Coleman: Cool, Cooler, Coolest
We know it's not quite here yet, but summer is just around the corner. That means it's not too early to start thinking about how, exactly, you're going to transport all that delicious beer you need to drink to the beach, camping, sporting events, and parties. You could take the old "rip open the case and dump in some ice" route, but you'd rather go with something a bit classier than that wouldn't you? Wouldn't you?
Whether you're shopping based on capacity, durability, portability, or price, we've got you covered with our roundup of big-ass coolers from Coleman. Mouse over each link to see an image and price.
Coleman 62-Quart Xtreme Wheeled Cooler (Blue) - This Goliath holds 85 cans plus ice, and the claim is it can store ice up to five days in 90 degree heat. Between that and the portability factor added by the two wheels on the other end, you don't even need to bring friends wherever you go with those 85 beers.
Coleman 54-Quart Steel Belted Chest Cooler (Stainless Steel) - Some days, you need extra security for your beers. You can sleep easily knowing your cooler's contents are safe, even in bear country...or if your roommate's been trying to get at your beers. Plus, it's leak proof, rust proof, and "completely redesigned for today's active lifestyle," whatever that means.
Coleman 150-Quart Cooler Marine with Rope Handles (White) - Not quite so portable but nothing to sneeze at if you're on a boat, this bad boy holds 223 cans and over 50 pounds of ice. Plus, it's big enough to hold 2 liter bottles upright...y'know, for the folks who don't drink beer.
Coleman Stainless Steel Party Cooler - What you give up in portability with this bad boy is made up for by the cool factor...and the built in bottle opener. Plus you can use it to hold up to 50 beer cans/bottles, or you can fill it with over 10 gallons of liquid (read: punch).
Coleman 36-Qt. Electronic Cooler With Radio & Clock - This cooler doesn't hold as many beers as the others, maybe, with capacity for only 46 cans, but it makes up for that with its high tech appendage. This guy offers AM/FM radio with a weather band, plus an MP3 plug and headphone jack and internal speakers.
