Spend the few extra bucks
The cooler carried in my local store looks similar and is about $8 cheaper. The difference is no drain and no insulation. Total ice meltdown on the cheap one is part of one day. This cooler will keep ice for two days and stay cold for three. Spend the extra money and wait a few days for store delivery. It’s well worth it!
Good value, Nice Cooler
Be aware, this cooler does not have a drain plug. No issue for me since I purchased the cooler as a bait live well and fish cooler. Seems fine as far as durability is concerned. I put 80 pounds of water in the cooler with a pump for aeration, and so far it's held up fine. Typical plastic hinges which require replacement every couple of years with heavy use, but they're inexpensive and no big deal to replace. All in all, a good value for the money.
the perfect size to handle the food and drinks I usually pack. I like that it has a drain and I like the handles that slide up when in use and lay flat when in storage.
Perfect cooler for my DIY project
Probably not worth it
I bought this cooler due to very specific size constraints. It is advertised as a three day cooler- not even close! Temps are currently in the 60s overnight and this cooler can't hold ice one night. I also don't care for the hinges. I spotted the hinge issue before purchase but gave it a try due to size. The hinge is just a plastic flap. Seems like it will eventually break. Also, it means the lid always wants to close so you only get one hand to work in the cooler. We have the cheap $15 Igloo and I would say in general it is better. I wanted the drain plug that the Coleman includes, that's why I gave it a try. Also, not happy with the Walmart pricing. Bought it on "sale." Next day I got an ad where it was $10 less at Dick's (and Dick's everyday price is apparently better). Walmart online couldn't help but said customer service in store would price match. Going to Walmart is such a pain that it will cost me more than $10 in my time and sanity, so Walmart wins 'cause I won't bother. Bottom line: this cooler is for very temporary transport, not going to keep anything in it for any length of time. In that case, don;t need the drain plug and the similar Igloo is a better buy.
