Daedra’s Favorites: The RTIC 30 oz Tumbler

Daedra’s Favorites: The RTIC 30 oz Tumbler

One thing I really love about Strawesome is that when we’re out and about at shows, our customers let us know what is trending in drinkware so that we can match the perfect companion straw to it. This summer was all about the insulated tumblers, so we began to investigate them for ourselves.

We acquired a handful of these tumblers to test many different brands. The one that I found works exceptionally well with our 10” regular glass straws is the RTIC 30 oz tumbler.

It is SO amazing (might I add, darn affordable) and my new best buddy who is always with me because it keeps my water icy cold on the hottest of summer days for hours on end.  I can now enjoy my cold water throughout the day, or in hot yoga class. 30 ounces of water never went down so easy!

And the opening on this lid is a perfect fit for my Strawesome straw (an absolute requirement for sipping out of the RTIC).  It works so well, I truly believe that little notch on the opening was made just for our 10″ regular straws (ok, I made that up, but it seems like it really was). Not only is the notch the right size, but it keeps the heavy glass straw from knocking all around when you’re on the move. I’ve found most other tumbler brands are pretty noisy.   rtic30oz

Moving into the colder months, I can easily take hot beverages with me on the go in this RTIC tumbler and it will stay hot for 12 hours!  Pair this with any of my 10″ designer Strawesome glass straws, and I’m sipping hot beverages safely without worrying about toxins leaching from a plastic straw.

Now, if you already have the very popular Yeti 30 oz tumbler and the default lid that comes with it, know that our straws do not fit into that lid. Before you get disappointed, there’s a simple solution: Yeti sells a straw lid that allows you to use a long Strawesome regular straw similar to the RTIC.  The Yeti is one of those more noisy brands because the straw hole is a bit larger than the straw width, allowing the straw to rattle as you transport the tumbler. This isn’t necessarily a deal breaker because you can be creative and fill in that small gap between the straw and the lid.

Below, we’ve got a bundled deal where you can get your very own RTIC 30 oz tumbler with some of our glass straws for a great price.  Alternatively, if you already have some 10″ Strawesome regular straws, you can purchase just the popular RTIC 30 oz tumbler here.

This holiday season, we created two bundled deals for you which include two 10″ glass straws (one color of your choice and one unique designer) bundled with this outstanding tumbler.

  3. I just purchased an RTIC tumbler for my mom for Christmas – how cool to include a beautiful straw with it! I got hers to keep drinks cold on the beach, so I’m guessing it will hold lots of water or iced tea this summer!

  14. I *love* Strawesome straws. They are so pretty and makes me feel good when I start off each day using one from my growing collection to team up with my lemon detox tea. I don’t have a special drink cup for this though and would love to be the lucky recipient of this tumbler/straw combo to use with it!

  35. I drink water most of the day, with just a tab bit of lemon or lime. But in the cold months, my go to is herbal, caffeine free, loose leaf or fruit teas from our local teaologist at Fezziwigs. Lemon velvet Rooibos. Delicious!

  36. As a night shift nurse I need an IV of caffeine, but coffee through this strawesome would keep me going and looking good as I’m buzzing around all night!
