    They are very well built and made to last for many years. They are a lifetime investment like a great gun or an exceptional pair of optics.

    I have one but would reccomend a better brand if you can find an Engel dealer somewhere. The Engel coolers are actually true to size and keep ice a day longer than the Yeti's in my tests. I use the Engel way more than the Yeti.

    I have one, it is a good cooler and keeps ice longer here in Texas heat BUT, they are heavy when empty and obviously even more so when loaded. Not the best choice if they are too be moved around.

    Yes, and yes they are heavy. So, which do you want to do. Keep buying ice, or get someone to help with the cooler? I opted for the not buying ice. Make my own and don't need any during the week at the lake.

    Just got back from Florida and used our Yeti every day. Always had plenty of ice even when the quality of the ice (crushed ice available at a motel) wasn't as practical for keeping things cold all day. I am going to get a larger size.

    I have seen them many times on the fishing shows. They spend a small fortune on advertising. Funny you asked this question this week as I was at Bass Pro and looking at them this past week. Now I fished my boat for over a decade in S. Fla. year round. I got a Igloo 120qt. "sport" cooler for about half the price as the same Igloo "marine" type cooler. Both kept ice for over a day for me.(3 days after the hurricanes in the shade in my home) Only difference being rope handle and ribbets for the cussion top sold seperately for the marine. Now I saw the same Igloo Marine cooler for $140 this weekend and the Yedi for $400 this weekend. I'm sorry I just can't see spending that amount of difference for a cooler even if it held Ice for 2 days more. I used my cooler only on weekends, so it did not need to keep ice for days. Every time I caugh a fish and added it to the cooler, that melted more ice than anything the sun could do. Granted my Sport was the same cooler as todays Marine and can no longer be bought, the Marine still can. If I shop right I could buy 3 Igloo Marine's coolers for the price of one Yedi!!! I hope you never have to leave it outside, as I would be afraid to do so. I'd stick with the Igloo. Now, if you need to keep the ice all week, and used and needed it for work or business to help make a living, that a different story!!! My 2 cents. Break-em all. Jeff

    Must be one of those "I must have that brand no matter the cost".
    In my time Igloo, kept soda cool,kept soda, food and bait cool, then kept beer, food and bait cool, then kept milk, bait, baby food and formula safe.There was always a larger igloo available, a 120 kept large fish cool and fresh off shore
    Made first live baitwell from 48 qt igloo with help from Igloo what parts I needed.
    Then small hand held, 6 pac for kids to take food to school and so on. Was no brand Yeti Lee

    Well I don't know about others that have responded but I am not a brand buyer unless the brand has proven to work well. I worked out of a boat and did field work out of a Suburban for 28 years as a field fisheries biologist and water quality sampler and never had an Igloo, Coleman, etc. cooler that could keep ice for as long or in as good condition as the Yeti. Get what ever meets your needs. When I want the best keeping things cold I will use a Yeti.

    Easy to bad mouth something you cant afford in your mind. These coolers will pay for themselves in ice savings and less hassles if you use them all the time. Jeff

    The Engel coolers are still a better option for several reasons including price. They also will hold the number of quarts that they advertise while the Yeti"s will not. The Engel coolers will hold ice longer in my experience as well. And the latches on the Engel are much easier to operate than the Yeti's.

    2)we have the answer to the OP's question

    3)we have the suggested other product thats actually better

    4)we have the bad mouthing of said products

    5)we have the bad mouthing of the person that bad mouthed the said products

    6)we have the subtle attempt at humor


    So where is the pics of the said products. Come on guys. You know the rules> :D
