Engel vs. yeti? And will a 45 Engel fit in 44 raft?

Hello fellow buzzers, which do you prefer yeti or Engel and why? I am considering the Engel 165 that is 45 wide. I have a 1998 Avon Adventurer. The inside width is 44. If I drop the Engel in the boat when soft will that work? Will the situation cause any problems?

So I have an RTIC 65 and Engle 123.... Engle is bomber and held ice for 1.5 to 2 days longer.... Was economical as well ($380) on Ebay and brand new.

Engel all day long. Engel is true to size Yeti's are not. Yeti never states qt size there numbers are "model" numbers. A Yeti 165 measure out to be about a 125-130 qt cooler. Id also look at a Canyon 150 they're a little bit narrower.

Had canyon coolers on my last Grand trip, held ice the entire trip, solid construction and less $$ than the yeti.

It will fit just fine. youll get some black rub marks from it but nothing a magic eraser wont remove when you 303 it for the season this fall. go for it. plus if you drop something down the sides it wont be in the bottom of the boat or under the cooler!

I have an Engel 123 and it is very nice but the Canyon coolers are great as well. The Canyon has a drain in the middle which you can access while the cooler is in your raft. You can get very nice snap on cushions for the Engel.

People are always bad mouthing Yeti, I got a good deal on a 120 a few years ago before a Grand trip. Drove 3 days down, did 20 days on the river, and had ice at the take-out of a Spring trip. I think it was totally worth the investment and will last a very long time.

I would try to get some actual measurements off the coolers. On most of them, the sides taper down, so at the point where the cooler would contact the boat tube, it could be closer to 44" or even narrower because of the taper.
