    Is this cooler comparable to a Yeti or Engel cooler, or notably inferior?

    BEST ANSWER: I've been shopping for the ultimate cooler and bought this at a steal. Here's my requirements that were carefully reviewed and analyzed:
    *Prefer USA manufactured or even better USA materials plus manufactured here. This is made in China :(
    *Thickest insulation possible, above 1.5" prefer 3" just cause I'm greedy
    *Either a wicked color scheme or extremely light colored exterior. Personal flare vs better uv/heat dissipation.
    *Larger than 20 liter/quart but none above 30. Just personal use for Corona bottles which would require enough interior height storage.
    *LIFETIME WARRANTY a must, I plan on this being my last REAL cooler. Not interested in lesser offered warranties just out of rigidity concerns if a item costs more it should be better and better, just sayin.
    *Bottle opener a must because I drink sealed bottle beer. If I'm opening the cooler I'm gonna open a brew-sky.....ALL with one hand!
    *PRICE, PRICE, PRICE. Even if I had to buy 3 or 4 more of the product (hopefully not knock on wood), does it really need to be soooo expensive. It's not even powered cooling for Christs' sake lol. I could buy a refrigerator with freezer for the price a Yeti?!
    *Bear Proof is a waste of time in my areas of activity, there are very very few that exist here and quite frankly if a bear wants in a plastic cooler just take a look at the discovery channel and you tell me. Ridiculously unnecessary and merely a sales gimmick of durability plastic vs bear....duh!
    *Tie downs are definitely tactical. Most come with this unless they are cheap or really small in general.
    *Prefer a drain plug I can screw directly into my garden hose for easy cleaning. Although, this cooler may be suspect to leakage and or breaking at the plug cap but I can easily fix that without voiding warranty. Buy a brass or copper garden hose thread cap with a nice rubber gasket, voila!
    *Carry handles/bar must be extremely durable because of full capacity weight tolerance factor.
    No bear worries if you eat it first ;)Peace
    How many cans of soda or bottles of water can you fit in the Emperor 25 cooler?
    Cody S on May 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The Pure Outdoor Emperor 25 Cooler can hold approximately 14 cans (Using the recommended 2:1 ratio of ice to contents).
    I got the cooler. I love it. I have one problem with it. I'm trying to install a valve on the drain, but nothing matches the threading. It's not standard hose threading. It's not pvc threading. Nothing from the hardware store matches. It's driving me crazy. Does anyone know where I can find something that fits it?

    For those of you that have one, what is the actual weight of the Emperor 25? On Monoprice it says 23.6, but the one I just got is 19 pounds. I want to make sure mine is normal.
    Charles T on Aug 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I get 20.6 on my bathroom scale.
    What are the dimensions ?
    A shopper on Aug 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The Pure Outdoor Emperor 25 Cooler Dimensions the following:
    Exterior Dimensions: 22.8" x 15.0" x 15.0"
    Interior Dimensions: 16.7" x 10.0" x 10.8"
    Would it be safe to sous vide foods in this cooler? How hot can it get?
    A shopper on Sep 27, 2017
    what is the outside mentioned?
    A shopper on Sep 23, 2017
    What color is the 25, white or grey?
    John B on Aug 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The cooler is gray in color. I would also recommend it as it has worked out perfect for us. Good quality product.
    Hope this helps. Ron
    Does the cooler have tie down slots? So I can tie it down and still open it?
    Richard L on Apr 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, I never noticed b4 you asked, but there are two slots one on each side of the cooler when opened.. Theses slots are in between where the ropes for the handles are attached. If you look at the pix on Monoprice site, the second pix you can just barely see them when magnified. And it looks like it would accept a flat nylon strap and still close.. By the way it has a can opener and a place to lock it when closed!

    Good Luck
    Does the 25 seriously weigh 23.6 lbs empty?? I'm trying to decide between the (apparently) comparable Yeti Roadie & RTIC 20, which show as 15 & 17.5 lbs respectively. As a smallish woman using it alone, every pound will matter!
    Leslie B on Sep 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I get 20.6 lb on my bathroom scale. This thing is well built and well insulated so one would expect it to be heavy. The two sets of handles do make it a little easier to carry.
    Are the hinges rugged? Plastic that might wear out or break?
    A shopper on Apr 23, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: The hinges are molded into the lid and body of the cooler. There is a metal rod (unseen) that goes through both halves. Not likely at all to break or wear out. The only weak point might be the metal caps that hold the hinge pin place might come out allowing the rod to fall out but I think it would easy to fix
    Is this cooler food safe?
    A shopper on Aug 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It keeps food cold for several days. Does that answer your question?
    What is the hinge construction?
    A shopper on Sep 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: A metal rod, looks to be aluminum or stainless. The rod alternates thru the cooler and the lid flanges to make the hinge.
    How many cans will fit into the 25? Cant decide between that and the 50...
    A shopper on Aug 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The Pure Outdoor Emperor 25 Cooler can hold 14 Cans using the recommended 2:1 ratio of ice to contents. The Pure Outdoor Emperor 50 Cooler can hold 32 cans using the recommended 2:1 ratio of ice to contents.
    Does the drain plug use same thread as a Yeti? I have a hose adapter for a Yeti and was wondering if it would work with the Pure Outdoor.
    A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes a hose fitting does fit on the drain fitting of the cooler
    For the 50 cooler is 18" for the width or height?

    Unsure if it has a defect or not?
    I purchased the 80L and 25L cooler. On the 80L, the bottle cap opener is aligned so that when the lid is closed you can place a lock through it. However, on the 25L, the bottle cap opener blocks the hole from allowing a lock to be placed through it. It appears that when the hole was stamped out of the bottle opener it was done so that it does not line up with the holes drilled in the cooler for a lock to fit. The hole on the opposite side of the cooler to allow a lock to fit is also slightly offline with the metal plate that the lock would go through. This is true of both coolers. They are both also heavy which I assume means they are well insulated to allow ice to melt slower. They are definitely a 2 person carry cooler. having the option to have wheels would be a welcomed add on feature that I would gladly pay more for. Would also be nice to have a divider or basket to keep items separated. One thing I do really like is that the 25L fits perfectly inside the 80L for storage so it takes up less space.

    Great cooler
    As a fishing guide I needed a cooler that I could bring into the raft and hold ice for extended amounts of time to keep food and drinks cold for clients. I was sick.of having to buy ice every day to throw in my cheapo cooler. I figured spending some money on a good cooler would pay itself off with not having to buy ice everyday. I wasn't about to drop the money on a cooler for the name so I shopped around and this one had all the features I wanted in a smaller cooler. Rope handles instead of a stupid bar and slots to be able to strap it down into my raft. I've had it for a few weeks and I'm happy with it. Had a beer out of it yesterday that was still ice cold and sitting in there for a week without changing ice. So far my only gripe is it's very tough to put a padlock on it due to the thickness of it. I was able to but it was enough of a pain in the ass that I'd rather not do it again.

    Emperor 25 cooler
    Great price and it is the size of the Yeti 45. Keeps ice for days . I wish it can with a divider and basket. I got a basket from the competition and it got it to work.

    25 qt
    Used it three times and I have to say, I'm impressed. Due to the price difference, there is no way I would buy the top end brands. I'm sure this one isn't a Yeti or RTIC but I don't think you would notice the difference and for $99.00, its a steal.

    A Top 10 Must Buy!!
    Comparable to a Grizzly or Yeti Cooler for 1/3 of the price!

    Excellent Cooler
    I was interested in a "long duration" cooler, but couldn't justify paying the premium on other brands (Yeti/Orca/Grizzly). I bought the 25 Pure Outdoor and couldn't be happier. The Bottle opener is a nice feature to have and I really prefer the dual handles as opposed to other brands' single metal handle. The only critique I have is that the drain plug should have a chain or string to keep it connected to the cooler when you open the drain. I have had ice last 4 days with no real issues in varying heat and sunlight levels.

    Great cooler at much better price than others. I like the built in bottle opener. Delivered when it was promised.

    This is a real good chest. Very heavy duty. Appearance is like a Yeti but the price is much more reasonable. I would recommend to others but keep in mind that it is a little heavy when loaded.

    Great little cooler
    Call it a YETI knock-off if you wish but I think of it as the best 25L cooler I've ever seen for $99.99. I keep this in the back of my SUV to fill up with groceries when I shop on the way to work...they stay nice and cool all day long in my parked car...under a couple of large blue ice packs, the frozen things are still frozen! Highly recommended.
