K2 vs. yeti vs. engel
Jul 19th, 2012 at 7:41pm
 
hi guys, im getting a new cooler for my boat and i was wondering what you guys thought of each cooler. The quality really matters and the amount of time it keeps ice is really important because i would be using it for camping (and a cooler seat)   Thanks!!

My k2 cryo 60 keeps ice for the better part of a week. I really like it.

There is a comparison of engel, yeti, igloo, irp on YouTube. Just do a search. Very informative.

I have a 65qt yeti, its my only experiance with high grade coolers, I will say, due to all the insulation, and the near bulletproof construction, just the cooler is heavy compared to our average cooler, loaded with ice its a beast! However I loaded mine totally full with ice and it lasted 8 days in my hot garage. It was a blessing on my latest trip to caya costa, kept 3 days worth of food and drink ice cold and I didnt have to buy any ice at all.

I've not used the K2 or the engel, so I can't comment on those.  The best endorsement I can give is that I'll only be buying Yeti coolers from now on...going to be getting a small one as a casting platform here shortly, and then a 35 or 45 qt when my old Coleman finally dies (I have a big 120 now).  I've had mine for several yrs now and it looks new, and that's after being left outside in the TX sun for 8 months.  Well worth the money IMO.

I'm about 280 pounds and wear a size 15 shoe..that being said, could I stand on one of these as a casting platform?? Would it hold up to my weight and what size would be the best to make me feel stable?? I'm still debating on getting a casting platform AND cooler, but possibly try just a cooler instead

I had 5 Yeti's and was given a K2 for xmas... I have now given all or sold all my yetis for K2... From 60qt-200qt.. lighter, holds ice longer and you can get them in custom colors... All my boats are black so I have all black K2's...

I use my k2 for a cast platform and Im 220... now my dad is 275 and he stands on mine with no problem...

Can't comment on the others, but I have a yeti and it keeps ice well if you pre-cool it.  I don't think that's its real strength, though.  If you going to use it a seat/casting platform/poling platform, the yeti is a great cooler because it is close to indestructable.

If a grizzly can stand on one you probably can, too. A 65 would probably fit you best Will. I'm 6' size 11 and 189 lbs. my 50 qt fits me nice. They even make suction cup anchors to strap it to your deck no holes no fuss.
