Does It Work: Yeti Rambler Colster

CHAFFEE, MO (KFVS) -

Do you ever find yourself on a boat, in the woods or at a party with a warm drink? The Yeti Rambler Colster claims to be the key to solving the problem.

We turned to avid fisherwoman Kim Hubbard to put the Yeti Colster to the test. Hubbard can frequently be found on the water of Lake Twappity or elsewhere casting a line in search of the big one, or any fish – really.

“Every chance I get,” Hubbard said.

If nothing else, she reels in some peace and quiet.

“I just love it. It takes you away from the everyday stress of things and if you happen to get a big one it’s exciting,” said Hubbard.

Even when the fishing’s not so hot, Hubbard says it’s a challenge to keep her drink cold.

“When it’s 90 degrees out here, the sun’s blazing, the humidity is terrible,” Hubbard said. “If you haven’t got a decent koozie your drink gets hot in a half an hour.”

The Yeti Rambler Colster claims you’ll never have to suffer through another party with a cold hand and a warm beer. The Colster’s commercial states it is “over engineered” with double-wall, vacuum insulation to keep your drink frosty, while simultaneously keeping your fingers from becoming “frost bit” with a no-sweat design.

“That’s important,” said Hubbard.  “When you’re fishing things can get really mucky when your fingers get wet.”

It’s slightly unorthodox to bring a glass bottle on a boat, but we figured testing the Colster with a can would be just too easy. So we brought an ice-cold glass bottle of Dr. Pepper for our Does It Work test.

Hubbard takes her first sip and as expected – finds the soda plenty cold.

“Nice and refreshing,” said Hubbard.

Hubbard also brought along a 32-ounce gas station soda as a backup, but 30 minutes into our fishing trip it was already sweating.

“My poor Styrofoam cup,” said Hubbard. “It’s just drip, drip, dripping. And the soda’s all watered down.”

Meanwhile, the Colster was still chillin’.

“It (temperature) hasn’t changed,” said Hubbard.

After more than an hour, several swigs of Dr. Pepper and four lure switches later - Hubbard still didn’t get a bite. But at least, she says, every sip of her Dr. Pepper was indeed as cold as the first.

“It is as cold as when we started,” said Hubbard. “Unbelievable.”

Hubbard gives the Yeti Rambler Colster 5 stars on this Does It Work Test.
