    I ordered the 145 quart. Thought it was a great deal compared to others of comparable size.

    Someone on here has more tractors than I have cars. And I have 5 cars. I will say 3 of those are sh!t piles (young drivers). This person's best tractor is probably worth more than all 5 of my cars put together.

    Is it the persons farm equipment or a collection? Context matters, farm equipment is a business asset, collection is more like actual wealth.

    Like the Rtic's, still have a hard time dropping that much on a cooler even if it's significantly less than other brands.  What do you guys use your's for so much that makes it worth it?

    Great question. To some degree it's certainly hard to justify the price of a rotomolded cooler simply at face value. However they certainly have their place.
    For instance, not everyone has a home generator. During power outages the rotomolded coolers can be a real life saver. When properly packed, some of them can keep food cool up to 10 days if they are not opened often. They can keep ice beyond this if they are not opened at all until needed. I know it's not often that we face these types of circumstances, but it's always good to be prepared. For example, look at Florida right now. I bet there are many folks having to depend on some type of cooler at this very moment. Sadly they may be depending on it for weeks to come. 
    Also my coolers spend a lot of time in the direct sun. Rotomolded coolers hold up much better than traditional coolers to UV rays. Again, this is not a problem for everyone, but it certainly is to some. 
    At the end of the day, not everyone needs a rotomolded cooler. We got bye just fine for centuries without them. However, like a lot of modern convenances, (cell phone, ATM cards) they sure can make life easier at times.  
    And last, but certainly not least, for lot of folks it's not even a need. It's a want. And as you probably already know all to well, sometimes our wants out weigh our needs.

    The best reason I have seen is durability.  Guys that hunt, fish or use them for work everyday love them.  Other brands like coleman, igloo, or whatever, seem to break or crack, or you are constantly replacing the hinges or clips because the break with constant use.  With a yeti, RTIC, or rotomolded coolers, the only time you will have to replace them is when they are stolen.  

    So in theory, over the life of the cooler, it is actually cheaper than buying replacement coolers or parts every couple of years for high use coolers.

    Another good use is long hunting or fishing trips.  If you have a cooler with meat and keep it closed, it makes a big difference on how long you can keep your meat without needing more ice.

    Glad to hear you ordered the big one. That's a great idea brother Grim. I was thinking along the same lines. With the big one mounted to the trailer, it would omit the need to haul several smaller ones around. 
    On a seperate note, hope all is well my friend.

    Brother Grim, next year we will be ordering the 250 quart, the year after that the 350 quart, then the 400 quart. It just never seems to end. Oh well, life is short. Might as well enjoy it.

    I think this will be as big as I ever go. We'll see. But I can't imagine ever being willing to wrestle with anything bigger unless it's already built into a boat or something.

    So there is no chance of me talking you into a 1,100 quart :D

    Brother Horn, it would be very useful for that sort of thing. The biggest problem with it would be trying to load it on a truck or trailer if you did not have a tractor or forklift. There is no telling what it would weigh loaded down. It's a handful empty. But you are correct, it would be great for that sort of thing.

    Yeah, it would probably take both of us to lift that thing when it's fully loaded.

    We had one down there at OBR. Was definitely a valuable asset to have. We had "sonic" ice in this one and it kept it perfect for the days I was there. Definitely a fork lift type situation with that one.
