CONS
  • Despite the many advantages to this unit, there are some downsides that should be considered when evaluating the Coleman 50 Quart Xtreme 5 Wheeled Cooler. See below—

  • The plastic handle to the Coleman 50 Quart Xtreme 5 Wheeled Cooler does not lock into place when extended, causing it to easily slip back down.
  • The interior of the cooler is less spacious than expected due to indentations.
  • The handle is not as sturdy as the body of the cooler, leading to it breaking easily and bending when trying to pull the cooler.
  • The drain does not easily drain all of the water in the cooler, as it is too high up.
  • The grip on the lid could be improved to make it easier to open the cooler (particularly for children or adults with greasy hands).
  • The lid does not stay up on its own, so it needs to be held up in order to get items out of the cooler.
