    RTIC didn't make the list but I've heard their coolers are not bad. I have a 32 oz tumbler that will keep ice for 24 hours. IIRC, two brothers started Yeti. They had some issues and split up. One started RTIC and basically copied Yeti. He got sued, lost, and had to redesign his coolers to differentiate them from Yeti coolers. And the RTIC 45 cooler sells for about $190 to the Yeti 45's $300.

    Don’t forget ozark trails has a similar cooler that has done very well in side by side comparisons.

    Bought one at Walmart. Still had ice after seven days in Texas sitting in the back of my truck in plus 95 degree weather! I like it except for the weight, it’s a 78 quart.

    Grizzly is pretty even with Yeti and a bit less expensive. Since they are less expensive for the same features I'll say better.

    I do hope you are all doing what I did and contacting Yetti and letting them know how you feel . If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem and not letting our collective voices be heard is definitely one reason the second is under attack from all sides .

    I have a 65 pelican and I like it but you need a crane to lift it in and out of the boat.

    RTIC soft side lunch box 20 is excellent,
    I also have the 20 and 45 coolers, pre lawsuit, i find that they hold ice longer if they are pre chilled.

    I’m a huge fan of the Ozark Trail Tumblers at Walmart. They’re a fractuon of the cost of others but have similar performance.

    I did learn the hard way with ice chests though: If you’re buying one of the cheaper (mass produced Chinese), it’s a good idea to do the flashlight test. Use your phone’s light on the inside of the cooler. Watching the outside, move it around and look for voids (bright spots) in the insulation. I got the Igloo roto-molded from Sam’s. It was a great deal, it had a void the size of a tennis ball. Sam’s let me swap it out. I did the light test in the store and got a good one.
