Default Coolers: Any preference Yeti vs Grizzly?

Figured I'd get more response in this forum rather than gear review forum. Considering getting a 150 qt for elk...Grizzly is a good bit cheaper...never had either one before...

Any thoughts?

I like my Yeti. Its tough as nails. If you are just going to use it this one time, I would just say get a cheaper one. Another thing, Yetis are HEAVY. My 45 full is about all one person can handle. I haven't used it enough to say about how long it will hold ice. (its put up for chirstmas persent) Thats all I got!

Check out Engel coolers. More insulation than the competition. If youre interested I can get you a really good deal on one.

I have a 120 qt. Coleman xtreme and it will hold ice for three solid days provided you keep from opening it to much which is the key to any cooler anyway. I paid somewhere around $60.00 for it at Walmart some years back. I love it

I've got a 120qt igloo I put 5 20lb bags of ice in Monday around lunch. As of last night there was less than a 1/4" of water in the bottom of the cooler.

The last thing i want to worry about is someone stealing a $500 cooler out of the back of my truck....Igloo & Coleman are plenty good for me.

I have a 250 qt yeti that I use on week long hunting or fishing trips. It will hold 8-9 deer quartered and deboned packed in ice and holds ice for about 5 days. I have had this cooler for about 6 years and haven't had any problems out of it.

I'm sure they have there place and are well made just can't see paying that much for a cooler ice is readily avaiable where I hunt at.. I have the Coleman extreme 5 day works great. Igloo has a like model aswell ! I have enough to worry about dont to add a high dollar cooler to it

appeared that the video was sponsored by engel and irp. i am with the others who made comments about starting temps and real world conditions. i dont have a high end cooler, but my broinlaw has a yeti and it catches pure h3ll without missing a lick. i like em.

I'd never spend the money for a Yeti, but I sure as heck didn't turn down the one I got for my birthday. Love that I can take it on the boat, stand on it, sit on it, you name it with no worries about the lid caving. That thing is rock solid. On the other hand, it doesn't ride around in the back of the truck like my Colemans do because I don't want somebody with sticky fingers getting the urge to yank it. No clue on how long it'll legitimately keep ice, but I like it. Tough as nails.
