Tundra® 45 Marine Cooler
Invest in a cooler that is ready for any adventure, anywhere, any time.
TheTundra® 45 is great for all around use; the smaller size is easy to stow aboard almost any boat. Perfect to pack a quick lunch for an afternoon on the water or a last minute run to the lake. With an interior dimension of 10 5/8"H x 9 3/8"W x 18 3/8"L this cooler will hold enough snacks and food for half a day or 28 cans of your favorite beverage—with a 2:1 ice ratio.
The Yeti Fatwall™ Design
Yeti Fatwall™ design provides 2" of seamless insulation on the walls and bottom and 3" of insulation on the lid for superior ice retention. Commercial grade polyurethane insulation, known as Permafrost™, is pressure injected into the walls and lid of the cooler and sealed to prevent water intrusion. Air is the enemy of any cooler; to prevent ambient air from entering the cooler with the lid closed, a freezer-style gasket and interlocking lid design create an impenetrable barrier.
Rugged from start
The extra-tough, roto-molded, one-piece, food-grade, UV resistant polyethylene body is designed for a lifetime. Integrated self-stopping hinges are molded into the body and lid to eliminate lid leashes and surface mounted butt hinges that are common sources of failures. Military-grade polyester rope with textured rubber grips let you carry a loaded cooler with confidence knowing the handles won’t break unexpectedly. Heavy duty T-handle latches are made using a patented technology for excellent strength and durability.
More Great Yeti Features
Tundra® coolers are packed with features anyone can appreciate. To drain a Yeti, a recess in the floor directs every last drop of water to the gasketed leak-proof drain. The drain plug features course threads that won’t be effected by a little sand or some fish scales. The included wire basket keeps sensitive items out of the icy waters and is coated for corrosion resistance. Molded into the body of the cooler are lashing loops that accept 1" webbing straps that will not interfere with access to the interior or effect the freezer-style seal. These loops can also be used to hold optional accessories such as drink or rod holders or locking systems to secure the cooler to the boat, truck bed or trailer. Bearfoot™ pads at each corner provide non-slip grip if you choose not to lash the cooler with straps. Molded into the lid are two holes for pad-locks to secure the cooler’s contents and give the cooler a bear-resistant container certification. The handles and heavy duty latches are replaceable should a grizzly or a teething Labrador puppy get to them.
Invest in your adventure
Whether you’re headed out on an epic journey or just a day on the water, don’t let a failed cooler be the story you bring back to civilization. Let the story go something like: “Standing on my Tundra®, I was able to cast far enough to get into a school of bone fish” or “Without our Yeti, we wouldn’t have been able to have Tri-Tip and cold beer on the 5th day out.”

The Yeti Story
Ever fallen through the lid of a cooler while standing on it to cast just a little further or while loading kayaks on your truck? Has a cooler ever dropped on your toe because the handle snapped under the load of albacore tuna? Does your cooler look a bit like Frankenstein with a mix of chandlery and home center hardware and a little duct tape? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you have something in common with the founders of Yeti.
Born out of frustration, the Yeti Tundra is the solution two outdoorsman brothers came up with to replace the fragile and inadequate coolers that were the norm. With a desire to spend more time fishing, in the wilderness and further away from power outlets and civilization the Seiders brothers developed a superior cooler and, as they put it “over engineered the hell out of it”. Design was purely focused on performance—not market studies or passing trends. The goal was to create an extremely durable cooler that has superior ice retention for extended periods of time.
Tundra coolers are made to be dragged aboard, kicked around, lashed to the deck and doused in saltwater then used as a casting platform while continuing to protect your prized catch or your week’s provisions. Though not typically an issue with boaters, the Tundra is strong enough to withstand an attack by a hungry grizzly should the situation present itself.
