Review: Igloo Coolers

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval

For over 60 years, Igloo® has remained the #1 brand in the coolers industry worldwide. Since originating the cooler category in 1947, the Igloo brand has been synonymous with quality and durability. Research shows that three in every four U.S. households own at least one Igloo cooler-making Igloo the most popular cooler brand in the U.S.!

Igloo began in 1947 as a small metalworking shop with two employees. The company produced metal water coolers designed to replace wooden drinking buckets used by construction workers, oilfield workers and longshoremen on the docks. By 1962 they offered the first all-plastic ice chest. They offer coolers in soft sided or hard sided and have a diverse range of sizes, from personal size to group camping appropriate.

Duo-Newport, Lunch Tote

Always looking for that lunch tote that doesn’t scream school lunch bag?? The Duo-Newport line by Igloo is a classy line with classic appeal. It is constructed out of 20 oz canvas detailed with leather and antique brass hardware.

With the style come everything we love about Igloo- Polartherm insulation, and leak-resistant, antimicrobial heat-sealed liners. It also features a zippered front pocket for valuables. It can hold up to six cans.

While this is a great lunch tote to take to everyday, it was great to take on a long car ride- what a great alternative to having to stop for an unhealthy, over-processed fast food lunch! Also kept beverages cold so I didn’t have to spend the hyper-inflated prices of gas station refreshments!

Island Breeze 28 Roller

This cooler is the perfect size for picnicking, over night or weekend camping, or car travel. It holds up to 38 cans or 2, 2-liter bottles standing straight up. With Telescoping handle and soft-ride sport wheels, it is very easy to transport without over-exerting. The push-button locking handle is quick and easy to use and is large enough that it requires little dexterity. In addition to the pull out handle, there are also molded-in side carry handles- nice and large and soft to hold.

This was a great cooler for weekend travel- when you need a cooler for just a couple people for a couple days. Also great for a day trip to the beach or park! It was very easy to transport!

Beach Tote 30 Summer Living

Looking for the perfect beach tote or picnic bag? This soft side cooler is a perfect size for a day excursion. It features a leak-proof, heat sealed liner that keeps perishables warm or cool all day. It also has a zippered interior pocket made from water resistant material, and when you have finished your beach picnic, it can also double as a carrier for damp towels or swimsuits at the end of the day!

It has nice styling, constructed from a casual, wicker-like material with soft-touch webbing handles.

It also has an easy-to-clean interior liner that meets US FDA food contact safety regulations. This bag was tested on a 10-hour road trip with two meals stops and multiple entry for sodas and snacks. Everything stayed nice and cool and the food tasted much better than the dreaded fast food road trip alternatives!

Glide Pro Roller 110

Love the convenience of having a large cooler at your campsite, tailgating, or for extra space when the relatives come for Thanksgiving but have not being able to lift it without throwing out your back and suffering back pain for weeks after? Igloo has the solution- Glide™ coolers are fitted with expertly engineered patented horizontal telescoping locking handles. This reduces the lifting force for users by 50%, making it a one-person job to transport a fully-loaded cooler by pushing or pulling. You’d be surprised at how little effort or strength it takes to pull this fully loaded large cooler! The oversized rally wheels allow for easy transport and a smooth ride- they work really well on walk in campsites!

The thick Ultratherm™ foam in lid and body provide MaxCold® 6-day performance- keeping ice for up to 6 days! That is key when camping! There are cushioned, comfort-grip side handles and easy release thumb levers. They threaded drain plug allows for easy draining, cleaning, and optional hose hook up.

This cooler is big, yet easy to handle and durable enough to last through a lifetime of camping, tailgates, and family encounters!
