Default Yeti vs Grizzly Coolers - Ergonomics Question

It seems as if the Yeti is a little harder to come by at this point in the season, but I can get a good deal on a Grizzly. Not to mention the color choices, and the look of them is pretty cool.

We fish between 6-8 Salmon Tournaments each year on Lake Ontario, and run a decent amount of charters considering it's a part time business. It seems as if we go through a Coleman or Igloo cooler every 2 seasons due to cracking and hinges getting busted up.

My only concern with the Grizzly is the handle on the 150qt cooler. We can have anywhere from 5-12 Salmon in a cooler for a weigh in, and on the 150qt. version the handle is molded with a support right in the middle. It seems like it would be the part of the handle you would put your hand to balance the cooler. Does anyone have any feedback on the Grizzly cooler that would ease my concerns?

It's designed to use two hands, either in line or sideways. With lighter loads I've carried it with another guy with my hand on the front and his on the back on the opposite side.

I prefer the Yeti. They will last many years. They are solid and very well insulated. They dont even bend when I stand on them and i'm 200 lbs.

Just ordered a Yeti 250 as my main fish box. Go to and sign up for there email list, they send you a 20% off coupon on one item and free shipping! I have no affiliation with them, just that they saved me $160 on that sucker!

This will be my third Yeti I own, current have 105 for bait under my leaning post and 120 for food infront of console. They are great, never had any problems with them.
