I'm pumped to try it out next week on the float. Anyone else use a yeti, RTIC , or any higher end cooler?

I use Pelicans. Which is pretty much the same as all the other coolers. If you use Sonic ice, it will last longer. This helps the ice become more "compact" to prevent air getting "around" each cube of ice. AIR IS THE ENEMY TO ICE.

Also another trick is to bring your cooler inside the house a few days before you leave. This way it has time for the insulation to cool down. An additional trick would be to throw some ice in it the night before you leave. Not much, just enough to further cool it down.

That when you actually pack it and load it up, your initial investment of ice does melt so fast.

thanks for the tip, got a good deal on a 60qt k2 it weight 31 pounds by itself lol, should fit plenty off beers and save on having too many coolers

Its like $2 for 10lbs bag.
Regardless if you can buy ice cheaper its well worth it cus it's the tiny ice cubes and they last longer.

I wouldn't think tiny ices cubes would last longer than a solid plastic bin frozen into 1 big cube.
this is usually what we do.

then throw little ice on top.

hell, Hyvee now sells dry ice. Just don't put that in a Yeti or Boom - Kapow!

This is false. Yeti's are rated to be used with dry ice. We use Yeti's with dry ice all the time in the shipping industry. sometimes we have to send medical supplies or chemicals to other countries on emergency situations.
