      Comments about Engel High Performance Rugged Cooler - 65qt.:

      This 65qt has been an excellent cooler for summers here in TX. Because of how well insulated it is I do bring it in from the garage the day before I head out and let it cool down. It has held three bags of ice for up to seven days while out. As a result it weighed the same as a semi, but it is expected considering the quality build.

      Comments about Engel High Performance Rugged Cooler - 65qt.:

      Filled with ice to go camping and fishing. Took a bag of ice out every day for 5 day's. Temp. was in 90's, mid to high 70's every night. On the 6th day there was some ice still left. I was real happy with this product. I would buy it again.

      Comments about Engel High Performance Rugged Cooler - 65qt.:

      If you want a cooler that will last for years and that has the strength to stand up to all forms of abuse, you won't go wrong with an Engel. The Engel 65 is now the seat at my center console; you can sit on it and it is rock-solid.

      This cooler has 2" thick foam insulation all-around. It's white to reflect the sun. It has a rubber gasket all around the lid to form an air-tight seal when the latches are snapped shut. If your ice is melting fast in this cooler, it's your fault.

      It's a cooler, not a magic box of cold. If you let it sit in the sun and then dump in warm sodas and beer with a bag of ice, and open it every ten minutes, then of course the ice will melt. Remember, a cooler is to keep things cold, not make them cold.

      As to the reviewer who complained about Engel being "combative" and not standing behind the cooler, it's because they have to deal with people all day who don't know how to use a cooler.

      Yes, this cooler is much heavier than some cheap, blow-molded cooler. That's because it's a professional quality cooler. It's got structural reinforcement to allow it to work for years as a seat, step, or casting platform. Tell me when you see a cheap blow-molded cooler with the words "IGBC Certified Bear Resistant Container" on it.

      Cons

      • Is not worth 5 time more
      • Weighs more that Igloo
      • Will not stand behind
      • Won't keep Ice as stated

      Best Uses

      • Large Boats

      Comments about Engel High Performance Rugged Cooler - 65qt.:

      This cooler soulded like an answer to the high consumption of ice during the summer when on the water. However, it does not and will not keep ice as stated in the advertisements. It will not hold any longer than the Marine Igloo we also own. Customer relations is VERY proor and combative. The President is also combative and would not stand behind their product.

      I would NOT recommend this product if you are boating with summer temperature in the 90's. You will not ever get better use that your standard Marine Igloo.
