    Looks like the Coleman is just as good for 1/4 the price from the video.

    Bought a Brute cooler about a year ago. Like advertised, it holds ice for at least 3 days.
    I like the convenience of not having to buy ice every day on a trip, and yeah I know it's expensive, but it's a one time purchase.

    I purchased a Yeti last year and traveled multiple weekends during the summer for a bunch of FT's and was very pleased with the cooler! Much better than my previous run of the mill cooler! Looking forward to using agin this summer if it ever warms up!

    I have a 50qt Yeti that I use for trials and weekend training. They are extremely well built and hold ice reasonably well. In Florida/South Georgia you still need to add ice over a 3 day weekend during the summer. If I were getting a new ice chest I would consider an Engel. I saw a head to head test between the two and the Engel won by a considerable margin. The other brand that looks promising and is less expensive is the K2 line of coolers.

    Take a look a Pelican. Better made that Yeti and less expensive.

    Any ice chest you have to lock up to keep from walking off is a waste of money. Coleman extreme is good and it doesn't need a cable lock to stay in the back of your truck. Not good for fishing but works for beer very well.

    Love my Ducks Unlimited Yeti. (Best part is that I won it in a online/tv contest from them, perfect price!)

    My wife ask the ultimate question, "will you put training birds in it?" , I didn't get a Yeti. Also they aren't bear proof if they are hungry. I've seen 2 now that grizzlies opened.

    If you're interested in one of the upper end coolers, I highly recomend the ORCA coolers. Same design aspects as the Yeti, but they are MADE IN AMERICA. Not China like the yeti. Yeti coolers are measured by their outside volume instead of inside like the ORCA. I am a dealer for ORCA, so I will say that I am biased. However I was an original user of Yeti coolers and made the switch because they were a superior product to me. If you are interested, email me and I will try to work up a special for forum members.
