Best Tumblers on the Market (that aren't YETI)
Can we just go ahead and get it out of the way that I am not hating on YETI at all today. I actually really like my YETI tumbler. It does everything it promises to do and passes every test I've put it through with flying colors. (I'm looking at you HOT Texas Summers!)
Drink Tumblers are one of the most versatile gifts on the market right now. Thanks to the science behind the double wall vacuum technology, stainless steel tumblers are everyone's dream cup. Your ice stays cold for days. Your coffee stays hot for hours. It is a very popular and apprciated gift choice by both men & women.
YETI gets enough press from their admiring fan club. But sometimes it’s okay to pass on the biggest brand name and opt for a lesser price tag when it means you’ll be getting the same quality product at a much lower price. If the name brand doesn't matter as much to you, here are our picks for the best YETI-alternative Tumblers that won’t break the bank.
1. The LOOP Tumbler
What can I say? We're partial to our own Engrave It Houston brand of tumblers. You'll only find this brand through us. The shape is nearly identical to the YETI brand cups but there is no branding or labeling on the LOOP cups. You can read more about the LOOP here. A 30oz tumbler (with engraving or powder coating included!!) will cost you $40.
We stock many different brands to make things easier on you!
2. RTIC 30oz Tumbler
This company completely blew YETI out of the water when it released their YETI like tumblers. Coming in at just 1/8" taller than the YETI and nearly an exact replica in design was pretty amazing, but their tagline drew in the most customers. "Half the price, & keeps the ice" - Yes, RTIC's price point started at $19.99 for a 30oz tumbler vs. $39.99 for a YETI. They have recently lowered their prices yet again to compete with other companies to $14.99 for a 30oz RTIC cup.
3. Hydro Flask
Hydro Flask is a brand that I don't think gets enough credit. They continue to impress me with thier BPA-free, 18/8 stainless steel water bottle and the many color options to choose from. Seriously, any color you could ever want. Warm liquids are piping hot for up to six hours and your cold liquids are ice-cold for up to 24 hours. A 24 oz bottle (pictured) will run you about $24.95
4. Ozark Trail 30oz Tumbler
The Ozark Trail brand is one of the most affordable tumblers on the market at just $9.47 for a 30oz. This is also known as "the walmart brand" of tumblers as you can buy them right off the walmart shelves. If you don’t care about a fancy brand name then THIS is the tumbler for you.
*BONUS PICK* - SMG Twisted Tumblers
These made the list because they are a twist on the YETI cup (pun totally intended). The design is slightly different than the other competitors on the market that all tend to mimic the YETI cup. This one will stand out against the others. The price point is exactly the same as a YETI at $39.99 for a 30oz tumbler.
So there you have it... Our picks for Stainless Steel Tumblers that rival the YETI brand in performance but not price. Do you have another brand that you admire?
