I just noticed that Costco sells the Pelican cooler, rated for 7 days of ice. Based on the reviews
on Amazon, it's heavier and better insulated than even the Yeti cooler, at a lower price
. According to Outdoor Gear
Lab, the Yeti and Pelican are equal in terms of thermal retention, but the Pelican is better suited for a permanent location, the Yeti is better for portable use, simply due to the weight difference. The empty 45 qt Pelican weighs in at 35 lbs, 8 lbs more than teh Yeti!
Costco has the 95 qt version for $380, which would make a good bench seat. MSRP is $730.
Anybody bought one for beer
or fish storage
