I needed a new cooler and immediately looked to see what Coleman was putting out nowadays. Based on the manufacturer's description, this cooler seemed to have everything I was looking for. Size and cold retaining capabilities. I checked out Coleman and Cabelas and they both wanted about $100 for it. I checked Walmart and it was only $48. First, it's huge. I mean really big, I can fit a person in there. It also has a groove a little less than 1/2 way down and so I nicked a shelf from a small fridge I had - put it in and it fit perfectly. We used it just last weekend. Because we were attending an all day show, I froze up 4 large 12x9x6 blocks of ice. The cooler kept the food and beverages cold. I had more ice than food. However, it didn't retain the ice like it indicated it could. There was quite a bit of water in the bottom. So, bottom line is, it doesn't quite live up to its claim, but it works well, and has a large capacity, and for $48 at Walmart, it's a good buy. I wouldn't pay $100 for it however.
