Yeti

Sorry to gush, but I'm gaga about my new Yeti Panga 75... somewhere between the quality of the product and the adventures it foreshadows, I've recovered from the ludicrous price I paid.

Perhaps the same can be said of my Defender?

I just had the same experience, but with a Kuat
Bike rack, expensive as hell but well worth it.

JT - You're totally right. In fact, right before hitting "send" to order, I thought about how I could buy dry bags like nesting dolls - a dozen - for less.

I bought it to smuggle marijuana across the Canadian border year-round. Figured it was short money for the intended purpose.

I just can't wrap my brain around spending $$$ on that Yeti stuff. Equal coolers can be had for half the price.
I have a Large North Face Base Camp duffel that has been bombproof.
Last year I bought a SealLine Pro Portage Pack 115L for a waterproof Boundary Waters bag.

Yeah...or for about two yeti coolers, you could get an Engel fridge. Madness!

John Tomac on a turquoise loop tail with that crazy Tioga rear wheel is what pops into my head when I see the word Yeti. Or Missy Giove. Or an elevated CS bike done with MBA. John Parker made some rad stuff back then.

Love my BCDs! Medium works for most trips under 1 wk & the large for longer or winter trips. Not a dry bag but pretty darn close. Sealline bags look real nice too.

Sealline inside the base camp duffle and those watershed bags are tough, not to mention they started in WNC

There's just something about the "Yeti" brand name. Yeti Coolers, Yeti MTBs, even the Goal Zero Yeti solar generators. For some reason, I've collected them all.

All that said, I have enjoyed these newer "HD" coolers. In the summer, being able to keep ice longer than half a day is extremely nice. Heck even in Colorado, with a standard cooler, we had to look for ice every day or so. Kinda a pain to always have to be looking for ice, especially on a week long journey.

I hope north face has come back with their duffel. I prefer those, but the RTIC duffels are also looking quite nice as well.

I just came back from 2 weeks in CO. The cooler we brought was too small and wasn't keeping ice. Bought a new ~65qt Coleman for $50 at Wally World amd left the old one in the parking lot. The $50 cooler held ice for at least 4 days.

It's all subliminal. It's because they use a Defender in the background of their advertising
