    I want at least 2. What do you consider small and large? Is the chart pictured in one of your posts the sizes available for these coolers? What colors are available? How much extra are the wheels

    1 will be 110 w/wheels

    I do not know if they make larger than 110QT, but I can ask. I'm sure you could save some serious cash the bigger you go.

    I'm putting together unit prices now for all sizes and options, which to my knowledge is what you see in the chart. Colors available are pretty much anything you want including mixed (see below), and I'm getting info on the wheels as well.

    I don't think this chart even shows all the available colors.

    Guys,
    Sorry to say but I ain't buying anything from China. I know they are cheaper but I buy American as often as I can.

    That Vivitar camera you promoted a while back I can almost guarantee came from China. Sometimes you get what you pay for buying American, sometimes you don't. No reason to cast judgement on others.

    Not casting judgement. Just trying to keep American dollars in America. I got the camera by trading in MD Lottery points, no money spent. My brother-in-law collects used scratch-off tickets and I redeem the points.

    Samsung Electronics is currently manufacturing 50 percent of its mobile phones in Vietnam and only 8 percent in Korea. At present, Samsung Electronics is running six mobile phone manufacturing facilities in the six countries of Vietnam, China, India, Brazil, Indonesia, and Korea.

    BTW, I wonder where Wilderness Systems makes their yaks....

    Your heart is in the right place, and I can appreciate that, but the fact is it is impossible to go about a normal daily life in the US worrying about where this or that came from. I'm a pragmatic person and choose to purchase goods that are functional, durable, and priced right. Buying a $400 Yeti might make some people feel good, but I'd rather invest the $300 I didn't throw away, and hopefully retire a few days earlier. Wal-Mart was the last breath of buy American, and we can all see how that has changed since Sam died.

    You are absolutely right. I am retired and you have to watch every dollar. I accidentally ordered something on the web and did not check the origin. 10 weeks later I received shipping info. Just a warning.

    Some Yeti’s are made in the US, but some come from the Philippines. The Hopper coolers come from China. Their website says if you want a US made one to just ask. I guess it’s a crap shoot if you buy from a retail store where it comes from.
