I know they are insanely expensive but are they worth it? If not, is their a mid level brand that works well?

Screw Yeti...if you wanna go the cheaper route, get a BUBBA brand from Walmart...

Other higher prices brands that can work are Bison, Orca and Pelican.

Then, a couple hours later, my dermatologist called to tell me I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma and needed to come in to have it removed. I don't think it's a huge deal but definitely squashed my excitement. Anyone here dealt with one?


Make sure the surgeon is MOHS certified (https://www.skincancer.org/skin-cancer-information/mohs-surgery), and get ALL of it .. it's a HUGE deal and be greatful you can enjoy that raise for years to come. I had one removed in 2004. Skin cancer is a very silent killer, and usually reasons for other types of cancers to developer.


Thanks. I checked their site and the place I'm going lists and has a lot of information about MOHs surgery so I should be good!

Yeah... No way I'd spend that kind of money on a cooler. Especially for the occasional outdoor weekend.

We don't camp much but we do ride every weekend. I don't need it to last overnight....just through the day.

one of my buddies has an R-Tic one that he really likes...its not quite as expensive as YETI

I would buy 10 Coleman coolers before I would buy 1 Yeti.

I don't care if it keeps my beer ice cold in death valley for 3 weeks. It's still a waste of money.

For just a day trip, I like those canvas ones just fine. They're a lot more portable. I have one that even has wheels and a handle to pull it with.

Looks something like this and costs like $50...

Huh, no ****?...we got one (last year I think) it's shaped like a keg and has wheels...freakin thing is awesome...

Edit (more info): just saw the one we have in Walmart..$56...it's a 2 in 1..drinks and ice in 1 compartment, food in the other (so you don't get those soggy sandwiches )...has wheels so it's easy to pull..

LOVE this thing...took it to the beach everyday last year when in Ocean City..

I'm right here ... I don't need a holder to keep coffee hot that long, I drink mine thanks. I also don't camp, boat, or hunt.

I am sure I will change my mind if I needed a cooler for 3 days [say hurricane season]. but NO

I'm sure they're awesome coolers. I just don't feel like I'd get $400 worth of utility out of one.

It comes down to what you use them for. If it was for three hours at a park, what I have now is more than fine and I wouldn't be shopping around. But several times this year already in the 100 degree heat the cheap cooler simply can't function good enough. I have done zero research on different types of coolers that's why I'm asking the awesome LOW folks. If there is something that can handle my needs for $50 I'll take it. If not then I'll go to $100 .... etc etc. I can get the $350 for about $225 because one of my buddies owns a boat store. If there is something as good for cheaper, i'm down. I'll use the savings filling it with beer :)

Ours kept ice all day...and we camped when we went down there, so the ice would go in around 7am and still be solid as hell at 5 after a day on the beach...we kept sandwiches and stuff on top, no issues with sogginess or spoilage..

If you want a soft cooler like the Yeti(I have one and it's ok) I've heard nothing but good things about this Polar Bear cooler...

I'm not really making fun but just pointing out irony. A guy drowned in Tallahassee over the weekend. That guy's name? Patrick Salmon.

I went to that festival a couple years ago in Maryland. It was possibly the best festival I have ever been to. The free food lines were long as hell. But we had 4 guys. One guy would wait on line, the other 3 would go to the bourbon table right across. They were pouring Bookers, Bakers, and the other 2 that go along with them. We'd grab a couple shots of each, go to the line, then go back to the table.

You're going to have a great time.

Good to hear. I'm looking forward to it. I've been to all the more local ones, multiple times, so I'm ready for something different.
