You got that right - especially if you're talking about the so-called performance coolers. A few years back, I bought a Pelican cooler because I wanted something to keep ice longer and thought it would be cool (no pun intended) to get something that matched my Pelican Storm cases. That was the absolutely worst mistake I've made in buying stuff for camping. I forget exactly what size it was, but it was the size of a 100 quart with something like 4 inch side walls. So the interior wasn't anything close to what I needed. On top of that, the thing was so bulky it was a pain in the *** to move around even when it was empty. I paid a fortune for it and took a helluva beating to pay to ship it back. What I have now is way more manageable. I don't take a lot of perishables out with me, so I actually get by with two 28 quart Colemans. MUCH easier to load in the truck.When it comes to coolers my max size is 48qts. Any bigger they get too heavy.
There is an image going around on the local fishing sites. Someone put razor blades on the handles of their Yeti. All you saw was a ton of blood on the Yeti from where someone tried to steal it.I will never own a Yeti because it would be the first thing to get stolen.
