To start this is a heavy duty no messing around Cooler! I seen complaints about how hard it is to unlatch it. Yes you need a little strength but if you drop this cooler or knock it over the contents inside will not come out and get dirty all over the campsite ground which has happen to me many times.
The seals on this are amazing! Very thick seals and quality made that will keep water from coming out or hot hair from entering into the cooler.
There is a 17 inch ruler on top which is nice if you are fishing and want to know real fast if your fish is bigger than your buddies or family member.
The exterior material is extremely well made to withstand even a bear attack if you happen to be camping in area with bears!! There is a area where you can attach a lock which can be nice if you leave your cooler out on the picnic table it will deter someone taking it or can lock it to the table.
I haven't had a chance to see how many days the ice will last on a hot day due to the fact I live in Michigan and it's 35 degrees right now and we're quarantined due to the Coronavirus. But based on the quality that I can see and feel I don't think that will be a problem. If I get two days of holding ice that is plenty for me but based on what the cooler says 4.5 I'm sure it should get close. Keep in mind though if you have four beers in there and nothing else,that will affect the time it holds the ice from melting.
I like the gray and orange color combination also versus the old white or blue,green etc. The material is nice enough that it will not hold dirt like some plastics that have a textured surface. Personally I think I will have many good years to come with this.
