Pelican coolers

I am needing a larger cooler and have been looking at the 150 quart pelican coolers. I have several pelican cases for everything from rifles and optics to delicate electrical equipment and really like all of it. I currently have a 65 quart yeti cooler that I was able to get a good deal on. I like yeti but their big coolers are very expensive and the pelicans are more reasonable. Does anyone out there have a pelican cooler? Just wanting to know the pros and cons of it. I'm thinking about having this new cooler dipped in camo. Appreciate any feedback

    Skip the Yeti. Pelican looks good. I have a Brute and really like it. They are a little cheaper than Pelican, and also made in the USA.

    I've considered the Pelican several times. I REALLY want a Brute, i've read some very good reviews.

    I just checked out the Pelicans at this years SHOT Show, they look like a great cooler. All their products seem to be first rate IMO.

    I have been using Engel Coolers for a while, they have been outstanding. Their price is great too if you shop around a bit. I think they make one with a camo lid.

    I got a deal on my Brute. $350 shipped for the 100qt.

    It held ice for over a week at Burning Man(Black Rock desert in August). Also held ice for Speed Week (Bonneville Salt Flats in September).

    It's also survived an antelope and mule deer hunt bouncing in the back of a pickup without a hitch.

    I'd love to score a deal on a 50qt and a 75qt to complete my collection.

    I have a pelican 65 that sits in the back of my truck. Amazing cooler! Only downside is the weight. They are tough as hell and if you pre cool the cooler it will keep ice for 5-10 days in the summer.

    I'm old school. I still use my big Igloo's. Dry ice, no water. The Igloo's do the job and cheaply.

    Better yet is a 4x8 utility trailer (behind the pickup) with a freezer and portable generator.
