    Still short a few commitments to place an order. Also, still waiting on pricing and availability for the other sizes discussed previously. Without at least 10 total though this isn't going to happen.

    Sorry, haven’t been on in a while. I’ll take a 45. Would have got another one, but my beloved beach cruiser cherokee just died and in search of another one.
    Again, thanks for putting this together

    Sorry to hear that. If you donít mind driving Iíd look for another one in AZ or NM. My dad recently bought a Suzuki Samurai down there and there wasnít a speck of rust anywhere. Super cool little trail buggy.

    Just need 1 more commitment.

    For informational purposes, why are you guys interested in getting these advanced coolers? In what situations do you find yourself where you need to keep something cool for several days? I'm assuming the people listed above go on long multi-day kayaking trips? These coolers are twice the weight of a lower cost Coleman Xtreme which I listed earlier in this thread (25lbs vs 12lbs).

    I purchased the 50 quart Coleman Xtreme which should be completely fine for a full day fishing trip. Anything past that I wouldn't count on. Do you have two coolers that you swap depending upon the situation (a lighter one for single day trip and a Yeti-like cooler for multi-day trip) or is the additional weight not a big deal on the overall load of the yak? Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    I'm not putting a cooler on my yak, this is for my truck or campsite on extended day trips. One trip in particular that I hope to take every year is 3-4 days plus travel. Having to go out and buy ice twice is annoying. I also plan to do more cross-country hunting trips where I might be hauling a huge load of meat for several days. I know from experience that a quality sealed cooler like this will hold frozen meat much better than your standard Coleman cooler. In summary, mine are for extended trips, plus I don't plan to ever buy another cooler.

    I was looking for a bigger cooler but it looks like I’m inheriting one from my dad. Count me out on this buy
