Shit, what did Yeti do? I can't keep up anymore with the news. Hate even looking half the time.REI removed Vista Outdoors products from their stores because Vista owns among numerous other brands, Savage firearms. I won’t spend any more money there or Dicks / Field & Stream. Yeti joined the list of people I don’t spend money with today
Yeah, Arcteryx makes some really top notch stuff. If using a lot, worth the money. Patagonia also good but I really love my Arcteryx gear. Very good design, materials, and execution.Expensive, but my Arcteryx stuff has worked really well. I shoot almost everyday, regardless of weather, and I wear either the dead bird, or some milsurp gortex. The milsurp is heavier, bulkier, noisier, but who cares if anything happens to it. Works well enough.
Yeti pulled support of the Friends of the NRA.I think I heard they bailed on their support for the NRA? Can someone confirm?
Agree Fuck Yeti! Been using Rtic coolers and tumblers, basically same product, 1/2 the price.https://www.rticcoolers.com/Yeti pulled support of the Friends of the NRA.
Screw their overpriced merchandise.
I didn’t spend my money their stuff anyway.
The company bought the employees soft side coolers for a safety bonus a couple of years ago.
I don’t like taking it out to the beach or anywhere like that, it’s a target for theft.
The owner of the company I work for had several large Yeti “Coffin Box” coolers stolen with several hundred pounds of fish in them from his house a couple of years ago. The thieves dumped out the fish and ice and pawned the coolers in Louisiana. They got caught and prosecuted.
I am with youAs a Guy who spent 21 years working for Uncle Sugar... doing work outside... My Humble opinion.... you spend a day outside... in the rain... you're gonna be wet.... I like good gear as much as the next guy, but I have my limits as to how much I will spend. I'll throw my hat in with the good Major... Issue Gortex is hard to beat for the price...
Mark up on clothing is horrible, regardless who make it, and it's all mostly sourced oversea's... I wait for massive sales and discounts
Like anything, knowing when to wear something in certain conditions, is more important then what you wear. Layers are key.
