significantly lighter. I am no fan of carrying 100+ lbs of cooler plus beer to the beach. However, it serves as a great beach seat/table to use once you get out there. Also, the beer stays cold unless the as##### kids keep leaving it open.
hopper is too small and the 65 is too heavy. That thing is the most annoying cooler to hoist into the boat.
The backflip seems like the answer to all my issues. Just need to convince my wife I NEED one. Or sell the other two, but I cant do that as the 65 I got as a sample from a Rep so I feel like I am a putz for selling it to someone else. The hopper my wife got as an anniversary gift.
I am of no help, but I wouldn't get a Yeti cooler unless you are a true fisherman that needs that kind of capacity and ice hold.
What do you need it for? Honestly my dude, a coleman or igloo is going to do everything that 99% of people need a cooler to do. As much as I appreciate a status symbol, I guess I just still have a hard time justifying spending that much guap on a cooler to get a yeti or it's competitors. Maybe if you camp or are off grid or whatever and need ice to keep for days at a time, I could see the need then.
