I've had this Cooler for MANY MANY YEARS (At least 7-8yrs) and I have put this thing through some pretty treacherous camping trips, crazy weather sitting outside, plenty of user abuse sitting on, digging around in and packing bags and such on top while rolling out to camp sites or around in general.... Needless to say this cooler is still doing a fantastic job keeping things ice cold and we now live in Scottsdale AZ and filled the cooler up with some adult goodies early for the 4th, and dumped in 20lbs of ice. As most can assume the temps out here are much higher then 90 degrees... The cooler has been sitting in direct sunlight on the pool deck since July 4th morning and even after being opened numerous times, the cooler still has the majority of the ice that was originally put in it friday! :)
The only thing I'm bummed about, is while the cooler is doing a fantastic job and still looks practically brand new... This weekend we noticed the drain nozzle seems to have failed, and now the melting ice drains around the valve which seems to be shifting back and forth freely all of the sudden. Hope we can find a replacement part for it. This cooler has a lot of life left in it otherwise.
