Does anyone have a Yeti cooler? Or one of the “knockoff” brands?

We are looking to get one and just want one that works well for the weekend camping or at the cabin without having to continuously add more ice.

I got a Pelican 30Q cooler and have been using it a couple years. The Youtube testers seem to rank it as high as Yeti. I use it at the lake on the deck, and it holds ice or ice water for 3 or 4 days in the sun.

If I want the ice to last as long as possible, I usually “prime” the cooler the night before with frozen food from the freezer. When I’m ready to use it, I return the food to the freezer and load it with what I want, including ice. One more tip: always keep a cooler in the shade and throw a wool blanket over it for max ice retention.
