I bought this cooler for it's size,quality and affordability. I mainly use it to keep my fruits and veggies fresh by adding ice in it, it does a great job, definitely works for me.
This is the standard cooler Coleman has put out for years and it is only okay. I found ice melted sooner in this cooler than in my other cooler (which is an xtreme cooler). For short periods, this one will be fine and it's relatively compact (which I like), but for longer periods, you're better off getting a newer version with better insulation.
I bought this at promotional price,not the best cooler, but worth the price, the lid is a little tight, not easy to open, and it can keep cold for half day.
A great size at 48 quarts with sturdy handles and a lightweight design. Fits in my car really well. We could not get the thing open when we received it. It took some prying and we thought it was defective. We eventually realized it has great suction, which helps to keep the food cold. We had to stand behind the cooler and pull the lid up from behind.. It annoyed us at first, but the more we used it, the easier it was to open it. The cooler can be loaded it up with drinks and a picnic for 8 with no problem. After all this time it doesn't leak and keeps things cold for 24-48 hours; depending upon how many times I lift the lid. This cooler works perfectly and also can hold a lot of weight. i filled it up with water several times to put out our campfire and the handles seemed like it could hold very well. I like this cooler.
It is spacious than I thought. Good cooler for a good value.
Perfect fit for large as well as small gatherings. Holds cool at least for 24 hours. I like the drain system at the bottom. Very easy to carry. I always like Coleman product.
I bought this same model cooler about 20 yrs. ago- they were red back then. It's held up nicely and works great. A couple of yrs. ago it developed a small split in the outer plastic on the backside, but I haven't noticed any difference in its "performance". These coolers are rarely available for less than twenty. At fifteen, it's a great deal, and I like the blue better than the red. :) Highly recommended at this price.
Great value for the dollar!! Very happy with this purchase.
This is a great cooler for the price, very inexpensive and affortable. The handles make it easy to carry around and the walls are not too thin so it should be able to keep things cool for some time. The only thing I don't like is the flip/hinge. The top doesn't really stay open or popped up. The hinge forces the top to close down unless you continue to press on the top to force it to open. This makes loading the cooler a bit difficult as you have to keep one hand on the lid to keep it from closing on you.
This is a great cooler that I purchased for my son. Everyone needs a cooler. It is a perfect size. We have not tried it yet, but I am sure it will be fine.
