfect for the roughest commute or the rowdiest tailgate!
  • Days on the dock are made better with a rambler in hand. It’ll keep your dinnertime drink cool well past sundown!
  • All items are guaranteed to be authentic. Our colsters and tumblers are purchased exclusively through authorized YETI dealers and then customized through powder coating and hydro-dipping by The Twisted Cup to provide the most unique selection available anywhere.
  • Handwashing is recommended due to the custom finish.

They’re ‘perfect great’ for camping, glamping, tailgating, and more.
