There aren’t many better experiences to have than sitting down on a camping trip or in your backyard on a summer evening, drinking a cold beer.

Keeping your beer on ice until you are ready to drink is a great way of making sure it is as cold as possible as it pours into your mouth. As soon as you remove your beer from the ice and open it, though, the coolness has already begun to fade, and if you’re not careful, warm beer will be in your near future.

Yeti dislike warm beer as much as the rest of us, so they have created the Yeti Rambler Colster to keep your cans and bottles ice-cold for longer.

In this article, we take a closer look at the Yeti Rambler Colster to help show you how cool it is and why you might want to think about adding one to your beer-drinking kit.

Our Score

The Yeti Rambler Colster does a very impressive job of keeping your drinks cold for longer than pretty much any other can cooler out there.

It is made with 18/8 stainless steel so will keep your beer at low temperatures for longer than the average beer drinker takes to finish off a can or bottle.

It should be pointed out at this point that the Yeti Colster can be quite selective when it comes to cans that fit within it - 12oz cans and bottles fit nicely inside but anything bigger won't!

Since the original release of the Rambler Colster, Yeti has acknowledged this issue and now has the Colster in 3 sizes - 12oz, 12oz slim, and 16oz for larger cans and bottles.

The Yeti Rambler Colster is as solid as it is good at keeping your favorite beverages cool so it is very well suited to outdoor life.

  • Made from 18/8 stainless steel, so is tough enough to withstand the odd knock, drop, and scrape
  • Double-wall vacuum insulation to make sure your beer stays cold from your first sip all the way through to your last sip
  • Prevents condensation for a no-sweat beer, keeping your hands dry as you drink

More on the Yeti Colster Can Cooler

What’s in the Box?

Like a lot of Yeti products, the Yeti Colster doesn’t come in a box – it is shipped with minimal packaging to help reduce waste which is always a good thing!

Along with the Rambler Colster itself, you will notice something that looks like a beer can inside the Colster upon arrival. Unfortunately, Yeti hasn’t treated you to a free beer, but this beer can-shaped container does contain your registration code for your warranty.

Although this might not sound too exciting, the extra container can always be used for the storage of some small fishing gear, making it an added bonus to your can cooler.


Yeti has extended the color options for the Rambler Colster, and you now have plenty of choices when it comes to making a statement with your can cooler.

Color options currently available for the Yeti Rambler Colster are stainless steel, sandstone pink, harvest red, highlands olive, sharptail taupe, Northwoods green, black, white, seafoam, navy, copper, and graphite.

Other color choices occasionally become available from third-party sellers, so you will definitely be able to find the color that best suits your personality.


As previously mentioned, the Yeti Rambler Colster is made using 18/8 stainless steel making it a very tough and durable can cooler.

The rubber gasket is also tough and doesn’t seem like it would fail at any point soon (or ever!)

Even the color is chip and crack proof making this one tough can cooler.


When it comes to keeping your beer cold, the Yeti Rambler Colster is extremely good at what it does.

The vacuum insulation creates an environment that can keep hold of the cold for much longer than you might expect.

If you like to take some time to enjoy your beer and not down it in one, then this could be exactly what you need to keep your drink cold.

Ways to Use It

It may not be the most versatile of products that Yeti makes, but the Rambler Colster does come in handy when spending time out in the wild.

A cold drink can help make a camping trip, a fishing trip, kayaking, or even just some downtime in your yard even more enjoyable.

You can put your bottle or your can in the colster and then there is no rush to drink it to prevent it from becoming warm and less enjoyable.

It’s also handy if you are trying to do some DIY, some kit maintenance, or even some yard work and want a refreshing sip of a cold drink from time to time.

In simple terms, if you are in a situation where you won’t be downing your drinks in one gulp, then the Yeti Rambler Colster will help keep it cold while you focus on the other tasks at hand.

  • Dishwasher safe so you can keep your Rambler Colster clean with minimal effort
  • Keeps your hands and surfaces dry as the no-sweat design keeps the outside of your can cooler completely free from condensation
  • It holds your can or bottle securely so you have peace of mind that your well-deserved drink is safe
  • The tough stainless steel makes sure your bottles or cans are protected from knocks and scrapes
  • The Yeti Colster is a bit chunky so you might struggle to find a cup holder that can handle it.
  • Like cup holders, if you have smaller than average-sized hands, this can cooler might be a bit uncomfortable or awkward to hold
  • Only a select range of can fit inside the standard Colster, so if you have specific cold drinks you enjoy, the 12oz slim or the 16oz version may be a better choice for you


The majority of Yeti products come with a 3-year warranty that will make sure your gear stays in good shape and fully functioning for as long as possible.

The Yeti Rambler Colster actually comes with a longer 5-year warranty which is a very nice bonus seeing as it isn’t the cheapest can cooler out there.

At $24,99, you might expect to get a lot of extras and the extra couple of years on the warranty definitely makes it feel like a more long-term investment.

Yeti products are known for being tough, and they don’t malfunction very often. However, if anything does go wrong, Yeti are usually very good at sorting out any issues very quickly with little effort needed on your part.

Our Verdict

If you only like carrying an essential kit with you, the Yeti Rambler Colster probably isn’t going to be for you.

However, if you like enjoying cold drinks out in the wild, then this could be the item you have been looking for.

It is tough thanks to its stainless steel construction, it keeps your drinks cold, and your hands dry while you focus on enjoying your time in the great outdoors.

The Yeti Rambler Colster is very cool – we really like it, and we think you will too!
