We are proud to take part in various philanthropic efforts, and no request is too big or too small. Due to a high number of requests, unfortunately it is not possible to support everyone, but we absolutely want to hear your request! Please contact us here so we can learn more about your organization and/or charity.
ALWAYS PRE-CHILL YOUR COOLER. Coolers used immediately after being stored in a warm garage or vehicle will trap in warm air and accelerate the rate of ice melt. Storing your cooler at or below room temperature or throwing in a “sacrificial” bag of ice the night before will ensure your coolers insulative properties work with you, not against you! If the interior walls of the cooler are cool to the touch, you’re off to a good start.
ALL ICE IS NOT CREATED EQUAL. Small cubes of “wet ice” (ice kept at or near 32 degrees Fahrenheit) are often already halfway to water. Hard-frozen bags found in the back or bottom of the cooler at the store is always preferable. For those looking to go pro, we recommend dry ice or our Yukon Ice Block in combination with regular ice cubes for maximum retention.
DON’T SKIMP, FILL ‘ER UP! Air is always warmer than ice, so be sure to fill in any empty space in your cooler with ice.
TWICE THE ICE is oh so nice. Aim for a 2:1 ice-to-contents ratio when packing your cooler.
DON’T DRAIN THE ICE MELT! As ice begins to melt, keep that newly liquified glacial good-good in the cooler to improve ice retention.
KEEP IT SHUT! Minimize time spent with the lid open, and always latch/zip it shut once you’ve fished out your next cold one. Because… ya know… a closed cooler works better than an open one!
That’s the idea! The copper lined, vacuum insulated design of your tumbler does not discriminate between warm and cold liquids, it’s all about temperature retention. Depending on the environmental temperature, iced beverages are generally retained longer, (up to a day or so) but you can expect your coffee to be warm for hours as well.
The sliding splash guard on the lid is just that- a splash guard to prevent minor spills when the road gets bumpy. When gravity is in play, liquid will still trickle out from the underneath the slider. Now if liquid is escaping from around rim, that is a different story. The gasket around the circumference of the lid is absolutely designed to be water tight, so if it is leaking from there check to make sure your gasket is still evenly wrapped around the inside of the lid. If the problem persists, let us know and we’d be happy to send you a replacement.
Absolutely! We offer drinkware customization by way of laser engraving, in which the your logo or design is etched into the powder-coat finish leaving a sleek, stainless steel one-color embellishment. To get the ball rolling, find our custom program here.
The United States of America. We own and operate our own manufacturing facility in beautiful West Tennessee, where all Yukon Outfitters hammocks are produced. How many other brands have a headquarters that shares a roof with a 28,000 square ft. sewing factory?
Touché. When it comes to names, what we lack in creativity we make up for in patriotic enthusiasm because, well… making these babies in the States isn’t easy, so we get a little boastful. Here’s the hammock line run-down:
Freedom Series - Single color (including camo) hammocks cut at 120” x 60”. Cinch Buckle Suspension included.
Patriot Series - Two color, extended width hammocks cut at 120” x 72”. The contrasting colored trim panels provide the extra width to the hammock. Cinch Buckle Suspension included.
SomniSmart Series – Available in both 120” x 60” and 120” x 72” cuts, these hammocks use Repreve fabric comprised of recycled plastic materials. Love your Mother Earth! Cinch Buckle Suspension included.
Vista Series – The market’s first full-body printed hammock, years later the Vista is still among the most popular of Yukon hammocks. Cut at 120” x 60”, choose from a wide array of colorful and fun designs, or design you own with our Custom Team. (MOQs apply) Cinch Buckle Suspension included.
Coming Soon - Featherweight Series- Incorporating some design features DIYers have been using for years, the Featherweight Hammock aims to be a trail ready, light weight hammock ready to hang with cord locking suspension already included. Years of crowd sourced field testing is proving to be invaluable on this one! Looking at you Appalachian Trail Days fam, thank you!
Common sense goes a long way! A sturdy trunk or branch of a live tree is always your best bet. Give that branch a tug to see how strong it is before you attach your tree strap to it. It’s more about where NOT to hang from- Avoid dead or decaying trees, rocks with sharp edges, and be particularly careful with manmade structures. That support beam may be great for holding up a roof, but it may not be designed to anchor weight being pulled down on it. Chimneys, pillars, and columns are all potentially dangerous structures to hang from and should be avoided. And remember, never hang higher than you’re willing to fall should you roll out! We recommend a safe hanging height that exceeds no more than a couple of feet from the ground.
Both suspension methods use tree straps to wrap around and anchor to the tree, the difference is where the hammock meets the strap. With Cinch Buckle Suspension, your cinch buckle is attached to each end of your hammock and you simply feed the strap through the buckle and adjust to the desired length. Carabiner-Tree Straps are used with a carabiner on each end of the hammock, allowing the user to attach to the appropriate bar-tack point.
Just in case carabiners are your preference, we want to accommodate that too. Also, in the event you already have a hammock from another brand but just need some compatible tree straps, we have you covered!
You can, but thinner cordage can be damaging to tree bark, whereas our 1” webbing tree straps distribute the pressure more evenly across the surface of the tree. If you want to use ropes on private land with permission, well okay, but make sure you know your knots! Always use webbing at least 1” wide on public lands where hammocks are permitted so that folks can enjoy that natural beauty for years to come!
Our hammocks are designed to be breathable and wick moisture away from your body, so they are not going to prevent moisture from coming through. It is not harmful for them to get wet, just be sure to hang them out to dry when you get home to prevent mildew and dry rotting. Leaving your hammock in the stuff sack soaking wet in the stuff sack for an extended period of time might decrease the lifespan of your hammock.
Again, not recommended. Extreme temperatures and violent tumbling associated with machine washing are not conducive to a long healthy lifespan for your hammock. We recommend old-school soap and water with a rag, (no stiff bristle brushes) and hang drying.
Some colors are not produced every season, so if you saw a certain color at a store but don’t see it on the website, it was most likely last season’s color offering. There’s a good chance it might be back again, feel free to reach out to us and find out for sure!
