My close friend came to visit and wanted to go snorkeling. Rather than to get the big coolers for just the 2 of us. This was a perfect size for 6 pk btl Heinekin, 6 btl waters and 4 cans of sodas with lots of Ice just from my fridge. Off we went to the Beach. Quik and Easy at a moment notice. It was so Handy for the week he was here, We took this cooler everywhere for everything. It held my 2 bottle of wines just to park at the beach side in the evenings and sip wine. In case you haven't notice where he came from there is no beaches... and he loves the beach. He loved this cooler so much he took it to remember our time together. Yeah right.. He just loved that Cooler. So I got to get me another one.
I had seen other reviews of it having leaking issues, but didn't realize how much it would actually leak. No matter how many times I tried to make sure the lid was screwed on correctly and tightly, it would leak (A LOT) out of the sides under the lid. The first time we used it, it had fallen on it's side and got everything underneath and around it wet. There's definitely a serious manufacturing defect on these, so until Rubbermaid fixes the lid, recommend not purchasing.
