Default Serious issue with yeti cooler...

I dragged the old 75 out of the shop to put a seat cushion on it the other day. Gave it a good wash down, and noticed the next day the bear proof sticker had fallen off.

Now I'm concerned a grizzly bear Is going to attack me or my family on the boat.

What sort of weapon should I start carrying for bear protection you think?

Buy a cheap ass RTIC cooler, slap a Yeti sticker on it, throw it at attacking grizzly. Said bear will be confused by the cheap knock-off labeled as a Yeti, giving you and your small children ample time to escape.

That won't work. I've heard their inferior lids warp. The warped lid may effect my aim and then in left without cold food and I'll be eaten by the bear.

I MUST have my yeti but it is useless without its bear proof capabilities.

Warped lids provide perfect aerodynamic properties for a "curve ball". Smack that bitch up side the head even if he's standing behind a tree.

This is a wilderness survival situation. Use what you got, kid! Think like MacGyver....

Forget bears. You need a giant stick to keep the fat chicks at COC off of the thing trying to make the yeti butt instagram page. There are plenty of hot chicks there too......but they for the most part already have a cooler to sit on.

Then again, a fat chick may be just the thing for bears.
