Coleman rocks! We got the 62-qt. wheeled version of this last year and only have to purchase additional ice for trips over 3 days. Remember to always precool any ice chest w/ ice/freezer packs/frozen food before adding the rest of the food. This makes a huge difference. After our last 2.5 day trip the ice packs were still frozen solid.

Just bought an Igloo cooler of the same size not long ago. The Coleman and the Igloo were side-by-side in the store, and it was amazing how flimsy and cheap the handles on the Coleman were compared to the Igloo. I'm sure these work fine for people, but I just couldn't bring myself to spend money on something that had plastic handles that could easily twist with little effort from a couple of fingers.

I use one of these xtreme coolers for transporting bbq. I preheat the cooler by filling it with hot water in the bathtub, then empty and towel dry before loading it up with foil wrapped bbq. nothing like being able to serve still piping hot food four to six hours later without having to add any additional heat source.

Oh, and it keeps stuff cool just fine as well.

I personally have the "steel belted" cooler that generally runs around $100. We received it as a gift and love it and use it almost weekly for our trips to the grocery store. I think it's a bit more durable than the all plastic style but maybe not.

One thing that is a plus for many is that Coleman makes some of their coolers here in the United States! Mine is and apparently, so is this one according to the Coleman page: http://www.coleman.com/product/52-quart-xtremereg-5-cooler/6050A748#.UcSVhdjWmbE
