Large, virtually indestructible, unmatched insulating power, with a sleek design, on wheels for easy mobility. We’re talking about the Yeti Tundra Haul Portable Wheeled Cooler, the best large cooler on wheels.
Wheels, Wheels, Wheels! The Tundra is the first and only mobile Yeti cooler on the market. Fans demanded and Yeti delivered. These wheels are puncture resistant and tracks left or right for heel-friendly easy to pull one hand totting over almost any terrain.
The Tundra is a very high quality, bear proof cooler that is built to last. It has heavy duty rubber latches and 2″ insulating walls witch holds ice up to 7-10 days.

The Yeti Tundra can hold 55 lbs of ice, 45 cans, gets a 4.5 stare rating and once again Yeti raises the bar for the toughest coldest cooler.
The number one complaint about the Yeti Tundra is that it does not come with a dry goods wire basket. This does not bother me, but I can see how it can be a deal breaker. There are a lot of creative ways you can fix this problem with a little google search and ingenuity by adapting other wire baskets. One person states that the Igloo 20074 wire basket black, 72-94 quart selling for $17.10 on Amazon fits perfectly. I personally have not tested this theory.
Putting wheels on a Yeti doesn’t come without a downside. There is no anti lock on the wheels to prevent the cooler from rolling if on a boat, or the back of a truck. The Tundra would need to be tied down in these situations, although I would think even with a lock system any cooler would still have to be tied down.
The Tundra with its never flat wheels and easy towing capability may be a little difficult to maneuver over sand or thick loos dirt because of how heavy it is, weighing in at a whooping 37 lbs when empty.
No cooler comes without a down side, but if you are looking for the toughest, sleekest, coldest, easy to pull cooler on wheels, you’ve found it!
