Post up what you find or your personal experience with any of these or different brands . Yetis are roto moulded and uses 2" of polyurethane to hold the ice longer . They also have the steel lockable corners and replaceable rubber latches . They have a 5 5 year warranty and are made in the Philippines, Iowa, and Illinois depending on the model . Grizzly's are roto and have an unstated pressure-injected insulation . The hinge is molded in with a stainless steel pin . It has a 2" drain plug, bear claw latches ? and a rubber gasket . They are made in the USA and have a lifetime warranty .Engels are also roto molded , offer 2" of insulation and have a silicone gasket . The hinge is intermolded ? Which leads me to believe its plastic as they dont mention a steel hinge pin like the others . They claim to hold ice the longest , and are made in Thailand . The warranty is a 3 year limited offering . Yukons are made by Igloo and are roto molded with 2" foam in the body and 3" in the lid . They have a rubber gasket and stainless steel hinge . The warranty is 5 years and they are made in the USA . Downunders are are roto molded have 2" of insulation in the walls and 3" in the lids . They have a rubber water tight seal and steel hinge pin. The warranty is 3 years and they are made in China ? The country of origin isnt clear , and this is what I have seen mentioned on the web .I am still researching about other brands like ORCA , Galaxy ( may be out of business ), Brute Box ,K2's which look like Orcas and ICON . Theres a lot of offerings to check out and while I like reading and researching real world experience is the most valuable info out there . Any personal experience or tips will be greatly appreciated .
