I picked up a softsided Ozark Trail cooler on clearance at Wal-Mart a couple years ago. I've been very happy with it for the $30 I spent. Regular price is around $40.

Here's a link

I have two soft sided Yeti's and love them. I have the RTIC 65 hard sided cooler and it does everything the Yeti will do. I don't think you'll go wrong with the RTIC!

They're light.

They usually have a shoulder strap.

They are more forgiving in a tight space. You can "squeeze" them into a tight spot.

Thanks, I deleted my post thinking the question was dumb but your answers make a lot of sense. But now I can't decide between the RTIC 20 or 30 model.

RTIC coolers are the way to go for the money since they are so cheap compared to the Yeti's. Although I have 4 Yeti's but bought them years ago.

I'd go with the 30 or even the 40.

The 20 is pretty small, like a lunch cooler.

The number indicates CANS, not QUARTS.

Ordered the 30 soft. Looking forward to using it and hopefully finding out it was money well spent.
Thanks folks
