Magellan has approx 2in of insulation. Performance is similar to Yeti. Great cooler.

I can buy a hell of a lot of ice for the difference in price between that and an Igloo, lol.
There's also the fact that that 2" of insulation means I either can't put as much in the chest, or can't put as much in the truck. I just never was that impressed.

Personally I would buy American made coolers. Yeti BTW is not made in USA anymore. Funny they went overseas and the price remained the same. #marketing101

Igloo and Orca are both American made.

This is what happens when you send rotational molding molds to china...

you can buy them back cheaper !!!

they copy everything and if you have a rotational molding machine you can buy one of those molds and make you own cooler smile

Good point. But can you have that ice delivered to you on day 4 of offshore trip, or hunting trip after you have cleaned your catch/kill?

Take a good look at that RTIC (http://www.rticcoolers.com/rtic-65-cooler.html). The lid on the cooler in the main photo is warped. Just sayin'.
