    Just ordered a coleman soft cooler for 16 cans, going on a light 3 day camping trip to sedona az. I went be bringing much food that needs to be cooled, except eggs and maybe stuff for sandwiches like cheese and meat.
    Hopefully this will do its job well.
    For $20 shipped, I'm not expecting a heavy duty cooler, even if it works for 1 year I'll be fine.

    I've been considering a Yeti Hopper for in cab Supply but I rely heavily on my Yeti 50 I have cable locked in the bed of my truck. I work out of my truck and it's the perfect fridge away from home. Ample drink storage. The tray for lunch and snacks. Zero issues.

    I've changed up my diet a bit and could stand to have some essentials on hand in the truck but can't justify the cost for the "need" on the yeti side, though I love them dearly.

    and we refrigerate our milk in the US.

    The US along with a few other countries wash eggs and washed eggs require refrigeration.

    Yeti hoppers are great coolers. I have a hopper 20 and just added the flip 12.

    There's no doubt they're great! I'm a bit of an addict. I just can't justify the $300 lunchbox at the moment lol.

    Well my milk is in the fridge too... but i didn't know the us did such silly things to eggs, do oranges also come pre-peeled to prevent people eating the whole thing (choking hazard, lawsuit incoming)?

    Eggs are washed and refrigerated to prevent salmonella. Either method can effective at preventing salmonella if the processor and storage companies follow the method from farm to table. Once an egg is washed, it has to refrigerated. The shelf life of eggs is extended by refrigeration. Scrapping a little chicken scat from an egg before cracking the shell is perfectly acceptable in some countries. The US prefers white eggs while other countries prefer brown eggs. My only preference is over easy which is better than scrambled.

    Some countries do not refrigerate milk.
