My new fav!

Amazing cooler. Took with me on my first camping/shooting trip. Tuesday I tossed a bag of ice, 20lbs in the cooler, nothing else. Opened on Friday morning to find the ice was still 2/3 frozen with some water. Tossed in my food items and another bag of ice, 20lbs. Headed into the hills Friday night. When I was home Sunday evening, I had well over a 20lb bag of ice with some still in the original bag. All food and drinks were cold. This thing works great!

Based on all reviews and videos out there it seems like all rotomolded coolers are far superior to your ''standard'' cooler as far as ice retention and food safety. That was especially important to us since we like to do a lot of camping. Initially I was going to buy a different brand cooler but since I decided to buy right before a labor day camping trip, I could not get it in time so I switched my choice to the Pelican cool that I could get in time. I'm glad I did. Both coolers seemed to have the same ice retention so I didn't think it was a big deal. What I do love about this cooler is the latches. They are much easier to use than the rubber tie down style that most other coolers tend to use. I also love the fixed handles. It's much easier to carry than a cooler that hangs from strap type handles or one that has swinging handles. The downside to that is it makes the overall size of the cooler much larger. That can be a problem when loading your truck with square bins as it leaves dead space under the handles. If you're good a packing you can always stuff some small stuff in between. As far as performance, we left Friday morning with the cooler full or water, beer and food with three 4 pound blocks of ice. (all contents were cold when the cooler was packed). We consumed almost everything in the cooler during our trip and returned home late Monday night with 3 small chunks of ice left. We never had to add ice like use usually do with our standard cooler and everything inside stayed cold, even the items at the very top of the cooler. I was always concerned that the items on top were not staying cold in our old cooler since most do not an insulated lid. No concerns with the Pelican.

Great Cooler with some Cautions

This is our Second Pelican Cooler and We are Sold. . Much better Ice retention in over 100 heat than a Yeti. Its Built very very well. . BUT. . we took a long trip with two pelicans and a camp box on a curt trailer hitch cargo rack. . . after a 700 mile day over the Rockies we found that the cooler got melted from the exhaust 18 inches away from the cooler. . kind of blew my mind. it melted through to the core. it maintained ice but its a matter of time before it is through the insulation. Buy the cooler if you plan on it taking up a crap load of space in your car, they are not small, or light. I would endorse it with cautions

Expensive but you get what you pay for in quality and cooling duration.

If you are looking for a well built and heavily insulated medium to large cooler this is it. In addition, I like the handles, latches and bottle opener. The only small negative I found is that if you use it as a stool, like I do to load and unload a dirt bike from truck bed, you need to avoid stepping close to the edge as the built in 4 rubber feet under the cooler are not close enough to the edge to ensure stability.

Everything is AWESOME

AWESOME cooler. will keep ice for a weekend camping trip, no issues, also got a 1/3 size metal pan and lid for my meat, fits in the cooler perfectly. I combo ice pks and normal ice and food stays nice and cold. got these ice pks at a local store: Freez Pak Large Reusable Ice Pack they fit nicely in the bottom of the cooler. I watched a lot of ice challenge videos on Youtube and determined that Pelican was one of the best so I purchased it with my CITI card. when the cooler when on sale a few weeks later during labor day for $247 I requested a ''price rewind'' and got the $100+ difference in price credited to my CC account so that was a nice little bonus my CC offers. Wife wanted this color so I went with it. :-)the metal pans I'm talking about:Winco 1/3 Size Pan 6'' (NSF) and lid: Winco SPSCT 1/3 Size Solid Coverside note - those ice pks work but you get what you pay for. $5+ each vs the $25+ ones that are better quality. . they stay cool but some of them have a bulge on the front after you freeze them.

LOVE THIS THING! Had it in the sun on the boat for 5 days in 100+ Arizona heat and my ice lasted the whole time! Even had to thaw out some meat to BBQ on day 3! Worth every penny!
