While Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year’s potlucks are a tasty way to share food and celebrate the holidays with family and friends, we all know how challenging it can be to transport your lovingly prepared goodies to your hosts’ home. Paper and plastic bags can rip, tupperware containers and casserole dishes often have no handles, and cloth totes do a very poor job of keeping drinks cold and your famous seven-layer dip at its optimal temperature.
Enter Yeti, with two durable solutions to these potluck problems. The Hopper M12 Backpack Soft Cooler ($380) and Hopper M15 Soft Cooler ($400) are the perfect holiday haulers, designed to fit food and wine bottles and hold up to 20 and 32 355 mL cans, respectively, of your favourite festive beverage, keeping whatever culinary contribution you wish to transport piping hot or frosty cold thanks to innovative insulation technology. They’re both leak-proof, comfortable and easy to open (and they stay open when you need them to), and can be paired with a number of Yeti accessories (for instance, a Rambler Bottle Sling or Sidekick Dry Gear Case) for even more hands-free holiday-ing. Plus, you can stash your keys, wallet and phone in the handy Kangaroo Pocket, strap your Hopper on your back or over your shoulder, and get go-go-going.
Thanks to Yeti, holiday potlucks have gone from hassle-filled to holly jolly! —Vita Daily
