Rated 5 out of 5 by Jason B Amazing Ice Keeping Ability
I recently purchased a Tundra 75 specifically for a camping trip to the Dry Tortugas in August. August is the hottest month of the year there and there is no ability to resupply. We made large blocks of ice sized to fit the cooler in advance since large blocks melt more slowly than small cubes. The cooler was filled early Monday morning and we made the 900+ mile drive to Key West. The next day (Tuesday) we boarded the ferry for the Dry Tortugas and camped for four days returning Friday to Key West. Saturday we spent a full day in Key West sightseeing. We then made the return 900+ mile trip home Sunday. To my surprise, there was still a small amount of ice in the cooler. I can't overstate the following: the cooler still had ice after 7 days of being stored outside on either a tailgate rack or on a tropical island during the month of August. There are only a few coolers made which could accomplish this feat and Yeti leads the pack with appearance and durability. Thanks Yeti!

We purchased it for our Boy Scout Troop. It does an awesome job of holding ice for a weekend Campout. Love the tray keeps items from getting wet.

I just tested it this weekend for three days in August in West Virginia. I put 50 lbs of store bought ice in, (no blocks yet) and today, the fourth day back at home, it still has three inches of ice across the bottom. Homemade blocks will do even better. (Cut some plastic milk containers in half and freeze to get nice size blocks of ice) I have used block ice before at a racetrack and they do last longer. But I need a few lbs. for the Adult Beverages.
Took a gallon of milk camping - half in the ice half exposed. Ice cold everyday. I put a couple of sodas in the rack. They ended up being as cold as if they had been IN the ice. Nice test. Finally, a place for lunch meat or steaks without being IN the ice. I think the seal is key. I might buy a second rack.
Tip: Don't fill ya cooler with drinks. Put in enough to use and cycle more in. More space for ice, longer use.
I bought this size using the inside dimensions and it worked for "my use" perfectly. I put it in the van, and then I don't move it after its filled - because its heavy as heck empty. If you plan on moving your cooler around a lot, think about getting two smaller ones.
After so many cheap coolers not lasting, I'm very happy with my Monster Cooler. Oh yeah, it is called a YETI. :-)
The shell is like a rock. The drain is the best - big size, big threads, heavy duty gasket, hollow with a side hole so you just unscrew it a turn and water drains form the hole. I need to drain the cooler and stand it up on end and unscrew the drain plug to look at exactly how many turns it takes to where the hole it straight down and just fully exposed.
I was talking to a buddy of mine down in Georgia about this cooler. He said for that price it should MAKE ice. :-) I said yeah, but you get what you pay for. No more cheap coolers. (my last one leaked inside the van) This cooler may outlast me. Nice engineering guys !!
