Our Score

First things first, this is one tough jug! It is made from 18/8 stainless steel so it is puncture and rust-resistant.

Even when carrying, the stainless steel handle makes sure you can keep a tight grip on your favorite drink while the rubber grip on the handle makes things comfortable too.

Like all of the Rambler range, the Rambler One Gallon Jug uses double-wall vacuum insulation to keep your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold.

It even has one inch of insulation in the lid to make sure no hot or cold air escapes from its contents.

  • Dishwasher safe so there is the minimal effort required to keep your gallon jug clean and fresh
  • Made from kitchen-grade stainless steel so it is tough and durable. rust and puncture-resistant, and can take a beating while out in the wild
  • Fatlid insulation uses one inch of insulation in the lid of the jug to keep your cold and hot drinks at the ideal temperature for you

More on Yeti Gallon Jug Key Features


As always, Yeti has designed the Rambler One Gallon Jug to be a very tough and durable vessel for carrying your hot and cold drinks.

Looks wise, it has a simple and no-frills appearance.

It is available in a small range of colors including stainless steel, navy, and black.

A very clever (and very useful) feature that the One Gallon Jug has is its MagCap. The magnetic cap of the jug not only allows you to drink freely and comfortably without worrying about spillages, but it also attaches to the built-in slot/docking station so you never have to be concerned with misplacing the lid.

Yeti has designed the Rambler Jug to be completely leakproof which comes in extra handy if you are traveling on rough terrain and it gets thrown around in your bag or car.

Not only is it leakproof but it has also been designed to keep condensation and moisture away from the external surfaces of the jug. This prevents any moisture from forming and damaging other kits or surfaces the One Gallon Jug comes into contact with.

Specifications and Capacity

The Yeti Rambler One Gallon Jug is obviously a fairly large water jug.

It measures 15” × 6 3/8″ and weighs around 73 ounces when it is empty.

Unless you have a spacious kit bag, you might struggle to keep the jug with the rest of your kit. However, the handle on the lid of the jug makes things pretty simple when carrying it over short distances.

Capacity-wise, as the name suggests it can hold around a gallon of liquid or around 10 cans of beer, or around 16 cups of coffee – whichever way you look at it, it can hold a massive amount of fluid.

If you are thinking that this might be too big for your requirements, Yeti have you covered as well as they have a smaller version of the One Gallon Jug – the Yeti Rambler Half Gallon Jug.

This is almost identical to the One Gallon Jug in every way with the exception of its size and carrying capacity.

Construction and Materials

Like all Yeti products, the Yeti Rambler Gallon Jug has been constructed to extremely high standards and uses some very tough materials.

Kitchen-grade stainless steel is used for the main body of the jug which makes it able to deal with life in your truck bed, your kit bag, your tent, your work bag, or anywhere else you need to take it.

It has been designed to be as close to indestructible as possible and it seems that Yeti has done very well working towards this goal.

The One Gallon Jug can carry a huge amount of liquid and can take a bit of a beating without any of it leaking out or changing temperature.


The Yeti Rambler One Gallon Jug is a large, tough, leak-proof, and well-made product.

The Yeti Rambler Gallon Jug performs to the same high standards as the rest of the Yeti Rambler range.

It has very impressive ice retention levels as well as incredible abilities in keeping your hot liquid hot too.

You might struggle to find another jug that can keep your water and ice cold longer than the One Gallon Jug can. Its double-wall vacuum insulation holds the internal temperature extremely well and the tight seal of the lid adds an extra layer of protection from the hot or cold air outside.

The Yeti One Gallon Jug can comfortably keep your water ice cold for a whole day (and longer) and it can do the same for your hot drinks too.

If you are heading out into the wild during the summer and want a way to keep your precious water perfectly cold for a whole weekend of adventuring – the Rambler One Gallon Jug might be exactly what you are looking for.


We have spoken very highly of Yeti’s warranty offerings before and we will continue to do so.

The entire Rambler range comes with a five-year warranty and the Rambler One Gallon Jug fits into this too.

While the jug may be tough and durable, from time to time things can go wrong so having this long warranty period is reassuring that you can get any issues resolved quickly and easily.

This is a good point to mention the price of the Rambler One Gallon Jug – it’s $130 so is by no means a cheap addition to your outdoor gear.

The five-year warranty definitely helps in treating your purchase as an investment though as you can be confident that it will be at least five years before you have to pay out any money to replace or fix it (as long as you use it correctly and follow Yeti’s care instructions!)

Final Thoughts on the Yeti Gallon Jug

The Yeti Rambler One Gallon Jug is a large, tough, leak-proof, and well-made product.

Like all Yeti products, it comes with a pretty heavy price tag but you can’t argue with its top levels of performance when it comes to keeping your hot and cold drinks at just the right temperature no matter where you are.

If you are heading out on a multi-day adventure or an overnight stay for work, the Rambler One Gallon Jug will allow you to take a decent supply of your favorite hot or cold drink or even some hot food such as soup as well. 

This is another Yeti product that we absolutely love and we are confident you will feel the same.
