Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cooler for All Uses! I use this cooler for everything. I leave it in my car, it's awesome for quick trips that come up. I bring it to the beach, BBQ, put cold meats/dairy in there when I'm driving from far away grocery stores. When bringing cold meats/ribs to a BBQ, I put a couple cold packs in there and it keeps it really cold until it's ready for the grill. The handles are nice because they fall to the sides vs sticking out. I used it during Hurricane Dorian by filling it up with water. On the side of the cooler is a poor spout, which is super nice because you can leave it open when it's filled with ice to drain liquid, or when the ice totally melts and it's too heavy to lift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More like 4 1/2 Stars! If used correctly I hear a lot about how this (and other budget) cooler doesn't keep ice 3 days as advertised. First off, why would anyone expect that? That's if conditions are perfect. Every cooler including the high dollar roto molded one, must be pre-chilled (12 hrs. recommended) and you have to put cold/chilled product in prior to icing everything down. I've had this cooler for several years and (if prepped correctly) I get at least 2+ days of cold. Works even better if I use reusable ice bricks. Darn near freezes everything in the cooler. Rugged and you can actually sit on it without the top caving in. Carry handles are sufficient but I'd like to see a better grip (I'll probably modify myself). The ONE "negative" issue that I've had with the cooler is the hinges. They do hold up fine but no screws - just popped into holes. my solution was to fill with Gorilla Glue and worked good. If you're going to the lake, beach, etc. for 2-3 day trip, this if perfect for a family/group of 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old family item My family's had the red color of this product for as long as I've been around (30+ years) and it still serves its purpose really well. We put our last name on the lid so people would know who's it was in a public setting but I've since written over the old name with the new name. The drain plug doesn't work so good anymore but I modified an old champagne cork to fix that issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40 years and still going Bought one of these 40 years ago and used it 20 or 30 times a year. The hinges finally failed this week. To my amazement I found new Coleman replacement hinges for $7. I'll be back in another 40 years for parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used and abused but keeps coming back 4 more! My scout unit has 4 of these that we keep using over and over. We go camping at least 6 times a year, and these coolers keep coming back for more. Ok, the hinges have had to be replaced, and the racoons got into it once but we learned to keep the cast iron pans on them after that, but still, great coolers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Cooler We ordered this cooler online because we needed a good medium size cooler for a upcoming camping trip. There was a slight issue with the shipping address but Coleman was super helpful on the phone and got it resolved quickly. We received the cooler 2 days later. We have loved the size of this cooler!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coleman Esky cooler This is a big thick cooler that competes with the expensive brand. Great cooler with built in cutting board. Holds ice for several days, but you have to prechill before loading food in. There is a lot of mass to chill. I use frozen water bottles the day before to chill it. Great handles and latches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My go-to cooler! Have several of these coolers and really like them. They are dependable, do a decent job keeping things cooler, are a nice size (not too big, not too small), and have a nice drain to keep things dry. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Affordable but flimsy Holds ice well. Handles are flimsy and cheap plastic. Hinges are plastic and could probably wear out and come apart at some point. Worth about 20 bucks but does the job. Get what you pay for you at this discounted price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 3rd cooler My 3rd cooler. I like the flat inside and the way the handles swing. Top does not stay open unless pushed back gently for a few seconds. This will change after use and plastic hinges get a memory like my others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coleman quality! I have had this cooler for decades and it was great until last year when the hinges broke but I just noticed the Coleman website has the hinges for sale so I'm back in business!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ice melts way too fast This was for a one day holiday party. I bought it because it said it would keep Ice for 3 days. The ice literally lasted 3 hours and it was not one of the hottest days.
