Galaxy vs Canyon Coolers

I know that coolers have many posts, but I didn't see much about Galaxy coolers out of Durango. I'm looking at Galaxy 105 comet long and the Canyon sailor 105. The coolers are the same size, look the same, but 80.00 diff in price. pros and cons?

The backstory

You need to get the backstory on the companies to know what you're getting with any price differences.

Sorry to go on this rant again Buzzards, but I will every time I see a Galaxy post.
Do NOT but anything from Galaxy, if you can even get ahold of them.
It's been 2 years since I ordered and paid for a cooler from Marty. He never sent the cooler and would never send me a refund, even though, the few times I was able to get him on the phone, he said he would.
Personally, I don't think they are even in business anymore.

Buy from Canyon Coolers in Flag. Stand up guys!

I thought that Canyon Coolers bought out Galaxy??? I wasn't aware that Galaxy still existed or was selling coolers anymore???
I have the Sailor 105, nice cooler and good customer service from Jason & Tony at Canyon Coolers.

I know this cooler thing can get out of hand but I will be in Durango soon and thought that I would try to buy local. After reading the post's about Galaxy I'm not sure if they have got things turned around or not? And yes you have to talk something in the winter.

Anyone in Durango have any thoughts or interactions with Galaxy lately?

That's my favorite topic, I've suggested it on Mythbusters!
