But that leaves one very big — and hungry — elephant in the room:yei.。That may soon change, as GearJunkie obtained a patent filing from the Austin, Texas-based cooler manufacturer that appears to show YETI’sconcept for an insulated food vessel

但是,其他品牌设计的设计专注于筑巢形状和热保留,但“container and lid“包括可调节通风口,可以手动或自动地接合随着容器内的压力构建。

First, the vent system allows air pressure in the storage area to be manually, or automatically, equalized with the ambient air pressure if a predetermined air pressure is reached inside the container. You turn the knob, and it clicks into different detents with a haptic or audible feedback so the user knows the vent is in place.

第二, showing different sized internal containers for food, liquids, [etc.] that can fit into the container to keep them cold or hot. These containers can be mixed and matched depending on what you’re bringing with you.

Basically, think of a large, insulated jug — up to 120 ounces — with an adjustable-venting lid. Users can click this vent closed, open, or “auto,” which could allow the vessel to vent when pressure builds up inside the canister. This could be very helpful if you have, say, hot soup inside at a cold campsite. A venting lid could prevent an explosive mishap from pressure buildup.


It looks like [YETI is] offering three sizes of these internal containers — small, medium, large — all of which can be interchangeable and stack very nicely in the container. Soups, veggies, and meats can all be separate and maintain a desired temperature for a long time.

The patent also cites the use of a magnetic lid — like YETI’sbig Rambler jug- 根据专利归档,这将是“可以磁性地吸引到通气塞”。

And one final note: As with most of its new product offerings,yei.appears to have designed another “handy” feature — a secondary handle. The design sketches show a handle grip on the bottom of the jug, presumably to make twisting off the lid a little easier.
