Coleman Coolers Are Wildly Affordable Right Now
Rotomolded coolers, the kind you can get from companies like Yeti, OtterBox, Orca and Pelican, are indestructible and will keep contents cold for days. But they’re also expensive — a 40- to 50-quart cooler can cost as much as $350. There’s something to be said for cheap coolers though, they kind you’ve seen at barbecues and tailgates (red or blue bottom, white lid). A cheap cooler won’t keep ice frozen for three days, and if you hurl it off a cliff, it’ll probably break. But it will work for short-term gatherings, and depending on the size, it’ll cost less than $50. Actually, if you buy one from the selection of Coleman coolers currently on sale at REI, it could cost less than $20.
