Thinking of getting a new cooler, not named "Y".

Thinking of a all around hunting / general cooler. Debating on a 110 vs 145 size.

Whats ya'lls opinion? Brand and size.

Thanks

I like my Rtic, but then again, I have two 100qt Igloo's that get the job done just as good and cost/weigh a lot less....

I have yet to have an igloo last more than one season without the hinges or latches breaking.

I do like them for cycling ice through the meat as the more expensive ice chests do not melt ice fast enough for it.

I got the 145 from RTIC and will be using it on my trip to yellowstone this summer. I needed something larger that was animal proof.

Iceholes are the best but you pay for them! Made in USA by Veterans (if I remember correctly)!

Canyon, Pelican, and Orion are my favorite "mid-range" coolers

Or just cheap out and get an RTIC or KODI like most people

Can't help on size but just remember they start to get pretty dang heavy

I have a Y, Rtic, Kodi, and Pelican and Pelican is by far the leader when it comes to durability and keeping ice the longest. Made in USA and supports NRA as well. Get a Pelican if u want the best.

Gohunt has an awesome stress test on a few including throwing out the back of trucks going 60. Check out their site.

I've heard Orion are top of the line.

I have 2 rtic coolers and love them. My 20 quart got ran over by a truck and high centered the truck. When pulled the truck off the cooler only had a scrape and cut the rubber handle. Made me a believer for toughness, plus holding ice for a good bit. For the price can not beat them and like them a lot for the price. I have only bought when they had them on sale. But also have an igloo that holds ice good as well.

X2.

For keeping my ice froze at deer camp I bought a small chest freezer. Run it off the generator, just needs to run enough to keep it frozen. (We run the generator anyway for other things.) This last season was my first year doing it this way it worked well. I paid $180 for a brand new freezer at Loweís, I think itís 5cf.

If I had to buy another heavy duty cooler it would be an R-Tic. I have a couple of Yetis and R-tics. I can't see me having to buy another one in the near future, but if I did, I'd just as soon save the difference and spend it on other things.

I have 45 and 65 rtic and do like them. However I still use my 150 igloos when processing critters. I just cant pay those prices for the larger fancy coolers. With Bucees so close to the house with cheap ice I just cant justify the cost.

Default RTIC is great

RTICs are great. Same design as Yeti but literally half the price. Like, so similar design wise you'd think RTIC is Chinese (they're not - they're Texan).

Actually the story I heard is the RTIC company was started by a former partner in Yeti who thought the prices were entirely too high, so they parted on reasonably good terms and RTIC just can't use the Yeti name or certain Yeti design elements.

I have to agree that the Yeti price is entirely too high. RTIC is still high, but reasonable.

Also, I don't know where any of those other companies are based, but I know RTIC is a small business based in Texas, so I'd rather support them.

I have a cabelas polar cap cooler that has been nothing but excellent. Sticks out from the square shaped coolers and I like the overkill double handles. Made in the USA and if you catch em at the right time you get the wheels thrown in.

I watch this guy. He does some solid tests. Seems the Siberian and Kysek have the longest ice holds. These are all solid contenders though, better than Yeti.

RTICs are definitely made in the People's Republic of China. There's no way they could offer them at those prices otherwise. Remember when they screwed everybody and strung them along for a year and used customers money to fund their first big Chinese order? Here's straight off RTICs website:

Where are your coolers made?
Like other major competitors, RTIC products are made in China in order to provide the best quality at the lowest price to you, the consumer. Just like many of the outdoor products you will buy at your favorite sporting goods store; overseas manufacturing is a cost effective way for retailers to provide an affordable product to its customers.

Nothing wrong with the Ozark Trails. They also have a wheel kit for the two larger models. I have a few, and they are holding up fine.

Rather than spouting out the name brands, I'm gonna just say which features I look for in my "game" coolers.

1) It has to have a comfortable carry handle. I have an Igloo Yukon that has the molded handles. This is really nice for carrying, but somewhat of a pain for organizing since the handles stick out.

2) It has to have a big drain plug. I like the big 2" drain plug on my Yukon... those little soda bottle top size drain plugs take too long to drain and get clogged easily (call them that because if you loose the drain plug, you can use a pepsi soda bottle top - same thread!)

3) Beefy Hinge. Should be a big pin/bolt and ideally the hinge molded into the lid and bottom, no screwed in plastic hinges, etc.

4) Latches - There are a ton of latch styles... the rubber bungee style seem to work well.

5) Size - I'd rather own two 75 qts instead of one big 150 qt. The 150qt are heavy and expensive. The cheap igloo 150 qts were great for leaving in the garage with a couple deer, but where a pain to move by yourself full of meat/ice. They also had the cheap hinges and latches. Now I'd rather own two 75 qts. Right now I just have the one 75 qt and I can fit a lot in there with less ice, but the ice seems to last a bit longer once the meat gets cooled off!

I plan on buying another 75+/- cooler in the future...

Ha! Throw em to me! I've got igloo's that are 20+ years old. Biggest reason the hinges give out (other than being plastic) is because the lid stop is gone.(or peeps can't take care of stuff) Keep a decent lid stop on there and go get some stainless hinges the first time they need to be replaced and I'm gtg! I've made hinges out of truck tire tube material that last several years as well. I've got a Boss Buck cooler for haulin' ice and it's awesome but for icing critters(when it's usually a bit cooler outside) the ruggedized cheaper marine coolers are great! To me, hauling bulk ice is the main reason for the fancier coolers. Don't buy the one's with the window sticker included tho..the crooks love that lil sticky note!

Love my Yetis. I don't care where they are made. Chinese products are usually better then American (look at autos, electronics etc).

They don't support the NRA? Not a deal breaker. If everything I went after like Amazon, Briars Ice Cream etc didn't support my causes I would be empty handed. Fact 101

I have a Frio 45 cooler. A Texas company (based in Sealy)

Rotomolded construction, stainless latches, and a continuous hinge. They come with a motion activated light (a brilliant feature)

Itís been pretty darn good to me.

Iíve ordered a few other goodies from them, and they seem like really nice folks.

Iím looking forward to them building a larger cooler.

You can customize your cooler too, when you order.

I have several of the 150 quart igloo marine grade coolers that I use and have used for years.
My wife bought me one of the roto-molded jobs because..................well, I honestly don't know why.......but ended up with the 125q Kodi Cooler from HEB. Works as advertised and I really do like it. Will I buy another? Probably not but if I did it would be the Kodi. I really like the fact that it creates the vacuum that seals it like a freezer. The vacuum release button does come in handy

Made in Texas, Kerrville to be exact. Pro 2A, active in community and make one heck of a cooler. They use the same kind of latches as on Bradley fighting vehicles. Ice lasts me 10 days sometimes in the back of the truck and I like they way they can be locked/secured on the bed of the truck.

Maluna is a newer company that most owners swear by. I was in the original focus group when they started the company, however I never ended up buying one since I didn't need one bigger than my current cooler.

I love the Igloo marine coolers...especially the metal hinges works perfect for me, I don't need to keep ice for 2-3 years

I have a bison/brute and a RTIC. The RTIC performs better IMO. The RTIC seals much better than the Brute/bison.

Those Pelican handles and latches are 2nd to none, and keeps ice just as good as any other. I'd probably go that route.
