I have a taller one that I used as a poling platform because of the limited room in my bay boat. I'm 230lbs and the lid held up without flexing. They are tough and very durable. Yes it seemed to hold ice longer than any cooler I've had before.

They are very sturdy and durable, and hold ice for several days. I use mine for a front casting platform & fish box. Make sure the lid fits properly. Fishing Tackle Unlimted has several sizes in stock, and will be much less expensive than Tops & Towers.

I have this same delima but I talked to a distributor who is putting me on a Yeti cooler, same prices but better hardware.
What have you heard about the Yeti Coolers? My dad is getting his boat built, and the shop said they are unable to get ahold of any Icy Teks for several months due the manufacturer being on back order. They are going to outfit my dad's boat with the Yeti Coolers. They also claimed the Yeti Coolers to be better built for the same price........

Wow, dug deep for this thread...2006. If I remember correctly, Icey-Tek was purchased by the Yeti guys. Hence, you see Yeti's everywhere but no Icey-Teks. I think they are still available from Yeti though.

Yukon coolers?

I saw a similar "yeti-knock off" sort of cooler at Academy. It was also an igloo brand, but I believe it was called "Yukon Cooler". Seemed to be similar to a yeti, with rubber seal, heavy duty construction, etc. Yetis are built like an army tank though, and I don't know if these other brands can really stack up, or if they just look good.

I have had the icy-tec 60 qt. for about 8 years and it still looks good and it does keep ice for 5 days in 95 deg heat . . . put something heavy on the lid when storing it, it will eventually close any gaps in the lid . . .
