Got the 50 or 55 I think.    Works great!  Yeti can pound sand.

I have one, and I like it a lot.  You have to buy the right size. Last year when I got mine I went with the bigger one( can't remember the size, 70 something), because it has a better seal.

If you want them to work well you need to pre-load them with ice for a few hours to cool the insulation, but that's true of all of the over molded styles.

I was curious on the sourcing as I’d visited the Lifetime production facilities about 15 years ago somewhere in or around Salt Lake City. All products (obviously can’t speak to any components) made in the USA....case anybody wondered.

I will say that the Lifetime products Costco’s carried over the years have been rock solid performers and value priced.

I have a 77 and love it.  I bought it specifically to keep ice frozen inside a hot truck in the middle of the summer.  1/3 the price of a Yeti and the ice retention is outstanding.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

So many free days, so few fish....  Wait, I changed my mind.  Maybe the best season ever on PS.

Had to go look, yes this is the Wal-Mart brand. We have had 2 of the 55's for over a year now. And would purchase again! They are well built, latches, hinges just overall a nice chest for the price point.

I have a 150 q Yukon, a 70 q Grizzly and a 26 q Ozark. Bought the first two on sale and they are all good coolers. Tough and stay cold longer than traditional cooler. A lot less expensive than some other brands.
