- I never thought I'd buy a $400 cooler,and now we're gonna destroy it.
Whoa!- Welcome back to What's Inside?I'm Lincoln and this is Dan, and todaywe are wearing safety glasses.
- Safety first, or second.
- And we have a $400 Yeti cooler.
- Have you guys seen these things?$400 for a cooler!Why does it cost so much?You can see how big it is.
It's pretty heavy.
It has some nice handles on the side,with this little rope and the plastic on here.
♪ Oh yeah ♪- And then to open it up, they saythat it is bear-proof, with this.
So bears don't know how to come in and do that.
- Bears apparently aren't very smart.
- They're not smart, but they are strong and good at eating.
- So this cooler issupposed to be the top of the line,the greatest cooler that you can buy.
I've seen them with, a lot of times, in camping stores.
We've cut open a Yeti cup.
(cup clatters)This, we have tested it out on a couple of campouts,and it works like a gem.
I put hamburgers in here that were frozen.
The next day we went to make the hamburgers,and they were still frozen and I was kind of sad.
This is what's inside of it.
- The walls are so thick on this, like not even the top.
Do not get inside of this.
Don't put children inside of this.
There's the logo right here that says,what does it say, Lincoln?- Certified Bear-Resistant.
- You can see how big it is on the outside,and then if you look on the inside, like Lincoln said,you can see that the walls are really really thick.
A thought behind it is very similar to the Yeti cup.
It has metal on the outside.
Metal on the inside.
And then on the middle of it there's a gap.
And it has this insulatedvacuum packed air that's in there.
We decided that we wanna give youthe cleanest cut that we can get.
And so we came to the same place that we cut openour car engine, and we have a giant band saw.
So check this thing out.
This is huge blade, this should be able to do the job.
It's gonna go right through it, just like butter.
We are also going to get a cheap Cullman cooler,like the cheapest ones that are like $20,and show you the difference between those,because there's definitely a big difference.
- Big difference.
(upbeat music)- It's pretty nice, I've gotta admit.
I never thought I'd buy a $400 cooler.
Woo, that was loud.
And now we're gonna destroy it.
Here we go.
(upbeat music)It's gonna be good.
We had to flip it aroundbecause of the way the blade goes.
We've got a GoPro up here to capture the shot.
There's your Yeti.
- Lincoln, green button.
Touch the green button nicely.
This one right there.
- That one? - Start Cutting button.
Did you do it?Nope, try again.
Is this the button?Start Cutting button?You don't have the skills to pay the bills, buddy.
- It's already touching it.
- Let's see.
Oh!Look at that!This is so much faster than the engine.
I think we cut a lot of it out of the video.
We were here for probably six hours that night.
But man, look at that!(upbeat music)Here we go, Yeti!Go, go, go!- And we got it!Yep.
- And we're done.
And we push the Stop Cutting button.
We did it! - That was so easy.
Three minutes and 45 seconds.
- Three minutes, 45 seconds.
Is this thing all just plastic?Maybe there's no metal in it.
All I really see.
- [Lincoln] Is shavings.
- Is shavings, but I don't really see metal shavings.
I see plastic.
Oh!Did you see it break open?This igloo cooler was $50.
It was on sale.
So it's much cheaper.
What is it made of?We're gonna cut this one, too, and see,that way we can compare inside.
What do you get out of a $400 cooler and a $50 cooler?The Igloo cooler.
What do you get inside?What keeps your stuff cool?- [Lincoln] It's like foam!Wow!- You do have some actual insulationthat is some foam inside.
It's on the bottom.
- Why is it on the top? - On the top, it doesn'thave it.
It doesn't have it.
I don't know.
Maybe so you can open the lid?- Yeti, Yeti, Yeti.
- Alright, it is the Yeti time.
Let's get this thing open!(angelic music) - Looks like that sameinsulation stuff.
- Hey, it doeshave insulation!I thought for sure it was gonna be likethe Yeti cooler, the Yeti mug that had metalon the inside.
There's no metal.
- And the top is so much thicker,and the walls are much thicker.
- But it does look the same.
Like, it's plastic, and just some foam inside.
- Oh yeah, look at that.
I can make a hole.
I can make a hole.
It's a little stronger.
But I wouldn't say it's that much different.
You can see the inside of the plastic wall,how thick it is or how thin it is.
Look at the inside of the Yeti.
Look at my finger next to it.
My finger next to that one.
It's like a piece of paper versus a pencil thickness.
The actual plastic that's usedon the outside of both of theseIs definitely thicker with the Yeti.
Look how thin the bottom plastic is.
Look how thick the bottom plastic is with that one.
I'm not overly impressed with the difference betweenthe $400 versus the $50.
Obviously, it has the protection on the top.
It'll stop bears from getting in.
- Which I've never had bearswhen I've camped.
Knock on metal, wood.
Based off of just looking on the inside,let us know your thoughts.
Is there anything unique to this?Would you spend the extra $350 for this guyover the Island cooler?- No way.
- I'm asking them, not you.
- I know, but you could've been asking me.
- I don't wanna ask you.
- Oh, thanks.
Not $350 dollar cooler.
- What cooler do you guys use?And would you use this?Let us know.
That's what's inside of a cooler.
- [Lincoln] I like pencils more than paper.
- [Dan] Oh, that's the answer.
No, that's not the answer.
- That's the, no, no.
- This is it.
