Coleman 54-Quart Steel-Belted Cooler - Red
Coleman 54-QT Steel cooler
When I was kid my parents had one of these coolers that worked well for years and I was so pleased to see it brought back. I purchased mine two years ago, and I tell you what a difference vs. other coolers. I've been on 87 camping trips, so I know what a good cooler can do and the 54 QT Coleman Steel Cooler is a good one. I would change my ice in a traditional plastic cooler every day in hot weather, while the Coleman Steel Cooler could hold out for three days or more without a change in ice. Need I say more!

old ice chest
I been camping for ever and I'm 62 year old I had the old coleman ice chest and it work for me .I'm glad to see they brought it back .I haven't got one yet but if it better it worth the moeny.I was in yosemite about 35 year ago and a bear stood on top of the ice chest put his claws next to the latch and pull it open ate ever thing but the can cola. I bent the top back and used it year after.Ever time I look at it brought back memory.And about the ice if they use block ice it will last a lot longer they can put other ice on top. good move coleman. mondo

strong as ever
I have used this cooler for over 3 years or when ever it was re-introduced. Its been camping in Colorado, up Pike's Peak, to the drag races in Dallas, and the family trips to Ohio, all in the back of my pick up. It looks just as new now as it did then. Although its never been tipped over, the locking lid did keep out the racoons at a state park in texas. I too thought that the ice did not last as long as stated. About 2 days at best in the hotter weather. I used crushed or cubed ice instead of dry ice as I like lots of ice for drinks. Still like it,still use it, would recommend to any one that asked

yeah, it's not gonna keep ice solid for a week, but it will keep it just as long as any other cooler out there. nice and sturdy too.
