With the boom in popularity of stainless steel vacuum sealed tumbler cups, along came the highly coveted Yeti Rambler. The Yeti grew to become the most popular tumbler cup available in spite of its rather high price tag, and quickly sprouted copy-cat companies eagerly trying to get in on the market. 

So how do rivals of the Yeti Rambler actually stack up? In a test conducted by Al.com, three popular brands – Yeti, Orca, and Ozark – were put to the test. On a mid-90s hot Alabama day, three brave cups competed for the title of best tumbler on the market. 

The Yeti (costing around $40), the Orca Chaser (ranging in price from $30 to $35), and the Ozark Trail (coming in at the low price of $9.74) were among the competitors. The tumblers were filled with ice and then left outside in the blazing heat. After over twelve hours baking in the sun, the results were in. In a true underdog story, the Ozark Trail reigned champion! While the overall results were relatively equal, the Ozark Trail maintained the most ice by a small margin. 

While this is definitely not a true scientific test, the results could be valuable for anyone looking to save a few bucks while still keeping your margarita ice cold. You can watch the full test from start to finish in the video below and be sure to let us know if you found this video useful in the comments!
