Product Description

Go back in time with cold food and drinks today when you take a Coleman 54 Quart Steel Belted Cooler along with you. It looks just like the one you remember. The painted steel cooler is large enough to hold 85 cans, and the stainless steel handles with rubber grips make it simple to carry. The cooler is also durable. A solid steel latch is designed to seal securely. Rust-resistant hinges and screws protect against breaking, and a rustproof, leak-resistant channel drains without having to tilt the cooler. The base, lid and liner are also easy to clean.

About Coleman

W.C. Coleman was a young salesman taking a stroll after a hard day’s work selling typewriters when he spotted a new type of lamplight in a drugstore window in Brockton, Alabama. This new light burned with a strong, steady white flame and was fueled by gasoline. The standard lamp of the era burned kerosene and produced a smoky, flickering, yellowish light. W.C. was stricken with very poor eyesight, and was very interested in this new, steady white light that enabled him to read even the smallest print in books and on medicine bottles. Coleman saw potential in the new light, and through his vision a new company was born that would put America’s farms and ranches in a new light, and would eventually make his name synonymous with outdoor fun.

if you asked me last year, i would have given this 5 stars, but since we've been using it on camping trips it has failed miserably.

i used to go camping as a child with my father with the old, bombproof coleman cooler. it was extremely well made & lasted for years. it is someplace in my brother's garage.

the old lid was held down by a metal hook that cinched the lid tight & sealed it well. the "new, improved latch" is a thin cylinder that slides into a spring tentioned plastic groove in the lid. problem is the lid pops open with a tug and even worse if it gets knocked over when full.

the old design has a screw drain plug attached by a chain. the new design has a plastic cork-like stopper that can (and will) get popped open when placed into an suv full of gear (drenching the back of your car during the long trip). what was wrong with the screw drain plug? it stayed in place & never opened... even through the roughest of conditions.

they also removed the built-in bottle opener that used to be in the handle mounts.

i'm now looking on ebay for the old coleman cooler or looking to find metal latches to replace the stupid closure they have on it. i'm also looking at epoxying a guard over the drain plug so that it won't get unexpectedly dislodged.

it looks great, but they really ruined the design with all these "improvement".

After looking forward to receiving a quality cooler, I was very disappointed with the Coleman Steel Belted Chest Cooler (54-Quart). The latch did not function properly in that it was not possible to secure a tight seal. Nevertheless I took the cooler on an outing for a week in which it was kept inside a cabin where the outdoor Tempaerture did not go above 90 degrees and the evening temperature dropped into the high 60's. Everyday the cooler needed a new bag of ice because all the ice would melt in less than a 24-hour period. Coleman has quality control problems as some of the reviews rate this cooler well and others low. If given the option, I would rate this Coleman cooler with a 1/2 star and that is only because of its fine looking appearance.

I had hoped to be buying the same cooler my family had when I was growing up -- nearly indestructible steel. This coleman is made to look like that cooler, but it is just a plastic ice chest with a thin sheet metal skin on the sides and top. I was disappointed, but it is still better than a standard plastic cooler. If you get it on sale (I paid $50) it's worth the money.

Many people have probably written reviews after having this great looking cooler for about a week and maybe one good tailgate. Yes you get comments on the look, but as I have read previously this thing is terrible. It does not stay latched, so why it has a metal latch on the front is beyond me. The drain plug does pop open fairly easily and at unwanted times. Why didn't they make this with the screw on type plug? Who knows! I've had this for about 2.5 years. I don't use it heavily by any means, probably less than 10 times a year, but the hinges on the lid have started to separate after about 5-10 uses. Almost like the lid is too heavy for the hinges and they are now bending. I am not impressed and I would not suggest buying this cooler. Plus, the price has gone up from $100 to $150 in a couple years.....that is ridiculous. If you really need a metal cooler buy an old coleman on ebay, they blow this junk out of the water.

Also, ice doesn't last more than about 8 hours in this. If you need to keep stuff cold for days then buy and Igloo Marine!

This product works like a charm and looks great. It will indeed keep ice for three days, and it's good company on any road trip. However, lugging the thing back and forth between car and hotel is a chore that could have been solved with a pair of small luggage casters. Also, the rubberized draing plugs are merely a pressure-fit; I fear that these may leak one day and then it's bam, ice water all over the back seat.

I just purchased the 54 quart stainless steel belted chest cooler. The lid latch does not hold the lid down tight and there is no tray in the cooler like the old ones. I am quite disappointed with the product.

I bought this cooler becuase it was advertised to keep ice longer than most coolers. It does not. I also thought it would be a rugged cooler that would provide years of service, but after only four years the cooler is falling apart.
The hinges are tearing off the back and the lock on the front does not work well. I use the cooler about 10 times per year on weekend trips. I know if the cooler was used more often it would be completely broken by now because I have used it so little.

The cooler is also much heavier than other coolers, if it kept ice longer I would not mind that.

Save your money and just buy a regular cooler unless you just want the retro look.
