Wish I could give it 10 stars!Aug 03, 2012
Let me start this review with a disclaimer, as much as I love this cooler it will not replace an ice chest that costs 10 times as much. I would hope, and expect, that a very expensive cooler be built better and insulate better. That being said, this is the best cooler for under $100 no questions asked. This is the best cooler the average person could ask for. Check out the pros and cons below and don't listen to the haters who want a 300 dollar ice chest for 30 bucks.
Cheap ($25)- you have to buy local (shipping an item like this is expensive if shipped separately)
Extremely well made - I have had this cooler for about 6 years now and am finally having to buy a new one after years of misuse and abuse (see cons for details).
Perfect size - this thing will hold 90 cans and it doesnt feel that big at all! It is the perfect use of space, with it being square it fits the most amount in the space it takes up. It fits easily in anybodys car (others who had trouble wth this need to trade in their miata because it fits in my wifes honda fit trunk with the seats up!)
Travels well across all terrains - I have no idea how anybody has complaints here, I have dragged this thing over rocks/sand/grass/dirt full to the brim with no problems. To the person who broke the handle over rough terrain, you aren't suppose to tow this behind a pickup!
Light weight - this thing is very light when there is nothing in it, so on your way back to the car after a day of you and your friends cleaning it out, it is a very easy rider.
The lid - 4 cup holders and a place to sit
Spare parts - in the event that you do break a part (like when one drunk buddy tore the drain plug off or when another drunk buddy body slammed the lid and broke it) igloo sells parts that are easy to replace and dirt cheap (11 bucks for both after shipping) that is if they dont replace them for free (which they did for me!)
Lid denting - if a big guy sits down on the lid hard the lid will dent. Not too surprising but sort of annoying
Moisture absorption - you can't leave this cooler outside in the rain and snow for months at a time. This should be common sense, I didnt put it away and it apparently absorbed water through the plastic during the winter. First year it only happened to the lid so I replaced the lid, then I did it again a couple years later and it happened to the body so its time to get a new one. I will not be looking at any other model.
If you are a weekend warrior looking for a cooler that is easy to transport and fits everything four people need at a tailgate then this is the cooler for you. Don't even think about another one, in 10 years when you throw out the cooler after one of your old college buddies decided it would be fun to see if he could ride it down the driveway you will thank me as you shed a tear while putting it in the dumpster.

Hardly an ice chestSep 27, 2010
By J. Gebhart
My brother owns this 60qt model, and I own the 48qt version. We've taken both camping, and both models are barely insulated. Even if you only keep them open for a few minutes a day, they require a bag of ice a day. There will be no ice, only cold water, by the second day. In warm climates there is condensation on all sides, showing that the insulation isn't able to keep the heat out and the cold inside. If you leave it in one place for at least an hour, move it, and step on the ground in that place with bare feet, the ground will be very cold. I have never owned such a poorly insulated cooler before (besides those cheap thin soft side ones.)

PERFECT for family gatherings!! Holds almost 4 cases of soda plus ice. Drain is recessed, not easily seen.May 14, 2013
By Jeri Zerr
"formerly a Road Warrior of the Nth Degree"
We absolutely love our new Ice Cube rolling cooler!! Bought at a local box store (those blue ones) for $25-$30 it is by far the best deal around. Furthermore, the handle is on the side of the wheels so when rolling around the weight rests ON the wheels (this is very important since we both have disabilities and are not able to lift heavy items.)
* GREAT VALUE
* Handle is located on side of wheels - weight rests on wheels, easier to use for someone with disabilities
* Recessed drain is less noticeable, less likely to become damaged
* Great quality construction
* large capacity - holds 90 cans with a reasonable amount of ice, that's almost 4 cases!
* Width is narrower than the other style, hence easier to roll through doorways
* Will readily fit into most vehicles
So far we have not found any issues - maybe the lack of a latch.. yet it closes very tightly so for us that hasn't been an issue and it is a plus as it's easier to open for someone with reduced hand function (at least when there is weight inside holding it down!)
Highly recommend, I will be looking to buy another if anything happens to ours.

Pros and ConsJun 07, 2012
Bought this cooler because I was hosting a small company event/road trip over the course of about 2 1/2 days and was suckered in by the price and size. Did not get it at Amazon as it was on sale at Walmart for 26 bucks when I went to check out the product first hand before ordering. Originally, I was looking at the Coleman Extreme 50 qt and after going back and forth between the 2 models decided to go with this one.
Pros - Easy release telescoping handle, great storage capacity, extremely sturdy wheels, holds cold relatively well (about 2 days with light usage), great for road trips, back yard BBQ's, for storing many drinks, field trips, boating, parks, picnics, parties, etc...
Cons - Flimsy-ish handle, not good for pulling across non smooth surfaces i.e. sand, tall grass, odd tall shape (21 inches tall) makes putting it in some trunks impossible, (I have a hatchback and SUV so not an issue), not really built for rough outdoors/camping like situations), would not pay over 30 bucks for this one.

GREAT COOLER BUT IT HAS 2 FLAUS.Apr 03, 2014
we bought this cooler for the boat n the beach here in miami,we have had it for about 3yrs..we use it weekly and it has held up well..the weak side of this cooler is the whole grab n pull handle,its made of steel n does rust n far apart if u use it near salt water.the axle that holds the wheel is steel as well and does rust to hell..if they would make this cooler with an aluminum or stainless steel handle n axle it would be an awesome cooler..
