I have a thread around here somewhere from a warped lid.

Contacted YETI through email, sent a picture, they sent me a UPS label to ship back, and a new cooler.

New cooler has no problems.

Borrowed a buddies ginormous one for a party.
Don't know size but almost as wide as the inside of a truck bed.
1/2 way full of beer & ice, it was easier and safer to load / unload with a fork lift.
Not even kidding.

My Coleman at less than 1/3rd the cost, does just as good a job.

They discussed on THT way more than would seem necessary.

So I heard about these Yeti coolers but never really looked at one up close. So sitting on the beach a few weeks back here comes our neighbor with his new Yeti in tow. Its the smaller one which I check out some. Well its much heaver then my cheap cooler and held a lot less beer for the same size cooler. Ok his ice didn't melt very much but he had to make a second trip to get more beer.

A lot of people seem to not like others buying them.

Take a look at orca. I have three yeti's and three orca's. If I ever have to buy another it will be an orca.
In summary
Orca-
made in USA
lifetime warranty
# is the actual capacity (my 26 orca is larger than my 35 yeti)
thicker insulation
seems to hold ice better for me
Available in some cool colors as well as the usuals
