Yeti Cooler-What size?

Postby smcolvar » Wed May 22, 2013 6:57 am

I am buying a yeti cooler for my boyfriend. He LOVES to duck hunt.

What is an ideal size that he could take with him on his hunts?

Thank you!

I have a 35 and I wish every time I use it that i'd got the 45 or 65. Get one size bigger than you think he'll need

I would recommend an Engel Deep Blue over the Yeti first off. I use the 80 quart and everyone at camp loves it. Even Yeti owners.

I have a 65 qt Yeti and think it is the best size. However, it will almost take up the whole trunk of my girlfriend's Grand Cherokee. Unless he has a pickup it might be too big to transport.

I second the Engel Deep Blue, I got a 65 on Blackfriday when MPWs had them on sale 20 percent off. I would suggest you google yeti vs engel and read the test results. Check out the tests on you tube. Engel out performed yeti and also costs less. I was looking at a yeti first and ended up buying the engel and glad I did. Hope this helps, yeti makes a good cooler but your going to pay for all their marketing.

Get the 65 qt. Perfect all around size. If you go any bigger it becomes a pain to lift up on the tailgate when it is fully loaded with drinks (refreshments) and ice. I have had two deer (does) quartered with plenty of ice in the 65 qt. Oh, and you are a great girlfriend. My wife bought mine for me.

Yeti 45 is what I have as I didn't want a huge cooler to lug around.

My wife just got me the yeti 65 and I love it. Perfect size. The 75 was to big for the boat and hauling around for other things.

I have three of them and my favorite is the 50 Quart. Plenty of room but not back breaking heavy!

Tundra 45, don't want to pick up bigger sizes fully loaded. Unless he will have someone to help him lug it around

For those using the 50qt, I'm guessing you're breasting out the birds? What size cooler do you think would be needed for a limit(4) of mallards without them being breasted out, and a few breasted Canada geese?

I got the 75qt. I think it is the best for what I do. I put it on the front of boat and use it as a fishing plat form as well.

Another nod for the 65.
