As far as toughness goes, of course the Yeti is a good cooler to go with. As far as what holds ice the longest, like previously mentioned Coleman Marine coolers keep coming out on top everytime soneone does a side by side comparision on them. You mention your previous ones keep breaking, have you looked into just replacing the hinged? They do make replacement parts readily available at most Sporting goods stores.
I had looked the replacement hinges and thought, another 3 months is all that $15 would buy me. I also thought that I wanted one that latches fully closed, not some plastic friction nipple that wears out.
I couldn't believe the coleman side by side ice lasting you tube videos you guys pointed to. Coleman doesn't even have a latch like the igloos did so I have avoided them, but looks like I should search for the coleman marine coolers now. Also, the Engel looks to be a better cooler since it is a little cheaper than the Yeti's. Thanks so far for the info and I guess I am trying to find any 5-7 day ice guarantee cooler.
