It's down in the Off Topic section. I am guessing related to them being owned by a private equity firm out of NY and they are are wanting to go public so distancing themselves. Jmo at this point.

I still don't think ice cost that much. So since I'm not a contributer to thier sales. Oh well!

We need to focus on our own Rep/Sen and let them know where to stand. flag

Over priced and out of sync with their demographic only self hating fools will buy their products.

Never bought one, went with a RTIC instead. Very stupid move that they will regret.

Yetiís arenít worth the excessive price for a bulky low capacity cooler.

That was my observation as well. A lot of space and weight for a much smaller holding capacity.

Surely there's a good, in-between cooler available at a more reasonable price.

My friend bought one with CC reward points from Cabela's. We took it on one fishing trip and that was all before he returned it. For the weight, footprint, and capacity you are better off getting an Igloo and purchasing extra ice for you trip with your increased storage capacity.

Until you stand on or drop a bag of ice in the igloo and crack it out. I donít think the Yeti prices are justified compared to competing roto coolers though

I have one that I got over 10 years ago but will never purchase another thing from them.
Don't think they made a good choice in doing this.

Just saw on tv that there is more to the story than everyone is reading

RTIC ?? - bought one - cannot for the life of me open the zipper - it takes both hands to force the thing open - they sent a tube of something to put on zipper so you can open it. Really? paid a bunch for the cooler and I have to doctor it up every month or so in order to get into it? Not for me

I emailed Yeti when I read this. Below is their response. Always two sides to a story.

We're writing in response to your recent email inquiry.

A few weeks ago, YETI notified the NRA Foundation, as well as a number of other organizations, that we were eliminating a group of outdated discounting programs. When we notified the NRA Foundation and the other organizations of this change, YETI explained that we were offering them an alternative customization program broadly available to consumers and organizations, including the NRA Foundation. These facts directly contradict the inaccurate statement the NRA-ILA distributed on April 20.

Further, the NRA-ILA stated in that same public communication that "[YETI has] declined to continue helping America's young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities." Nothing is further from the truth. YETI was founded more than 10 years ago with a passion for the outdoors, and over the course of our history we have actively and enthusiastically supported hunters, anglers and the broader outdoor community. We have been devoted to and will continue to directly support causes tied to our passion for the outdoors, including by working with many organizations that promote conservation and management of wildlife resources and habitat restoration. From our website to our film footage and from our social media posts to our ambassadors, YETI has always prominently featured hunters pursuing their passions. Moreover, YETI is unwavering in our belief in and commitment to the Constitution of the United States and its Second Amendment.

Thanks for reaching out to YETI.
