Had to get a cooler for my service truck so I can keep some waters. I had an Igloo and Coleman on trucks in the past. They just annoyed me. I'd get ice in the morning and it would be almost gone by the end of the day. I decided this time I'd pony up for a "Premium Cooler" this time. I didn't want a Yeti, preferred made in America, wanted something that would hold ice for more than 3 days, it needed to be capable of abuse from riding around in the bed of my truck everyday, and I wanted a good warranty. After some research I came upon Canyon Coolers of Flagstaff Arizona. They offer a full lifetime, transferable, no hassle, no fault Warranty. They are made in America. Their Outfitter 35 (which is the one I ordered) has a true 35 quart capacity. The Yeti 45 has a 37 quart capacity..... Let that sink in Yeti Bros..... They are also holding ice better than many (if not all) of their competitors in all the reviews I've found. One reviewer said it still had ice on day 7. Yeti, Orca, Grizzly, etc, not so much. Plus, they're running a Father's day special. 15% off. I bought mine this morning for $169 with free shipping. Needless to say, I'm stoked. I'll update when I get out with thoughts and performance. It should be perfect for tailgating, BBQing, carrying water for the job, and camping.

I never thought I'd see the day people were paying $2 a bottle for water, let alone $170 for a cooler.

Says the guy who sells $4000 scopes.....

Quality and performance come with a price. I'm willing to pay for it when it comes to something I'll use a minimum 5 days a week and usually 6 or 7.

It's not that bad of a price point, for a premium cooler. In for a range report when you have had it for a few weeks. I'd be curious to see how it holds ice in the Georgia heat.

From what I've read the key is to fill them all the way up to the top to get maximum performance. No empty head space.

I've already got a tracking number. FedEx has it here the 6/13. I would've rather it been UPS, but whatever. If it's free, it's for me. I'll let you know.

Yeti is the best thing that ever happened to igloo and Coleman. I bet they never would have imagined they’d be selling the crap out of $150+ “budget” coolers.
They got complacent with their offerings. Meh, it'll keep your sandwich cool till lunch. People buy it. Why do more?

The biggest thing with any cooler is keeping it iced down. Leave a little bit of water in the bottom and ice it daily. If you go a couple days without use, ice it the day before or put it in the deep freezer to get the cool down process going.

I agree. Cooling down the plastic first goes a long way to making the ice last longer.

I was really thinking about this for the up coming camping trip... I'd like to have some non-canned food for Saturday or Sunday, but I'm also not going to spend serious coin on a cooler for that.

And you can buy ice for $2 a bag within 300 yards of the parking lot at the state park.

Strange that I’ve never heard of this brand, and there was a thread about them started on another forum a few days ago. It seems yeti has another competitor. I like my orca, but 12oz bottles have to be horizontal to close the lid. I’ll check out canyon next time I’m in the market.

I hadn't either. After I started researching coolers though, I saw a lot on them. All you ever hear about is Orca, Yeti, or Grizzly. But maybe Canyon will bring some more competition. Especially for the price. And I like the straight forward marketing of labeling their 35 quart coolers as, "35." That's crazy Yeti gets away with their "45" only being 37. But then again, bro's gonna pay what Yeti say, or he'll go straight to bro hell and have to turn in his stickers and white framed Costas. Anyway, it's out for delivery. I might have been wrong about the made in USA part though. I read somewhere they were made in Taiwan and insulated in Alabama with the exception of their largest coolers. I'll check when I get home.

Why such a odd color selection though?
I was thinking the same thing. My guess is that they are buying blended poly beads to make it so that is the color it ends up being. I would have to paint it white to help reflect the sun if it were going to bin the bed of a truck all day.
