Sometimes, you want to bring a ton of drinks to keep a whole party running. Other times, you just want to pack enough to drink for yourself and a friend. The Yeti Hopper Flip 12 is designed for those days.
A soft-sided cooler, it comes with just enough room to hold 12 bottles of your favorite drinks, so you and a buddy can get drunk on six packs apiece while enjoying the warm weather down at the beach. Of course, it should also serve as a great way to keep sandwiches and other food warm, making it ideal for carrying to a picnic with a couple of friends in tow.
Unlike the rest of the Hopper line, the Yeti Hopper Flip 12 looks more like a cooler than a bag. That’s because they redesigned the opening, ditching the bag-like zippered top in favor of a flip-top lid like regular coolers. While that makes it harder to hide that you’re carrying chilled libations in tow (you like being sneaky), it should also make accessing any contents all that much easier, so you lose a little discretion in favor of convenience.
Since it’s designed for outdoor use, the cooler is extra-durable, with a puncture-resistant shell ensuring it won’t get damaged from normal use. Features include a HydroLok zipper, RF-welded seams for superior leak-proofing, and thick ColdCell foam insulation to ensure it keeps the contents cool (or hot) for a long time.
Slated for availability in August, the Yeti Hopper Flip 12 is priced at $280.
