I own a YETI and as far as"Wildly Stronger" couldn't be more true...I'm a heavy weight, 400#'s, and use my YETI's to stand on while fishing. It don't have any flaws in the strength department. The "Keeps Ice Longer" is total BS...Igloo works just as well at keeping ice IMO. When you open coolers over and over the ice is gonna melt.

I've had several over the years...started with the 45qt ...won a 85qt so I sold the 45qt ...finally sold the 85qt and went down a few notches and have had the 65qt for several years now...

They are heavy SOBs ...but they are very rugged and durable. They don't hold ice as advertised but they do hold ice longer than your average/typical cooler.

In my opinion, they are worth it simply do to the fact of their durability

Finally spent some time with a Yeti at a grandson's birthday party yesterday, and what I noticed most about it was that I had to open it over and over for kids and gals who couldn't. Might be great for some things, but sure didn't seem too handy for what ice chests generally do the most of.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

they do have a tight seal. sometimes you have to loosen the drain to get a yeti open....

Hi guys this is my first post... First off ill start by saying that the yetis are great for durability and are great coolers... Ive had the privilige to use them on jobsites.. but i went with the coleman extreme instead and within a week i thought i had made a mistake... I was pulling a 32' gooseneck to work that day and my new cooler got pinched sometime during the trip... when i noticed it ,my lid was had a big crease right down the middle of it i thought id just threw away 50$ but about an hour later i went back to the truck for a drink and the cooler had repaired its self .... To this day there is no sign of it... But after a few months of hard use i have to say that the coleman is a very durable cooler itself ... We will see how the hinges hold up over time though

I often have to that with the Engel. The seal is crazy tight
