Looking for a good cooler. Don't really want to spend $300 on a Yeti. I have tried some of the $30-$40 coolers, but they don't hold ice more than 2 or 3 hours on a hot day. Any suggestions?
I bought a Coleman at walmart for about $30 that stated 3 days. I never pre chill it and rarely completely fill it. If I use large cubes from home, it will last 1 1/2 days in the heat. If I buy bagged ice with smaller cubes, it will last a full day in the heat and drinks will still be cold in the morning. I leave the cold water in and refill with another bag of ice. Don't over buy the size of what you need. The larger the cooler the more ice you'll need to fill it to be efficient.
I've tried bagged coolers and they always seem to leak eventually. Afraid to spend the money on a yeti bag because I am afraid of it eventually leaking.
