In the event that Tundra above is far cooler than you need for the purpose of the YETI Roadie is much more practical and more manageable. It is ideal for day trips such as picnics, paddling or outdoor concert venues the 24 quart Roadie provides the quality of construction and remarkable ice retention YETI has become known for. It’s the smallest and lightest of sizes (12 pounds. 8 oz.) package. In spite of its tiny dimension, YETI didn’t skimp on features. You’ll get the robust rotomolded construction and sturdy rubber latches that can be shut and opened by one hand, and it’s compatible with the brand’s Tie Down Kit for securing it to the boat or on the bed of a truck or trailer. If the majority of your travels are done in a day then this YETI Roadie is an excellent choice.
It’s important to note this: the Roadie was upgraded a couple of seasons ago We believe the changes were beneficial. The shape is now more tall (it is able to fit regular bottle of wine upright) it is lighter, offers more capacity, better retention of ice, as well as an easier to use strap and handle system (we were not a fan of the original handle made of metal). We also like the new latches that are designed to be opened by only one hand. The new shape means that the Roadie is smaller in space within your vehicle. While it’s not difficult to believe the high-end quality and robust design of the YETI built rotomolded product The Roadie 24 realistically is a small-sized cooler that comes with a high cost.
