I purchased an ORCA cooler. Similar to the Yeti, but still made in the USA in Nashville, TN as opposed to the Yeti which is now made in China. Pricing was slightly less. Ours held ice in direct sun for 5 days while on vacation up in Maine two summers ago sitting on the deck being opened fairly regularly for drinks. It is bulky and heavy when loaded up so more suited for being loaded up and placed in one spot, not really lugging it all over the place. I strap it to the swim platform of the boat loaded up with our perishable groceries for the week when we travel up. It is pretty ruggedly built and should last quite a while. My buddies like to joke that it "makes ice" while sitting outside.
