Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought a Yeti 105 several years ago and appreciate it immensely. I've found that following Yeti's advice on how to use it pays off. We chill everything before it goes into the cooler, so when packing for the trip nothing warm goes in. As the level of stuff inside goes down during a trip we fill the space with towels and maybe a blanket. This provides a barrier to keep the cold down in the cooler when opening it to fetch things, and also provides a soft surface for placing delicate fruits and veggies on top (the basket is no good for this - damages soft items like fruits, avocado, etc.). I keep the cooler out of the sun when possible, and I keep it covered with a blanket or with a piece of reflective bubble wrap insulation even when it's not in the sun. Pre-cooking and freezing some foods like stews and soups and placing them down in the bottom of the cooler really helps extend the ice. And I try to open it as few times as possible. We've used it for trips lasting two weeks and I'd say that overall I have to buy less than half the ice I had to before I bought the Yeti. I bought the vertical divider for it and find that it helps keep stuff from moving around and allows for division of contents. It's also nice to be able to put a pad lock on it, not for the bears, but for the beer thieves one may encounter at larger gatherings!
I have few complaints, but I do find that it's heavy when full, too heavy for me to lift it by myself. Guess I need to buy a 65 or 75 for times I'm traveling alone! Also, the rubber feet that come on them from Yeti are super grabby and make sliding the cooler across flat surfaces very difficult. I bought some aftermarket replacement pads that are hard plastic so I can slide it around more easily.
