With a capacity of 70 Quart and made out of the Rotomolded Polyethylene material, Igloo Yukon Cold Locker Cooler weighs about 34 lbs. It comes with a 5-year warranty as has dimensions of 16 x 21.5 x 36 inches. Marketed and manufactured by Igloo.
A score 7 is amazing on insulation parameter, which means the cooler can easily keep the food safe for days, which its ice retention is 6 whole days. It might not be as good as other high end models giving a 7-day ice retention feature but it is good enough for long weekend trips and parties where you get as much as 6 days to enjoy so the food and col beverages will remain frosty, fresh and won’t deteriorate.
An 8 under the durability parameter is a very impressive score. This shows the strength and stability of the cooler. It has been created in a way as to tolerate harshness or whacks done on its exterior. It also owes its strength to the thick extended handles it is attached with. The drain plug of Yukon is made of metal and so it looks like it was designed keeping in view its durability for a lifetime. It has scored even better than a few high end cooler models. The metal plug leash is so that it gives the required toughness to the whole body it is attached to.
Yukon has extended handles which are not movable but stationary and thus it remains easier to be carried and loaded in a vehicle. However, it might not be as easy to carry as flexi handles. Since they are not flexible and don’t move, this also means that when the person is walking on a rough surface carrying it, the weight of the cooler won’t be evenly distributed and it might be a little stressful for the person. It is heavier in its weight as compared to other models. Nevertheless, it features reversible feet. This means that on one side they are smooth and on the other, they are rubberized.
Ease of Use
Yukon has scored one of the best marks in ease of use and operability. It boasts about an easy operating lid that will remain open as long as you want it to, its simply amazing latches and an easy-to-function drain plug. It is famous for not splashing water as well as entirely draining and that too in speed. The drain plug leash is large and so it remains out of way when draining nd you can easily tie it up on the hard handles. However, its large size may happen to have some ice cubes lost.
Yukon has scored not so much in the Features parameter. It has quite mediocre features with nothing that could be said out of ordinary. It has a lid ruler by default, its reversible feet allows for a convenient side to be chosen for either slide-ability or traction, has hinges as pin styled, has external latches and a long drain plug leash. But this set of features didn’t offer Yukon a very high score and it managed to earn only 5.
The Igloo Yukon Cold Locker Cooler 70 Quart without doubt has scored great in ease of use as well as how durable and strong it is but failed to earn points in features, which are quite ordinary and has nothing unique to offer. However, its insulation features and reversible feet do keep it quite sought after among buyers.
