The YETI Tundra® 45 combines versatility with durability. This premium cooler is infused with that legendary YETI toughness — a durable rotomolded construction and up to two inches of PermaFrost™ Insulation. Which is to say it's built to last and will keep your contents ice-cold even in sweltering conditions, like a triple-digit summer day in central Texas. No bowing, cracking, or melting here.
Now look here. This Yeti cooler is no ordinary cooler...It’s an icemaker. This cooler is the best thing I have bought in my 26 years of being alive. This past 4th of July weekend me and my buddies were out East in New York. The weekend was a solid 80 degrees, a little humid and sunny for 4 days straight. This cooler was our lifeline that weekend. We were hauling to the beach, leaving it poolside, throwing it in the back of the car...It was all over the place. It was constantly getting refills of our adult beverages of choice...but never ice. If you put a 5lb bag of ice in there, expect about 10lb’s of ice after 48 hours or so.
Have been working at putting my Tundra 45 through the paces and it’s coming through every time. We took it with us camping in Michigan’s U.P. and it held our drinks cold all weekend long. Super well built. I’ve been using it as a bit of a mini fridge in my garage when I don’t have it out on the road with me. I like the size of the 45 as I can still manage to handle it by myself while it’s full. Anything bigger and I might have trouble. Like all of my Yeti products, this cooler is built to last.
I have taken this cooler on multiple 6 hour fishing trips. It kept the snacks and drinks cool the entire time even while sitting exposed to the hot Okinawa sun. I was surprised how well it remained planted even in some heavy seas without the need to be tied down.
Took the time to pre-chill the 45 before loading it with food and drinks for a long road trip. There was still ice on Wednesday from the Thursday prior. Couldn’t be happier with the cooler and can tell it’s going to last a long time.
Filled with ice and pre-chilled drinks....day 5 and still is 1/4 full of ice and cold drinks!! In an SUV in summer the whole time, Impressive. Only reason for 4 stars is bc around the drain plug is sweating and getting the floor wet (slightly. I have a rubber floor liner so isn't a big deal, but to anyone that has in a seat, ect this may be a problem.
Bought this one and the 65 for a camping trip in the hot and humid weather. Took the advice to pre-cool the cooler prior to loading. Both coolers were in the direct sunlight for periods of time at high sun as it moves across the camp. Contents remained ICE COLD! Other coolers our friends used did not stand up nearly as well. Their ice melted quickly. On average, I got a day and a half to two days of unmelted ice and cold contents. Great Product!
Bought this cooler about a month ago and took it on a week long camping trip. The weather was very hot yet the Yeti kept our drinks cold and always had ice in it. Was very impressed with how the product functioned. Will definitely be looking for another.
I bought this as a present for my hubbys birthday. It arrived in plenty of time and is exactly what we wanted size wise. We followed the suggestion of a “sacrificial” bag of ice to pre-cool and that bag hardly melted at all. While I understand the suggestion of block ice-I felt the loose ice actually kept things colder.
I bought this cooler for our family trip to the beach. This Tundra 45 held ice for 4 days! After seeing and experiencing this I'll definitely be purchasing another Yeti product. I highly recommend this product!
I bought this for my fiancé because he’s been wanting one forever. We’ve already used it multiple times and it holds up to every expectation. We were out at the beach all day and the ice didn’t even melt and it kept our drinks nice and cold! This is going to last us forever. Best purchase!!
This Yeti 45 is so economical,sturdy and made of the best quality on the market by far !! It even holds a lot of drinks and snacks !! That ice though....last for days regardless of the heat !! Thx,Yeti for supporting and believing in me !! GOD BLESS,ROB
As a full-time fishing guide on Florida’s Mosquito Lagoon I want nothing but the best for my clients! I have a brand new ice blue skiff and the ice blue Yeti looks great, keeps ice for days, and makes a great casting platform while sight fishing! PS I also purchased the whisper gray Sea Dek and would highly recommend it!
As a full time fishing guide and owner of several Yeti coolers I have come to realize that Yeti coolers are for sure the best built, most durable longest lasting cooler on the market. I have been on Yeti's pro staff since the very beginning and recently purchased the Tundra 45 for a new micro skiff made my East Cape Skiffs. I am using the Yeti on the outside as a seat, a standing platform for sight fishing and mainly a sturdy base that I have attached a carbon marine grab bar (see photos) to to hold on to when running the skiff standing. The interior (see pic) I have the yeti Tundra Divider to separate my drinks and snacks on one side and on the other side gallon tank of gas, rope, life jacket etc. The cage basket hold my keys, phone, and fly box. As you can see the 45 to me is more than just a cooler, it's a tool for me and my business!
I just bought my very first yeti. I’ve been purchasing yeti for all my family members and for prizes at our annual trail ride. I get so much praising from everyone for getting them a yeti product and I’m finally super excited to have my own. I can’t wait to bring this along wit me on this years trail ride. I know yeti is made tough so it’ll withstand all the many travels and uses I have for it.
Couldn’t be happier with this purchase. Took it on a camping weekend and everything stayed cold all weekend, even after sitting in a hot car. Barely had to change the ice. Durable and sturdy. Charcoal color is beautiful as well!
I got this for my boyfriend for his birthday. He loves it I love it its great. Definitely too big to take camping if you have it stuffed with beer and are walking a while but keeps food and drinks cold and fresh!
Took it on a car camping trip for 4 days in 95 degree heat. Pre-cooled it before loading with food and ice. Still had most of the ice in it at the end of the trip! The other cooler we brought for beverages had all its ice melt partway through the second day. The Yeti performed exactly how I hoped and kept our food safe and cool. Very happy with the purchase.
Haven't actually used it yet. I bought it for my girlfriend's birthday. It's a beautiful piece though. Yeah theyre expensive but man they're good looking coolers. It's a total vanity gift but she loves it. I love it. Go yeti.
My husband bought me the 45 in coral (completely amazing color) for my birthday this summer and I can't say enough about it! The color is fantastic but the quality is what I really need to highlight. We bring it on our pontoon for every weekend and the ice stays put for the entire weekend. I also brought it to a bachelorette weekend in the Cape, went back and forth from the beach each day and it stayed full of ice! It's incredible!
Got my 45 as a Christmas gift a few years back. I take this cooler hunting on 3-4 day trips and I toss a yeti 4lb ice in then all my groceries and top off with regular ice and it keeps everything cold for whole trip. Excellent Cooler!
