I am tired of seeing their advertising on the tv fish shows. Every scene has a pic of some Yeti product. It is as if one will not catch without a Yeti product on board.

Absolutely. Never understood the fascination versus the price.

Yeti is listed on the official friends of the NRA page
So they support my second amendment rights unless I am in their offices?
Which I never intend to visit!
So here I am wondering if I have to sell my yeti's

This is the standard risk policy for all large companies. It's all part of risk management and lowering liability and insurance policies.

I will 2nd Rtic coolers. Did a lot of searching on the internet before I bought mine. Not only were they much cheaper but their replacement parts and accessories were way cheaper.
Same here. Own 3 Rtics and will probably buy more.

Nope, I am standing right where this photo was supposedly taken and there is no sign. I am in Austin today.

The photo is taken at their flagship store in Austin, bar is up the left, custom shop and live music stage. No discounts.

Rtic is where it's at.
I read that Rtic has to redesign all their products that infringed on Yeti's patent according to their settlement in February of this year. This includes tumblers, hard sided coolers, etc... It will be interesting to see if their new products still perform at the lower price.

Uhh, if it's a bar it should have firearms prohibited signs.
looks like a texas flag on the wall, may not be a issue there.

Almost bought a Yeti because they made a cooler that had the dimensions I needed. "Very limited on the size I could fit in the boat"

Then I went and looked at them in the store. I actually laughed out loud when I saw how small they were inside. The cooler in question was supposedly 20 quarts larger than what I had. No freaking way! It was smaller than what I currently have. How they can get away with marketing a particular size and not even come close as beyond me.

I found exactly what I needed with the Icey-Tek brand for half the cost.
