This is quiet a shock to me...wonder what is behind this move?.......I own two of them, a 45 and 50 quarter....there has got to be a reason why they are doing this. We have a bunch of Yeti Coolers. Looks like I will have to put some tape over their logo....

I have been watching and waiting for this stock for the IPO been watching it since last hunting season....

Not that I'm a fan of Walmart, but their Ozark trail knockoffs of the yeti product (made by same supplier that yeti uses) appear to be on par at a third of the cost.

I received a notice from the NRA yesterday evening (email) that told of the Yeti move.  So I promptly found an e-mail address for Yeti Customer Service and wrote to them explaining to them my opinion of their move to abandon the NRA.  They probably wouldn't care about my individual opinion, then I added that there were more than 5 million NRA members that probably feel as I do. 
Got a e-mail response today when we got home from church.  Their response was thanking me for my reaching out to them and that office hours were Monday through Friday and that someone would contact me Monday.
My old big Igloo is still working after many years, may not be as efficient but they cured my fever for owning a status symbol.

Looks like everyone will either ditch their Yeti coolers and buy someone else cooler like Pelican or Grizzly....Also you know who this has and will hurt sales of these coolers? the company did not think about the consequences of their actions. Now, they have pigeon hold themselves to a yuppie market....so good old duct tape or Gorilla tape will go across the Yeti Logo on mine....I am ashamed of the company. Even if they apologized and retract their position, hunters will very upset with the company....

Anybody wants to buy my Yeti Coolers? I have a 45 and a 50 quart coolers

Sounds like they pulled an Under Armor stunt (alienating those who bought their product and made their business a success).

Bug fixer I'm placing my Shiti cooler stickers today, if I didn't have dollars invested I would throw the ones I have in the garbage. I certainly will steer everyone I see away from yeti. I have pulled all the metal labels off my coolers and Iím having this made to go next to yeti which is raised metal on my tumblers. I also sent a message to Yeti on instagram. I know it want have any affect but at least it made me feel a little better.

How cheap you wanna let one go for Bo?  How about if we film a little Tannerite vs Yeti video and post it on YouTube . . . . Oh wait, I suppose YouTube would just censor the video

Well I was scrolling through Instagram and came across the attached post from fly fisher Flip Pallet who is sponsored by yeti stating we as sportsman are jumping the gun. We should research the truth first before we act and that NRA was basically lying. So I did some research never found on yeti site the original letter to NRA. But did find what appears to me as damage control statement. So below for you to read and make up your on minds is what I found. I also responded to flips post with
