I assume the whole xtreme marine line of coolers is the same quality but this 70 quart version was the perfect size for the back of our Suburban for a long road trip. This kept our frozen and refrigerated foods ice cold and fresh for a two day road trip through warm weather, and when we arrived the bags of ice were still mostly frozen...so I just stuck the ice in the freezer during our stay, and used the same ice coming back home for two days of driving. Same result when we got home. I'm very happy with that performance. Though I was considering the Yeti which costs maybe 6-8x as much, and since I'm not the Old Man and the Sea who's going to be adrift for days and days in the hot sun, the Yeti's likely excess performance is more or less of no use to me. No offense to Yeti, it's a cool product, but when this Coleman cooler is available at its price point, a Yeti purchase for me personally would have been a status symbol only. Maybe this cooler will fall apart a lot sooner than a Yeti...maybe I'll update this review once I get it out on the boat and bash it around a bit, but it appears to be well made and like I said, I could buy about six more of these later in life before spending the full Yeti cost. Also, this shipped free to my house in about one day's time...not saying you'll get the same result, but that was awesome for my transaction.
