    Like Deer Hunter said, I still have both of my Coleman Extreme coolers, medium and large and they keep items frozen or cold depending on how much ice you put in there. Dry ice in a Coleman extreme will last more than a week unless you're in there every ten minutes like some people in front of a fridge who think it's an entertainment center.

    they are fantastic coolers, but there are lots that are just as good (identical in fact), just not with the yeti name. You pay more for that, and that's great if its what you want, but they aren't better at the "keeping things cold" aspect.
    There have been lots of side by side comparisons done with the knock off brands that prove it. Although the knock off brands are still expensive they are cheaper than Yeti.

    The walmart roto cooler and the valley coolers that princess auto puts on sale from time to time are very comparable.

    Good rundown on some other top quality coolers here.
    Whatever you do, pre chill your cooler before loading it, it makes a significant difference. I always load mine with some ice the night before, dump that before loading cold contents and new ice. Easily adds 2 days to my cooler use at the cottage.

    I was camping last week and took a cheap coleman. I froze a couple freezer bags of ice, put them in there. then filled with beer and food. Still had ice when I got home 3 days later. Blocks of ice will last a lot longer then cubes, surface area is the difference. The jug idea is a great idea.

    Yes. We fill and freeze pop bottles and use that every weekend at the camp.

    Cabelas has their roto moulded coolers on sale. I’ve also read some good reviews from lifetime coolers. Still haven’t decided.

    Iíve got a yeti 65 and a pelican 75. The pelican was cheaper, they both hold ice about the same. The yeti is more compact for packing in the truck, it doesnít have big handles or anything like the pelican does.
    If I was going to do it again Iíd find one of the roto coolers that are built/look similar to a yeti at a cheaper cost and buy that. The Cabelas one is similar to my pelican with huge handles.
    I would get a 75 or bigger

    Go to the dollar store and buy a couple of those reflective bubble style windshield sun screens. A roll of Tuck tape, scissors and a measuring tape and make a cover that fits over the cooler. My wife made some for each of our coolers and they work great at adding more insulation from the suns rays. We also throw an old blanket over them and keep them in the shade.

    I've used the blanket trick a lot especially working out of town I'd have my weeks worth of food in the truck bed every Monday, trying to keep it sheltered from the sun. I also would lay my heavy canvas tarp on top to reflect and insulate.

    COOLER ALERT

    Costco has LIFETIME brand roto molded coolers in Guelph.
    75 can (65 quarts )capacity.
    5 year warranty/ 8 day ice retention claim.

    Has all the bells and whistles "any"rotomolded cooler has.

    Even my wife(who does not care much for these things) was impressed.

    199.99 $.
    As far i can see in this thread-that is a pretty darn good deal.
    If i would need one-i would be already owning one today!

    With 2 full size available Coleman/Igloo coolers,hard to justify.

    Plus-Costco has the "best"return policy...........if one is unhappy with the product-voila.

    UPDATE-after sub search it turns out ,these are Blow molded ,not roto molded.
    Yet-Web search claims, they meet roto molded cooler performance.
