The Backstory

YETI invented the premium cooler category. Their initial niche following of hunters and fishers saw their $400 coolers as essential gear. We took their brand from a niche product with $25 million in sales, to a lifestyle brand with $800 million in sales, in just five years. This obsessively over-engineered product became a symbol for restlessness and the irresistible call of the wild.
