True story. My bro has one, and put food and ice in it and left florida for Missouri. Its the biggest yeti not sure the number but its a monster one. Loaded it up oct 29th and returned home in fl nov 19th and still had ice in it from that fla ice machine. Unreal. Dont get me wrong it was cold every night, but that made me buy one !
I was looking at one at my local bow shop early last year. I made a joke about how expensive they were. A guy there said he had one and loved it. He said he can keep ice for a week here in our Missouri summers which are usually 90-95 degrees. He said the trick is to cool them down before putting ice in. He said he freezes a milk jig with water in it. He then places the frozen jug in a day before he plans to use it. He said if you don’t cool it down first some of your ice will melt trying to cool the inside of the cooler down from the temp it was stored at to 32 degrees. He said they work just as good for keeping food hot.
Thanks I’ve been wanting to get one for hunting and The family trips . It’s funny I look at one and think well just for a few more dollars I can get the next size up.its just a lot of money and thanks for the help.
Thing is, you have to buy a much bigger one than you would a regular cooler to have the same volume inside of the cooler because the insulation is so thick. But the comments about working well are correct.

last year in Idaho. my buddy poops money so he bought TWO yeti coolers. a big one and a smaller one.
my brother bought two high$$ chest as well. a Grizzly and an Engel.
i had two cheap Ultra Igloos. the challenge was set!!
i knew i was disadvantaged, so i prefroze EVERYTHING!! two day drive to idaho and on week of opening and closing. you know what? the igloos hang tough!! ice stayed just as long. sure, my hinge broke! but it hung..if i had to pick a winner, i would give the nod to the Engel. ice really lasted. the best thing about the Yeti was the surface. super smooth and easy to wipe clean. the grizzly was textured and looked grimy after a long 10 day hunt. my friend took his yeti stickers and stuck them on my igloos. so i look like a poseur. funny as heck.
downside? they are so heavy. loaded up, it is a two-man move. the grizzly chest was the only bear proof (Certified) one in our group..we put the beer in that one.
