Yeti knock-off - Solid Performance
on February 28, 2016
Bought this as a "cheaper" alternative to the 30oz Yeti Tumbler because the Yeti has been so hard to find in stock locally. After reading some of the reviews here about the Titan, I thought I'd give it a try.
Product was shipped and received in a timely manner and the packaging looked typical to most imported goods.
The Titan tumbler looks and feels very similar to the Yeti, with the Titan standing just a shy taller and the smaller base circumference rising a little higher than the Yeti as well.
Of course, I wanted to see how the product compared with the Yeti in maintaining the contents temperature over a long period. I immediately duplicated the Titan and Yeti to the same hand wash and then placed the exact same number of ice cubes and ounces of water into the cups. Both did amazingly well to start, but over a period of 2-3 hours in the car in the shade (65° Exterior Temp), the Yeti still had a substantial amount of ice while the Titan had completely melted. I repeated a test with ice water and letting it set overnight. The Yeti still had significant ice in the cup after sitting overnight. The Titan ice was completely gone and the temperature of the water was cool, at best.
As far as look and feel, the Titan was fine. Performance wise, I am very disappointed.
Look and feel of the cup.
Price point (was appealing)
Performance of maintaining content temperature was very disappointing in comparison to Yeti brand tumbler.
UPDATE: The seller reached out to me and sent a replacement tumbler. Once I received that one, I did an overnight test to compare the original one with the replacement. After 12+ hours, the replacement cup read temps just over 33 degrees and still had ice in it. The original cup registered 57 degrees and was obviously void of ice.
The cups look identical, but the performance between the two were night and day. Based on the replacement cup, I bumped this up to 4 stars. I still don't think it meets the same performance as my Yeti tumbler, but it was not too far off from matching.
