It's sitting in the kitchen now (Monday) with LOTS of ice still in it.
Yeah, I think we'll keep it.
P.S. yeah, we kept it locked up.
same here....locked and loaded my yeti 65 with about 45 various beverages and 25lbs of ice.....this was on thurs aug 29th....cooler rode in truck bed or sat by my camper the whole time....temps were in upper 90s day and mid 40s night...as of this morning (sept 4th) there was still a layer of ice 2 inches thick and very cold water under that...its still in the back of the truck....im gonna leave it a few more days and see how long it goes..
the same 25lbs in my igloo roller cheapie was half melted by friday (the 30th) afternoon and only a few cubes left by the end of the day on the 1st
the igloo yukon, actually was on par with the yeti....but by today only had cold water in it....
an interesting but non scientific comparison.....at the end of the day, cost aside, i got what i wanted....CONVENIENCE .....filled the yeti/yukon with ice and didnt need to add more or mess with it the rest of the trip.....we can sit and argue over cheaper ways to solve the ice problem , but given my wants and desires, im perfectly happy with what i have and do not regret their purchase.
