For anyone who might be considering a Yeti cooler, don't overlook the Cabela's Alaskan Guide Grizzly series (which appears to be made by Yeti).

The Cabela's versions have a different configuration and color (I like the Cabela's ones better), and come in some different sizes than Yeti (probably so as not to directly compete, size for size). They otherwise appear close to same.

And at least if either were purchased per Cabela's, their version is usually less expensive.
http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabelas-A...ch-All+Products

Cabela's version is available in a 60-qt, 150-qt, and an absolute monster 400-qt.

The 400-qt ONLY weighs 90 lbs, empty. ;\)

My brother in law got one and is saying it doesn't even keep ice cold!

Was he following the manufacturer's instruction of pre-cooling it down before use?

When you have this much insulation, it can actually work against you, particularly if you store your cooler in a hot shed (causing the insulation to be the same temp as that hot shed). To provide superior, longer-lasting cooling, these coolers must be "pre-cooled".

Did you watch the test video? You mean to tell me that you wouldn't have another cooler even if it were lighter, held ice longer and was significantly cheaper?

Is your cheap little Coleman cooler Grizzly proof?

I bought my 3 Yeti coolers on the very real possibility that a one ton grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) would migrate from Canada or Alaska (an escape from a zoo is something I considered as well), cunningly search out my wife's mini-van at the soccer field one Saturday, deftly defy the security system in said van, open the back hatch, try to open my Yeti (that was pre-cooled and filled with ice 7 days prior), and steal my cold beer.

He's got a real surprise coming...

Edit Reason: added scientific name so that there was no confusion about those girly Black Bears that eat Coleman coolers

I recently got a 70 qt Coleman extreme and so far I love it and it holds ice plenty long although I haven't pre cooled or tested number of days yet. For the money (less than 40 bucks) its a great cooler and I'm not usually one to need anything fancy anyway. I see yeti coolers at places like the fly shop where customers regularly spend ridiculous amount of money on their gear ;\)

I use cheap Coleman coolers, not even the extreme, and when I need to keep something cold or frozen I go to Krogers and buy a block of dry ice. Wrap it in a towel and then place whatever on top of it followed by ice. Never had a problem but then again I haven't ever needed ice in a cooler for 7-10 days either. Just saying.....

6 days. Specs and Reds.

Port Fourchon, LA. 95+/- degrees.

Pre-cooled Yeti and I had the best coolers. All three.

Funny anecdote:

Guide uses four YETI's... On his two 30' boats.

Take my info FWIW. I work my stuff, not talk about it...

Good luck guys.
