    Looks good! I would be interested in it, but I already have 3 Yetis.

    I’ve heard nothing but good things about the ozark trail coolers from Walmart. I had one of the cups and it was just as good as my yeti

    But is it bear proof, more than once I have had to recover a cooler or food canister from somewhere other than where I left it due to some beast playing with them while we were sleeping or out and about.

    According to the web site it is bear proof (not sure anything is really bear proof, just bear resistant). But made in the USA and about the same price as Ozark Trail...... wish I would have known about this before I bought my Ozark...... nice find!!

    Not interested. I mean, really...what would a Squatch do with a Yeti?

    I have a 95 quart Pelican brand cooler that I used on a trip and I was amazed how well ice lasted. Haven't used it in 2 years so if anyone needs a huge ass cooler I'd sell it for $300. $500 new. 95QT_Canvas_Studio_2048x2048.png

    I'll take my coleman anywhere. I don't need an overpriced/overweight cooler for fishing or camping.

    They all look interesting, but in Arizona, nothing is good for more than a day trip. In the off weather, I can use a plug in cooler, and it works pretty good, but in the summer, I have to use my trailer with a fridge. Although I haven't tried an actual Yeti, I haven't found anything that works for more than a day and finding ice in the woods is hard most days. Besides a dorm fridge is cheaper than a Yeti, if you already have an inverter gen.
