Yeti hopper ice retention

I recently bought a Yeti hopper 30 and was wondering what experiences anyone has had with ice retention. I'm hopping to use it on a multi day IK trip. I have gotten a couple of days out of the cheaper soft-sided coolers and am hoping for more out of the Yeti. Thanks for any feedback.

The ice retention is fucking glorious
3 days as a satellite cooler on the San Juan and then 2 days on the porch.... Still had ice and cold beer in it!

Mine worked duty as day and beer cooler on the San Juan as well... Getting in and out of it every couple of beers as well as snacks. I froze one-liter "tonic water" bottles 3/4 full of water to use as ice--they lasted the first three days, and then I would put a small chunk of block in from the big cooler every morning and it would last a full day easily--meaning cold beer all day long.

so your wildly expensive cooler held ice for 3 days..... I'm sorry, how much did you pay for one of those??? I bought a cheap ass coleman that holds ice for 3 days, think I paid $10 for it at a garage sale....

Well then, you paid ten dollars more for your cooler than I did.

Was the $10 cooler a soft cooler? Every cheap soft cooler I have owned don't hold ice for more than half a day. They also leak like a sieve. I don't own a Hopper, I know they are absurdly expensive but I do think in the long haul the Hopper would be worth it. Everything I have read about them is quality quality quality so maybe the Hopper would outlast (35) $10 cheap coolers?

You bought your cooler for $0? That's a good deal.

Anyone have suggestions for best coolers under $100?

Bought one of these to ride opposite my captains bag in the rowing bay. Nice cooler, 2-3 days ice retention and no leaks.

RTIC makes a soft side cooler for $99. It raves it's better than the Yeti hopper. Don't know, but I do know it's a month out on back orders.

I have the AO 48 can cooler and have been pretty impressed so far.. it fits in the bow or stern of my rmr storm perfectly.


One of my friends has the Ice mule that is pretty slick also. it had good ice retention.
