Useless Handle

The handle on this thing is a joke. I’d seen other reviews stating the same problems, but because of the overall high ratings decided to give it a try. 1) The handle is too short. I am only 5’5” and I would have to stoop quite a bit to roll this thing, which is not a great option when transporting a heavy cooler. 2) The handle does not lock into place, so now you have to not only navigate the awkward height, but good luck getting and keeping the thing moving. If you’re looking for a straightforward product that gets the job done I’d go with the Igloo Wheelie. I just purchased my second of these when this Coleman product let me down. To be honest, the construction feels the same on both—Is have been shocked if the Coleman kept ice any longer than the Igloo. I’ll think twice before trusting this brand again.


Awesome New Cooler for 2013

Found this cooler at my local store and it was love at first sight. It seems to be working perfectly. Ive only had it for 3 days but once I got it home I loaded it about halfway with water, a couple trays of ice cubes and (2) one gallon Gatorade container frozen solid ice blocks, and the water is still ice cold with the Gatorade blocks being about half frozen still. Pretty good considering there's a ton of air space in the cooler and the temps in my garage have been hitting the 80's and 90's the last few days. No leaking at all. Decently comfortable to sit on for a good amount of time and there's no issues with the handle or wheels, so far they're sturdy enough to get the job done. If you drive a Silverado Classic the height doesnt go past the top of the bed which is one of the reasons I got this size as I plan to get a tonneau cover sometime soon. Happy camping, partying & tailgating!


Excellent cooler for a 3-4 day camping trip

I purchased this cooler for a 3 day camping trip at a campsite with very limited facilities. No running water to be specific. I couldn't be more pleased with its performance. Instead of traditional bags of ice, I just froze a bunch of drinking water in plastic bottles. As it melted, I used it as drinking water. Half of them still had ice in them long after I got home. The drain plug is in a great spot for good drainage. The wheels make it very easy to tote around even on gravel, sand, and loose soil. The telescoping handle is great, but a little on the flimsy side. I wouldn't man-handle it too much. Use a little caution and it should be fine. The cooler itself offers a lot of room and is of good construction. The lid closes securely and doubles as a seat with cup holders. For the price, you really can't find a better cooler. If you pack it properly and treat it with a small amount of care, it will keep items cold for up to 4 days and should hold up to many uses. This cooler would be incredible as a day use picnic, party, or tailgating item. It really holds the cold. Just remember, it's up to the user to pack it correctly.


Best bang for the buck

There are cheap coolers that keep ice for a while, and there are stupidly expensive coolers (yeti, frigid rigid, engel, icy tek) that cost a few hundred dollars but keep ice for a week. The Coleman 50 quart Xtreme wheeled cooler will hold ice for ALMOST a week, so it's in the same realm as coolers costing 10 times as much. It won't beat those really expensive coolers, but it will be in the same ballpark for ice retention. It's isn't built as well as them (gasket lid, stainless hardware, etc) but having a regular hinge is much better than My previous wheeled cooler had the wheels going the other way, (both on the narrow side) so you had to lift it by the handle to pull it along. This one simply tilts, so you don't need to be partially lifting the cooler to drag it along. Also, my old cooler barely made it through a day. Using the same cooler tactics that I did before (ice it down ahead of time, only put cold food/beverages in it, keep it full, minimize number of times you open it, make sure lid is closed, don't drain melted water) I can keep ice for a few days now. It's the only $30 cooler that can keep up with the $300 ones. It can't beat them, but it's $30!


be cautious

I bought this cooler and did not think to check that the drainage plug worked correctly until I was about to use it! The drainage plug had been flipped up and trapped beneath the wheels. The wheels easily popped off to release the plug, but the plug was deformed and no longer worked. Clearly, quality control in manufacturing missed this defect. Returning the cooler and replacing it was not a problem and was handled very well by a different Walmart than where I had purchased it. Consistent with what other reviewers have said, the cooler did not keep food chilled for 5 days (as advertised), but it did a good job for 3 days. It also did not perform well with frozen ice packs and a small amount of cold food (considerably less than 50 qts).
