Ahhh how this post is nothing like what I had pictured in my head!
As usual on Coffee Talking I like to mention where the post ideas came from. This one, innocently enough was with the thought of 'camping' and 'keeping coffee hot' coupled with my penchant for walking around the camping department(s) of big retailers and trying not to drool on all the merchandise I cannot afford. Like awesome Yeti tumblers and travel mugs!
While popping over to Amazon to find some images and links, I started to read through reviews and saw a few posts on trying to discern the fakes from originals. While I got some good hints and tips, I found it interesting that people were just as likely to get an authentic as a fake if they chose an overseas seller from China. Meaning; you get either... or both. One reviewer ordered 8 tumblers and found 7 of them were authentic and one was a dud. Interesting!
So the first thing I decided to post was some hints on how to determine fakes from the real thing;
- The stainless steel exterior is engraved with Yeti but the "clear" lid has a blue tint to it and the font on the band surrounding the rambler is incorrect font.
- YETI logo NOT embossed, just etched on. ALL real YETI products have embossed logo on the body of the tumblers.
- The 30 oz Yeti is 40 grams lighter in weight than the authentic 30 oz Yeti purchased from a USA Yeti dealer.
- The tumblers' metal finish is not the same texture or color as the products from American dealers.
- Fake lids have clear block letters not the frosted block letters used on a genuine YETI.
- Printed material included in the tumbler set is gloss blue instead of flat black bought from an American authorized dealer.
So with that information in hand... commence with some Yeti product links I found!
