This Is the Perfect Travel Mug for Iced Coffee
My drinks stay ice cold (literally!) for hours.
When several friends waxed poetic to me about Yeti’s Rambler travel mug, they were met with skepticism. With so many travel mugs on the market (especially some ranking very high in customer satisfaction), I was wary that this one would be anything special. So, naturally, I picked one up and put it to the test.
After a few weeks of use, I can honestly say the hype around the Yeti Rambler Tumbler is definitely well-warranted.
In case you haven’t heard about it, here's a quick breakdown: Yeti, a Texas-based brand originally known for its line of premium coolers, reimagined the ultra-durable cooler design its fans know and love into a series of travel mugs. The Rambler tumbler, for example, is made of a kitchen-grade 18/8 stainless steel that Yeti claims is both puncture- and rust-resistant. The double-walled vacuum insulation keeps iced beverages cold and hot drinks warm, and the “No Sweat Design” keeps the tumbler from being covered in slippery beads of condensation. And accidents happen, but thanks to its magnetic lid closure, Yeti’s tumbler promises to keep liquids from spilling out.
With a 4.5/5 rating on the brand site, more than 1,900 positive reviews, and a “#1 Best Seller” badge on Amazon, the Rambler mug is a consistent crowd-pleaser.
Though I was initially hesitant about all the hype surrounding the Rambler, all my skepticism was left unfounded. Simply put, this tumbler works.
I prefer my coffee and tea iced year-round. Yes, even in the middle of winter. Not only is my iced tea particularly icy whenever I used the Rambler, but I’ve noticed the cubes are intact long after I finish consuming my beverage. Truthfully, I can’t even remember the last time I’ve had a beverage so cold. The Rambler is available in 20-ounce and 30-ounce vessels, both of which are more than enough room for a large cup of coffee (hot or cold) during your morning commute.
My only complaint about the mug is the lid. While the lid does a good job at keeping the contents of the mug spill-free, the sliding mouthpiece presses up against my nose and requires me to cock my head a certain way whenever I take a sip. It’s not ideal, but it’s a small price to pay for a perfectly cold beverage.
