The YETI Rambler is an excellent alternative to the Yeti Classic. The 18-ounce size offers more variety and functionality than other models while still being able to keep you hydrated. It boasts a double-wall design, which keeps cold drinks cool for up to 24 hours without sweating or condensation forming outside your drink.

You’ll be thrilled to meet the YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle if you’re seeking a reusable daily water bottle that meets the Goldilocks standard for an everyday bottle. It’s somewhat more extensive than the regular disposable water bottle (16–16.9oz) but not excessively so. It’s the perfect size for your daily routine, whether you’re drinking water, tea, or coffee, and it maintains your beverage at the ideal temperature all day.

YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle On TableOn the table is a YETI Rambler 18oz bottle. YETI has made a name for itself in the cooler and drinkware industry, and you’ve undoubtedly seen their goods just about everWe’veh; we’ve been putting this YETI Rambler through its paces in and around for the last month, Detroit. And now that we’ve been using it regularly for a while, we’re ready to offer our impressions.

Usage & Features

The double-wall vacuum insulated stainless steel design of the YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle is one of its most notable characteristics. Hot liquids (like our daily dose of tea) stay hot and cold beverages stay cold because of the double-wall vacuum insulation. The stainless steel resists corrosion and doesn’t impart the buttery taste that other metal water bottles do. (I think we can all agree that’s a major plus.)

YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle BodyBody of the YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle. It’s also dishwasher safe. Toss this bottle in the dishwasher if it begins to smell bad. Of course, if you don’t have access to a dishwasher (or prefer to wash by hand), this thing’s broad mouth makes cleaning a breeze and no more squeezing your hand, rag, or sponge into a small mouth hole, especially if you don’t have a bottle brush. It’s simple to clean in any case.

It’s also rather hefty, weighing around a pound when empty (16.03oz, exact). If you fill it full, you’ll be looking at a little over two pounds. While this extra weight isn’t ideal for minimalist one-bag travel—every ounce matters when it comes to saving space and weight—not it’s a significant concern in everyday life. Going to work, hanging out at home, or maybe a relaxing afternoon trek are possibilities.

DuraCoat Powder Coating

The YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle is available in eight different hues at this review, including many with DuraCoatTM, such as the Black color we’ve been testing. DuraCoatTM is a powder coating that protects this bottle from damage such as scratches. In addition, it has a matte-like surface that gives it a classy but practical appearance. Especially when dressed in black.

We should point out that the DuraCoatTM is not grippy. It’s not so slick that it’ll slide through your fingers if you attempt to pick it up, but it’s also not so sticky that you’ll be clinging to it like Spiderman. This isn’t precisely positive or negative, but it’s something worth noting.

Logo on Bottle

In terms of branding, there are two YETI emblems on opposing sides of the bottle towards the bottom. The one on the left is debossed, while the one on the right is embossed. Both trademarks mix well on the stainless steel version—you’ll hardly notice them. The debossed logo is more visible on the powder-coated hues. It’s still a stainless steel cutaway, no matter what color DuraCoatTM you choose. It’s not a significant difference, but it’s apparent. That stated it doesn’t bother us. We like how simple it is as if it was imprinted into the bottle.

YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle With Chug Cap

YETI also has a No SweatTM Design, which prevents condensation on the exterior of the Rambler. In our testing, it has lived true to its name thus far. No sweat, no matter how hot or cold the drink is or how long we left it (maybe YETI could get into the deodorant game?).

YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle in Backpack Pocket

The YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle is on the tall and slender end of the bottle range we’ve evaluated in terms of design. However, because of its design, it will fit in most cup holders, and water bottle pockets on backpacks, making your commute a breeze.

It’s also relatively simple to topple, especially with the 5oz Cup Cap that we’ve been putting through its paces. The Cup Cap increases height and makes it top-heavy, which should be avoided.

Because this is a review on the Rambler bottle, we won’t go into too much detail regarding the Cup Cap (if you’re interested, check out our use notes). But, overall, we’ve loved working with this mix. The Chug Cap comes standard on the 18oz Rambler, allowing you to sip from the largemouth or the narrower aperture. It also incorporates a handle for carrying or attaching straight to your pack as required.

The YETI Rambler line’s ability to mix and match caps is a fantastic feature. You may pick from a variety of replaceable caps, which have come in helpful throughout our testing of different bottle sizes. In addition, we’ve put up a video that walks you through the Rambler line so you can see all of the bottle-and-cap options and select one (or two) that you like.

Refilling YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle with Water

The 18oz size, as we noted at the start of this article, is ideal for the daily grind. And it’s been entirely accurate in terms of testing. However, if the qualities of this bottle appeal to you but you need more or less volume, don’t fret. Other sizes of Rambler bottles are available from YETI and may be better suited to your needs. For example, the Rambler 12oz Bottle with HotShot Cap has proven to be a reliable everyday coffee cup. They also have 26oz and 36oz sizes if you’re genuinely seeking to hydrate.

Testing & Durability

We’ve been using The YETI 18oz Rambler Bottle every day for the last month, mainly with the 5oz Cup Cap and a lot of tea. We can make one kettle and use the Cup Cap to enjoy our tea all morning since the bottle’s 18oz volume matches the capacity of our teapot. We like to take our tea slowly around here, and the insulation helps to keep it warm. (We usually boil a kettle at about 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. and drink it till noon.) It does start to cool down in the afternoon, which is when we usually switch to water anyway—not a big deal, but worth noting.

YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle with 5oz Cup Cap Next to Tea Pot

The bottle’s height and slender design make it an ideal target for unintentional knocking over, so we suggest keeping the lid secured—especially near gadgets or critical papers. Again, you can rely on us. The Cup Cap exacerbates the problem since it is reasonably tall and adds a significant amount of weight to the top of the bottle. With various caps, your mileage may vary. However, the YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle is a tough cookie, with no dents or scrapes too far. As a result, grace is not a need for buying (cue the sigh of relief).
