each one with ice...and sealed them tight. after 12 hours, i measured how much ice had melted. the yeti and ozark lost exactly the same amount of water...2 ounces. the subzero lost one and half ounces, but since the subzero was 30% smaller than the other two.... it actually saw more ice melt. at 24 hours, i drained each cup again. the yeti and ozark lost identical amounts once again, 6 and three quarter ounces. the subzero lost 4 and a half ounces, a slightly bigger percentage of melting. finally, at the two day mark, at 48 hours, all the ha melted...except for one tiny piece of ice....in walmart's ozark trail cup. --so in the end we're calling it a tie...between the yeti and walmart's ozark trail.
