The YETI® Silo 6G is what a water cooler should be: a hardworking hydration station that keeps water cold for hours, tough enough to take a tumble, and built to deliver more than just drops at a time. With these critical qualities in mind, we called upon the legendary cold-holding power and rotomolded armor of the Tundra® and fused it with an ultra-strong spigot to create a remarkably insulated, quick-to-pour, easy-to-clean powerhouse of a water cooler.
Features: Extra-thick walls hold up to two inches of insulation for unmatched ice retention. Pressure-injected commercial-grade polyurethane foam in the walls and lid ensures all six gallons of water stay icy cold. Heavy-duty so your water cooler lid stays put. Two hinge pins and interlocking design prevent the hinge from ever breaking. A freezer-quality gasket circles the length of the lid to block out the heat and lock in the cold. Makes transporting your Silo seem even easier.
I’m a charter boat captain in Key West AKA the hottest place in the country! This cooler keeps my clients and I hydrated, refreshed, and focused to have a great day on the water. Best sports cooler I’ve owned.
I wasn’t planning on buying one of these but was not happy with the 3-4 water containers we use for camping. The more I thought about the Silo 6G the more I believed it was the right buy. I bought at campers village and looked it over. It’s the typical Yeti built construction. I took it home and cleaned it up and ran a 24 hour test. Next day was still cold and great water. Not the typical plastic jug taste. It wasn’t too heavy when filled with water but still manageable. I’m trying it out this weekend on a 2 day trip so excited not to be bringing a bought of containers and just this one.
We do a lot of off grid camping all over the country. We took the Yeti Silo on our trip out to Canyonlands in Utah. It kept our beverages nice and cool for our 3 day summer trip. Well recommended like other Yeti products. Fit well and was easy to use.
Owning many other Yeti products including a Tundra cooler, I knew I had to have the Silo 6G. I just needed to find an excuse to convince my wife we needed one. When she told me we were hosting a New Years Eve party this year and she needed a large container to hold bulk libations, I knew this was my prime opportunity! Last night we prepped 6 gallons of spiked punch and it fit perfectly! While we opted for no ice to prevent watering down our concoction, I have no doubt about ice retention.
There is one thing I wish Yeti would have included on the Silo 6G, a lock-out on the spigot. As soon as we got the Silo all filled up with our ingredients, what was the first thing my 4 year old did? She went over and pushed the button, causing boozy goodness to efficiently flow through the Surepour Spigot all down the front of her and all down the front of my white cabinets. Oh well, at least we still have 5.9 gallons to ring in the new year with. Yeti, once again, has knocked it out of the park!
I travel frequently for Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF tournaments and frequently camp off grid in preparation for tournaments. Many of these trips will last 3-4 days and in the heat of the summer water is essential. In years past I have used gallon jugs and or leaky water coolers. I'm looking forward to topping off my 1Gal Yeti Jug before heading out onto the water each morning with some ice cold H2O from the Silo. The added comfort of knowing it will not slide around, tip or spill while traveling down the road will allow me to focus on the tasks at hand.
Roto molded Water Cooler, The Silo makes me smile!
Using this for the first time while camping. Made as well as other YETI hard coolers. There are molded in handles, but not any other handles. Overall it is a great addition to other YETI products, keeps plenty of cold ice water for days.
