A year ago (WOW the blog is a year old!!), I shared with you the Yeti Cup. I love our Yeti’s. But, like anyone else, I like to save some money. I have seen more and more “knock offs” to the Yeti cup, and decided to give some a try.
Russell and I were heading to Mexico with some friends, and wanted to order smaller cups to bring with us for all of the cocktails we were planning to drink, so I decided this was the time!
From Amazon, I ordered an Ozark, RTIC, and a Titan cup.
So full disclosure, my study is a bit flawed. My Yeti is the 30 ounce Tumbler, whereas the knockoffs are all 20 ounce tumblers (since those were the size that I wanted!).
I tried to even the playing field by measuring the ice that it took to fill the 20 ounce tumbler, and that’s the exact amount I put in the bigger one. Just under 2 cups of measured ice.
As you can see the shape of the RTIC and YETI are quite similar, and the Titan and Ozark are very similar. They all have the Name or logo across the front.
So according to YETI’s website their 20 ounce tumbler is more like the Titan than the 30 ounce tumbler in shape.
The test officially started at 7:15 am on Friday October 14.
I decided to take a picture after 5 hours, still looking good.
Here we are at 12 hours.
Next up 15 hours.
Final Results at 24 hours
I poured the water out of each and provide the number of ounces of water that was a result of the melting ice.
So there you have it, RTIC and Ozark tied and kept one more ounce of ice solid than Titan and Yeti which tied as well!
All in all, they were all very close! I mean really 1 ounce of water difference in a 24 hour period!
I paid $11.99 for the Titan
$13.99 for Ozark
$12.97 for the RTIC
$39.99 for Yeti, the same size Yeti as those tested would be $29.99
Those prices are a significant savings, plus I got free shipping on Amazon Prime and had them in less than 2 days!
