    Default Yeti cooler

    Iím thinking about getting a yeti cooler for Fatherís Day. Does anyone have first hand experience with them? It will mainly be used for food and beverages. What draws me to this cooler is the length of time it keeps items cold. I have other cheaper coolers, but they wonít keep a bag of ice frozen all day (thanks Coleman). Let me know if itís worth it, or if you know of another brand that is equal to the task. Thanks.

    I have the standard Coleman cooler and a Friend of mine has a Yeti. It is better insulated but it wasn't hot enough last year when we were camping to do a good comparison as he bought it in Sept. However one friend of mine cut a hole in the top of his Coleman cooler and put in spray foam as there was no insulation and he said that made a big difference. I usually line the top of my Cooler with newspaper and I also wrap my frozen food in Newspaper.

    I have the RTIC basically same as the Yeti.

    I shot a hog in Florida on a Thursday afternoon in 90 degree heat quartered and put it on ice immediately. Got home on Sunday and finally butchered it on Monday. Still had a ton of ice remaining and the meat was perfect. Worth it all day long!!

    yeti coolers, and many other roto moulded coolers work very well. With yeti, you pay 2x the cost for the name. If you want the status buy a yeti, if you just want stuff to stay cold, buy a roto moulded cooler. Still pricy, but not as insane as yeti.
    My buddy spent $35 on a yeti can koozie, I got a free one in a case of budlight. He was convinced his was significantly better. But a laser temp sensor proved they both worked equally well. And they do work very well, but I like the price of mine much more.

    Yetis are definitely worth the money. I've got the Tundra 65 in the tan colour and love it.

    Use it for drinks and food in the Spring/Summer while camping, and I use it in the back of the truck for waterfowl in the Fall.

    friend of mine brought his for fishing last year. I could not believe how cold it kept things.

    but I never got one cause of the price, could never justify it, cost of going back home to get more ice was lower lol

    so reading comments here got me interested again, what are some of the other roto moulded cooler out there ?

    We used to go Moose hunting in Quebec with Argo for 8 days.
    My buddy had a yeti, I had a Coleman extreme and the other two guys had cheaper coolers.
    The cheap coolers didn’t last too long.
    When we went for a beer/ice run mid week the Coleman extreme had a smaller chunk of ice left then the Yeti but they both needed ice. These two had the meat eggs and milk etc.
    The Yeti was a better cooler but I’m sticking with Coleman extreme. Cheaper to buy ice imo.
    The main thing is to place the cooler in a shady area out of direct sunlight. The other thing is to close the top properly. Try to pack things that you only open one cooler at a time.

    Instead of ice you could fill old water jugs, water or pop bottles 90% with water,and freeze them at home.Then use the water for camp needs when thawed out....no mess in the cooller,and cheap.

    I happen to have a PT job working in a small hunting and fishing store.

    We just got a few roto molded coolers in from Calcutta Outdoors.

    Have to admit, in a side by side comparison with the Yeti, they seem to have the same build quality and attention to detail. Price point is slightly less.

    They also retail on Amazon.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.
