A $300 or $400 cooler is only necessary if you plan to do trips over 4 or 5 days. A properly managed, $25 coleman 48 will keep cold for 3+ days in temps pushing 100 deg, and a Yeti doesn't keep those beers any colder for just the day flyfishing trips. A slight upgrade will get you something with a lid you can sit on without warping it.

Here in the east, it cracks me up seeing all these people scrambling to buy Yetis...when you often have to stretch a trip/drag your feet if you want 3 nights and 4 days on a river and 98% of the people I run into that have them, only daytrip.

Don't get me wrong, they're nice, durable etc...I'd like to have one but it will probably only come in one of two ways...1) I find it along side of the road after it dropped off a truck, or 2) someone buys one for me (no one will ever buy one for me).

You ARE correct. I had experience with that theory. My Walmart Igloo 120qt held cold food and Ice for well over 5 days when packed with high quality block ice. The difference for me was when I heard it crack when passengers sat on it, then I stood on it to hang something from branch and fell through the lid. I patched it up with Duct tape, got home, and watched for good deals until I found a roto-molded unit.

You make a very valid statement. I do plan on doing multi overnights. I plan on getting the knock off YETI. It's half the price and very similar in terms of durability and construction.

I contacted RBW and they still haven't gotten back to me yet, just shot DRE an email about their frame. They both look solid.
