I can load up the center "bay" with crushed ice and will have cocktail ice for 4-5 days. It'll stay effectively cool for 6 to 7 days if fairly managed. That's with the frozen containers, two other half gallon containers, and 3 or so bags of crushed. With that ice load it performs similarly to the yeti with half as much ice (6 -1/2 gal jugs and 2 bags crushed)- in short the extra 50 qts of capacity mostly goes to ice to even the performance out. With that said, ithe Gott sits better in the boat and is easier to organize with the dividers, so I use the it a lot more than the Yeti.
I think the thing that gets over looked in these discussions is that rotomolded coolers perform as well as "traditional" coolers with less ice. But for the price the Gott 150 works very well, I'm glad I have it for sure.
Next for me is 50-70 qt roto cooler to keep in my truck for lunch and such at work and on weekends. First good deal when I have spare cash will get swept up.
