Wow, wow, wow! This cooler looks intimidating and impressive! Simply put - it looks heavy duty and like it puts its rivals and competitors to shame. It's not only impressive with it's appearance, it impresses with its performance as well. This cooler is super sturdy and well made. It isn't too heavy on its own, but once it's loaded with beverages and ice, the comfort grip handles will be a welcomed relief once you start lugging this around. A few features I love on this cooler are the wire basket inside, the t-handle latches, the cup holders on top of the cooler, and the measuring tool on the cooler as well - nice little touch! Although the cup holders on top of the cooler are a little shallow, they're a thoughtful touch, and they come in handy. I used this cooler as a mini-fridge on a recent road trip. My friend and I loaded the cooler with lunch meat, condiments, fruits, and veggies and hit the road. This cooler had more than enough room to accommodate our food and drinks. Not only did the food stay cold for DAYS, the ice barely melted. We lugged this into our hotel room and didn't even bother unloading our food into the mini-fridge; we had that much confidence in the cooler. The weather was warm, but the inside of the cooler was ice cold. I am so impressed with this cooler, and I look forward to using it for years to come!
