We bought this cooler to replace a Coleman cooler we purchased about 2 years ago. The Coleman cooler was very good the first year, but apparently the insulation broke down someway and the ice would melt very quickly. This Igloo cooler is doing much better about the ice not melting. We can pack it up and put in two 20 lb. bags and there is still ice in it after 3-4 days. This was during the 90+ degree weather we had. I would recommend this cooler to anyone who wants a decent cooler.
Ample room for 6', 210 lb guy with broader shoulders. Stuff size a little on the large side for backpacking. Great bag so far, haven't washed it yet. But it's holding up great especially for the price.
I would return this except I used it! Since I have used it one night I can tell you it was darn near impossible to turn inside this bag. I'm only 4'11" tall and 110 lbs so I'm not sure if a bigger person should even bother ordering this bag. It was all the cover I needed in 39* weather so I may use it as a blanket.
I was very excited to receive this product from the many good reviews I read and from a buddy of mine that actually bought one too, however, during my initial setup the very top right corner on the chair back side ripped!!! My initial thought was "#@% I did something wrong" but upon further investigation into the inside of the tent I noticed that the tent was sewn wrong thereby attaching the side of the tent to the corner further down than it was meant to be. Imagine my sigh of relief...I'm hoping this is just a rare occurrence because the rest of the tent cot is very well made (and I checked EVERYWHERE). I did a replacement request *** within 20 minutes of opening box so I'm crossing my fingers this will be an easy exchange...but onto the review. I like the foam mattress that it comes with but I may still add another thin air mattress as I prefer the comfort for my back. The head room that this oversized tent cot comes with is just right for my 6 ft (200+ lb) frame while sitting toward the center but you wouldn't be able to hang a light there at the same time. That was a nice surprise too, that it even included ties at the very center to do so. There's 4 hanging pockets on each end (3 small and 1 large that has a velcro closure) but they face toward the outside of the tent and seems it would be a little awkward getting things into or out of unless you were grabbing whatever out from the outside when the ends are open but this is a very small inconvenience for myself. There's a small vent door on the top center of each side door that is secured with velcro running down the sides to keep it open or closed at any position that I imagine is to cut back on condensation inside (very clever) or just for someone else to peek inside and talk to you (Ummm, ok) as it is located on the outside portion of the doors. The poles up top are simple enough with ends that are simply placed into the holes on plastic connectors at each end and are held in place by plastic connectors that just snap onto the poles, very convenient for small areas as you don't have to start feeding the poles through anything. The zippers have color coordinated cords for easy opening (black for outside tent portion and yellow for inside mesh). The legs come with sturdy plastic feet attached to them with teeth for traction. I knew that it was a 4-in-1 system (chair, lounge, cot and tent cot) when buying it but found that the chair configuration was somewhat larger than I had hoped for as I cannot sit all the way back and have my feet on the ground at the same time. Maybe this would be better for someone larger than myself as there is plenty of room on this cot to fit those individuals but I have to scoot up and forgo using it comfortably and it's not the reason I got this to begin with. Everything else works just fine though. All-in-all this tent cot is what I hoped for and more (minus the defect) and once I get my replacement I will definately give the quality of this product an EXCELLENT and refer it to all my friends. I hope this helps others looking to buy this.
