YETI MagSlider Lid
Since I started carrying a YETI Rambler cup around with me a few months ago, I have found myself drinking way more water (and coffee) than I used to. The cup has pretty much became an extension to my hand.
Recently, they released a new lid that fixed my only complaint about the cup: the old lid’s drinking hole was big enough to allow my drink to splash out quite a bit. It was not too bad to have cold water splash on my back from the cup while hiking on a sunny day, but hot coffee splashing on my legs from driving over bumpy roads in town was much less fun.
The new version of the lid has a magnetic slider than can close to cover the drinking hole. The slider makes a satisfying click when you open or close it1 and pops off for easy cleaning. It is not leakproof, but I have not had any accidental splashes in the two weeks since I got mine2. All new sales of the 20 and 30oz Rambler come with the new lid (bonus: they come with cool stickers too).
If you have wanted to buy a YETI product but have not pulled the trigger, today is a great day to do so; they are donating 100% of the proceeds of all sales made today on yeti.com to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
So go buy a cup. Or better yet, get a cooler3. You will have purchased a well-designed product and helped someone out at the same time.
- It reminds me a bit of opening and closing the AirPods case. It has become my new way to fidget. ↩
- If you need something that won’t spill, they have version with screw-on lids that fit the bill. ↩
- If you want to buy a few coolers and need a place to send one, I can provide you with a good shipping address 😝. ↩
