Both Yeti Ramblers and Ozark Trail Tumblers are:

  • Double-Walled
  • Vacuum-Sealed
  • Stainless Steel
  • Sweat-proof
  • BPA-free

Because of the “Yeti Knockoff Tumbler Cups,”  Roy and Ryan Seiders, must be shaking their heads at this.

Actually, rumor has it that both brands of tumblers are manufactured in the SAME building in China.

For example, the Ozark Trail 52 Quart has a fish scale ruler, built-in bottle opener, and drink holders.

2nd Example: Ozark Trail Premium Jumbo Cooler vs Yeti Hopper 30

Well, this came as a surprise to us. The Ozark Trail Premium Jumbo Cooler actually has quite a few differences when compared to a Yeti Hopper.

Like they did with their rigid coolers, Walmart added extras to set their version apart from Yeti. However, it’s important to realize that Yeti’s Coolers are MUCH more durable!

Yeti vs Ozark Trail: Butting Heads

yeti vs ozark trail

Unsurprisingly, Yeti’s suing Walmart, since Walmart’s Ozark Trail tumblers are practically the same. Actually, rumor has it that Walmart produces its Ozark Trail products in the same factory where some Yeti products are produced.

Yeti vs Walmart Lawsuit

Since Walmart’s line of Ozark Trail is under public scrutiny right now, it’s the perfect time to compare Yeti vs Ozark Trail.

Naturally, Yeti responded to these “Yeti knockoffs” by pulling out the big guns. Walmart should’ve known that Yeti has a history of coming after “knock-off” brands.

Just recently, in February of 2017, Yeti settled a lawsuit against RTIC. The United States Court ruled in favor of Yeti. As a result, RTIC launched a new line of coolers, with variations in design and even extra features.

Based on Yeti’s success rate, it seems likely that Walmart will lose a large sum of money and have to redesign their tumblers.

Yeti vs Ozark Trail: So, what’s our opinion?

Well, Yeti Rambler tumblers and Ozark Trail tumblers are the same. Except, of course, the logos and the Ramblers’ “YETI” stamping. Of course companies are going to mimic the first new invention. But the mistake Walmart made was directly comparing themselves to Yeti.

Yeti vs Ozark Trail: Conclusion

Yeti vs Ozark Trail Coolers

In conclusion, in the Yeti vs Ozark Trail comparison, the tumblers are exactly the same. Ozark Trail’s coolers, however, aren’t quite as high quality. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t great choices, especially if you’re not planning on heavy-duty fishing, hiking, or camping.

Good luck Walmart, but Yeti’s probably going to squash you.

On that highly positive note, we end our review of Yeti vs Ozark Trail. Thanks for stopping by!

Cold Retention Test Videos

1st Example: Yeti 30 Ounce Rambler vs Ozark Trail Tumbler 30

In this first side-by-side comparison, these twin tumblers hold ice for about the same amount of time. The Ozark Trail model held ice for a whopping 50 hours, just five hours more than the Yeti Rambler.

But really, who even needs a drink to last that long?

2nd Example: Yeti Rambler vs Ozark Trail Tumbler

Just like their eerily identical construction, it’s a tie in this second example. And when the camera zooms in on the tumblers, you can that they look exactly the same.

 Yeti Vs Ozark Trail: Tumbler Hot Test Challenges

Of course, we can’t just test tumblers’ chilling abilities. They’re also great for keeping hot beverages nice and toasty. Unsurprisingly, the results of both “hot test challenges” yield the same results.

(Are you bored with the similarities yet? Don’t worry. The good part is coming up.)

1st Example: Yeti Rambler 20 vs Ozark Trail Tumbler 20

Both tumblers started out with hot water at 185 degrees Fahrenheit. At the end, the water in both tumblers was 102 degrees Fahrenheit. If you weren’t convinced of their twin-like relationship before, this one really won us over.
