    Love my new 80

    Comments about Engel High Performance Rugged Cooler - 80qt.:

    Fantastic cooler, performs as advertised. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. I gave 4 out of five stars only because it would be great to see a Made in the USA seal, instead of Thialand. Born in Jupiter FL, made in Thialand. Do the right thing Engel, bring that work home.

    I wouldn't buy again

    Comments about Engel High Performance Rugged Cooler - 80qt.:

    I've never been a follow the pack guy and in fact I like going a different direction than the rest of the herd, so when I found Engel coolers a few years ago I was happy to get a product that wasn't something the "me too" crowd had. The price was a little better than the big name competitor and the size fit my boat perfectly. 2 years later I can't say that I'm overly pleased with my decision. I've had to replace both latches on my cooler. One of the plastic carry handles broke while I was carrying the cooler (which was only about 2/3 full) by myself but worst of all the outer shell cracked. I'm not sure if the crack is the result of me standing on it, I only weigh 200 lbs, or from it sliding around in the back of my truck. Either way, I would expect more durability from a product that is supposed to be as good or better than their competitors. The Engel cooler has some features I prefer over the competition. The fact that you don't have to remove the drain plug to drain water is a plus. Initially I liked the snag proof latches, unfortunately they don't hold up. The other features are pretty comparable to the competitors. Ice retention is good however that generally isn't my concern as most of my trips are day trips and any decent cooler will hold ice for the 8-12 hours that I needs. I'm not especially hard on my equipment and in fact I was without a boat for 9 of the 24 months I've owned the cooler and it was only used a handful of times when it wasn't on the boat. I recently got a new boat and I want to get another cooler but considering the issues I've had with my Engel I will go a different direction this time. Admittedly I did not contact Engel regarding these issues. I've never really had much success with warranty claims and I prefer to buy products that hold up as opposed to ones that I have to fight to get replaced because they didn't.

    Great cooler

    This is a top of the line cooler. I have bought plenty of coolers in my life. This out does them all. Keeps our drinks cold in this hot Florida keys weather. Danger Charters tested and approved.

        Comments about Engel High Performance Rugged Cooler - 80qt.:

        Got this as a gift as was very excited. First one that came to the house was bright white yet I noticed the box had a gouge in it and sure enough the delivery service (UPS) had put a nice gouge in the side of the cooler...not Engel's fault. I contacted Engel and after 3 weeks of hounding them they finally told me they would be sending another one. Second one that came was not enough white, more like a dingy yellow-white. Scrubbed and scrubbed but it appeared to be maybe a dirty mold was used when they made it. Two weeks later they said they would replace it. Third one was dingy colored also, UPS gouged it too, and was not level on the floor (rocked side to side). A fourth one came and it was not as dingy and UPS dinged this one too but tired of the hassle so we kept it. There are random black & brown marks throughout the plastic...when you pay $400 for a cooler it should look better than a $60 Igloo. Each time they sent a new one we had to have a $400 charge on our credit card. We had to call Engel EVERY TIME in order for them to refund the card...even after 4 weeks. Their customer service is horrible and their coolers are going down in quality.
