What’s the Best Tumbler? Arctica vs. Yeti

When you live life on the go, convenience and practicality are all-important. You need to be able to get in and out of the house without wasting time and with as little frustration as possible. That’s where an insulated tumbler is invaluable.

We don’t know about you, but we can’t survive a busy morning without a cup of coffee or tea. It’s just not possible. But we also don’t have time to sit casually at our kitchen table for breakfast. Instead, we rush about our houses until the last possible minute, pour a pot of coffee into our tumbler, and then stumble our way to the car with barely enough time to fight traffic and make it into the office.

And when it comes to exploring on the weekends, we want our drinks to stay hot or cold no matter how long we’re out and about. And the only way to keep our drinks steaming hot or blistering cold is with a great beverage tumbler, but how do you choose the best one?

Go onto Amazon and type in “insulated tumbler” and you’ll be overwhelmed with thousands of results! It’s too much to sort through.

To make your life a little easier, we’re breaking down the Arctica Vacuum Insulated Tumbler and the Yeti Rambler.

Tumbler Features

Before you can choose the best tumbler for you, you need to know what you’re looking at. Below, we’ve outlined the key features of both the Arctica and the Yeti tumblers. 

Arctica Tumbler:

  • 30 ounces or 20 ounces
  • 18/8 stainless steel
  • BPA-free
  • Anti-slip rubber base
  • No sweat design
  • Vacuum insulated
  • Press-to-seal lid with easy removal
  • Dishwasher safe

Yeti Tumbler:

  • 20 ounces
  • 18/8 stainless steel
  • BPA-free
  • No sweat design
  • Double-wall vacuum insulation
  • Shatter-resistant lid
  • Dishwasher safe

Overall, both tumblers are fairly comparable, but there are a few key differences. The Arctica comes in multiple sizes from a 30-ounce size or 20 ounces. That’s important if you like to carry a large cup of coffee that will last throughout the morning, and not just enough to survive your car ride.

Both are made with BPA-free 18/8 stainless steel with vacuum insulation and no-sweat design, but only the Arctica is made with practicality in mind. Steel is slippery, but the Arctica includes an anti-slip base so you can set it on your car, by your computer, or in the fridge without worrying about it tipping over from a slick base. 

And there’s also a pretty big difference when it comes to the lids. While they’re both clear, only the Arctica uses a slide-lock drinking spout, so you’re not forced to remove the entire lid for just a sip, which will keep your drink hotter or colder for longer. On the other hand, the Yeti’s lid is a standard flip top, though you can buy a straw lid combo or pay extra for the slider lid. 


Now, the real question is, “How much will this cost me?” The impact on your wallet is what really matters, and we have good news. Not only will the Arctica not break the bank, it’s so affordable that you’ll wonder what took you so long.

While the Yeti costs $24.99 for their 20-ounce Rambler Tumbler, the Arctica 20-ounce is only $23.99. Even better, if you decide to upgrade to the 30-ounce version, you won’t pay double. In fact, you’ll only pay $4 more for a total of $27.99. That’s the price of just three Starbucks coffees. 

And with Arctica, there are no hidden fees, including shipping costs. We offer FREE SHIPPING within the Continental US on all orders over $20.00. That’s right. You buy either of our tumblers, and you get it delivered straight to your door at no additional cost. 

End Results 

In the end, when it comes to affordability and features, the Arctica Tumbler can’t be beaten. Let us keep your hot beverages hot and your cold beverages cold all day long. Our products come with a one-year full replacement warranty. So, sit back, relax, and get drinking!
