what coolers are you using?

In the market for a new cooler. Everything I've read so far points to yeti. I don't mind spending the money for one. Just want to see what you guys use and recommend.

...because I can lock it with two carabiners and keep all those raccoon's grubby mitts off of my steaks and bacon when I'm camping

I have two yetis a roadie 20 and the tundra 35. Great coolers the 35 stays in the bed of the truck and has taken a beating for the last 4 years with no issues. Just picked up the roadie to stay in the back of the jeep.

I have a couple of coleman xtreme and they hold ice for 2-3 days even in 100 degree heat.

i have a coleman extreme that has been going strong for years...

nothing i've ever had though compared to the old green metal coleman my parents had... that thing was a tank that kept ice like it was a portal to the north pole

I was looking at the newer version of this but they got poor reviews online.

Yeah, something about the newer steel belted models just don't compare.

I've used an Igloo Maxcold for 10years...i've replaced the hinges with a piano hinge, red-neck lid straps, and closures, but it still holds ice like a champ.

Seamless construction coolers (yeti, canyon, etc) are bombproof, but I can't bring myself to drop that kind of coin for something I'm afraid to leave in camp unless it's chained to a tree...and I would be too lazy to bring a chain and padlock!

I read the new Coleman ss is just a regular cooler with a thin ss wrap.

I'm mostly looking for something to use in the back of my tj and wk when wheeling. Nothing huge. Just enough for two adults two kids. So I was looking for durability. I don't want to replace latches and handles.

I like my friend's Yeti, but it's costly and too dang heavy.
I use igloos with block ice as well as crushed. The block ice lasts soooo much longer.

I have a 75 and a 22 Canyon Cooler. The 75 keeps things cold for about 7-8 days in 90ish degree weather. Starting day 9 all the ice is gone and it is starting to warm up quickly.

The 22 is only used on small trips or on my 4 wheeler while at our hunting club. I've never had to use it to keep something cold longer than a day, and it would have very little water in the bottom even after being opened and closed several times throughout the day. They cost a lot less than a yeti and weigh about half as much. I've been very happy with mine so far.
