well, it works. we had one just like it a couple years ago and it was great, worked well but we left it outside too long and it got too yucky so we threw it out and ordered another because the price is reasonable. the handle and wheels are very convenient and it's easy to move around. we filled it with ice and water bottles and juice pouches at my son's birthday party and it sat in direct sun for hours and kept them cold all day. in fact, it set outside for a couple days after and there was still ice in it until around day 3.
