Really? A compact, portable cooler that will keep ice for days? Really.

Say goodbye to that leaky, flimsy, softside cooler you pick up at the drugstore on your way to the lake and won't even keep your favorite beverages cold until lunch. Say hello to a leakproof, tough-as-nails, carry-the-day soft cooler—Yeti's Hopper Flip 18. Just like the original Hopper™ series, the Hopper Flip 18 is made so you can grab it and go wherever your nose for adventure takes you. From a weekend exploring the Boundary Waters to that exhausting two-day soccer tournament, this personal cooler delivers full-size features (more on those below) that ensure your food and drinks are kept refreshingly cold. Plus, Yeti made it easier for you to stack and carry with other gear by giving it a cubed body.

So why is this cooler so much better than those previously mentioned run-of-the-mill models? You'll want to sit down (if you aren't already) and try to keep up:

HydroLok™ Zipper

The toughest, highest-performing, waterproof and leakproof cooler zipper in the world (according to Yeti, but we're inclined not to argue). Which, in combination with its wide-mouth opening, provides the Hopper Flip 18 with the kind of accessibility and visibility to its contents you usually only get with larger hard-sided coolers. And the T-handle zipper pull makes it easy to open your cooler—even while wearing gloves!

DryHide™ Shell

A high-density fabric that's waterproof and resistant to mildew, punctures and UV rays so you can use it in places where those off-priced coolers won't last. Like in the bottom of your canoe. Or strapped to your camel. This fabric is found in things like survival suits. It should withstand most of the hazards you can throw at it.

Inner Liner

The liner is made from an FDA-approved food-grade material that doesn't contain dyes or recycled plastic considered harmful to humans. So your brie won't come out tasting like an inflatable boat. Unless you don't like brie and believe it already tastes like an inflatable boat.

ColdCell™ Insulation

The closed-cell rubber foam used for insulation in the Hopper Flip 18 offers far superior cold-holding ability. If you use common sense measures (like not leaving the cooler open in direct sunlight for extended periods) you'll find it will keep your ice in a frozen state much longer than ordinary soft coolers.

HitchPoint™ Grid

Those vertical straps with the sewn-down loops on the front and back of your Hopper Flip 18 do serve a purpose. They allow you to attach a bevy of accessories like the MOLLE Zinger, the MOLLE Bottle Opener and the Sidekick (all sold separately so you can choose the ones you'll actually use), making your cooler even more versatile than it already is.

Tiedown Points

Two D-ring tiedown points provide multiple ways to secure your Hopper and attach the shoulder strap.

Double-Stitch Carry Handles

With a detachable shoulder strap and three reinforced handles, you’ve got options on how to make the load easier to carry.
