    Cabelas Alaskan Guide 60 qt Cooler

    Is on a great sale at Cabelas this weekend. Doorbuster sale from 8am to 1pm. $100 off. It is still $269.99

    I am thinking about getting one. For me it is still hard to justify spending that much on a cooler. Has anybody got one of these. Id like to know if they really keep ice as claimed. Is it worth the price?

    I have never owned one but I have looked at them and they look like a really nice cooler. Probably as close to a Yeti as your going to find and at $100 off I would go for it! I have herd if you get them cold first and then put ice they will hold ice alot longer then putting ice in when they are warm.

    A couple of my friends have yeti coolers. They are really nice, but if you open them to get drinks out....you might as well have a normal cooler.

    The Alaskan guide is made by grizzly cooler irp. They are an awesome cooler! Here is an article that might make it easier to justify spending the money.

    Just remember it is an investment.

    I have been looking at the various high dollar, high performance coolers for a few years. I have decided on a Pelican cooler based on Pelican's lifetime no questions asked guarantee. I have a number of Pelican's lights that I use for diving. If you drop one on the concrete, or it gets crushed by Jaws, Pelican will replace it promptly. Cannot ask for better than that.

    Thanks for the help. I've got a Costco membership, so I'll look into Pelican this weekend. I'll try to pick on or the other.
