Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad gasket I have had this cooler for about a week now. When I received the cooler, I noticed the gasket was not intact as I would imagine. The gasket was not one complete circle so where the two ends met there as a decent gap. When the cooler tipped over in my car it leaked water everywhere. The gasket also is rippled and not uniform throughout. See pics, it's hard to describe. Not the quality I would expect from Pelican.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little cooler I originally had a Pelican 45 cooler. It was a monster, and filled up most of the rear hatch of my 4Runner. I downsized to this 20, and it has been smooth sailing. It fits behind the front seat perfectly, which I think was the idea with this shape. It doesn't hold ice as long as the 45 did, but that is to be expected because of the thinner walls (less insulation) and smaller size. I only go out for a few days at a times anyways, so holding longer than that is not really needed. It's much lighter and easier to move around than the 45. My girlfriend could not move the 45 by herself, but this 20 is doable. It's also the perfect size for an extra seat in camp. The latches feel so much more secure and are a breeze to use versus the rubber dongles used by competitors. I looked at the gasket on my lid, and there is about a 2mm gap. This hasn't caused any issues, but I will keep an eye on it. One thing to note is that these coolers should not be driven around inside a vehicle without being properly secured. During a panic stop or roll over, that 20-30 pound indestructible box is a serious projectile. Please tie them down to something. Lastly, Pelican products are made in the USA, which is important and makes Pelican stand out among it's peers.

As the reviewer stated that the seal does not butt up against the end of the gasket will this affect performance.

Asked by: hucknboots
Looking at the Pelican website, which shows the seal in multiple pictures for this product, I don't see a gap in any of the seals. I think Jenna got a bad sample and should either return it, or contact Pelican for a replacement seal. They claim to have a lifetime warranty. Probably something to check first hand before buying.
