Two packs of block ice lasted for 7 days until it was completely gone. Drained the cooler once per day. Mix of being in the car and outside in temps from 50-70. Fantastic cooler. Great alternative to the Yeti if you want a good camping cooler.

Pro tip: Buy two blocks of ice, put them in a cooler. Next line the inside of the cooler with a black garbage bag. Now, line it with a second one. The ice should be sitting below the garbage bags (outside of them). Place your food inside the garbage bags. That will keep your food from getting wet. You will need to change the garbage bags after 3 days or so due to condensation from the food packaging and what not. But the melting ice will not get the food wet.

I took this on a 2 day camping trip and I still had solid ice in it on the drive back. I have to agree with some reviews that the handles are latch feel a lot more flimsy than my parents old mint-coloured coleman icechest and I miss the beer openers on the handles too! Fix this and I'd give it 5-star!

Tip: put water in a 9x13 cake pan and freeze it. I used about 4 of those as ice blocks and they fit perfectly in the bottom and along the sides.

I bought this to replace the same model that I owned for 35 years. There were some small changes (hinges are now stainless steel, not plastic), but overall quality remains outstanding - well done, Coleman! Don't understand the latch issues in some other reviews - it is a great design that can be operated with one hand.

This is a 3 day cooler that is of a size that can be filled with food and ice and still be lifted by an old geezer.

This is a GREAT cooler, no doubt. I bought the classic green cooler, and it holds ice (in my estimation) MUCH longer than any Igloo or plastic Coleman I have ever owned. Now, my latch and lid work perfectly, BUT I definitely sympathize with other reviewers. I actually went to a Coleman outlet and checked several of these out before purchasing. I would have just bought at Coleman Outlet, but they did not stock the classic green. Anyway, probably 3 or 4 of the ones I messed around with that were on display had broken lid latches. Sad. So, that's the only reason for 4 stars rather than 5

So far so good took it with me for my 4th of July overnight trip and it worked great I put in about 10-15lbs of ice and left it overnight and here in Texas it was 100+ degrees during the day and 80+ overnight and it had about 40% of the ice left coming home. I added the Coleman light and the magcap bottle opener and it got a ton of compliments and did the job! Oh and I’m regards to people’s comments on the quality of the latch this unit seems solid the latch is plastic but seems to be working as designed. We will see how it holds up.

Got one of these just in time for some car camping with our new infant. This is the first such cooler I've had of this caliber and it worked great. We were out camping in hot weather over two nights and even after we got home there was still some ice left in the cooler.

I know there are many complaints about the plastic latch. I had no problems with it, but then I also wasn't trying to yank the thing open. Is it going to keep a bear out? Probably not, but as long as you don't abuse it, I'm pretty confident it will keep your cooler closed.

I also had no problems with the drain, although I would feel a little more comfortable about it if it was a screw-off cap. Only time will tell how well that holds up.

I've always liked the style of these coolers and finally decided to purchase one. I really liked the look of a similar cooler sold by Crate and Barrel but did not like the price. C&B sells this for $160; it is the same cooler (different color) plus it includes a light and bottle opener. I purchased this cooler from amazon for $70, a Starr bottle opener for $10 White Plain STARR "X" Wall Mounted Bottle Opener, and a cooler light for $13 Coleman cold Glow Cooler Light. I was able to "build" my own version of the one i saw at C&B for over $60 less.
I primarily use it for car camping trips. It has decent capacity to hold beverages and food for an overnight trip. I typically do not use it for more than one night. Ice lasts overnight and contents of the cooler stay closed. I like the way the lid latches, it holds firmly and I do not worry about it spilling open in a car, or having small critters get into it at night while camping.

Held ice for nearly 2 days at a time while strapped to a trailer exposed to the sun and heat on a cross country summer trip. This is made very solid, for the money you would be hard pressed to find a better value.

Bought this for my son and he is delighted because he won't have to worry about the latch breaking off in a plastic based cooler.. Only negative aspect is that the drain exit is made out of plastic and that could shorten the useful life of the cooler.

I used this cooler the first weekend I went out. After 4 days the original ice I put in it was still there when I came home. Yes, a lot of it was melted, but a lot of ice still remained, and all the rest of my food and drinks were still cold. I love it.
