Default Yeti vs Engel vs Coleman Extreme

I came across this cooler test comparing the Yeti, Engel and Coleman Extreme and thought it might be helpful to some.

Thanks for the link.

I own a Coleman Extreme and am impressed. I took the same bag of ice to the lease 3 times this year.

Never heard of engel, but the results were on par with what I've heard about the coleman and yeti's.

I love my 48 qt. coleman cooler, probably the best one I've ever owned.

Man that's tough to drop that much for a stinking ice chest! I'm for good equipment, but I'm not there for a cooler, yet.

I think you have to be careful when you see a "comparison test" between brands and the people doing the comparison are the manufacturers of one of the products they are testing. I can't imagine any cooler being much better than the Yeti cooler I have. I've used it for a week at at time, put in ice at the start of the trip, and at the end of the week, still had lots of ice left. Notice I said lots of ice, not just some ice. I might be able to believe some cooler could be better, but the results they're claiming aren't believable to me.

Perhaps you did not read the first sentence that the tests were done by the magazine, "Practical Sailor".

Test was crap.

Should have filled up all three coolers with ice and/or beverages and waited to see how long they would keep.

Also the 2 expensive coolers are built like a female East-German gymnast. Ugly, but tough!


I am with others though....I am not ready to spend that much money on a cooler.

I agree on the test parameters being 'off'....

Why not pre-chill every one of them, fill them up and see how well they retain the ice?

I say the Engel and the Yeti will be basically the same.

I can buy alot of ice for the price difference!!! My coleman extreme holds ice plenty long enough for me. Not to mention look at the weight difference!!! A full ice chest is heavy enough without adding 20lbs! IMO a 20lb heavier ice chest that cost 3 times as much and only saves you a few more hours of ice retention is a complete ripp off!!!

I do not own a high dollar cooler and do not plan on it anytime soon.

The test is just plain BS.

Put 3-4 cases of beverages inside and then fill the rest up with equal amounts of ice. I do not put a 6 pack in a big cooler and a bag and a half of ice and expect it to keep for very long.

It is the same principal as a refrigerator. If you take everything out of a fridge and expect it to use less energy to keep cold than a fridge that is full of stuff.

I am not telling everyone to go buy a yeti or whatever, just saying the test is bogus.

Personally I believe the biggest difference in price is not how much better they are at keeping ice but in the quality difference in construction. Handles, hinges, lasps, drain plugs, material, etc.

Been hunting Mexico for 6 years. Ice is a big problem. No electricity on this ranch. always stay at least a week. Ten hunters and I have seen all kinnds except Engel. Best I have seen is a 120 qt Rubbermaid. I know I thought they were no good but this cooler is the best by far. Those guys with Yetti coolers bought em. Gander sells em for 99.00.

The main thing I don't have to worry about with my Yeti is it falling apart. They're built like a bomb shelter. The ice retention on the Yeti is incredible. But it should be for as heavy as they're built. About to buy a Roadie model Yeti to keep in my truck full time.
Oh, and the customer service from the Seider brothers is top notch. These are also the guys that started Waterloo Rods and The Launcher popping corks.

Based on your refrigerator theory, the coleman cooler would see the greatest increase in efficiency since it was the largest of the three coolers.....

But seriousily, when they do the SAME thing in ALL 3 coolers, the test is not BS. What would make anyone think the results would be different if they packed all 3 coolers to the gills with ice? I would expect one cooler that outperformed another with 16lbs of ice to STILL outperform the other of I started with more ice....I mean why wouldn't it?

And I agree, the biggest difference is probably hindges, drain plugs, etc.

......not in how well they keep things cold!

We hunt in Mexico and have the same issues. No electricity except for a generator so no plug-in fridge or freezer.

We have an old standup refridgerator that does not work. Layed it down on its back so it works like a chest cooler. We bring about 50 lbs of dry ice and line the bottom of the fridge and put all of our bags of ice on top.

It gets cold enough inside to freeze capes that will pass inspection crossing back into Texas.

Yeti addresses this one their web-site. in a since. Since the Yeti cooler is so thick it takes longer to cool them however once the coolers itself gets cold it stays cold. I got two for Christmas and have been very pleased. I haven't had any experience with the 2 others mentioned in article. When compared to all the other coolers I have owned the Yeti is by far the best. not only does it keep things cold but they are virtually unbreakable.

Default Engel, Yeti, Coleman

i found another independent test on youtube by SportsmanGuys comparing a bunch of different coolers and the Engel also came out to be the best cooler.

I actually have had some experience with the Yeti, Coleman and the Engel and the main differnce is how much insulation they each use and where they place the insulation in the cooler. The Engel places a thick 2" layer on all sides(provides- great insulation all around the cooler). The Yeti places hardly any insulation (a lot less than 2" on the bottom of the cooler and a lot of insulation on the top). This makes no sense since all your ice goes on the bottom of the cooler and all your cold gets lost from the bottom. The Coleman in my experince held the ice about the same as the Yeti. So in my experince when I upgraded my cooler to a Yeti I really felt like i was cheated since my ice lasted as long as a Coleman but i spent a ton of more money. I finally had to throw out the Yeti since I had to keep replacing the latches and the lid broke off after a very short time. My wife also hated the Yeti since she could never open and close it since you have to pull on the rubber latches so hard to open and close it. All the stress goes on the latches and they break right off.

Since I bought the Engel the ice lasts a long long long time - in fact most times I come back home with as much ice as when I started and my wife doesnt complain about opening an closing it since the latches are great and the lid is extra sturdy. To top it all off it has really shown itself to be a better cooler then either the Yeti or the Coleman and it was about 20% less in price than the Yeti. My recommendation is the Engel - you cannot go wrong!

I have a coleman extreme that is 3 years old. When I typically use it for long durations it is during hunting season when the temps outside are not as hot. I fill my cooler up the day before and get it chilled and then i put in what I need and top it off with ice the next day. Once I get to the lease I put my food in the fridge and leave my beverages in the cooler. It kept ice for the whole trip 7 days. Granted it wasn't hot but warm at times (octocber) and I did keep it in the shade as much as possible and there was plenty of ice to make the trip home probably about 1/5 left. For the money and overall considerations I am very pleased with the coleman extreme for the money and performance. As a matter of fact I had a party here Friday night and my cooler still has about a third of the ice that I started with still in it this morning. I didnt pre chill it either. It has been on my patio where it is shaded until about 5:00 and I drained the water off of it once and left the drain open ovdernight for one night. I would say that is a pretty good cooler.

Yeti aka Melti, is the worst ice chest I have ever owned.
I have had to put more I've in that thing than any other cooler I have used.

I agree that the main difference is in the construction. I have a Yeti, fish a ton, and it's well worth it to me, but that doesn't mean it's for everyone. I can stand on it to sight fish, and it keeps ice all weekend. I've been very satisfied.

Thank you for the welcome. I just found this blog and had to comment on my cooler experience. I live in the dallas, Tx area and I own a small plant nursery. I love to go out on the weekends hunting. When I saw this blog about the coolers I had to share my experience.

No, I do not have any relationship to Engel, Yeti or Coleman but it does sound like some of the people on your blog that are praising Yeti do - maybe a salesperson or marketing person from Yeti.

I do have several friends that have shared the same experience with me about the Yeti coolers and how bad they are. They are not durable and are extremely overpriced for what they offer.

Just sharing my experiences and thoughts on this.

I think it woul be fun to set up a top 5 test at bownanza next year. put 'em side by side in the sun... open end close them all at the same time, etc.

Just seems like these threads are always so extreme opinion wise....

Yeti's not durable? Makes no sense... they may not hold ice as well but at least they should score well in durability? Right?

That is 5 beers per hour. I dont think you will be able to walk to the cooler after the 4th hour. Maybe we could just prop you up close to them.

Sorry, did not read all the posts as I will not dump $500 + on a cooler. We have a reach-in freezer on a trailer we bring to camp, and a generator (both were less than the Yeti.) Have a few Colemans and Ice....$500+ for a cooler???

I had bought a large igloo or rubbermaid every year for several years. I now have several igloos and rubbermaid with aftermarket and broken hinges and latches sitting in the shed that i dont use. I have had my yeti for three years and it has spent 300 days a year in the back of my truck and has all of its latches and hinges in pristine shape. I plan on buying another for longer trips, because long-term the price is worth it.

Hunter1, If you dont take out your drain plug it doesnt create a vacuum and the lid will open easily.
