Coleman makes quality coolers in a variety of sizes and styles. The company has a reputation for making reliable, sturdy coolers that sell for a decent price and last many years. When choosing a Coleman cooler, size should not be your only consideration. Look at the way the handles are designed, as some are easier to carry than others. Larger coolers generally have two side handles, whereas smaller coolers often come with a single handle or shoulder strap. Some Coleman coolers have added features, such as cup holders on the lid or a spigot you can use to drain water from melted ice. Coleman’s stainless steel cooler hinges may last longer, but the plastic hinges are still a sturdy choice.
