Looks like Igloo is trying to give Yeti a little competition in the outdoorsman cooler department. We’re not really sure how they plan to pull any market share though. Both brands are priced similar, have similar features, but Yeti is proven to be badass, with many loyal customers and great customer service… I think Igloo will be hard pressed to pull any current Yeti fans away. So, I’m thinking they should both just send the ShootingHead GearDestroyer© a 50qt cooler, for a side by side testing through the upcoming Winter Steelhead season… Just sayin.
From Igloo’s Press release:
The Yukon cold lockers feature roto-molded construction with a minimum of three inches of foam in a gasketed lid, and two inches of foam in the cooler’s body, providing seven-fourteen day cold performance, depending on the body size. They have rugged, wide-grip, integrated handles that accommodate large or gloved hands and can act as tie-down loops. The integrated handles are more stable to carry than swinging rope handles and make the cold locker harder to steal.
Each model has an oversized tethered drain plug for easy draining and cleaning. They also have a textured, non-skid working and standing surface integrated into their lids and unique dual, reversible skid/anti-skid pads on the bottom. The lid is secured with durable, yet flexible rubber latches with finger grips. All stainless steel hinges, hardware and dual lid locks provide maximum security and deter animals. All of these features make the Yukon series the most durable cold lockers in the woods or on the water. For marine users, the new, 70-quart Yukon is designed on the Igloo 94 quart Marine footprint, so it fits readily into racks or under leaning posts on boats.
All four Yukon models are white and include a fully foamed lid with an integrated fish measurement ruler, UV inhibitors to guard against sun damage and infrared technology to reflect the sun’s rays on the body and lid. The MSRP for the 50-quart is $329.99. The MSRP for the 70-quart is $389.99. The MSRP for the 150-quart is $569.99 and the MSRP for the 250-quart is $639.99. The series will be available at retail January 1, 2012.

Me: Send me the photos I’ll put’m up
Matney: Gotta crop them first.
Matney: Yup.. oh and they are all from the same day.
We have done this exact same thing through local neighborhoods around Seattle. Ours may or may not have still had the hooks attached though… Still need to see some of that prairie dog fishing footage from Chris Scoones
Wugazi is a labor of love by Cecil Otter & Swiss Andy. A year’s worth of cutting up every imaginable Fugazi record and trying out every Wu-Tang acapella they could get their hands on, resulted in Wugazi: 13 Chambers (a must listen for anyone who even looked at a skateboard in the 90’s).
