The high end coolers like Yeti, Engel, Frigid Rigid, Pelican et al are not so much about cold-keeping capability, which can be imitated for less, as they are about durability. They are most popular with the intense fishing and hunting crowd who are constantly taking them on and off the boat, standing and sitting on them and generally beating them up. Do some guys who don't subject them to that sort of abuse buy them as a status symbol? Sure. My Timex Expeditions keep just as good or better time than a Rolex or IWC or Tag Heuer.
