About the Product
One of the joys of a day trip is traveling light. The Hopper Flip in a new smaller size is perfect for keeping your food and drinks cold while out in the field.
The Hopper was built for those adventures where you want to grab your gear and go. It’s the original 100% leakproof, ice-for-days portable cooler. And because we used materials found in things like HazMat suits and whitewater rafts, it’s also tough as nails.

YETI Hopper Flip 8 Portable Cooler
  • This cooler sat in the back in direct sunlight for about 75% of our time on the course.
  • I purchased this cooler so I could safely transport frozen milk home from business trips for my baby.
  • Recently purchased the Hopper 12. I already had a Yeti Tundra in my boat, but wanted a smaller cooler to use when fishing alone or with just one other person.
  • This is a great cooler. Not as air tight and insulated as the tundra series, but I think still worth the money.
  • I really thought the cooler would keep everything just as cold as it was in the fridge for a really long time and was kind of disappointment to see things melting.
YETI Hopper Flip 12 Portable Cooler
  • This cooler is AMAZING! I have travelled several times in the last year, leaving my breastfeeding infant at home.
  • Bought this for my husband. It was his Father’s Day gift. He loves this and uses it everyday! Says it keeps his food cold even in 100 degree weather. HIGHLY recommend this and it’s worth the extra money compaired to other coolers.
  • Quality is great all around, coldness is comparable to other coolers I have used. Not sure if it is wroth the money though.
  • What a wonderful Yeti cooler! The Hopper is a great day cooler. Thank you.
  • Love it replaced my old school cooler with this new upgraded yeti. I take it everywhere with me.

What customers say about "Features"
YETI Hopper Flip 8 Portable Cooler
  • It kept my drinks cold for three days while in a cabin. Lasts about 1 day in the outdoors
  • Its a nice status, zipper nice, quality, but everyone probably knows an ENGEL cooler is cheaper $ and just as good in my opinion.
  • The YETI technology is dependable. Keeps cold for a lot longer than other coolers.
  • No problems with the zipper so far. When I received the Hopper, I put the included wax on the zipper, and opened and closed it about 20 times.
  • Zipper is extremely hard to use, but mostly it just doesn't keep cold things cold.
YETI Hopper Flip 12 Portable Cooler
  • The Yeti products are so good. This one keeps our drinks cold for a long time and it doesn't leak. The zipper is very secure.
  • Either way I’ve taken this cooler fishing and holds enough food/drinks for the whole day.
  • Works great, keeps things cool much longer than normal coolers
  • Ice keeps longer than other coolers. I like that it has a strap and handlle, but the zipper is hard to open and close.
  • It was roomy enough to fit my pump, pump parts, and several bottles and it kept my milk very cold for over 8 hours.
