Gear Review: 7 New Coolers for 2014

May 28, 2014

Known as “coolers” in name only, these glorified plastic tubs are woefully incapable of keeping their contents cold or withstanding even a whisper of abuse.Recently, however, outdoorsmen have begun to clamor for quality builds that are capable of carrying significant loads and keeping them on ice for days, price be damned. Manufacturers have responded by flooding the market with a number of premium ice lockers.Today’s rotationally molded coolers are remarkable examples of innovative engineering, with price tags to match. These new-age chillers are super tough—many of them capable of withstanding the wrath of an ill-tempered grizzly—while nestling their cargo in icy comfort for a week or more at a time.We recently rounded up seven manufacturers’ 100-quart coolers (or the one from their lineup with a capacity nearest that mark) and put them to the test.Rating Key: ★ ★ ★ ★ - Excellent; ★ ★ ★ - Good; ★ ★ - Fair; ★ - Poor

    by
