    Default Coolers...Yeti vs Grizzly

    First of all, are they even worth the money? If so, which is the better value?

    Thanks!

    If I were in your situation I would buy both of them in multiple sizes just to see which fit me better. lol

    I don't own one but have looked at them. They're heavy, normal sized on the outside, but pretty small on the inside with the thicker insulation.

    I decided to buy ice more often and kept my old cooler.

    I have a couple of yetti's. As posted previously, heavy and relatively small capacity due to significantly thicker sides/insulation. For general use, not worth the expense and weight. Also, if you are going to be routinely opening the lid, the extra insulation does not do a lot of good. However, for long hunting trips where you need to store subsantial provisions and "buy more ice" is not an option, very hard to beat. I have gone on week long duck hunting trips in south louisiana where we camp in the marsh for a week and still had frozen food/ice when we hit the dock.

    Look at Brute outdoors for a comparison to Yeti. Great product.

    Get a coleman extreme. Less than half the price and keeps ice longer. Field and stream (or one of the outdoor mags) did a test and Coleman extreme won easily.

    I have owned and used a Yeti now for the last 2 years and would not trade it for any other cooler. Granted it is expensive but have gotten a great deal of use out of mine, and would recommend it to you if you can get a size that works for you.

    Defiantly not a status symbol. I've been a saltwater fishing guide for close to 20 years. I've gone through dozens of Coleman and igloo coolers. People sitting on them and they finally cave in standing on them as well. Then stopping every morning wether I have to or not just to get ice. Have had a Yeti now for a couple years one for the boat one for the truck. Problems solved, like the ads say "it will be the last cooler you'll ever own" if nothing else they are tuff and they do hold ice longer.
