    What are all the gun nuts going to do with their overpriced coolers now?
  • ScoutboatScoutboat Posts: 2,444 Captain
    I can't take it to that extreme.
    Folks who are interested in firearms are not necessarily gun nuts.
    I do agree that Yetis are overpriced.

    I bought RTIC there tumblers are great,  their cooler if built like them must be great as well I do not care about the name but how well they work.  My twins got the Walmart knockoffs as well there great however on the 20oz ones the Walmart ones have a tapered bottom don't fit into the car cup holder as well. But still a great product for a lot less.

    I do not own any yeti products.

    Do not care.

    I have some RTIC products and like them. One big cooler as an all purpose cooler and a small soft cooler I use for tent camping.

    I just googled RTIC and RTIC just posted up a pro-2nd Amendment meme on their Facebook page half an hour ago. So they're definitely going to try to capitalize on Yeti's blunder.

    I have been a fan of their products over the years. I bought many Yeti coolers over the years, if that's their decision, 'F' them, no more purchases from me.  I have raved about their product line for years but there's others out there.

    Yeti look alike are everywhere now. It nearly seems as if they wanted to build them the cheapest way possible and then the country they took the manufacturing decided to steal their intellectual property and manufacturing process.
        I don’t know if they are in China, but that’s who I’m looking at.
         I have a big yeti that came with my boat. It’s the only one I will ever own.

    WOW.  Your derision is palpable.  You must be a real hoot in person.

    As long as Costa, Salt Life, and one or more light bar manufacturers don't also officially separate themselves from the NRA, the bro truck owners should be able to maintain their sense of self esteem.

    Thanks.  It was supposed to be palpable.

    But what do you think I should do with the RTIC cooler I just received as a present???

    Societal attitudes towards the gun culture are clearly changing, and with that corporate attitudes are changing too.

    It's going to go the way of smoking, as far as non firearm related corporations attitudes go.

    Social attitudes (mainly based on emotive irrational perceptions) are becoming a big issue in order to keep a pragmatic world.

    Don't know what Yeti was thinking, but they will definitely see their sales drop.  

    Rtic should pick up the NRA foundation.

    It will hurt them. They used the NRA to build their name. I am sure the NRA cost Yeti a lot in (advertising) free products for the convention and local rallies. It may be they can't financially do it anymore. They should have come out with that, if that is the reason.  
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    Many won't care, but outdoorsman are the majority of their customers.  Many of them are probably more loyal to the NRA than a trendy cooler.

    Certainly the ratio to customers dropped will be higher than new customers.

    And according to some they are all run by idiots who will cost their companies untold business. Highly unlikely IMO.

    How the nra went from a safety and gun education group to the largest lobbyist for gun manufacturers and a shill for anti-common sense gun laws. Nasty, conniving people run this lobbyist pro gun agenda.



    In Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA, FRONTLINE goes inside the politics of America’s gun debate. Veteran FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk investigates the NRA, its political evolution and influence, and how it has consistently succeeded in defeating new gun control legislation.
