One cooler to rule them all!

Camping, fishing, hiking, picnics; the YETI Hopper M30 Soft Cooler is a highly portable insulated pack built tough to help improve your outdoor experiences. With its ample storage, leakproof enclosure and comfortable shoulder strap, YETI has delivered another premium product for those who won’t settle for anything but the best.

The Hopper M30 cooler features a modern design with muted two-tone colours. The high-density fabric can resist tears, UV radiation and won’t collect mildew when filled with ice. Plus, the straps are sturdy enough that there’s no risk of breaks even if the Hopper is packed to the brim.

YETI equipped its latest generation soft cooler with an innovative Hyrdoshield closure that sees powerful magnets snap close to create a leak-resistant seal. It’s got some of the strongest magnets you’ll find on a consumer-grade product.

The lower portion of the hand straps feature a hitch point grid which is designed for you to attach YETI accessories like their tough bottle opener, but there’s potential here for you to make this space your own. The YETI Hopper M30 Soft Cooler is available in your choice of Charcoal, Aquifer Blue and King Crab colourways.

Key Features

The large storage capacity supports 12.7kg of ice or 20 cans of beer. Sure, other things could be kept cold, but we’ve covered the essentials.

YETI equipped the Hopper M30 with its patented Hydroshield Closure. The wide-mouth opening has ultra-strong magnets on each side to provide leak-free storage even if the soft cooler tips over.

The Coldcell insulation sees the interior lined with closed-cell foam renowned for its impressive capability for retaining the cold. Fill this bag with ice, and you can expect it to stay frozen for days on end.

Our Final Opinion on this Gadget

YETI possesses a strong reputation for producing some of the highest quality coolers and bags suited to rugged conditions. The Hopper M30 is more expensive than its contemporaries. However, you’d be hard done by finding another bag that stands toe-to-toe with the Hopper.
