If you're familiar with Yeti products, you will know they make durable, high quality, bad a** coolers. This is my 3rd Yeti cooler. I have the Roadie and Tundra 50 as well. This was my first soft shell cooler and I went with the Flip 12 because I liked the look better than the other Hopper models.

I've only had this cooler for about two weeks but have taken it with me on an ATV trip through the mountains of West Virginia for its first real use. (I bought this cooler specifically for this trip). We used the tie downs (which also are used for the shoulder straps) to tie the Flip to the back of the ATV and they worked like a charm. The cooler was covered in mud, knocked around and completely soaked at times but held up like a champ. I was concerned that the rough ride would cause the cooler to lose its shape but that definitely wasn't the case. The trip lasted three days and we used it to keep our food cold. When we got back to the cars, the ice packs were still cold (not completely frozen) and the Flip definitely did its intended job. I will say I was anal about how often we opened the cooler and how long we let it stay open.

I went with the Tan/Blaze Orange color and I will say it looks even better with a little mud/use on it. If you plan on taking this cooler anywhere where its going to get dirty (which you 100% should be doing), I would think the Grey/Blue color wouldn't wear the dirt as well but that's just my opinion.

The Flip has an extremely aggressive zipper which they claim keeps the cooler leak proof. Honestly I can't speak to whether or not it is truly leak proof as I was using ice packs, but it does look up to the task. The first few uses were definitely tough to get the cooler open, but the zipper has a nice pull tab and it did seem to get easier after a few uses.

The Yeti logo on the back is covered in Velcro which is great. One thing I did with my Tundras was add a sticker here and there to make it unique and my own. The surface of the Flip (and all other Hoppers) wouldn't be ideal for stickers but a nice Maryland Flag Velcro patch did the trick for me.

I'm 100% a fan of Yeti products. Apart from the coolers, I own 2 tumblers, 2 Colsters, and have recently purchased the matching sidekick for my Flip. I bring my Yetis almost everywhere I can. Mountain weekends, car camping trips, road trips, family events and any other occasion I can find an excuse to pack them up with ice, throw them in back of the car, and take them along for another adventure. My friends are always gushing over my coolers and it's not an uncommon occurrence for someone to come over and ask me about how I like my Yeti. I still enjoy every time I get to use my Tundras and love my new Flip. Price always seems to be everyone issue when it comes to Yeti, but I have never once been disappointed with a purchase. A lot of coolers out there will keep your stuff cold, but a Yeti is the only one that can truly make you yourself feel cool ;)

Bought this for the brand name. It works ok, I kept a few waters and two beers cold in 100F temperatures for about 3 to 5 hours. At 7 hours in the heat the beer was starting to get warm. Not worth $250, more like $75.

Quick update, spent a week at the beach, this cooler really held up so I increased my rating to 4 stars. I still think it is over priced but does keep drinks cold (ice cold) for ~3 hours in the shade on the beach, air temperature was averaging 85-90F

I have no idea why some people aren’t impressed by what this cooler can do.

I put a relatively thin layer of ice over six beers and played in a golf tournament a few weeks ago on a 95 degree day. This cooler sat in the back in direct sunlight for about 75% of our time on the course.

Got to the last tee and went for my last beer. There was still ice in the cooler and the beer was freezing cold. Not much else to say.

Great product! Used this to transport fresh breastmilk from the Philippines to the US (total of 25 hour trip including layovers, flight time and delays) my two arctic ice packs at the bottom were still frozen solid when we arrived and milk was colder than chilled. My profreeze gel packs were also frozen solid except for the one on top which was still cold but no longer hard. Its pretty heavy and bulky but if you need to keep something cold for long periods of time, this is what you should get! Worth every cent!

On Saturday morning I placed several bottles of pre refrigerated soda and 10 lbs of ice in my new cooler. I opened the cooler 3-4 times on Saturday and Sunday and left it in my van overnight through Monday morning. Most of the ice has turned to water but there is still some ice left and the remaining sodas are colder than if they had been in the refrigerator. I am more than pleased.

The Flip 12 will hold 12 bottles of beer and then some plus enough ice to keep them cold for over a day. The Flip is the perfect cooler for small sports type cars and even fits on the luggage rack of motorcycle.

Follow instructions on pre-chilling the cooler and contents and this cooler will service you well, and perform as advertised. Construction and materials are first class start of the art. Impressive. Yes you can pay less money for a lesser product, but not one of this make and material. Top notch and extremely functional. Fulfills the promise that comes with the YETI name.if you want the best this is head and shoulders above any other soft cooler.

love this cooler. Lightweight compared to other Yeti coolers. I use it everyday for my waters. keeps everything cold....Love it!!!

This is a great cooler. Not as air tight and insulated as the tundra series, but I think still worth the money. It kept my drinks cold for three days while in a cabin. Lasts about 1 day in the outdoors

I recently traveled from NM to the east coast and wanted to take a variety of frozen meats and green chile. I filled the Yeti and left my house around 3:00 PM. I arrived at my destination around 3:00 PM the next day, having traveled via air. When I opened the cooler the meat and chile was still completely frozen. Disclaimer: I did cool the Yeti way down by putting it in the freezer overnight before I packed it with meat. This seems like a tough, well made product.
