I got this 35qt Pelican cooler back in December of 2013 and absolutely love it. I keep it cable locked in the bed of my truck. This cooler will hold ice just as long, if not longer, than the Yeti cooler. However, there is pros and cons to this cooler compared to the Yeti Coolers and others like it. The good- it holds ice just as long, if not longer. It is also much better built with the dual handle systems compared to the rope style handles on the Yeti. It is also at least $100 cheaper than the Yeti's in the same size. The bad- The Pelican coolers are much heavier empty compared to the Yeti. Nearly twice as heavy. That might help them hold ice longer than the other similar coolers in that price range, but it definitely is a two-person job to move one of these coolers when they are fully loaded with ice and drinks. Overall I am very impressed with the quality of the cooler and the ice holding ability of it. It is also nice having a metal lip on the front that you can run a padlock through and keep the cooler locked shut.
