I've had this for 3 weeks now and can honestly say, this cooler is the best I have ever owned. Before this purchase, I was going to go with another High-End brand that everyone I am sure thinks about getting first. cough Yeti cough Then I watched a video online where this dude does a 5 day challenge on 10 different premium coolers. Pelican came in number one. Sooooo. that's what I went with, and I am not sorry I did. The cooler came in claiming a 10 day ice longevity. I scoffed because that sounds ridiculous. Well, 10 frick'n days later, I still have ice. Probably like (3) 1gallon freezer bags worth. That's amazing. The water is still cold as a polar bear's nutsa. well, let's just say the water is really cold. I pondered giving it 4 Stars only due to weight. This cooler is really heavy and had to hit the gym double time to get the strength to do it. But did I tell you, I still have ice after 10 days!!!? There is this little cart online that this cooler fits in perfectly that I bought to give my upper body a rest when lugging it around. It's the cooler cart ice chest wagon by plus. It's pretty dope too. Anyways, a really good cooler, and a really good workout. Update: 12 days later, here is a picture of the amount of ice left after I drained the water.
