Yeti won our hearts (and, yeah, a good portion of the cash in our wallets) with its bear-proof, strongman-proof, everything-proof coolers. Then it made soft coolers and drinkware, which was more or less to be expected. Even its submersible duffels and overbuilt bucket and tote fit the mold. Earlier this year, when it announced the release of its Hondo Base Camp Chair though, Yeti proved that it was willing to take on more than just insulation and that it would do so by working with new materials. Today it confirmed that point again with the announcement of more new products, including a dog bowl and a camp blanket.
All of Yeti’s products can find use in everyday life but likely aren’t used on a daily basis. The new collection makes an aim for that and does so in typical Yeti fashion (read: it’s all very burly). The Lowlands Blanket is described as a waterproof yet comfortable blanket that repels dirt, vegetation and pet hair, making it sound ideal for outdoor gatherings and activities. The Boomer Dog Bowl offers some of the same technology that goes into Yeti drinkware to man’s best friend. It’s double-walled but not insulated, resists rust and has a grippy bottom that won’t slide around.
Yeti also has a new insulated pint glass, and an everyday backpack called the Tocayo, which is the only one of the new collection that’s available for purchase now. The Tocayo is Yeti’s first bag that isn’t made of its Thickskin laminated nylon, and it’s designed with organizational features for laptops and other essentials for daily use. We’ve been carrying the Tocayo for a few months now — look for a full review on the new backpack soon.
