Having owned this cooler for about 1 year now, I have found it to be extremely versatile for camping, backyard parties, shopping for frozen foods and boating. The size is perfect and the ice packs last for days. I have used ice and have had it last 5 days while camping. The only drawback to this cooler is that given its high performance, there is an issue with the quality of the latches and hinges. On my cooler, the first latch broke off during the first use while camping, the second within a week after the first. The hinges lasted a little longer at about 3 months. Igloo does make heavy duty latches and hinges and are simple to replace the originals. The drawback is that I paid more for these parts than I originally paid for the cooler. The handles are fine for moving when empty, but when it is full it's pretty much staying put! The handles are a bit weak and poorly positioned. They have no upgrade other than exact replacement. Now that the cooler is upgraded, I think that there are many 100 qt. coolers out there that are perfect to start with, that don't cost over a hundred dollars when your finished. Use your own judgement. But this holds the cold better than any Coleman I have owned. Plus it is just the right size!
