This was the lowest price I could find for this cooler. Most other sites were selling it for at least $55. Plus I got free shipping. I ordered the than color b/c I work outdoors and need something I can use daily that wont show dirt and wear and tear so much. Its a little heavier than my old Igloo but it sure does keep stuff a lot colder even w/o an ice pack. I like that it has a strap so I can carry it even if my hands are full. Well-made, would recommend to anyone. Super fast shipping from these guys, too.
I've had this little cooler about a month and have used it three times. Pros: very good seal, I haven't turned it over while full of melted ice yet, but I doubt much or any would leak if I did. It seals pretty well. I don't know how long it actually keeps ice compared to other coolers I have but plan to compare sometime (check youtube for comparison, if I ever do, I'll post it). It looks like a very expensive yeti. People always ask me how I like it, assuming it cost much more. Cons: the stainless latches on front seem under sized and usually one will get locked into the lid when latching it up. Also don't like the plastic hinges on the rear. What's the point of using stainless on the front and plastic on the rear. A chain is only as strong as the weakest link right? Also, The handle may last for years, but it seems a little under built considering the weight it needs to carry when the cooler is loaded. The strap is a good idea, but if you use is you can't access inside very easily. I am trying to find small cam or ratcheting tie downs for the side.
Folks said it wouldn't keep ice for a day, but I found mine to keep for 2 days in 90* weather on my bass boat, replenished it though daily but it works as desired. It's light, good capacity, rugged, and ergonomically the right proportion size. I would recommend as a day cooler for a boat. Or for other outings as well.
I own two ENGEL 65's and love them, GREAT product. I expected as much from the ENGEL 19 but am somewhat dissappointed. Hinges are not strong enough. Lid becomes easily misaligned.
