It’s a yeti, it’s well made
Been wanting one of these coolers for a while but I held back due to cost. I know the saying “you get what you pay for” but I still didn’t want to spend the money. So I went and got a yeti wanna be and it didn’t do as I expected. Got another brand also yeti look a like and same thing, it was ok but not what I was looking for and it leaked. So it was time for me to get my beloved real yeti. Tried it out precooled it with some yeti ice packs and added some ice and it held a couple of days. Did not need more proof Yeti works and it doesn’t leak; you do get what you pay for. I am very happy with it Just sad it took me so long to get one.

Tundra 45 Is A Great Cooler!
I purchased a Tundra 45 cooler in the ice blue color from a Dick's Sporting Goods store on November 21, 2018. I am currently using the cooler inside my house where the room temperature is a constant 67 degrees. I initially put 32 pounds of ice in it and 3 cans of beer. As the days went by, I added more cans of beer, sodas, and bottles of orange juice as space became available. The ice I put into the cooler initially is referred to as the "sacrificial bag of ice". I drained the ice melt once a day. Once the remaining ice had reached the halfway amount, I put an Accurite thermometer purchased at Lowes to measure the inside temperature of the cooler above the ice level. It registered 36 degrees, and remained so for days. By the 8th full day, I still had a big chunk of ice left that probably weighed about 3 or 4 pounds. I got tired of waiting for the rest of the ice to melt, so I ended my test. I was very impressed. In fact, I was so impressed that I bought a Tundra 65 cooler in the ice blue color from Dick's Sporting Goods on December 7th. The Tundra 65 cooler works great, too, as I am currently testing it out. Eventually one cooler will end up being used in my car for trips to the supermarket or farmers market when I purchase salads, cold cuts etc. to keep them fresh until I get home.
I should point out that I am not the only one in my household who loves Yeti coolers. The Tundra 45 is situated on top of two round backless bar stools I bought years ago from Target. The Tundra 65 is placed on top of a small table. Both coolers are located about 3 feet high to make them easy to drain. I can just use a small bucket, or an empty Tidy Cats litter pail to drain the ice melt. So by now you must have guessed that my house cats love my Yeti Tundra coolers, too. They like to sleep on top of the coolers --and I had anticipated this months ago before I bought my first Yeti cooler. So I have large bath towels draped over the coolers to keep them clean and scratch free.
I buy my bags of ice from Shoprite supermarkets. The ice is very good. Some stores sell ice that is mostly chipped ice. Chipped ice will melt rather quickly in a cooler. Look for bagged ice that actually has larger ice cubes so you will have great results with your cooler.
I highly recommend that you get a Yeti cooler. They are great.

Worth every penny!
I bought my YETI at the end of summer so I probably got one use out of it with keeping product cold. It did it's job. This review is more for how well the YETI kept warm. I was in charge of the turkey this past thanksgiving and I had smoked a 25lb turkey. Long story short, the turkey was ready 4-5 hours before our set time for dinner. We didn't want to leave it on the smoker because of possibly drying out the turkey so we covered it with towels and stuck it in the YETI for 4-5hours and when we pulled it out, it was still steaming, warm, and very moist! Def worth every penny!

It's No Cooler...It's An Icemaker
Now look here. This Yeti cooler is no ordinary cooler...It’s an icemaker. This cooler is the best thing I have bought in my 26 years of being alive. This past 4th of July weekend me and my buddies were out East in New York. The weekend was a solid 80 degrees, a little humid and sunny for 4 days straight. This cooler was our lifeline that weekend. We were hauling to the beach, leaving it poolside, throwing it in the back of the car...It was all over the place. It was constantly getting refills of our adult beverages of choice...but never ice. If you put a 5lb bag of ice in there, expect about 10lb’s of ice after 48 hours or so.

Maybe i got a bad one
I have had the Tundra 45 for almost a year now and from day one it just does not seem to hold ice over a day. To me it is no better than a regular cooler just my honest opinion.

Best cooler out there
I bought this a few months ago and I take it everywhere. Keeps ice for 5-6, and ice bath water for weeks.

Over Priced Cooler
My girlfriend bought this cooler for our trip. Didn't keep ice like Yeti said. Will be looking at other brands and way over priced cooler. It's sad that your yeti beer koozey keeps your beer cold in 115 weather in Az. An your cooler can't keep ice for longer than 5 days in about 75 degree weather in Az.

Worth it
Bought this cooler two months ago and haven’t stopped using it. It stands up to everything I put it through and keeps its ice for days.

Love my Tundra 45
Have been working at putting my Tundra 45 through the paces and it’s coming through every time. We took it with us camping in Michigan’s U.P. and it held our drinks cold all weekend long. Super well built. I’ve been using it as a bit of a mini fridge in my garage when I don’t have it out on the road with me. I like the size of the 45 as I can still manage to handle it by myself while it’s full. Anything bigger and I might have trouble. Like all of my Yeti products, this cooler is built to last.
