Yeti hooked me!I finally broke down and bought a Yeti. I stressed more than I should about what size and turns out, the 45 is perfect. A cousin has several, some kept in the back of trucks (feed trucks, fuel trucks etc.) and they’re indestructible but he admitted the 65 he has on one is way too big and regrets not getting the 45.In the past I’ve had Coleman Extreme’s which I thought were awesome. They’re several years old now and just don’t seem to keep cold like they did, and may have slightly changed shape so they don’t close tight like they did.My wife came in and saw this and freaked. It was worth it though. First time using it, opening weekend, I first put a little (1 bag) ice and cold drinks etc. in it on Thursday, after having it inside and with a 1 gallon jug of ice to pre-chill overnight. I didn’t fill it with ice until Friday evening and kept the Yeti in the back of my Excursion, which got somewhat warm as it warmed up for the weekend.Fast forward to the next Wednesday, 4+ days later, all water of course with a few cold beverages still left. I checked the temp of the water and it was still 39*. I cleared it out and the next day I dumped the water and dried it to put up. The water had jumped up about 15*.That’s way beyond what I expected, especially it not being left closed, but being opened and closed all week.Are they expensive? Yes and no. Yes, they’re a lot more than Coleman, or Igloo etc. But performance is light-years ahead. As far as build quality comparison, again, no comparison. The Yeti is build like a tank, and every tolerance is tight and functional.So in the long run, they’re I don’t think they’re expensive at all. They’re a great value and I can believe, Bear proof, and ranch trucks bed bouncing proof. You’ll make up the cost difference in the cost of ice you’ll recoup!FYI, I had no idea, but Yeti recommends using rock salt as an alternative to keeping ice even colder. Or dry ice, although I’d be afraid I’d stick my hand in there! Other than being careful where you dump salty water when done, I think the extreme cold, slightly slushy beer thing might be worth a shot!I’m a believer!!

Ice for 60 hours, even with temps at 110F – wow.I deep froze some ice “slabs” using a 9″x13″ baking dish and also a bread pan, this gave me a 2″+ thick layer of -20F ice at the bottom. I then threw in a bunch of drinks and food from the fridge, which had all been chilled, but not frozen. I then forgot to fill in the remaining gaps with ice, so that was a missed opportunity – next time!We went camping in a crazy heat wave, the other three families we were going with bailed when they saw the weather forecast, daytime temperatures in Yosemite managed to hit over 110F each day, and night time temperature, even by 11pm was still 80F. The Yeti stayed in the NPS bear box at the campground in direct sunlight for much of the day – the metal bear box in the sunlight was so hot it would burn your skin by 10am!But the Yeti was amazing, we had ice for at least 60 hours, and it was still very cold water at 72hours. Had I tried this with my old cooler I doubt the ice would have made it even 24 hours.
Perfect size and durability!Bought this for son who is a fishing guide to keep on his boat for clients drinks and lunches. It is the perfect size and seals nicely and keeps thing cold!

Way too expensiveI bought this cooler because I have an off cabin in New Hampshire, and I need to keep my food cold for a week at a time. I followed all of the instructions that came with the cooler, and placed a digital thermostat inside. This cooler could barely maintain temps cooler than 55 degrees, which is no better than a cooler that I bought at Wal Mart for ten dollars. It is rugged and sturdy, there is no question about that, but I don’t intend to throw it off a bridge, and that’s not really why I bought it. I bought it so I wouldn’t be running to my neighbors house every two days to freeze ice packs. Any cooler that you put 20 soda cans and 22 pounds of ice into is going to perform well.All in all, I’d say I paid 315.00 too much for this cooler.
