I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. Use / Pros - This cooler is pretty cool! This medium sized cooler supposedly hold 51 cans, although I didn't use that many cans to truly test it out. We went camping and put in a 12 pack of beer, ice, snacks, and water really easily...it holds way more than you think! Even when the ice melted on day two, it still kept the water and items cold enough for our satisfaction. It's strong enough to sit on, which is nice when you're camping so you don't have to bring another chair or sit on the ground. It has two handy drink holder on top because who doesn't love that! It's a nice mid-size cooler when you want something that holds more than 6 drinks, but doesn't take up your whole trunk like full size chests. Perfect for a long weekend adventure, although might be overkill for an afternoon picnic. Cons - While the cooler as a whole seems strong, the lid is held on by plastic hinges which don't seem super sturdy...I guess only time will tell. Also, when you open the cooler, the lid doesn't stay open, it shuts immediately because of the hinges, which is annoying when you're trying to load the cooler or search for a drink. Not a deal breaker because of other good qualities, but I did find myself bothered by it multiple times. And unlike larger chest coolers, it doesn't have a valve to release water from the bottom...again, not a deal-breaker, but would be a nice feature. Luckily we wanted to keep the cold water in the cooler for this trip so it was fine. Overall - Really like this mid-sized cooler, definitely worth the purchase and would recommend it for the size...just wish that lid didn't close on me and the hinges seemed more sturdy.
