Since this spring has been very cold and wet here in Wisconsin (expecting snow tomorow!) I'm starting my hops in planters. I've read I can transplant as late as June, but I hope to do it by mid-May....

Glass and Stainless. 6.5 gallon carboys for most batches, stainless conical when I intend to harvest yeast, and sanke kegs for double batches.

+1 (I actually use 1/2 gallon Mason jars...but same idea). You can get a rubber grommet like you get with an ale pale at the hardware store for 20 cents and make it air tight too.

I agree that option 2 affords you the most flexibility and the lowest initial cost. I would still add a braid\valve to the round cooler.
