Yeti gear is known for durability and quality craftsmanship—the over-engineered heft (and high price tag) is practically trademark. And on Wednesday, the brand announced a slew of new products that fit that bill: the Tocayo Daypack, Boomer Dog Bowl, Lowlands Blanket, and Rambler Stackable Pints. The dog bowl and stackable pints are logical extensions of Yeti’s Rambler line, but the blanket and daypack are new territory, signifying a continued lifestyle push from a brand that built itself on rugged coolers and drinkware.
Tocayo Daypack 26 ($250)
Yeti’s first backpack, the Panga, was an uninsulated, waterproof storm shelter for your gear, designed for those who want to carry their kit comfortably and safely on or around the water. The Tocayo, on the other hand, is designed for everyday carry. It’s not waterproof or insulated, though it’s still made with rugged materials and features intended to cross over from coffee shop to summit. The 1,000-denier nylon fabric is backed with 210-denier ripstop and a polyurethane coating, so it’s water resistant and tough enough to stave off punctures. A daisy chain around the top and sides provides numerous places to grab the pack or lash it down. Inside, however, the Tocayo has all the trappings of a commuter bag: padded laptop compartment, main compartment with a documents sleeve and mesh sundries pouch, internal water-bottle holders, and a quick-access external zippered pocket for small items.
Boomer Dog Bowl ($50)
Double-walled stainless steel means this dog dish is burly enough to handle whatever your adventures (or your dog) can throw at it. Dishwasher-safe, it holds eight cups of water or food. A non-slip coating on the bottom helps prevent it from sliding across the floor when your pup goes to town on dinner. At nearly two pounds, though, the Boomer is probably best left at home.
Lowlands Blanket ($200)
Puffy blankets are great, but fire embers, sharp rocks, and unexpected rain storms can ruin your cozy vibe. Waterproof, tear- and dirt-resistant, insulated with synthetic fill, and machine-washable, this adventure blanket is made to use no matter the terrain or conditions. Webbing loops on each corner mean you can anchor it to the ground like a picnic blanket, and the Lowlands’s TPU-coated polyester bottom and DWR-coated polyester-rayon upper doesn't need to be packed away when the rain starts. Lie on top of it at a concert, wrap yourself up around a campfire, or line the back seat of your car for your dog.
Rambler Stackable Pints ($50 for two)
Yeti took its popular, time-tested Rambler design and made it stackable. These pint glasses feature double-walled, vacuum-sealed insulation, and MagSlider lids that open and close to protect your brewski from spilling all over your camp kitchen. Along those lines, Yeti is also releasing its MagSlider lids in a new size to fit existing Rambler pint glasses, mugs, lowballs, and wine glasses (the standard lids have a drink opening that doesn’t close).
