Welcome to another installment of Editor’s Review from FREESKIER. Each week our staff provides in-depth, honest reviews about the gear they’re testing on a weekly basis. Our goal? To point you towards the best brands and products on Earth so you can trust your equipment whole-heartedly and have as much fun in the mountains as possible. Read up on YETI’s Rambler one-gallon jug, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
Rambler one-gallon jug, by YETI
Every campsite needs water—lots of it. (Or lots of homemade vodka-lemonade, depending on your preference.) Grab yourself a Rambler one-gallon jug to keep your liquids icy-icy cold (or burning hot) for longer with one full inch of insulation on the cap and double-wall vacuum insulation around the bottle itself.
This jug is ideal if you’re heading to Moab for three days of climbing and camping: Fill the Rambler’s tank half-full with ice, add Kool-Aid mix, water and stir up some delicious hydration that’ll stay cool on the second and even third day—because this thing’s that good. Looking for something hot to eat during your two-week stint on the glacier? Cook up a batch of Grandma’s spicy chili, load it right from the CrockPot into the Rambler and have yourself a hot, multi-person feast days after your arrival.
What makes YETI stand out here is the brand’s attention to detail. The thoughtful MagCap system utilizes a magnet on the lid to hold the cap in place while the jug is in use. This behemoth container is also built with 18/8 stainless steel and is nearly indestructible (see video proof, below), so it’s primed for your next adventure into the backcountry. Purchase the Rambler jug mount, which easily screws into the bed of your pickup truck or onto your snowmobile, to ensure your jug is secure every time you hit the road.
