The construction of the Yeti Tundra 35 Cooler is carried to the extreme, because there are elite groups of outdoorsmen and adventurers who seek extremes. Desert sun has scorched these coolers. Blizzards have frozen them. Bears have gnawed on them. They have tumbled off trucks and cliffs. All the while, Tundra coolers have kept their cool. This is one ice chest that puts no conditions on reliability under the harshest conditions. There's no better choice than the Yeti 35 to keep food and drinks cold in a campsite, job site, pickup bed, or over your favorite fishing hole. One piece roto-molded UV polyethylene construction is extremely durable and a full length, self-stopping hinge can't hyper extend and break. You'll never buy another cooler! Replaceable nylon rope and textured grip handles make carrying easier. Padlock holes are molded into the cooler body and lid for added security. Dry goods rack included.

I researched and read reviews for 3 months because I was having an issue justifying spending this kind of money on a cooler. I am very glad I got it for my husband for Father's Day. We loaded it up with ice and drinks on Saturday and still had some ice in it on Monday. The drinks were still extremely cold. Bite the bullet and buy it, it is well worth it and saves repeated trips for ice on a long camping weekend.
Bought this cooler to put in the trunk of my car for road trips. Too bad. Yes, it is well made, but the thick walls mean very little storage relative to the outside dimensions. I was hoping that the technology available today would be better utilized too, since its also very heavy for its capacity. Id imagine their larger coolers for large trucks might have value, but Im still looking for a cooler.
I've owned a yeti for about 2 years, I bought a 65 first. I love this 35, it is the perfect size for small trips. I packed it on the back of my Wrangler, drove 14 hours in 90 degree weather and everything was still frozen when I arrived. I love the yeti ice instead of packing ice if I am taking things that I don't want to get wet. I highly recommend this cooler, it's a great investment.
Yeti Tundra 35: Leaks from the top. All Yeti coolers do. I have several other Yeti coolers and products that I'm very happy with, but I ran into issues with the Tundra 35. This cooler tipped over in my trunk, after I accelerated, and leaked all over. Other sizes are much larger and heavier and are not prone to tip over, but this size makes it vulnerable to do that unless its secured in place. The cooler was sealed and water leaked out of the lid. I was surprised and called Yeti to see if this was normal. They said it was completely normal--in fact it was designed to do that with it's "one way gasket." Liquid can go out, but apparently it cannot get in. This was designed like this to be used with dry ice so that the gases could escape. Makes sense, but I haven't read a comment anywhere warning of this leakage from the lid. Beware, it does, and it was designed to do that. At the price point of a Tundra 35, I would get a much cheaper brand as this unit was prone to tipping over after pressing down on the accelerator.
