What could be better to accompany your $300 cooler than a $40 bucket! (The people at Yeti are GENIUS!)

For an extra $7 you can get three year protection.

That's a great investment!

The reviews, lol....

For ages I have been using five gallons buckets from Lowe's or Home depot when I went fishing. The problem is, I then had to also lug around my wallet to carry the extra $37 dollars that I didn't spend because I had not bought a YETI bucket. I also noticed that the bottled perrier water that I wash my truck with didn't have quite the same cleaning power when carried in a standard five gallon bucket as it does when carried in a YETI bucket. I must admit, my wife was unimpressed with this item until I won her over with the optional lid for only an additional $29.99.

It's a $5 bucket with a $34.99 sticker to put on your truck to show everyone you have a Yeti.

Oh wow. Where has this been all of my life? For years I've been using plain ole 5 gallon buckets to wash my car, take camping, and the like. But I've been sooooo embarrassed because, even though they worked great, THOSE buckets didn't reflect my personal style. With this YETI bucket, I'll be the envy of the campsite and neighborhood.

....


Every bucket I buy has holes so large that whatever I put it IMMIDATELY falls out. They are practically just hoops, or wide, short pipes. This bucket, though? No Holes! Not a single hole, except the one in the top, which is important because otherwise it would just be a cylinder.

5/5: appropriate number of holes.

If you are using a five gallon bucket to clean your truck, you are just putting the dirt from the first section back onto the last section you wash. Use a two gallon bucket and change the water & soap often.

duh.

Oh, and yes, YETI is the 'Lacoste/IZOD' of coolers.

Someone please slap a Yeti sticker on their Auto Zone bucket, post it on ebay and link it here. We'll take bets on the price.

The reviews are a little disappointing because I was looking forward to seeing people try to justify a $40 bucket

Carrier Corp must be buying these buckets for their employees. I see Carrier HVAC guys using the Yeti buckets to carry their tools in. They used 5-gallon buckets before, typically with a piece of 1/2" copper pipe over the white plastic handle so it did not hurt their hands while walking into large factories and warehouses. Their tools are heavy and the white plastic handle hurts your hands over a period of time so they use the copper pipe for comfort. But now they're using Yeti buckets. I laughed at first. Then one of the guys told me how bad it sucked when you cracked a bucket full of tools or when the handle fell off while hoisting your tools up a ladder. So I kind of get it now.

Not sure why you'd need a heavy duty bucket for bait, though.

This may sound crazy, but why not use a device, such as a tool box or bag, to carry tools?

Well if you guys hate it, I've gotta get one. If you get all the accessories you can get this thing up to $200. What better way to tell the guy fishing next to you that your doing way better than him?

I don?t claim to be a HVAC mechanic. However, toting tools in and out of large buildings seems simplist in a bucket with a bucket boss tool organizer. You have the organizer for your hand tools, and the bucket for your larger more awkward items like a drill or leak detector. A bag would probably work untill you got tired of looking for a 1/4? nut driver.

IDK, I see tons of people with these on the subway every day. Seems like it would be easier than lugging a big bucket around.
