Reasonably priced and very durable.

Had to work on the locking mechanism before the lid would close properly.

I have other larger Igloo Maxcold coolers, which have thicker walls of insulation, and actually do keep things colder longer than a regular thin-walled cooler. Maxcold is supposed to be their "premium" sub-brand. This product, however, is nothing more than a conventional Igloo Playmate cooler dressed up with the blue-silver color and a flimsy, thin piece of styrofoam under the lid. I was very disappointed.

The walls of the cooler are no thicker than a cheap Playmate cooler, and as you would expect, it does NOT keep things colder longer. Any ice placed in this cooler will be melted within 12-18 hours at room temperature, not 3-5 days, as is typical with a Maxcold cooler. The only difference is a useless piece of thin styrofoam under the lid, which will surely break up and fall out soon. As any teenage science student can tell you, cold air falls, so insulation ABOVE the cold mass is nearly useless. Why did Igloo do this instead of make the walls and floor of the cooler thicker (as they do with other Maxcold coolers)? The answer is that some marketing guy at Igloo (who flunked science and had never used a cooler) thought it would be clever to slap the Maxcold label on a cheap Playmate cooler to fool consumers into paying more, without spending anything to add thicker walls.

Message to Igloo marketing geniuses: This will backfire on you. The fastest way to kill a higher-end brand is to put the label on a low-quality, non-performing product, and disappoint your target consumer. I will never buy an Igloo product again.

I won't bore you with reviews that seem to go on for hours like some people do but instead I'll come straight to the point, this product does not work, period. But don't take my word for it, just conduct this simple experiment, fill it full of ice and let it sit overnight at room temperature and see if you don't have a cooler full of water the next morning. The conditions of my test are well within the parameters of the original test claims, those claims being that this cooler could keep ice solid for five days at ninety degrees. My question is how did the Igloo corporation come about such results when the ice in my cooler didn't even last overnight at roughly seventy five degrees? Maybe it's because they're a bunch of damn liars. Anyway, hang on to your receipt you're going to need it.

When I was young all the cool kids at day camp had the junior version of this. Their stuff would stay cold and their sandwiches wouldn't get squooshed. I had a soft-sided thermal bag. Not as good.

Last week I went to Target and picked this up in store for less than the price on Amazon. It's been great. I pack my lunch and some extra drinks in it every day and it stays cold. I bought an igloo freezer pack to put in it and it never thaws out before I get home. I've also taken it on some day trips in the car and the pool and it's a lot of fun being able to pull out cold drinks and fruit whenever and not having to wait or pay three times the price for them somewhere else.

I agree with the negative reviewers that maybe this isn't the best thing if you're going on multi-day expeditions, and the styrofoam inside the lid should probably be sealed up to look nicer and be easier to clean. However for the price, I can't complain too much, and the convenience of the Playmate-style lid cannot be overstated.

I'm enjoying a cold Snapple iced tea as I write this.

Love to take this thing sailing with a six pack and a couple of sandwiches. Keeps stuff cold forever, even in direct sun.

I bought this cooler, used it once, and the latch mechanism is already broken.

As other reviewers say, doesn't do much to keep stuff cooler than other playmate coolers, but I was in a hurry and this is what was at the store in the size I was looking for.

I will have to take it apart and try to fix it but kind of annoying to have it break so easily.

Other MaxCold coolers are better. Don't buy this junk.
