We are looking for a new, high quality cooler, 25-45 qt. size rang. Looked at Grizzly, also heard about another brand nICE. Any thoughts on alternative coolers with similar design and construction to Yeti?

In tests, Coleman Marine Extreme performs as well or better than Yeti and some other much more expensive brands. I've had mine about ten years.


Eh...wot?

Check out Rugid coolers, they have a 5-year warranty and replaceable components in case you bust something.

SMAK plastics, Fish Box. If you ever need a large Yeti alternative.

I just bought a “FATBOY" 75Qt. direct from their website. $210 with free shipping.

They are made in China. But very solid built.

I have a “Cold Bass Turd” (had to play with words there) and I love it. Holds ice for a week, was cheaper and very quality construction.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Ice really ain't that expensive.

I have an rtic 20 and would not recommend it. The handle is poor and pops off easily. The larger versions have better handles. Does it keeps ice longer than a cheap coleman. . . .yes, but I doubt this one could make it the week or so they say.

I have a nICE and a Kong. I like them both and they are just as good as a yeti for half the price.

Good point. The Coleman Marine Extreme insulates every bit as well as the Yeti but weighs about half in comparable sizes. More interior space too.

Orca is made in U.S.A. and they like outdoorsman for what it's worth.

Is Coleman not trapper/hunter friendly?
Pretty sure they are USA made and as mentioned above in more than one test out performed all the yuppie coolers.
