and to think I paid $10 for the handle for mine and yes it says Yeti on it - should have waited I guess, but than I probably would have never found the $2.74 ones at W-M if I had. it was a 'impulse' buy, but it works good :beer: being the 30oz'er is so hard to hold on too without it !!!!

Here’s the WM handle , 2 bucks and change , and they even had the lids for a similar price , special straws too .. :thumbsup: 8) In the CAMPING SECTION above the Ozark Trail pans and skillets ...
Although we do have Big Hands , the handle does make it easier to grip ... ;)

glad to see you did find the handles - also saw they ("Ozak" brand) have a 64oz thermos type stainless container now also with a screw/threaded plug stopper - 1/2 gallon sized and if it works as good as their tumblers do, it looks like it would make a great coffee thermos for travel - I think is was something like 20 bucks.

the 64oz thermos bottle I saw the other day was cheaper than I said -just under $15 and also found they also have a 36oz version for less than $10 - as good as all of their other items work, I got them both. as bad as my Aladdin thermos coffee craft does - I figure this one should do better, we'll see. The stoppers for both of these items are the same and fit either. Found the straws you spoke of and what is nice about them is that they come with a cleaning brush for them also. I also took another look at the handle for the 30oz and it's close in size but is just a bit to small in diameter for the 40oz they are also selling now - why?? :thumbdown: so close just not quite there. as close as what they are, you would have thought they could have made them fit both. :thinking:

Mr. Aladdin coffee craft just got tossed into the 'donation' pile - last nite I filled all 3 (new 64oz and 36oz along with the Aladdin) with just hot tap water - 116 degrees in each. This morning, 9 1/2 hours later - the 64oz was 106*, the 36oz was 98* and the Aladdin was 66* :thumbdown: At no time during this little test could I even "feel" heat when touching the top of the 2 new bottles yet there was always heat being felt on the top of the Aladdin. :thumbsup: up for the new Ozak thermos bottles!! Now they need to make a handle for both of them - there BIG in diameter......

did another test of the New Ozak 64oz 'thermos' bottle and my Aladdin using coffee temp water this time in both - 157 degree water over a 24 hour period of time. 12 hrs Ozak = 134 * (Aladdin = 78*) / 18 hrs Ozak = 121* (Aladdin = 63*) / 24 hrs Ozak = 112* (Aladdin = 55*) I am impressed being 112* after 24 hours is still drinkable coffee in my mind!!!! I just now dumped the water after 33 hours and the Qzak was still at 98* (and the Aladdin was now at 49* it is in the donate pile after this, was never impressed with it anyway). While doing this test I filled the new 36oz Ozak bottle with ice cubes and 2 full days later it is still over half full of ice- about 2/3 full - it has been hanging in my reck room approx. 6ft in from the room wall blower heater with the room temp at 70*-72*. :thinking: ""Testing has been now completed"" :thumbsup: (a good example what winter boredom, when not camping can do to a person - must be time :beer: )

I dumped the water at 10PM tonight - 48 hours and the temp was at 88 degrees - in 2 days/48 hours, it lost 69 degrees. 157 - 88 = 69 degrees total loss. The Aladdin 1 day/24 hours it lost 102 degrees. 157 - 55 = 102 degrees total loss.

I went to Walmart today, and just about forgot to get the "handles", still for $ 2.74. I bought the last two on the shelf, for the two 30 oz. tumblers I had bought months ago at Home Depot. The stainless tumblers all look the same, and the handles must be universal for all the 30 oz. I haven't used mine much, since I'm used to grabbing my Bubba mug (52 oz) by its' handle, without looking. Without a handle, I kept tipping mu stainless tumbler over, and spilling it. Now, with the handle, I can use it again. Thumbs up! (I was hesitant to get the $ 7-9 handles I had seen before, but at < $ 3, a no-brainer purchase!)

they just have the "ONE" handle for the 30oz but NO handles for any of their other ones and when you look at almost all of them - they are so close to being the same in the diameter size!! I would have thought :thinking: they could have come up with one 'standard' diameter that the 'one' handle would have fit around. (I did just "adapt" one of the handles to their 36oz thermos type bottles - there was only about a 1/8 inch gap when you slipped the handle around it which I made up with DUCK tape, putting on just enough to take up the gap and so far it looks like it will work - if not? MORE DUCK TAPE!! :thumbsup: )

there are HANDLES NOW for 20oz'ers - was at Camping World today and saw they have handles now in stock for their 20oz Caribou brand tumblers. Being I believe the same company in China makes ALL of these tumblers, no matter the brand name, I bought a couple and YES, just as I thought!!! the Caribou handle from C-W fits the Ozak from W-M!! just as the 30oz handle from Yeti fits the 30oz from W-M!! along with the lids interchanging between all 3 of these brands also. The 20oz handle at C-W sells for $6 each - it does have a lot more meat/beefier made than the 30oz handle from W-M and Yeti and also come in colors - Black, Blue, Pink/Red and Orange.

The other morning ~ 10:00 Am we filled the OT 30oz. tumbler with ice and water . Put it in the truck , in the console where it sat for hours in the hot sun ( tumbler covered by a small hand towel ) At 3:00 PM I had a drink it was still nice and cold ... brought it home put it on the coffee table , and at midnight , there was still ice in it ... :D Love these cheap tumblers , and since we have large hands , the handle really doesn’t do much ... and actually kinda’ feels off balance to me ... just sayin’ ...
