Yeti Coolers, Tundra 210
The YETI Tundra 210 is nearly as deep as their largest cooler (the titanic Tundra 420), only in a smaller, cubed footprint. The Tundra 210 has beefy walls filled with two inches of insulation and a freezer-style gasket to keep whatever you’re hauling colder, longer. We saw many people at the show comfortably sit inside the cooler — no one was locked inside, thankfully.Christopher Balogh
