    From what I understand is the guys that started yeti coolers sold out to a foreign entity a couple years before the patents went out. Then once anyone could use the process and there wouldn't be a patent infringement they started making coolers under rtic and undercutting yetis prices. Kinda brilliant if it's true.

    Just bought the lifetime Walmart and it’s a day and a half in 85 deg. heat. BS for the price. My soft side will do that!

    3AF80318-4BEC-484A-961F-D873B3047EFE.png I have been using my Coleman extreme for years. It holds ice great! Only problem was I was tired of my water sloshing out so I needed to get something with a seal. I got this 25 qt dewalt cooler for 85.25 shipped. If they would have had the life time 26 out at the time I would have just got one of those.

    You have to pre-cool the fancy coolers they have a lot more thermal mass to them.

    Not saying they are best used for beer coolers but they work really well for storing cold food for a long time.

    We fill pre-cool an orca and fill it with frozen food and leave it on the deck at the beach for 3-4 days and everything is still frozen.

    If you REALLY want it to stay cold for a long while, pre-cool it with reg ice, drain and then put dry ice in the bottom with a layer of regular ice on top and food on top of that. If you don't open it all the time a whole week isn't unheard of on a boat.

    You can do this with a cheap cooler and duct tape, done this many times to Canada and back!

    Don't care what you use, Yeti. or S.HITI but saying it doesn't work because you didn't read the directions doesn't mean it doesn't work.

    I agree CP, they are tough as hell which is half the reason I bought mine.

    I hate to be that guy but I’m calling bulls#*t on that claim. I put ice in my yeti Thursday morning at the Takeover and threw some water and beers in there and rode all day. We restocked it once a day and added half of a 5lb bag of ice to top it back off on Saturday and I still had ice the Friday after getting back. If you’re really opening that cooler multiple times and hour she’s going to need ice around day three if it’s like my tundra 35. The advantage of a big cooler is it can hold way more ice and I can tell you my tundra 75 will outlast my 35 on ice retention. Oh and I don’t pre chill anything, real use.

    Wife gave me a Yeti 8 years ago and it still works as new. It lived through a lot of rough riding Rhino years.
