Khaki and green color looks good
Rubber locking handles are nice
Huge drain cap (2 big flaws though, see below)
Cutting board (good idea, poorly executed, see below)
One of the best volume per dollar super coolers on the market (i.e.- good bang for your buck!)
Comes with dry rack
Itâ€™s not a YETI, so I didnâ€™t have to spend $750 to get a 130+ quart cooler!
The drain cap is 2 inches off the bottom of the cooler. With a cooler this size thatâ€™s enough to leave 3+ gallons of water behind (over 25 additional pounds). Itâ€™s also made from brittle plastic and the retaining tab is just a fold of plastic. I give it 3 months. The black plastic has already turned white from fatigue where it was bent over from the factory.
Cutting board is okay, but the mounts that hold it in place on the inside of the lid seem to be an after thought. Cheap plastic and poorly placed and donâ€™t actually click the board in to retain it well.
The handle mounts are riveted into the side of the cooler (like a cheap China Coleman cooler) instead of molded in. They just look out of place like they for got to design them.
The molding looks cheap. Thereâ€™s a ton of molding seams all over the cooler. Just not something youâ€™d expect from a cooler in the $400-$600 price range.
This thing is basically an old school Coleman cooler on steroids. And not the good kind of steroids that make you jacked and super fast. More like the kind that make you look okay for a week and then make you fat and slow right after that. So what do I mean?... This is NOT a rotomold cooler! Itâ€™s NOTHING like the rest of the market of super coolers out there (YETI, Grizzly, Engel, Canyon, Orion, ORCO, RTIC, etc.). To be fair, Colman never actually says theyâ€™re rotomolded. They very carefully say that they are â€œmoldedâ€. What they mean is injected moldedâ€¦ like the rest of their coolers. The Esky series is basically the original $30 Coleman plastic cooler thatâ€™s in your basement that youâ€™ve had for the last 14 years. The plastic is roughly 1/32 of an inch thick. If it werenâ€™t for the rubber feet, I could easily see someone rubbing through the bottom corners of the cooler after some normal wear on a driveway.
At the end of the day Iâ€™m still glad I didnâ€™t get a YETI. But I should have just spent $25 more dollars and gotten a few less quarts and gone with the Engels.
I hope this helps you hard-core cooler kings out there.
