YETI Presents: The Tundra Tour

It's hard to believe that the Tundra hard cooler is ten years old and honestly, quickly through those years, YETI has quickly into nothing short of a juggernaut in the outdoor industry.  Along the way, YETI has invested tremendously in film and The Tundra Tour is a celebration of this and the wild stories that have been told. 

From the YETI presser...  "YETI®, a leading premium outdoor brand, is celebrating the ten year anniversary of its iconic Tundra cooler with a multi-stop film tour. This fall, YETI will be hitting cities across the nation, showcasing a selection of YETI Presents films, appearances from brand ambassadors, and raffles with exclusive YETI prizes.

 It all started in 2008, when YETI founders and brothers, Roy and Ryan Seiders, debuted the Tundra — a never-before-seen cooler born out of frustration. They were tired of handles breaking apart, latches snapping off, and lids caving in year after year. So, they decided to create a solution — to engineer a cooler that was strong enough to double as a casting platform, packed with powerful insulation to keep ice for days, and tough enough to be dropped out of a truck, dragged through the backcountry, withstand any weather, and still be game for more.

“We’re proud to be celebrating ten incredible years of the Tundra,” says YETI CEO, Matt Reintjes. “For the past decade, the Tundra has paved the way for all YETI products—rugged, dependable, built to last—and has become a trustworthy companion. As we hit the road this fall, our team is excited and honored to share stories from the wild, both new and old, with the YETI community across the nation.” Kicking off in Denver, CO and wrapping in the brand’s hometown of Austin, TX, all proceeds of The Tundra Tour will support local non-profit organizations that share YETI’s love for the outdoors."
