Back in Feb. we broke down and purchased the Engel 123 cooler. We said we would update to let everyone know if it lived up to the hype of " keeps ice for 8 days". Though a very nice cooler well built etc. it keeps ice for 4 days just 1 day longer than our old igloo. I have spoken with another person that has the yeti cooler and they have had similar results. Cooler filled with beverages then iced (25 pounds) ice is good for 4 days, granted we are in the cooler thoughout the day but no the ice does not last for 8 days.
I thought I would update as someone asked how we made out. I am comparing it to the Yeti as these are the 2 highest rated coolers.
