Over a year of use and going strong. A must have!

by Kevin, from United States, KY Written on February 4, 2015
I wanted to use this product for over a year before writing a proper review. I read for months and then looked at other products in person and the Pelican was the only choice. It was between the Pelican and the Yeti. The Pelicans solid handles and latches set it apart from the Yeti's rubber latches that won't stand up to years of sunlight and regular use. So after researching prices locally & online, I found the best deal on opticsplanet.com & it was delivered to my front door! Opticsplanet.com is now on my list of sites to check before ordering online, plus they have 10%, 20% off deals plus free shipping regularly.
This is my experience over the past year:
I also purchased two Pelican baskets to keep fruit, meat, veggies, etc above the ice and water, they quickly pay for themselves in saved products and lift out to get to other items instead of digging around in the ice. It really keeps ice for 7 - 10 days in the summer heat if the cooler if full (read the instructions for proper use, I had no clue to keep a cooler full, air is the enemy). After several trips to the lake I left the remaining ice in the cooler and placed it in the garage to see how long the ice would last and it was 15 days during the summer (approx 85 degree & no direct sunlight). The thick insulation and freezer grade gasket allows this.
The Pelican is rock solid period! The hinges, latches, handles, non-slip feet, construction and steel lock hasp make this thing a tank. Keep in mind that being a tank...

Great Cooler

by HW, from United States, TX Written on August 30, 2014
After I got this cooler I decided to see what it would do. Friday noon I had placed some ambient temperature (98 Degrees F) drinks i the cooler. About 8 16 oz bottles of water and a dozen 12 ox Gatorades. Put in 10 lbs of ice and realized that it needed another 10 lbs the temperature reached 101 that day Loaded it into the car at 9 AM Saturday and added 6 more 16 oz bottles of water out of the refrigerator. At 1PM added another 10 LBS of ice. The cooler stayed in the car in the sun for the duration and was opened multiple times over the next few days. Monday at 5 PM there was still some ice left. Tuesday 5 PM there was no ice left and the water was 50 degrees, Wednesday at 5 PM the water was 70 degrees. The outdoor temperature was 100 or more every day and the cooler never left the car. In an Igloo cooler of the same capacity I have never made it 12 hours in the summer with ice remaining even when traveling with the AC on.

The cooler appears to be built with quality in mind. The drain does not leak and the latches work smoothly....

Big strong cooler

by Mike W, from United States, CA Written on August 14, 2014
When I got the cooler the box was huge! well packed and the cooler has 2 inch walls.
Got it just in time for a 2 night camping trip. Held ice no problem and we must have opened it at least 20 times a day if not a little more. Since it uses such think walls, the inside is smaller than you think. You can still pack enough stuff for a few days. The latches with red buttons are easy to use but seem maybe too easy. handles are sturdy and the tilted drain inside worked fine.

Since I used it only once but had a good experience I would suggest Pelican coolers because they are a bit lower cost than yeti brand....
