Default Coolers

Kinda random but I think pertinent to those who like to have a cold drink in the outdoors.

So besides YETI, what are some other brands of coolers one might consider?

I know of a few and wondered what others thought/experience they've had with these brands—add more if I missed any:

GRIZZLY
YETI
ICON
BRUTE

I still prefer the yeti for a smaller size cooler, the grizzly (small one) doesn't have a drain and am afraid of the hard plastic closures breaking. The Canyon Coolers are very good and are used by a lot of the river rafting guides on the Colorado, believe they have thicker walls than the others. Here is a good site that carries a huge assortment of quality ice coolers. On the bigger coolers, those with rope handles are harder to carry as they want to swing when filled with ice and two people are trying to transport (200 lbs of ice swinging isn't fun).

The Best Cooler Store | Engel | Icey-Tek | ORCA | Evakool | Canyon

All the guys (and I) go on about how many el-cheapo coolers we could buy for the cost of 1 Yeti.

The few people I've met with Yeti's love them.

I'll be following this thread, I'm sick of my hunkajunk coolers. Been thinking about shelling out for the Yeti...........

Working in South Texas where it is miserably hot every day, there are probably more Yeti's in the back of pickups than all the other brands combined.

Tim: I have one of the Pelican coolers, it works pretty good, the only real complaint I have is the thing is heavy.......just like the Yeti coolers.
