Where are the Cups made?

We are proud to make our Hard coolers and Soft coolers in the USA

Our Drinkware is imported, but in fact ALLstainless steal, double walled, vacuum sealed drinkware from all brands are imported. So there is no such thing as a USA tumbler it doesn'texist.

*We do go the extra mile by printing, assembling and finishing the drinkware in our Ft Worth Texas facility and because of that we are able to hire more workers here in Texas to work that process. 

Why all Tumblers are Not Made in The USA?

1. The raw material of stainless steel. China has the biggest production output for stainless steel material so that they have the most competitive cost.

2. Lack of skill manufacturing engineer and workers. The stainless steel manufacturing production relies on a lot of workers and experienced engineers. Although automation equipment can replace workers but it needs big investment at the beginning and big volume order quantities to support the constant production.

3. Strict environment policy. The stainless steel tumbler is reusable, environmental- and eco-friendly. But the manufacturing process related to plating, electrolysis, polishing and painting all have pollution, which is not accepted in the USA.

In short, there can be no stainless steel tumblers made in the United States because

  • labor
  • cost
  • efficiency
  • environment factors.

This is why all Tumblers are made in other countries except the United States.

Care Instructions?

Non printed Tumblers are top Shelf Dishwater safe.

*Printed cups should be hand washed.

    At its price-point (the price goes up as the cooler gets larger), this upgrade was a tough pill to swallow. I pulled the trigger, and I am happy that I bought it. The cooler is designed to have this pad on top, and if I did not buy it, the cooler would look incomplete. Also, since the cooler could be used as a seat, stool, footrest, you name it, I wanted to make sure it was as safe/nice as it could be. After all, this cooler is an investment.

    I went with brown. Like I stated in my review of the cooler, the color grew on me. I have an Olive cooler with a Tan top. I think grey would have been too grey for my color scheme. The pad came installed, which I was happy about. I would not want to mess up installation myself. It is also clearly custom made with high quality material. It is not super soft, which is fine. It is a thin, high density foam that will serve its purpose for traction and a bit of comfort... and looks. Time will tell how it holds up, but I would imagine that it will do well if not left in the blazing sun 24/7/365. I am also confident that if something happens to it, Bison's Customer Service Department will step up to the plate.

    Would I buy one for my next cooler? Yes.
