Brute Box Outdoor Ice Chest Cooler Review

A Brute ice chest comes with a lifetime warranty and it is made in the USA. Brute coolers are filled with pressure injected insulation to provide maximum ice retention capability. These coolers give you a rubber, leak proof, tight seal around the lid, drain plugs to make cleaning and draining easier on you, and rubber latches which utilize a cantilever hinge system. Brute Coolers (sometimes call Bison Coolers) are built to be durable, no matter what adventure you are planning. They are strong enough to hold a persons bodyweight if you need to sit or stand on it, yet are still lighter weight than many other cooler brands of a comparable size.Brute Box Outdoors Cooler

How Does A Brute Ice Chest Compare To Yeti or Grizzly?

Brute Outdoors Ice Chest Review

Bison Latching System

If you are wondering how Brute coolers compare against other high end coolers, such as Yeti or Grizzly, then look no further. Not only do they all have different price ranges, but a variety of other differences as well.

Many find that the Brute is easier to carry when compared to a Yeti thanks to rope handles and built in handles. The Brute also has more interior area than the Yeti, due to a difference in insulation technologies used. Brute is made in the USA, Yeti is partially made in the USA using parts from the Philippines. The Brute also has built in rulers on the larger coolers and dual drain plugs, which Yeti’s may not have.

As to how it compares to Grizzly coolers, most people feel that the main difference are the aesthetic features. For instance, some will like the color of one brand versus the color of the other. However we feel the latch is better on the Grizzly cooler because it fits flush against the cooler. But again, these are very subjective based on personal preference. In short, deciding which is best, will most likely boil down to how much you want to spend and what features you find most appealing to you.

Bison Coolers Final Thoughts

Gray Bison Cooler For many of our readers one of the top selling points of a Bison is the fact that it is USA made. Additionally, the pressure injection insulation provides superior ice retention abilities. We will be attempting to test a Brute Box in the near future to see just how these compare to other prestigious name-brand coolers. However, we must say that the Five Year Warranty alone is enough to justify considering this cooler.
