It has been rated as one of the most influential equipment in history by the well-known outdoor magazine Outsider, and is regarded as the most worth buying series of Stanley. The classic green hammer body, with the thickened stainless steel bottom, after the bump but more profound feeling. This series of thermos cup capacity is large enough, but also adopts an integrated plug insulation design, 1L with a retractable handle, suitable for long outdoor work or sports use.

1.4 The Master series

The Master Series is an upgrade from the classic series with QuadVac™ technology, which adds two layers of partitions to the double vacuum for durability and insulation to meet more demanding tests.  The Master series design is also better, has won the Red dot design award, it uses the frosted texture of the all-black cup design, the brand logo “Stanley” laser, more stylish.

1.5 The Adventure and Go Outdoor series

The Adventure and Go Outdoor series pay more attention to meeting the needs of users in addition to insulation, and have a larger capacity to avoid frequent refilling. The suction cup is the finishing touch of the adventure series, avoiding the common suction cup design with a spring cap and silicone ring on the market, the suction nozzle is connected to the air, which is not easy to cause hot water to erupt from the suction nozzle when the lid is opened, and the safety of the hot water is stronger, and the double vacuum inner liner has a strong insulation capacity, the bottom diameter of the cup is 7cm, which can be compatible with most car cup holders.

It should be noted that the suction mouth has no other protective measures, and is only suitable for use in indoor or car areas where it is not easy to dump and the environment is relatively stable. In addition, the double inner liner is heavy and the whole cup size is too large, and it is not suitable for children.

1.6 The Go series

The Go series uses Ceramivac™ technology to make the inner liner, which is mixed with ceramic coating to improve the “metallic taste” often found in stainless steel insulated water bottle, so that the drinking taste is closer to the glass, which is a good partner for cold beer, hot coffee and other drinks. It is worth mentioning that the Go series also launched a retro square portable wine pot with a single-layer pot body, sacrificing heat preservation to reduce weight. The lid of the pot has an anti-falling lock, so that when placed in the pocket of clothes, there is no need to worry about spilling wine. The handmade hammer pattern and Vintage appearance make it full of retro gentlemen.

Compared with the classic and master series, the “coffee cup” and “straw cup” of Stanley button drinking are more detailed in the application scenario, but they also sacrifice some insulation. From the perspective of universality, durability and insulation, the Stanley Classic series and the Master series of large-capacity insulated water bottle are more cost-effective.

The shape of the S ‘Well thermos cup is similar to a bowling pin, with a slender body and a diameter of 3.2cm at the mouth, which is just enough to put in a standard size of ice, but the small caliber and long body is not convenient to clean. From the point of view of design, S ‘well is not as bright as Corkcicle, and its appearance level is more from the color, spray paint and pattern of the cup body. The texture and pattern of the shell are made of soybean environmentally friendly pigments, which is non-toxic and harmless.

4. Yeti

4.1 Yeti’s history

A super name that has grown into a $3.3 billion market cap in just over a decade: Yeti.

Yeti is an outdoor products brand from the United States, mainly producing high-end thermal boxes, beverage insulated water bottle and other products. As a very representative legendary overseas brand, this is a classic case of category redefinition.

For marketing practitioners who rely more on the extreme cost performance to open overseas markets, this brand is very worthy of our research and learning.

Yeti was founded in 2006 by brothers Roy and Ryan Seiders. They grew up in a small village in Texas. As avid outdoorsmen who often hunt and fish outdoors, the brothers found that all the coolers were inadequate for their outdoor adventures – handles would break, latches would snap, LIDS would cave in, boxes would crack and ice would be stored too short.

For outdoor lovers, whether it is to preserve the catch of prey or to keep cold beer warm for a long time, it is simply the needs of this group, and the performance of the refrigerator at the time is not satisfactory.

Pain points worth thousands of dollars!

After some research, an extremely durable leather, can withstand the rough toss in any environment, but also to achieve a long time temperature insulation effect, excellent sealing freezer was born.

Yeti became the first brand to focus on extremely high quality and high performance reefers. It can be said that the positioning of Yeti redefines the category of refrigerator.

Before Yeti, the idea of spending $300 on a cooler would have been met with laughter. Most of the coolers on the market at that time were priced around $20 to $30, and Yeti coolers were 10 times more expensive than other options, with the smallest Yeti coolers costing more than $250 and the most expensive more than $1,000.

However, the brothers, as outdoor enthusiasts, know the pain points of this group, and the extremely high-quality refrigerator will be able to support a high premium.

The two brothers spent countless weekends driving around Texas in a pickup truck full of coolers to sell. Soon, sales exploded. Outdoor life enthusiasts approve of YETI’s perverted durability and insulation time, even at such a high price. The YETI cooler became a staple for lovers of offshore fishing, remote hiking and long-distance hunting trips.

4.2 What is the primary core of YETI’s success?

Innovation based on deep consumer insight

The most core marketing concept that we all should know: product and market needs matching – PMF (product market fit). The core of YETI’s reconstruction of this category is to find the pain points faced by consumers at that time and the lack of better solutions, a neglected market gap.

Let’s think about the selection and product development strategies that our regular  sellers use. The most common is what we call data selection, scanning and climbing the successful competitive products on the market, analyzing the degree of competition between supply and demand in the market with data, quickly imitating the competition pairs that get the results, and analyzing which elements and links of these competitors can be optimized and surpassed.

Analysis, imitation, optimization. This is a good product selection and product development strategy.

In this case, however, the founders of YETI did not consider imitation at all. The price is 10 times higher than the peer, and the quality of the almost abnormal product is unimaginable in this category at that time.

Innovation is not impossible. The underlying reason for YETI’s success is that the two brothers themselves are hardcore consumers of this kind of purpose. As avid outdoor life lovers, the two brothers know what this group needs and whether this group will pay a high price to solve this pain point.

Innovation or imitation is not the right one or the wrong one. Both have suitable soil.

Many brand operators also hold the same view, Duan Yongping mentioned in the interview, imitation is not humiliating, imitation to get too large results of the opponent is a very effective strategy. Innovation is great, but doing unproven things means higher trial and error costs and a higher probability of failure.

Duan added that innovation is not impossible, but there is a prerequisite. Unless you have a deep understanding and insight of the industry and a certain group of people, innovation has a high probability of success.

However, consumer understanding and research should never be neglected. Only through the deep insight of consumers can we get rid of the extreme cost performance strategy that we have relied on too much, and develop products that can truly form differentiation and be accepted by the market.

Become widely known

The ultimate quality to become the best solution for outdoor lovers’ pain points is just the first step. The wine is also afraid of the deep alley, YETI how to convince more consumers?

YETI’s marketing team is very good at telling stories.

Among its various marketing campaigns, YETI’s videos of its products being ravaged by a grizzly bear are the most impressive. The large, strong grizzly bear is a symbol of strength and wildness in the eyes of Americans.

4.3 How to let consumers feel the abnormal quality of YETI.

Yeti has received a “Grizzly Bear certification” from the IGBC, an interagency agency related to bears in the United States, certifying that its products have sufficient strength and durability.

The “Grizzly Bear Certification” is a certification issued by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC), a committee of federal, state, and local governments dedicated to the protection of grizzly bears and their habitat. Members of the committee include the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Department of the Interior, Environment and Climate Change Canada and others. The commission has developed a series of regulations and standards to ensure that outdoor products are strong and durable enough to withstand grizzly bear attacks.

For a brand to obtain “Grizzly bear certification”, it needs to go through a number of rigorous tests and evaluations, including simulated grizzly bear attack, simulated grizzly bear bite and puncture. Only by passing these tests and meeting IGBC’s standards can a product be “grizzly certified” and considered to provide adequate protection in the event of a grizzly bear’s presence.

A grizzly bear can’t be made to break. Isn’t that convincing enough?

4.4 Yeti’s influence

Become widely known

YETI’s extreme insulation and durability have earned it the love of lovers of outdoor living. However, this group, mainly the red neck population of the American South, is not large. If the brand wants to grow further, it must realize the expansion and extension of the user group.

Although YETI’s initial target customer group was outdoor life lovers, over time, YETI’s customer base has expanded to a broader consumer market, including people who are not necessarily outdoor life lovers. More city dwellers have also become avid fans of YETI, even if they don’t need the ultimate quality coolers.

YETI’s own growth path and the earliest customer groups have doomed YETI’s natural ability to gain popularity.

If customers are also graded, YETI’s early core user base can not only bring sales, but also completely define the brand’s mental positioning in the public.

Some people call this group the brand crowd. In other words, the brand becomes what the public thinks it is because the public knows that the brand has such a hardcore audience.

YETI has built an indestructible reputation among enthusiasts of outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing who first adopted it. At the same time, Outdoor life itself is a lifestyle desired by the public, and the outdoor label on TikTok has accumulated up to 10 billion plays.

5. Corkcicle

5.1 The characteristics of Corkcicle

The Tiger brand’s innovation and durability have also been passed down to the present day. The lightweight of the Tiger brand thermos cup is already the industry-leading level, and the 480ml thermos cup only weighs 190g, which is 15% lighter than the same capacity products in the past and is more portable. While achieving lightweight, the Tiger brand thermos cup still has excellent thermal insulation performance, and the temperature of the hot water is still relatively hot after 8 hours. Moreover, the bottom of the cup uses laser welding technology, and the overall body looks more compact and beautiful.

From the point of view of similar products on the market, the Tiger brand’s one-button hot-cover thermos cup has the most smooth one-hand operation. The one-button cap cup is generally designed with a safety lock to prevent collision or misoperation during carrying, resulting in the lid popping open and hot water flowing out.

In addition, the Tiger brand straw cover children’s thermos cup is a special cup for cold protection, because the cup cover with a straw seal insulation performance is poor, poor heat protection performance, and the design of the straw can not be loaded into the temperature of too high hot water, only filled with warm water, parents need to pay attention to the use of children. Among them, 280mL MCK-A28C is suitable for kindergarten children, with handles on both sides of the cup body, which is easy for children to hold, and the price is 52 dollars.

9. Zojirushi

10. Thermos

10.1 What is Thermos

“Thermos” is synonymous with “hot water bottle” in the English dictionary, and the history of the thermos cup/bottle can be said to be the history of the development of the thermos master. The long-established caterer who flew with the White Brothers and used to deliver blood plasma on World War II battlefields as a munitions supply.

10.2 Thermos brand features

The same as the three major Japanese thermos cup brands, the Thermos in the insulation performance and tiger brand, Zojirushi little difference, all use double-layer vacuum technology lock temperature. There are fewer options for the cup type, and the business style is more concentrated, and the newly launched Queen series is also for the female white-collar market. At the same time, the design of the cup body and the cup is more humane, the streamlined cup body has a groove or frosted design, the hand is not easy to slip, and the cup mouth has an anti-hot drinking mouth design, some office cups also have built-in tea filter, drinking hot tea is more convenient.

10.3 Some series of Thermos

The eight-figure button is the sign of the Thermos to open the lid cup with one button. When opening the lid, you need to unlock the eight-figure button down first to press the cover key, which is slightly awkward to operate with one hand. The Thermos has also tried a new way of opening the cap cup, such as the JNS series will design the lid key on the top of the thermos cup, which is more inconvenient to use, and the lid of the cup will touch the hand after pressing the lid key.

There are many series of Thermos, only through the first three letters of the series name can be distinguished, such as JNL500, 501, 502 three series of thermos cup itself is no difference, the difference is the cup surface spray paint and origin. The performance and size of the TCM/N Queen series are similar, only the appearance design is different, the lipstick cup is a real mouth red number for the color, including the more popular cut man color, carrot color and other five choices, while the Queen Cup is designed on the lid of the crown handle, removable as a separate decoration. Considering the portability, the Queen series of thermos cups are very small, are about 200-350ml, easy to plug into the bag.

The JNL series is an upgraded version of the JMY series, the price of 500ml is about 17 dollars, and it only weighs 200g, 130g lighter than the JMY. The aperture of the drinking mouth on the lid is slightly larger than that of JMY, and the water is more smooth.

JNR series is not much different from other products in performance, but the semicircular lock and finger contact area is larger, easy to break in one hand, and long-term use of the lock is not easy to slip and become loose, but the price is four times that of JNL, about 63-70 dollars, not recommended.

10.5 The children’s series of Thermos
