Design of the Yeti Tundra 110
When you first see the Tundra 110, you can automatically sense that the cooler is built to last. It has one of the sturdiest design you will find in coolers. The body is built through the rotomold process which is the same process used to build kayaks. The process ensures that the body of the cooler has no weak part that can easily lead to a break or leak. The walls are thick and nothing is glued together so the body is completely uniform and durable.
The hinge system on the Tundra is the best you will find. You will find no issues when you open and close the lid, it is a smooth process. A durable, rustproof rod connects the body to the lid. In order to ensure that the lid stays shut once closed, the cooler has T-REX lid latches. You just have to close down the latch once the lid is closed and not have to worry about it opening until you undo the latch. Yeti also provides you the option of securing the cooler with locks as it comes with integrated padlock ports. This is perfect if you plan on going into the wild for days, keeps the cooler safe from animals such as bears. Speaking of bears, the cooler can take a beating from one too. The durable design of the cooler has kept bear attacks in mind and no matter how much they toss and turn it, it will survive.
The Tundra 110 has quite a lot of space inside. Even with the thick walls, you can easily fit in 65 cans in the cooler with ice. It can store about 100 lbs. of ice without anything inside, so it is quite spacious. Wonderful for longer trips.
Performance of the Yeti Tundra 110
So we have established that the Yeti Tundra has a durable design, how does it fair when it comes to insulation. The insulation of the Tundra is on par with the top coolers. It has insulation of 2 inches inside the walls of the body which ensures that the cooler stays cool. Not only that, thanks to the T-REX lid latches, once the lid is closed it is quite secure and doesn’t allow for air to go in or out. It also has the ColdLock Gasket which completely seals the cooler once closed and traps the cold air inside. The cooler can easily retain ice for a week with no problem, making it a wonderful tool for your trips to the wild or sea.
The Tundra’s features don’t just stop there. It has a wonderful drainage system that makes it easy to drain the excess water out once you are done with it. It employs a screw in the drainage so you can partially unscrew it until most the water is out then drain it completely. It secures well, so it won’t leak in the car. The BearFoot feet of the cooler securely keep it in place once you have set it and make sure it doesn’t move around. The handles on each side are comfortable and allow you to move the cooler with ease. However, when it is completely full the cooler can weigh quite a lot and you may need help.

The Yeti Tundra 110 is an exceptional cooler that will provide you with everything you would want and more. The only downside to it is its price point. However, if you have the budget and want a cooler that will last then this is it.
