Owner of multiple YETI coolers, multiple YETI cups and a few other brands of similarly constructed coolers. I a.ways chuckle when people say they aren’t worth the money and that the product is over-hyped. The brand is irrelevant to me, but the quality of the product speaks for itself.

Brand equals status, confidence, spirit of accomplishment, pride, etc. It sometimes also equals a statement of quality. Everyone on this board is guilty of it to some extent. Raise your hand if you have never ever, EVER paid more for something just because it was a certain brand...perhaps even because you expected it to be better based on the name. Maybe you paid $5K or $10K more to get that truck with the certain trim package that made you “feel better”. Maybe you buy your shoes from a department store instead of WalMart. Maybe you like Charmin UltraSoft instead of the commercial quality stuff you can get for a fraction of the price...which does the same job. But maybe you just haven’t YET decided to spend a little more on a camping chair.


My hand is raised.

I still don't understand how the Yeti insulated cup knows to keep hot things hot and cold things cold. exactly, How does it know?

Most of my family's camping is boondocking in the Mojave desert in the wintertime and it gets pretty chilly out there. Years ago we switched to Camping World's bulky Club Chairs and I'll never buy a different chair until I'm convinced of a revolutionary advance in chair technology. These things are comfortable and warm.

They only last about three years, but the "protection plan" that they upsell you on is good for two or three replacements (I forget).

I do use my 20 oz YETI mug for my coffee every day and swear by it.. I NORMALLY do get what you pay for, BUT . . . .

I am NOT in that $300 chair club.. I may splurge and spend $75 if DW really likes a chair.... but $300?? [emoticon]

Heck, we wait and buy our beach chairs from Costco as they are being sold off for the year at discount

I was with some folks this winter in Arizona that had them, they did look comfortable .

I bought a few Yeti large mugs and they do work good. I also bought the Walmart brand and they work equally as good

We bought the Contigo brand mugs from Costco for about $20 and they will keep coffee too hot to drink for hours. Fill it up at 6:00 and it's still hot at noon. We've paid more for mugs that were awful. Quality does not have to cost more.

Too many times "things" just help with showing status, some people find that very important. And also equate price with quality. A Rolex won't usually keep better time than a Timex, but it's a "ROLEX".

My coffee does not stay in my cup long enough to get cold.

I don't know, but, apparently unlike some of the posters, my Yeti cup knows how better than many others that I have tried.

My monogrammed Yeti Mug was a Christmas present and I love it; unfortunately it is too wide to fit many cup holders. I wonder if it fits the chair's cup holder.

Yeti is marketing genius. Their products are always displayed front and center and are seldom discounted. I would pay a lot for a supremely comfortable camp chair; probably not $300. The Yeti looks to be well made but I can't see it being super comfortable. I will give it a test drive when I see one displayed somewhere.
