|Not "Cool" for the Beach|
Same yourself some time, money, and effort by purchasing either a Backpack Cooler or a Chair Cooler combo. Either of these options is the way to go for frequent beach goers who know how miserable it can be to trek down the beach with all of your gear. The backpack cooler provides you with a cooler that is easy to transport along with dry storage for your cell phone, wallet, etc. The chair cooler can literally be the only thing you carry to the beach. It has all the benefits of the backpack cooler, but also gives you a comfy seat all in one load.
Yeti has the highest brand recognition of any premium cooler, but the competition in this category is getting more intense every day. Pelican ProGear, Icey-Tek, Grizzly, and Igloo have all stepped up their game in the high end cooler market. All of these manufacturers are currently producing coolers that are nearly as good, if not better, than Yeti's depending on your specific needs.
Yeti® Coolers have become the new "must have" gadget for gear heads across the country. Claiming to be colder, stronger, versatile, and more durable, Yeti's have taken over the domestic cooler market by satisfying the needs of the most demanding weekend warriors. While you may feel a little sticker shock when shopping for a Yeti you will undoubtedly not regret the investment once you have used it for a day on the boat or at the beach.
