Default Yeti vs. K2 vs. Igloo Yukon?

I'm thinking about making the investment in one of these. First of all, are they worth the $ and which is the best? I see more Yeti, but K2 are local, don't see many of the Yukon. Thanks for your input.

I have a small Yetie (Roadie). Like it a lot. Quality ice chest.
I also have a 50 quart Yukon that I like also. Both are well made ice chests that should last a long time. If price is cheaper for the Yukon vs Yeti I would go with the Yukon. Beware that because of their quality both ice chests are heavy even when empty. Don't know much about K2

I have that Coleman and it holds ice great! The hardware on it is what doesn't compare to the expensive ice chest.

All I will say is that I have a yeti and I hate it. It is ridiculously heavy, mars up my boat, and doesn't hold ice any longer when used as a "real ice chest" - i.e. going in and out of it to get drinks. The only plus in my book is that it is indestructible and you can stand on it to fish.

I have been wanting to try K2's because of the local connection and if I get a new one, that will be it.

I did not care for my yeti, not at that price point. I have several k2 coolers and they seem to be much lighter than the yeti but are still very well built.

Had the Coleman long before I saw the video and it holds extremely well. Hardware is the main thing like earlier stated.
I would buy more of them.

I will be buying K2 now for the simple fact that they are local, I didnt know that! I'll gladly spend the dough for a BD cooler if its supporting the local fella.

Here's the thing, u don't buy these boxes to save on ice expenses. Because you will never justify a 400$ cooler to save on ice. However you can justify it by the assumption that that $400 chest will outlast 10 $70 ice chest. So in that case buy the most durable. Yeti is more durable than k2. Both hold ice just as long give or take a couple hours. Only reason I put yeti above k2 is the latches. Seems like over time the k2 latches could be broken off

For the price you cant beat the coleman....I have a green 70qt extreme holds ice WAY better than igpoo. I also have a k2 55 cube that I use for drinks in the boat. Bad arse cooler. Got tired of using igloo and ice not lasting a whole fishing trip in the summer heat.

I have to agree with this statement. My K2 will hold ice just fine it is just me and the wife drinking out of it. Let 4 kids start opening it for juice and cokes and the ice doesn't stand a chance. I got mine hoping I wouldn't have to buy 2 or more ice chest a year like I was with the cheap WalMart ones. The cheap Wal Mart ones aren't even that cheap anymore.

Dont forget to throw Engel in the mix...I have no problem keeping ice or fish in my cheap marine Igloo...Like others have said its the hardware that sucks...Fill up a 55qt igloo with a couple limits of fish and ice and then lift it up...those handles will come right off after a couple times doing that. The latch that holds the lid shut will break after a few fishing trips also...They do make steel hinges and latches to replace the cheapo ones but they are also pricey for cooler parts..
I'll keep using mine for now b/c its lightweight and its working for me right now...but I've been thinking about getting a k2..support local and have a cooler that matches the boat. Problem is weight for me though...maybe I should lose a few lbs to fix that
