1.0 out of 5 stars | Fake yeti "patorpending"
I've had this tumbler for a while, I never really liked it. It worked ok, but I thought that it just wasn't living up to the hype. Come to realize, it's not a real yeti tumbler. On the bottom, it says "patorpending visit yeti.com/patorpending." PAT OR PENDING. I'm laughing out loud. Anyways, don't waist your money!

5.0 out of 5 stars | It’s a receptacle for holding liquids!!!
Color: Green Northwoods
Thank you Yeti for inventing this amazing device. I was getting tired of lapping my Kool-Aid off the floor. - Appears to keep things cold, but I don’t usually keep drinks in the same cup for 24 hours in direct sunlight because I’m not an insane person. - Appears to not leak, but I’m proud to report that I haven’t had a problem keeping cups upright since about age 5, except for a brief period between age 19 and 22. - When I drink from this cup other men know I’m an alpha and women can detect that I’m good mating potential because of my obvious manliness. - On a serious note, the magnetic lid is very nice because it allows you to clean it properly. Yeti, you may have 1 extra caramel.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Not a YETI magslider lid
I love YETI, but the magslider lid that was promised is all clear and not a YETI lid. The lid is very cheaply made and does not stay closed. Returning item

1.0 out of 5 stars | An expensive, leaky failure. Premium price for subpar design.
I bought the 20 oz Rambler and the separate handle as a gift and am deeply regretting all of it. Yes it insulates the beverage for a while, but seriously, all double walled vacuum tumblers do that these days, and the truth is the cheaper Chinese knockoffs that cost half as much do it just as well as Yeti does. So I knew I would be paying extra for the fit and finish and for what I figured would be a better designed lid in the "new" MagSlider lid. The fit and finish is top notch, the powder Duracoat looks great and very durable, and the lid looked to be excellent as well. Looking closer, it seemed the MagSlider lid has a wonderful double rubber flange on it that seems perfect for sealing liquids inside and preventing messy accidents. Great so far! Everything seemed wonderful, except that in use, the MagSlider lid actually leaks even in the closed position. Worse yet, this doesn't even seem to be a defective product, just a simple design flaw, in the sense that they surprisingly failed to account for the fact that consumers would want their liquid containers to actually contain the liquid inside them and not allow them to leak out when in any position besides exactly vertical. Apparently, Yeti thinks that for $30 you should expect nothing more than gravity to keep your coffee from spilling out of your Rambler. So, why? Why would you design a premium priced tumbler that utterly FAILS at one of the simplest tasks you demand from a liquid container? Even the cheap Chinese knockoffs at a third of the price have being leakproof as a basic quality. What good are the premium materials and lovely powder coat Duracoat finish if this thing leaks like crazy when it inevitably falls over? I really don't understand why the crack Yeti design team couldn't design a better lid at this price point for something they market as suitable for an active outdoors life. This design isn't suitable for a boring morning highway commute to an office cubicle though, let alone a day of getting knocked around on a work site or a boat. I had a similar experience with the Yeti Colster, which is $25 and two pieces for the simple task of keeping a can cold. Meanwhile a Thermos can cooler is $5, one piece, weighs significantly less, and keeps a can exactly as cold as the vastly overdesigned Yeti Colster. It really feels like they don't know what they're doing down there at Yeti HQ. Honestly, how do you manage to serially OVERdesign products yet UNDERdesign them at the same time? I'm highly disappointed in this company, as a premium priced product they should not be failing the basics of everyday utility. The Rambler is supposed to be one of their signature products. Before this I was considering buying one of their extremely spendy coolers, but I've completely struck that from my mind. Between this tumbler/lid and the Colster they've fooled me twice now, but they won't be fooling me again. Goodbye Yeti!

2.0 out of 5 stars | Rust :(
I like it but it’s no more special than any other vacuum insulated tumber. I love the olive green color though. You’d think YETI would make a leak free lid, or at least the tiniest bit better than the lid without the magnet. Ok somehow a line of rust has shown up in my cup. I’ve had it for a very short period of time. I don’t know how this could have happened, i did try and scrub it out. ill need to exchange it 🙁

4.0 out of 5 stars | A very good travel mug
It's a fine insulated cup. First, the good: Materials appear to be of the advertised quality. The polycarbonate lid is crystal clear, glossy, and beautiful. The lid fits tightly. The sliding magnetic drinking hole cover has a tactilely pleasant action. The sliding cover, cleverly, has hidden air displacement porting that closes when the cover is closed. It keeps the lid clean-looking and presumably reduces leakage when the lid is closed. The lid's mold lines are thoughtfully laid out so that they do not interfere with the lens-like main window into the cup. It has a pleasant weight and fits comfortably in my hand. The powder coat provides adequate grip and is pleasant to touch. The replacable gasket seats on the sidewall of the lid rather than in a place where it could get pinched and leak. The gasket also has a double seal. And the could-be-better or disappointing: The "canyon red" is closer to a tomato red than the highly saturated and contrast-adjusted product photo suggests. I was expecting this cup to visually pop. I'd buy a different color given the chance. The steel is not as lustrous and smooth looking as it appears in product photos. It's duller, with a coarse brushed finish. The steel near the rolled top of the cup has some marring, though it isn't as noticable with the lid on. The top edge of the powder coating is noticably uneven. My tumbler came with a tiny piece of debris in the powder coat. Other notes: The sliding drinking-hole cover doesn't perfectly mate to the edge of the lid. There is a small but visible gap when the lid is closed, and the lid will leak if tipped over while closed. This may have been an intentional design choice to allow venting of vapor so the lid doesn't explode off when the container is full of hot liquid and shaken. Mine arrived with a small ding in the steel base. I'm not counting this against it, because I expect it'll get even more dinged up and survive, but if you're obsessive you might care. Overall, it's a high quality and thoughtfully designed insulated tumbler, but I was disappointed with some of the details that in my opinion didn't live up to the hype. I would buy it again.
