Ordered this cooler because the handle on my husband's cooler broke after using for 12 years. This one has been great so far, we have had it about 1 month. It seems to keep everything cooler and is large enough for him to put plenty of bottled water. Love the tray that holds dry foods to prevent them getting wet. Very satisfied with this purchase so far.
We purchased the 30 qt cooler after reading reviews I was a little disappointed it did not hold ice for days like some said we didn't even get a day but it is very well made and we will continue to use maybe I'm doing something wrong.
The 30 Qt box is perfectly sized for my use. I have an actual cooler for drinks and ice, I bought this for food like bread, nuts, apples, jerky, chips, etc that I don't need kept icy but I also don't want it to get hot or smashed. I put several frozen water bottles in the bottom and the food on top. It worked beautifully for a long weekend (refreshed each day) in a hot dusty environment strapped on my Jeep. It is ideal in every way except two things: the box comes with a strap with guides to hold the strap in place. It would seem that the strap guides could be reinforced to serve as tiedowns. As it was, I left the strap at home and used bungie cords to secure it to my Jeep. The reason I almost sent it back is that the hinges are plastic and appear weak. It worked fine and we will see how it lasts, but I was severely disappointed that the hinges are not as beefy as the stainless latches. Why not just put some metal hinges like the metal latches? An ideal product with a weak component. I may put on a metal "piano hinge" to reinforce it. I came very close to sending it back. I decided instead to use it and see how long it lasts.
I really love this cooler. Just took out on a 4 day jeep trip. Used the shoulder strap slots to tie cooler down to rear rack, now have easy access to beverages. And cooler was not full of dust thanks to the gasket. Great cooler. Will also use it on the raft this summer. Ice storage not bad, I froze 5 water bottles and put then on the bottom about 24 of my favorite canned beverages and a bag and a half of ice. Still had ice cubes on the third day after bouncing around the desert for 3 days on the jeep in about 85 degrees heat. Not bad. 4th day no cubes left but water bottles still had some ice. But also added some air cold beers at the end of second day. Friends yeti still had ice at the end of the 4th day it was 35qt but I played much less obviously. Overall I would great value for awesome cooler. Is it a yeti, no but I can buy 4 for same price.
