I received this cooler as a gift from my husband. He knew I was tired of having to use his smelly fishing coolers and wanted one of my own for camping. To ensure they would never get mixed up, he got me a pink one! They're available in many more colors not made by other companies. He also purchased the additional padded seat top.
These coolers are similar to some much more expensive high-end brands, but are not an unreasonably priced. They have two drainage plugs on either side which seem like they would be easy to lose since they aren't attached to the cooler in any way. One thing I would have changed was the option of having better handles on either side. The way it is made now makes it awkward to carry with two people.
These coolers are heavy duty and also just heavy. My 40-quart cooler weighs 17 pounds empty! I have used this cooler extensively in the past year and have been very please with its performance. It still looks brand new even with bringing it out on the boat and exposing it to salt water and bouncing. It doesn't have any form of non-slip material on the bottom though, so we added our own to prevent it from sliding around on the boat.
The longest trip I took it on was five days (in Florida) and while most of the ice was water at the end of the trip, there was still a little ice and the water was cold enough to keep beer in!
