Stanley cups vs. Yeti cups: Which is better?
Stanley Cups are everywhere. So, you might have wondered what sets these best-selling beverage mugs apart from each other and from other similar models on the market. Yeti makes the Rambler Mug, which looks like a Stanley Cup, and is very easy to find in stock. I tried out both the Stanley The Quencher H2.0 Flowstate tumbler and the Yeti Rambler mug to see how similar the two really are.
The most viral Stanley Cup model is the 40-oz. Quencher H2.0 Flow State Tumbler. This really large drinking mug comes in an array of cheerful pastel and neutral colors. I got the cream color, which naturally sold out again on the Stanley site (although the other colors are still in stock). Yeti doesn’t have a 40 ounce mug, so I tried. 35 oz rambler mug I New Color Canopy Green, which departs from Stanley’s more muted tone. Stanley also has one 30-ounce tumbler with handle For sale, but the 35-ounce size is unique to Yeti.
Yeti’s 35-ounce rambler mugs are priced between Stanley’s 30- and 40-ounce tumblers, so they hit the same (splurge) price point. I will say, the quality matches the price on my first impression, even though I haven’t had a chance to test these mugs for several months yet.
The first thing I noticed is the large and comfortable handle of the Stanley Cup. You need a sturdy handle to carry a 40-ounce tumbler around, and a 35-ounce Yeti tumbler would also benefit from a larger, softer handle like the Stanley. Next comes the question of taste. I love the softer, more muted colors that come in Stanley Cups — but it’s not easy to get your hands on one of these pastel mugs. Yeti mugs come in both bright colors and neutrals, offering variety.
The lids of the two mugs also look different. The Stanley lid rotates to offer a straw opening, drink opening or full cover top. The Yeti tumbler only has a straw opening, but the thing is, with a cup this big, I wouldn’t want to drink without a straw in it anyway. And I probably won’t close the lid to throw it in the bag. But to each his own.
My verdict? If you can get your hands on Stanley Tumblr, I’d say do it. There is a good reason why people love them. I appreciate their soft colors and large handle.
But if you don’t fancy dealing with Stanley’s stock issues or want a mug that’s between the sizes of Stanley’s handle cups, you can pick up the Yeti Mug today.
