About a month ago I bought the large Yeti tumbler knockoff from Ozark Trail at Walmart. I've been pretty impressed with it so far, especially since I only paid $9 for it.

Then today I was in Wally World and saw that Ozark Trail has knocked off the soft sided cooler and it's only $59, compared to the Yeti Hopper which costs $300 -$350.

Does anyone have the Ozark Trail soft sided cooler? Do you like it? How is the quality? Is it durable? Would you recommend it? Thanks!

Yeesh, who's making this stuff that a dayum soft-sided cooler co$ts $350? What is it, thermo-nano nuclear powered? Is it mil-spec for a NASA space mission to Mars? Dayum things (Yeti) are sooooo expensive you would think that Under Armor was making it ...

Rant over ...

I guarantee you they are being made side by side in some factory over in China.

My Ozark Trail tumbler is great. Perfect for beer when we're camping.

Interested! Let us know if you buy it.

My wife and kids got me the small RTIC cooler for my birthday and it awesome........Not 5 days worth of ice awesome, but nicer than some of the cheapies for sure.

I'm pretty sure this Ozark Trail is the equivalent size of the Yeti Hopper 40, which is the largest and most expensive soft sided cooler they make.

This evening I was packing up the Jeep for this weekend's excursion, putting my igloo marine cooler in, I was looking at my makeshift drain plug (modified wine cork) that I rigged years ago and had forgotten that the hinges were busted on the lid. Then as I went to lift it up one of the handles on side cracked in half.

I'm thinking I'm gonna try out the soft sided cooler. I'm going to check them out again tomorrow and if I buy it I'll let you know how it performs.

i still use my 20 year old igloo. zip ties for hinges and a plastic plug from a new brake master cylinder as the drain plug. guaranteed not to get stolen out of the back of the truck.

Yep. After I saw the $59.00 price on a Yeti 30 ounce drink cup.....!!!!! Sheesh.

I bought one of those WalMart knockoffs for $9.95. Unbelieveable that the ice stays frozen in that thing overnight. My only complaint is that it stays so cold, that, after I drink the water that I put in..the d#$% ice doesn't melt to produce more drinkable water like it used to.

I find I have to open the lid to let the ice melt, so I can get more water. Ha Ha What a complaint. It works too well!!! Ha

I'm old and frugal. If I went on three day trips and needed my ice to last that long, I MIGHT consider something fancy. But, I doubt it. No way can I justify $59.00 for a cup to hold some water for a few hours on the water.

On another site, I saw a $6,000.00 powered Kayak. For that much money I could buy some nice Jon boats/Gheenoes/Soloskiffs.

The world has gone crazy.

Hi Rich99, the $59 is for a soft sided cooler, not the tumblers. I have the tumbler as well and paid the same price you did. I have the same complaint as you with the tumbler, being that the ice doesn't melt quick enough for me drink it.

Yeti coolers are for suckers. The latest status symbol.

I agree. $28 is still a lot of money for a cup.
