High End Cooler Reviews
Engel is probably one of the most recognizable brands when it comes to high quality coolers. Their top end coolers are some of the very best money can buy. We think that the DeepBlue series is particularly impressive.
Engel claim best in class ice retention for these coolers and say that they will keep ice for between 8 and 10 days! The lid is bear resistant so this cooler isn’t likely to get raided by a visitor to your campsite while your back is turned. The rotationally molded construction means these coolers are tough as nails so you’ll probably be leaving them in your will.
If you’re looking for top of the line coolers then with Yeti you’re spoilt for choice. If we had to choose though we’d pick one of the Tundra Series coolers every time.
Yeti makes these from the same material that whitewater kayaks are made from and use their PermaFrost insulation. This means that if your cooler happens to end up in the water and goes over the rocks and rapids it’ll still be in one piece when you find it and your beers will still be cold. The hinges on these coolers are also the best we’ve seen anywhere.
You can’t talk quality coolers without mentioning Grizzly. These guys know how to build coolers that are tough and keep working forever. Their 40 Quart cooler is not the most expensive but it’s right up there with the best of them.
The clips that Grizzly use on this coolers ensure that when you shut the lid it stays shut and keeps the cool air in. It will hold 56 cans with ice and the rubber feet on the bottom make sure that it doesn’t slide all over the place when you’re driving. Another great example of a high performing cooler that’s made in the USA.
Pelican are better known for being the go to guys for protective cases and rugged holdalls. With the ProGear Elite Cooler they’ve combined this knowhow with expert cooler design to produce one of the best top of the range coolers we’ve seen.
It’s got 2 sets of handles and you’ll need them because it’s heavy. This is not the cooler you take to the beach. It’s the one you position when you set up camp and get ice out of 8 to 10 days later. The lifetime guarantee these come with gives you a good idea of how confident Pelican are in this product.
The Igloo Yukon Cold Locker is the ultimate when it comes to long term cooling. The 3-inch lid and 2-inch body are filled with polyurethane insulation to ensure that the contents stay frozen for ages. Igloo say this cooler will keep ice for 10 days!
The Yukon Cold Locker is as tough as the territory it’s named after and Igloo went all out to make sure this product was super durable. I particularly liked the Cool Riser Technology design. This refers to the way the underside of the cooler is shaped. It is slightly raised to prevent the base of the cooler making contact with warm surfaces. This cooler works so well you’ll think it was plugged into a power outlet!
While each of these coolers have specific features and benefits there is one thing that they all have in common: Quality.
The design elements and superior materials that these manufacturers have used result in the top high end coolers available on the market. These coolers are durable and do the job that you bought them for without having to fuss with them. Yes they cost a bit more (sometimes a lot more) than some cheaper brands but you won’t be sorry you spent the money. Buying one of these top end coolers means you probably won’t ever be buying another cooler ever again.
