The Colster I received did not have laser etching on the bottom like a genuine one. It did not include the can or sticker or mini catalog. It weighs less than an authentic Colster. The label has several spacing errors, frostbit is misspelled, The logo on the lid is clear on the genuine one, but not on the fake one. The brown background is solid on the fake label, but looks like dirt on the genuine label.

Ok, I will admit, I thought I was an idiot for buying a coozy for over 30 bucks. But I said hey, self, it's way cheaper than buying a yeti cooler, save the money and spend it frivolously on an extra bag of ice, and LOTS more beer. Plus, since I'm a brand whore, now I can say I own a yeti product, and it comes with the sticker to prove it.
So I tried it out. Hell yeah, it keeps beer cold after 20 minutes, like ya just popped tops. After the 30 minute mark, it's come up a few degrees, but also at less volume and a significant decline in carbonization I didn't expect a perfect sip. Now, here's where I really fall in love with this bad boy. After 40+ minutes, after I realize I've totally lost my beer, forgot about it, or it just grew legs, once I locate it I have more than enough chill left inside this steel silo of suds sanctuary that I can quaff back the remaining dead soldier and not feel like I'm chuggin Moose piss.
Here's the thing. I'm a craft beer snob, I'll admit it. I don't drink ice cold... anything really. I prefer my brews to linger in the low 40s for hop monsters to really unleash a tongue scorching lupulin kick with a fragrant how-do-you-do and high 40s for malt forward midnight oil stouts and porters. I even have two beer fridges with digital temp sensors (well, three, but that's all homebrew in kegs) to dial in my sweet spots. Beer geeks: THIS IS YOUR ACE IN THE HOLE!
Bring this guy with you to your buddies parties, enjoy your own little taste of home. But beware, everyone will ask about it, and everyone will want it. So after 6 months of use and abuse, here's a few things I've accumulated to help me ease my impulse buying remorse.
Pro tip 1: Customize your colster. I prefer stickers, your opinions may vary. Let others know it's yours, they can't have it, hands off. And if you lose it, chances are people will piece the puzzle together to find its way back home.
Pro tip 2: if you own a boat, you need this dude. With its wide base and low center of gravity, your chances of sitting in a puddle of pilsner are greatly decreased. Also, stainless steel is great in direct sun as it reflects the rays.
Pro tip 3: if you drop it hard or drunk rage throw it at someone/thing, it will dent a bit. But go ahead and wear your dings and dents, bruises show character and signs of heavy trusted use. Unless they're on your wife, cuz you're going to jail.
Pro tip 4: the cold ring screw on top has a soft rubber top that's perfect for glass bottles. When wet and sweaty (from condensation, not your brow, but maybe hit the gym this week anyway) most bottles simply slide in and out without spinning the ring off. Easy swap for a new brew. Although, since we're on the subject you should try a Sierra Nevada bottle just to experience pure ecstasy as you delight in how perfectly the shorter fatter bottles fit like a Trojan inside this baby. Blew. My. Mind.
Pro tip 5: add ice to the inside before slipping one in for an even more frigid blast from the bowels of this beast. If you're into that sort of thing.
And finally tip 6, Keep this coozy clean. Inside and out. In a pinch, using it as a cup for a mixed drink is a treasure, and cuts down on wasting red plastic disposable cups at parties or on the go. Single use or disposable consumables have a huge impact on the planet, so try to minimize as much as you can afford. While on the subject, glass bottles can typically be recycled and reused once, whereas aluminum has a nearly infinite reusable ability. Using this guy helps remind me to buy cans and save the world. You're welcome by the way.
Pro tip 49: it keeps hot stuff hot too. Crazy, I know, but nobody thinks to fill it with coffee at a gas station when you're gonna be working outside. Or if you bring it camping (for keeping that six pack cold you left tied off in the stream to chill it down wink wink) it also makes a perfect insulated cup for hot soups, oatmeal, etc on chilly mornings while you're cleaning camp. Which makes in a multi use item so now you can justify not shaving every ounce from your pack, and you just talked yourself into bringing a few IPAs for day 3 of your next journey, when your feet will be screaming but you just don't care.
So to sum it all up, this is a stellar product. No, I don't work for yeti, and if I'm honest, I didn't even buy mine online. I just love what it does for my drinking styles. If you love beer, do yourself a favor and buy this thing right now. You won't regret it. Unless you end up loving it so much you write a 9 page amazon review cuz I kinda regret it. Good stuff deserves good praise.
Keep the mock can that comes with it

Keep the mock beer can that comes with the koozie. The mock beer can has a lid that comes off and this is what you put your 12oz bottle in to keep the bottle from rattling around. You don't need to stuff a foam koozie or anything else in there. I think most folks throw this mock can away
Fake Product from Wholesale Cup

Fake Product from Wholesale Cup.
This is a well-made fake. They may have even come from the same factory before the serial numbers are etched into the bottom. However, they are not authentic merchandise and that is why I'm leaving this review. Therefore, the 1 star review is only for the item I received and not for authentic Yeti products.
The product from Wholesale cup does not have a serial number etched into the bottom. It also does not say "Designed in Austin, TX Made in China" followed by the serial number.
Also the label is materially different from an authentic label. I attached a comparison of the label from this product and an authentic label. They are close but clearly different. I don't think Yeti would allow spelling errors on their labels: instead of frostbit, it says "frosthit". There are other tells. The letters do not line up as they do on the authentic label as would happen if you guessed the font and the font size and spacing.
It appears to be a reasonably made product but it is not authentic merchandise, if that is important to you.

Not an authentic Yeti colster. Bottom of the colster fails to provide certain information that can be found on the bottom of real Yeti colsters.
Part of it missing!
