I bought this due to its large size and low price after a good amount of research. I just could not justify paying $400+ on premium coolers such as Pelican or Yeti. I took this along with 3 other ice chests I own in the standard <$100 price range on my camping trip. My buddy took along 4 himself, so we had 8 coolers. All were loaded with drinks and food and ice to the brim. We camped in the Arizona summer head from Thursday night through Sunday and when we left camp this is the only one with ice. All the other coolers had water, while this was still 2/3 full of ice! I was so impressed I ordered a second so I have more than enough for my next trip for food and drinks for everyone. The only drawback is that this can be quite heavy if full and 2 men likely are needed to load it into or out of the truck.
Used for 7 day camping trips, had to re-ice on day 5 it was still cold inside but needed to add more to get back to a inside temp of 40 degrees.
Pros: Keeps items cold, large enough for lots of stuff. Cost was less than other brands. Lid fits well. No tilt drain. Sturdy enough to have 3 adults sit on it. has slots on inside for several dividers (dividers do not come with the cooler).
Cons: Weak looking hinges (have not failed but looks like it will over time). Lid has no clasp.
Overall I would purchase this again and it was $20 less than others that were same size.
I used two of these coolers to bring a moose back from a hunt in Newfoundland. It was a 3 day drive and when I arrived home, there was still ice in the bags we put in the coolers with the meat. One cooler was damaged by a bear in camp. The bear bit into the outside case, puncturing into the insulation material. The cooler still worked fine.
This cooler holds temperature and humidity really well, is lightweight, and insulated very well. If I could offer Coleman one piece of advice to make it better, swap out the hinges. Right now the hinges are pieces of plastic. Actual hinges with a pin would likely last longer.
Still, I would recommend this if you need a large cooler in a budget model.
I prefer the lid on this Coleman, push it shut and it seals vs. the Igloo cooler (which I have two of). The Igloo latch is weak and will break, you don't have to worry about that on the Coleman. The Coleman really icloses down tight. I had 4 blocks of ice in the cooler, and after 5 days I would say they melted to about 50%. The temperature outside was cooler, 50's, so that might have helped keep the ice from completing melting.
Pros: Great cooler
Cons: For it's size it really needs rollers as it is quite heavy when full.
This cooler is great. Rainwater does not leak in like it does on the Igloos. It seems pretty sturdy too.
My husband needed this for a hunting trip. It is great. It's well made. Large capacity. Can't say enough.
this is a great cooler. It's huge too! Holds alot! I put 5 jugs of ice in it and I put a blanket over the top of it to help insulate and it had no problem keeping everything inside very cold for 7 days! It sat outside the whole 7 days in temperatures ranging from 40 degrees at night to 80 degrees in the day! It is a sturdy built cooler and the lid closes very snug! And i like the big carry handles too! get it and you will be glad you did!
The cooler is a great buy but I could not rate it 5 stars for 2 issues: (1)Hinges are plastic and I know from experience that will not last when used frequently and (2) The plastic friction-fit drain plug is going to break so I replaced it with a 1/2 threaded brass cap. The thread is an SAE thread and easily accepts the brass fitting.
This cooler is big enough to store and/or chill lots of food and drinks. The handles on both sides make it easy to carry when it is full. It is sturdy and built well. If you need a big cooler for camping, fishing or to use during the holidays, I recommend you by this one. The brand says it all.
I purchased this Coleman cooler this fall, and is the best cooler i've ever bought. keeps ice for over 5 days. thanks Coleman & Walmart. I now freeze quart bottles to keep it cold & dry inside, works great.
Kept ice for 6 days at about 80 degrees during
the day. Only complaint is the plastic hinges and handles worry me that they'll break. Also, the drain plug pops out too easily. A screw type plug would work better. All in all, great for the price paid. Much better than Igloo's comparable cooler.
Good cooler. You'll need 2 people to carry. Lid fits really snug good but lift from corners to open or you will frustrate yourself. Kneel on lid to sell shut easily.
This cooler stays in the back of my pickup truck under a cover while we are camping. Because of the large size, you can load it with many water filled frozen plastic jugs and you won't need to buy ice for the entire trip.
I needed a large cooler for a family gathering, but didn't want to spend an arm and leg on it. This cooler fit the bill. It's large enough to hold many cans, bottles and a ton of food and it did keep all items cold for a two day period even in 105 degree weather. It's definately a two man job to move it though when full as it's very heavy and no wheels.
i got 4 of these coolers which are a great value for the price. sturdy and large. i was not happy about a shipping mix up. they initially sent me three and when i called they said they thought there was two in one box. quite odd because the three boxes were all the same size. anyhow they fixed it.
Lots of room and nice tight lid to keep the cool in. For the price you can't beat it, especially with the size of this cooler whether you are keeping food and drink, fish or spoils from the hunt, this cooler has plenty of room plus ice.
It kept blocked ice from melting for over 5days on my recent camping trip
I bought this ice chest for 1 purpose, to put a cleaned deer in it. It did the job. I easily fit the deer in it and kept it cold long enough to get it to the butcher a couple days later.
Hey, its a coleman. it ain't as good as the old coleman steel belted coolers but it'll keep ice for a couple days.
