YETI is a household name and most of us know them for their high quality coolers and their thermoses that actually keep your coffee hot and your bevvies cold.  

But YETI has recently released the Yonder™ Water Bottle, and it’s definitely something a little different from their other products. As a lover of emotional support water bottles, I simply had to try it. Here are my takeaways. 

Durable. When I read that the water bottle was made of plastic, I thought hmmm another flimsy plastic bottle. But this bottle is durable and virtually shatterproof. I’ve accidentally dropped it on the gym floor, pavement, and many other surfaces (yes I know I’m clumsy) with not a dent or scratch. It’s also dishwasher safe, so that when I wash it (way less than I probably should), it’s an easy task. Plus, Yonder™ water bottles have a five year warranty so as long as you don’t intentionally run yours over with a car, you’re covered. 

Sealable top is a gamechanger. No one likes a leaky water bottle. You want to be able to throw it into your gym bag and not worry about all of your stuff getting wet. This one is sealed up tight with the two part Yonder™ Cap. Unscrew the top, which has a nice handle to carry the bottle, and drink from a controlled top that won’t dump water all over you when your hands are shaking after a tough workout. 

Still keeps your drink cold. I was skeptical that a plastic water bottle would keep my drinks cold quite like a stainless steel YETI, but somehow they made it happen. No, the ice won’t be intact six hours later like some of the other YETI products, but it’s way more insulated than any of my other plastic water bottles.  

The bottom line: My Yonder™ is getting frequent use! I bring it to the gym with me everyday and keep it on my desk during the day so I can stay hydrated. I have a 1 liter/34 oz bottle (the bigger size) which holds a lot of water. I would definitely recommend it to a friend!
