Default Yeti killer?

Could this company force Yeti (even Orca) to bring the price point down on their coolers?!

^^^True, if they crack yeti's marketing, they might put a good dent in their sales.

Eventually once they have proved to be worthy. Similar to what Southwest Airlines has done to reshape that industry. But the key is proven success with raving clients.

Doubt they'll kill Yeti unless they have a hell of a marketing base. Hats stickers colsters and your good.

Looking like one and having the same colors does not make it the same. Most coolers that are top notch have more fill in the bottom of the cooler that really makes the difference. Without someone believable doing the 2-3 day in the sun test, it is a crapshoot.

I can say this. I will buy one if I ever lose/have someone steal my 65 Yeti.

Only reason I own a Yeti is because I worked at a tackle shop at the time of purchase and got a screaming deal.

I bet the owners of Yeti own Rtic.....

And the owners of Yeti are just sitting back with a big grin on their face.

I just reserved one, not obligated to buy and they didn't get any card information. One thing I did find alarming was this. I clicked the chat button to ask where coolers where manufactured and got this dialog"

Chat Please wait for a site operator to respond.

Chat IYou are now chatting with 'Gena'

Gena: Thank you for contacting Cheap Cheap Moving Boxes. How may I help you today?

you: I thought this was a chat for rtic coolers

No response
