Kind of funny. Thing is, every Yeti item I have was indeed a gift. My wife gave me a 35 well over ten years ago, and it has lived most of its life either in my truck bed or boat. Love it for the durability factor. A few years after giving me the 35 as a birthday gift, she gave me a 65 as an anniversary present. Nothing wrong with the cooler, but it is rarely used due to size, weight and the fact I rarely need it. It has been handy for the state and national scholastic trap championships simply for storing ice for several days in order to replenish smaller coolers as needed. I have one Yeti tumbler which was a gift last year for judging the World Duck Calling Championship, and I have a Yeti cap which was given to me by Yeti. All that said, if I could go back in time I would have personally bought the 35 the day they came on the market. The rest, I'd still only have if they were given to me. I do want one of the heavy duty soft coolers, but I'll be buying an off brand.
