My only issues with this product are with the claims that they use a closed cell foam and how well it keeps ice. These are interrelated issues. In my experience, closed cell foam resists collapsing when squeezed, and the foam in the AO collers does not. It could be the foam is so thin, it doesn't behave like the closed cell foam I am familiar with. Either way, as a result, in areas where theres any weight or pressure applied by the contents, there is reduced insulation in that area which means ice melts quickly. I called the company about this and got evasive and unsatisfactory answers. It is a shame because otherwise, the coolers are very well made. I would like to see West Marine investigate this claim on behalf of their customers. If my suspicions ae true, West should confront them as they have other vendors making false claims.
I got one of these 2 years ago at a show. I now have 3 and many of my friends got them after seeing how great mine was. Last summer I had one of these left in my car over 36 hours in high heat. Car had to be 95+ inside. When I went to take stuff out of the cooler it was still mostly full of ice. Great product!!
