I was looking for the largest cooler possible that would fit in the trunk of my mid-sized car (Malibu). I measured the trunk opening and determined that it couldn't be much more than 14" deep by 14" high if it were to get it and slide all the way forward under the speakers. I was looking for a cooler to bring meat home from the store, or carry food to a church gathering or shut-ins. I was not looking for something to keep food cold for many days while camping (if that were the case, I'd look at Igloo's MaxCold line or similar from other manufacturers.)

In short, this is the one I was looking for. Fits perfectly in the trunk.

In the store, this was sitting next to the Sportsman 52-quart model. They were identical except for the color and the fact that the Sportsman had a drain while the Family does not. I figure since this is not a rolling unit (i.e., I need to make sure I can lift it) and I did not intend to use it for several days at a time (and possibly wanting to drain melt water without unloading the food), this was fine with me. Especially since the Sportsman at this store cost about 2/3 more.

I don't like that the hinges are just flexing pieces of plastic. These will eventually break through with use. But all of the cooler I saw were like this, and at the low price I got it for, it's acceptable. There is no latch, but the lid fits tightly, and requires some force to open.

If you drive the ubiquitous mid-sized car and need the largest cooler that will fit in the trunk, give this one a look.

I had ordered many of these coolers from Target online for 1/3 of the price and they also came with a drain plug. I just assumed these that were ordered via Amazon would have a drain. Plug. I was wrong.

Item delivered quicker that I expected. The reason for my rating is that the cooler keeps ice for one to one and a half days. My previous brand of cooler kept items cold for days! There was not need for me to remove items left after an outing and place them in the fridge. This cooler is great if you need items cool for a single outing. (I tend to overpack and I'm used to leaving the items in the cooler for two to three days).

This cooler is used to make patio coolers wrapped in wood. It is perfect for me as I can add a bottom center drain. It does a good job of holding ice for long periods which is what people buy a cooler for.

Used this to replace the cooler /step on my Freedom 21 sailboat. Works fine as a cooler but needs a piece of teak on the lid to use it as a step.
