Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed and works great! I have had this 80 QT wheeled cooler for a year now and I would buy this again hands down. I have brothers-in-law that have other high end brands (Yeti, others) and I would never purchase those brands at those prices without the features of the Pelican. They all work great but portability is huge and I don't always have someone to help me lug these super heavy suckers across america (camping, boat, pool, car travel for work). Pelican is designed so much better than Yeti. The lid is superior - has drink holder, the lock mechanism is superior, the wheels are a necessity and are not hard plastic but have a slight softness to them that keeps them from making that cheap plastic wheel noise, the extension handle is long enough to make it easy to use and functional, the bottom has skid resistant feet that elevate the cooler and keeps the wheels off the ground and they really work. You can attach a hose to the drain to make it easier to drain without having to relocate the cooler (great when I travel for work and have this in the back of my van for a week at a time). I read reviews on this sucker and purchased a metal organizer bin with a lid that nests inside the top lip of the cooler to keep some items separate (i.e. raw meat, etc) that someone purchased 3rd party and it works great. And the bottle opener actually is very high quality and works really well - I thought this was a novelty but it came in super handy on a boat outing when the only bottle opener was on the other boat. I choked on the price but now find myself wanting a smaller wheeled version for smaller outings. The only negative about the wheels is that it does take away some space inside the cooler vs a cooler the same size without wheels. Also, my back is not what it used to be and the wheels allow me the flexibility to do what I need to do without asking for help. I can't imagine paying a similar price for a Yeti designed from the 1960's with no additional function than just keeping things cold. If I was purchasing a cooler that would never move I'd go for one without the wheels... but still would buy a Pelican.
