    $800. Yikes, for that price it better be solar powered cooling so the ice never melts.

    I actually like it. It’s a bit out of my price range though. If it was in the 350 ballpark I would get one.

    Just sit tight, the RTIC copy of this will be $350.

    How much is an equivalent-sized refrigerator, and generator to power it?

    This! Except Coleman already re-made that one. Readily available at Academy 24/7. Bought my dad one 10+ years ago for a Fathers Day present. That’s back when $80 was a lot for an ice chest. 
  • I've had one for several years. These clowns with their $800 price tag. Pishh. Get on my level.

    Dang just looked up both Igloo and Coleman versions and they are sitting at $200, still a far cry from $800.  Memory says Dads was Copper not SS.  I remember the move from St Louis to Houston him putting freezer stuff in it and teaching me about dry ice.

    No way SWMBO allows that in the house especially after fully replacing gas and electric lawn stuff with EGO batter powered.  Wait she mentioned letting College Daughter take a cooler back with her... hmmmmm

    At the price I could buy a generator and an ice machine.

    I could pay someone to go get ice several times over saving on ice in this.  But I cant blame Yeti, its an ingenious way of helping people let go of $800 they didn't need anyway.

    Yeti can **** right off. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Best cooler I've ever owned is metal clad, so maybe Yeti is on to something.  Question whether theirs is $790. better than mine.

    Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American consumer.

    The only thing missing from that picture is a Weber kettle, a bag of Old Diz or Kingsford charcoal and a bottle of Gulf lighter fluid. That would sure enough be a flashback my friend.

    I've had a few Coleman lanterns and stoves.  Being a poor cheapskate, I always just burned gasoline in them.  Works just the same.

    Back in the 70’s we used Texaco Fire Chief gasoline in them. The gas was white and leaded. Haven’t tried the stuff they call gas today. But I could see it working.

    @SSG You forgot the lantern.  🙂
    Do I get docked points for not having Gulf brand?

    I was more than certain that you had the lantern to compliment the stove and cooler 👍

    No; Texaco has a cleaner taste.

    Seems like it would dent and scratch too easily for a backyard cooler. Give me plastic all day, errday.

    Not me. I am on Yeti probation with the wife.  I’m attending regular meetings down at the Yeti Center. I got some nice sh!t though. 
    How is the rehab going with the Honda Generators?

    You do have some cool Yeti, CI, Audio, shït and the best Bloody Maries too.

    It doesn't look very big for $800.
