YETI Announces Hopper Two Soft-Sided Cooler

posted on February 7, 2017

YETI, recent recipient of an American Hunter Golden Bullseye Award for Gear of the Year, has announced that it will be debuting its new Hopper Two.

The Hopper Two is, as one might expect, an evolution of the company's popular Hopper line, which debuted in 2014. In March, YETI will release an updated version of the Hopper, which is due to sport the same HydroLok Zipper, but with a new design that's meant to enhance accessibility and increase thermal performance. An additional double-stitched handle on the back is supposed to make it even more portable.

“YETI sets the standard for the soft cooler category, and we’re constantly striving for improvement,” said Matt Reintjes, YETI CEO. “The extended zipper and extra wide opening raises the bar even higher for insulation, performance, and durability. The Hopper Two is the same rugged cooler, now with superior accessibility.”

The Hopper Two is also set to include a DryHide Shell and up to one and half inches of ColdCell insulation.

Three sizes and two color schemes will be available. Retail prices will range from $299.99 to $399.99.
