I was shocked when I pulled up to my house last night and saw a giant box next to my stoop. I own a smaller coleman cooler that's never big enough, so I went for the 150qt when buying my first "extreme" cooler...it is BIG.
The 150qt is definately a two person job when it needs to be moved, and be aware, unless you have a full-size pick up or large SUV (not one of those little fake SUVs), you will not be able to bring this cooler around with you. Between the 150qt size, and the 2+ inches of insulation on top, bottom, and sides, this thing is a monster.
A real man's proffessional grade cooler - Can't wait to put it to the test!
I love this cooler! I searched for months before deciding on this one. This cooler is top quality made in USA and a great price. I can finally pack one cooler with food and drinks for a family of 7 for a week long trip. Doesn't get any better than that.
I have never seen a cooler this heavy duty. Lifting by yourself when empty is possible. When full, not so much. This thing is build like a tank. I did have some quality control issues with the lid. I actually ordered two of these. One fit flush the other didn't. Pelican didn't really work with me that much. They offered to send me new latches and hardware, but the problem was actually with the construction of the lid. Ended up exchanging it through amazon.
I used this over the Thanksgiving holiday. Had temps ranging from 30-70 degrees during that time and I still have the same ice in there almost a month later. It is mostly water( very cold water) but there is still quite a bit of ice.
Definitely a 5 star cooler. Quality build and extremely solid. Last cooler you'll ever need to buy. Take note of the dimensions and understand what you are getting. I'm very impressed with this purchase and so is everyone else that sees it!
If you need to keep a side of beef or a couple of butchered deer on ice, this is the cooler for it! It is a bear to haul around by one person even if it is empty! Once you get it loaded you better have a fork lift or a couple of very big friends to help you move it! Either way, it will keep whatever you put into it cold or frozen for a long time!
