Most all of our customers ask what's the difference between the major sunglasses manufactures polarized lenses.  So why not put them to the test and let you decide.  You tell us...what do you think?

Oakley - Flak Jacket

Sunglasses used are in stock items at Patriot Jacks Outfitters.  Pictures were taken with a Samsung S5 .... that was all I had to work with this morning (results may vary if using better technology).

Yeti Hopper 30 - My new favorite

Yeti Hopper 30 Soft Sided Cooler - The way to go!!

 

About 2 years ago I got my first Yeti cooler - Tundra 45 Tan.  This cooler has lived on the back of my truck and can tell stories, even some that I dont remember.  My 45 has went camping, beach, mountain and numerous tail gates.  It was the only cooler that I would ever use until ..... The Hopper 30 soft side.  The hopper will hold ice for an entire weekend (longer if needed).  The major plus of this cooler over my Tundra 45 is the weight difference.  If I put a case of beer and ice in my 45, it is all I can do to move it around.  I can put a case of beer and ice in the Hopper, and throw the should strap over my shoulder and go wherever the party goes.  The hopper doesn't sweat or leak water at any point.  Since the hopper has come along, my Tundra 45 is feeling a little left out.
