Take a Quick Look
The top rated high-performance coolers are very comparable when it comes to performance and durability, making their slight differences very important when considering which one to purchase (if you haven’t yet).
For the sake of this post and chart, the two premium cooler companies that will be compared are YETI Coolers vs. Grizzly Coolers. This non-scientific comparison has nothing to do with the exact minute the last ice cube melts or the minuscule difference of polyurethane insulation stuffed in the lid and sides of the coolers. Variables like empty air space in the cooler, temperature of the cooler before starting, temperature of the ice before starting, what contents are being cooled, and a lot of other little things effect the actual performance of the cooler – making this about things that can’t be altered based upon your individual circumstance. PRICE AND WARRANTY!
The short report:
The YETI Roadie bar handle and the Grizzly 20 bar handle perform the same.
The rest of the YETI Tundra series dangling handle and the rest of the Grizzly series dangling series perform the same. Both are durable and are going to hurt because these bad boys are heavy and awkward!
Their durability is extremely similar. They are manufactured with premium materials and are designed to last through extreme conditions.
Colors and Custom Options: YETI Cooler have 3 options for exterior color. Grizzly Coolers have 6 main color options, but can also be ordered in Licensed options like camo and brand name companies. Both YETI and Grizzly coolers can be customized with adhesive decals/digital prints to make it truly yours. If you’re going to be spending that much money on a cooler, you’re definitely going to want to make it stand out from the rest!
Chart Overview: YETI Coolers assign a number to their coolers that doesn’t align with the actual holding size of the tanks. YETI tells everybody how many cans their coolers can hold, which is important, but not everybody buys a premium cooler to place just cans in! High-performance coolers are designed for campers, hunters, fishers, caterers, & tailgaters to put a lot of everything in. Grizzly Coolers shoots it straight and named their coolers the actual quart sizes they hold. Coolers in the chart are compared by quart (most similar from each company).
Starting with the smallest comparison, there is a $20 difference.
As we move on, the price differential increases to $30, $40, and even $60. The biggest savings tops out at $60. The YETI 110 and Grizzly 100 are priced the same.
Next, warranty information (The X Factor)! Under normal use, YETI offers a 5-year limited warranty and Grizzly offers a Lifetime Warranty.
THAT’S A REALLY, REALLY BIG DIFFERENCE!
If you know you’re going to be using your cooler for true outdoor activities, what kind of comfort level do you get when getting a 5-year warranty? A Lifetime Warranty with Grizzly Coolers presents a confident, durable, high-performing cooler that makes a promise to you, the consumer. To top that, you get double the color options and small town customer service from our friends in Decorah, Iowa.
