I broke my third coleman cooler, so.....

I bought a YETI,  45 quart, ICE Blue, this should stand up to the oil field use.  Now off to buy a lock so It doesn't walk away.

    Cool! I see the hasp for the padlock, but will you be chaining it to something as well?

    Reminds me of the home safes sold advertising how strong they are etc, but never mention a 12 year old kid can walk away with it padlock and all!

    You'll love it. If I pre-cool mine with a sacrificial bag of ice and throw already chilled beer in it, it will hold ice for 7 days and keep beer below 40 degrees for another two days with water.

    Yes to the bed of the truck, I changed the tie down bracket this morning so I can secure it to the truck.

    Sweet! Yeti sells a cable lock as an accessory. Made by Master I think.

    They also sell a ss bottle opener which looks like it screws right into the body of the cooler. Want to get one for my Pelican 45, but I'm a bit skittish about screwing something into it.

    I have notice the great ice retention, this will be great for water, as a single empty beer can on a drill site will get you canned, I will only be using it for water, and my lunch, most of the time, but, when I do my semi-annual trips to Mexico, I am certain it will have plenty of cervesa time.. 

    As for the lock, I went to the hardware store and bought the cable lock for considerably less, than the Yeti, one, same master lock.

    Yeah, I figured it would be far cheaper without the Yeti brand. Saw the BGE branded grid lifter for $37 at the dealer. Same thing was $15 on Amazon!

    Dopey me. I was going to ask why a single beer would get you hammered on a drill site. Then I got it.

  • It will handle a lot of abuse.  I have 2.  When I show them off to people, I jump up and down on it.  I was almost 300 pounds this summer, so that's pretty abusive.  I have friends that are farmers that keep theirs in the back of their trucks full time.  5 and 6 years with no damage to them.  I also have a friend that flipped his truck with his in the back.  Truck was totaled, but the Yeti just had a few scratches on it.

  • My 65 quart YETI is the 2nd best item I've ever bought for myself, next to my Large BGE.  
  • I am amazed no one has commented on the custom stickers...

    Yeti. Nice. Really would like one of those. The Mrs. Doesn't understand why I'm searching the web for coolers when it's 9 degrees out. Maybe she has a point. I think I'll pick up an A.R. First....

  • I've got the Yeti Roadie. Thought it would be easy to take anywhere. However, fully loaded with ice and drinks it's like 20lbs. I find myself using my Coleman more! Unfortunately.
