Good capacity. Keeps ice for days like they say. I recommend this cooler.

definately worth the money
I go camping regularly and I have saved enough money by not purchasing ice from the park store to pay for this cooler several times over. You must start with block ice though or it won't last the full 5 days. Keep the most perishable stuff on the bottom too. I had a bigger cooler than this one but it was almost impossible to lift when full so this is a great size

What's keeping your beverages cold?
I've had this Coleman for 3 years now and it's the 'GO-TO' cooler when going on longer trips. Not once has the ice lasted less than 4 days with continuous opening. Even put dry ice in it once to use as an ice chest. You won't be disappointed with this purchase.

Beyond the name
Instead of cubes I freeze bottled water for long trips...keeps well and provides drinking water when thawed. With 18 frozen bottles of water this cooler kept all food and drinks cold for a whole 5 day camping trip. Even by day 5, I had bottles still frozen solid! Had to pull some out the night before to have drinking water for the next morning. That being said, I agree with other reviewers who said that it's heavy when full and I'll be buying the one with the wheels next time. Highly recommend these coolers regardless of size.

Good cooler,holds lots,gets heavy so I think I am getting the one with wheels next time. Probably would keep ice a long time but for me it is for my beverages so I am in and out of it all day long and still will keep ice for a couple of days.Mine was left out in a couple rain storms and didnt leak any water into it seems to be sealed up pretty good.

Wish it had wheels
Excellent cooler!!! Only downfall, it gets quite heavy when loaded. Wish it had wheels or something that made it more easily manouverable. Would be nice to save stress on my back.

If you read the directions and follow them properly, this thing will last well beyond 5 days.
I am not sure what the difference is between this and the Marine version except cost and colour. If you want to save a couple of bucks, buy this over the Marine coolers.

not bad but.......
I keep this cooler on my boat in the back seating area which is under a sun shield.. but when it rains, for some reason the cooler gets water in it, not condensate but rain water.. but as an occational cooler for guests, its ok, but just have to clean it out every time I want to put ice in it as the rainwater leaves an orange ting... not very happy but at least its a place to put the beer.
maybe I got a lemon

Another great product from Coleman. I purchased this cooler this summer and was impressed by it's storage capacity and the well insulated liner that holds the cold far better than any of the other coolers I have.
I use this one for meat and other perishables, while keeping another cooler for beverages since that one gets opened and closed all day with 4 people in and out of it.

Keeps the beer cold!! If you drain out the water in the morning, It will keep ice for a long time. Keeps the drinks and food cold for the whole weekend. Not 5 days, but a least a long weekend.
