Our Score

Not only is the Yeti  30 oz Rambler great for keeping your drinks hot or cold, but it is also extremely tough.

Made from kitchen-grade 18/8 stainless steel, it can take a bit of a beating and still perform exactly as it was designed to do.

Like other Yeti products similar to the Rambler Tumbler, it uses double-wall vacuum insulation which can hold ice for up to 24 hours making it a great addition to your outdoor adventure kit.

The 30 oz capacity allows you to have a generous serving of coffee with you on your travels – if you are heading out into the wild during the colder months of the year then this is something you will really appreciate.

This is the largest of the Rambler Tumbler range but it still fits nicely into most cup holders so you can take it with you wherever you go.

  • Made from 18/8 stainless steel – it is puncture and rust-resistant
  • BPA free for added peace of mind that Yeti make sure their products are completely safe for their customers
  • A magnet on the lid provides an extra barrier for your beverages preventing heat or cold from escaping keeping your drinks hot or cold for much longer
Pros

  • Fits perfectly into most cupholders for convenience
  • No condensation or sweat forms on the outside of the tumbler so your hand stays dry while enjoying your drink

Yeti Rambler 30 oz Tumbler in Detail

Design

The Yeti Rambler Tumbler is a stylish yet extremely tough tumbler.

Its stainless steel construction means it can handle pretty much any environment so it is very much at home in the wild or in the office.

Yeti is one of the most well-known outdoor brands and they are famous for over-engineering all of their products.

The Rambler has a simple look to its design but it has been made to have extraordinary insulating powers.

Even the design and construction of the lid helps to make sure your hot coffee or your cold drink holds its temperature for far longer than it would in other travel mugs.

Colors

There is a large range of color choices for your Yeti Rambler Tumbler.

If you like to keep things plain and simple then you will like the black, stainless steel, and white color choices.

However, if you want to add a bit of personality to your tumbler then colors such as harvest red, sandstone pink, and seafoam are available too.

There are more than 10 colors to choose from so you are pretty much guaranteed to find one that best suits your style.

Features

Yeti Rambler has double-wall vacuum insulation which makes sure that your hot drinks stay hot and your cold drinks stay cold.

Considering the Rambler has been designed to hold your favorite beverages while you are out and about, it actually has quite a lot of features packed into its simple design.

We have already mentioned that it’s made from stainless steel making it extremely tough. This is an important point as, if you want to take your Yeti cup with you on your outdoor adventures, you don’t want to be worrying about it getting damaged.

The double-wall vacuum insulation makes sure that your hot drinks stay hot and your cold drinks stay cold. This insulation acts as a barrier between your beverage and the outside temperatures so your drink holds its temperature for longer.

Yeti has done all they can to make this travel mug as safe as possible. Both the tumbler and the lid are shatter-resistant so if you are somehow able to damage your tumbler, it won’t shatter and cause injury.

The magnet on the lid allows you to easily open and close the mug so you have easy access to your drink. This also acts as another layer of protection from the outside air.

Performance: ice/heat retention

The Yeti Rambler Tumbler is very good at holding ice and heat.

Its insulation means that, when fully packed with ice, it can keep ice frozen for up to 24 hours (and longer in some cases too!)

When it comes to hot beverages, you can be confident that if you make yourself a coffee in the morning and put it straight into your Yeti tumbler, it will still be hot well into the afternoon.

If you are more of an iced coffee drinker, then by pre-chilling your Rambler and using the right amount of ice, your cold drinks will be refreshingly chilled for you throughout your entire day.

Cleaning

Cleaning your Yeti Tumbler takes very little effort.

The main body of the Rambler can be rinsed and put straight into the dishwasher for cleaning.

The same goes for the lid but you should remove the rubber seal from the underside of the lid and place this in the dishwasher separately.

If you don’t have a dishwasher then you can simply clean your Yeti Rambler with hot soapy water and a sponge.

Yeti also have cleaning kits and cleaning tablets available for the times when you think your tumbler could do with a deep clean.

Warranty

We have always been a fan of Yeti’s warranty offerings.

When a brand is so confident in the design and construction of its products that it can offer a long warranty period, you know you are dealing with quality gear.

The 30 oz Yeti Rambler Tumbler comes with a 5-year warranty.

If it doesn’t perform as it should then Yeti will either fix or replace your tumbler at no cost to you.

It is worth mentioning at this point though that the warranty becomes invalid if you use your tumbler incorrectly so it is well worth reading the care instructions that come with your purchase before using it for the first time.

Reputation

Yeti has built a reputation for making products that are extremely tough, durable, and perform exactly as expected.

The 30 oz Yeti Rambler Tumbler is no different and certainly fits in with Yeti’s reputation.

While it is common knowledge that Yeti gear is not cheap, the products are always made to a high level of quality and they are tough enough to last for longer than other, more budget-friendly items.

Most experienced outdoor folk know about Yeti gear, lots have some of their own, and even more, want some.

Final Thoughts on Yeti Rambler 30oz Tumbler

The 30 oz Yeti Rambler Tumbler is a very well thought out insulated tumbler.

Whether you want to keep your cold drinks cold, your hot drinks hot, or you just want a durable cup to take out into the wild with you – the Yeti Rambler Tumbler fits the bill perfectly.

Made from kitchen-grade stainless steel and BPA-free, it is constructed with high levels of quality and we absolutely love it.

From its ice retaining powers to its magnetic lid, Yeti has created one awesome tumbler that you will want to be a part of your outdoor kit.
